RAnge top that you cannot lift up...pilot light is out
Hi - I have a range 4 burner range top that sits on my counter. The unit has been caulked to my counter so I cannot lift it to light the pilot light like you would on a regular oven/stove.
My cleaning lady must have used alot of water or something because since she left last week I have to maually light my burners.
I pulled out the drawer just under the range top -looked underneath and see several holes. I was hoping there would be just one that I could manually light, but there are several, now I am not sure which to light. Would it hurt to just put the flame under each to see which catches?

The ADJ 30 doesn't have an oven. There are 5 top burners and an adjustable underbroiler. The underbroiler used the heat from the top burners to heat the underbroiler. Is it possible that the broiler is sitting on top of some kind of oven?
The surface on this range have standing pilots that must be lit initially. To light them: 1. Be sure the surface burner control knobs are in the "OFF" position. 2. Remove the grates and cook top. 3. Locate the pilot ports and light each of them with a match. Replace the cook top and grates.
Light the oven burner pilot in the following manner: 1. Be sure the oven control knob is in the "OFF" position. 2. Remove the broiler carriage. 3. Hold a lighted match at the top forward section of the pilot (See diagram). No adjustment is required. 4. Replace the broiler carriage.
Hope this helps...
Hello, Your right side burners probably have small vertical lighting holes that are clogged where the pilot lights the burner. Use a sewing needle to poke each hole clean. While you're at it, poke clean the horizontal burner holes just to make sure they are not clogged either. Are there also little tunnels from the burners to each pilot flame? Make sure those are clean inside and attached properly on each end. The pilot flame should be approx 3/8" tall. Compare the working pilot flame to the non-working pilot flames and adjust as necessary. Each pilot has a small aluminum tubing running to it, the adjustment screw will be on this tube. You'll just need a small flat head screw driver to turn it counter-clockwise to increase flame. Hope this helps. Let us know if we can be of further assistance. Douglas
The best way to find out if if your stove has a pilot light, is to lift the top panel of the range . The pilot will usually be located between the burners. Typically you will have two pilots. One for the left and one for the right. The pilot light will ignite with a match without having to turn the burner knobs to the "on" position. Good luck
The main burner valve is the oven valve. The pilot will be next to the burner and you either have to insert a long shiskabob stick ( lit) into the hole or lift up on the bottom of the oven (inside) and you will see the pilot.
To light the pilot(s) you need to lift the top of the range up and use a lighter with the long spout to light the pilot lights that are located midway on each side between the burners. Once the pilots are lit then replace the cover to it's original position and the burners will ight when you turn them on.
If it were the gas regulator, existing flames would go down as more burners are turned on.
There are set screws on the pilot fittings that come out of the manifold, you could try turning those Counter-clockwise to turn the pilots up. (Don't loosen them all the way, they will fall out!) If that doesn't work chances are the pilot stems will have to be replaced to get a higher pilot flame.
Ok the OVEN pilot light is located in the broiler part of the over (at the bottom) If you open the broiler and get a flashlight you will see the pilot light unit for the over at the rear on the top. What a cheap piece of **** these Galaxy ovens are.
