Oven pilot light is lite .but oven does not ignite.model# mpf300pbwc


Hello, The thermocouple may have buildup on it. Try to chean the thermocouple which is the small rod going through the oven pilot. You will have to blowout the pilot and clean the thermo with fine frit sandpaper or some guys use a dollar bill. Just shine it up light the pilot and see if it lights.

I want to light the pilot light for the oven


How old is the stove-- for most ovens these days have electric Glow Ignitors-
Are you sure yours has a gas pilot?

If so-- there has to be a way of pushing in a 'pilot' button, to get the gas to start,
and there has to be a hole or area you can get to the gas burner/pilot, with a match, at the time you are pushing in on the Pilot lite

Let us know what you find--

Pilot light is lit both on oven and stove top... previous user says to turn on gas and lite "sensor" or "2nd pilot" it stays lit as long as oven knob is on but oven burner does not light. "sensor" goes out...


On standing pilot ovens the maker uses a safety device to kill the gas in case the pilot blows out. As long as the pilot is lit the gas safety magnet hold the gas flap open inside the safety valve.To save energy the pilot has 2 flames. The standby pilot keeps the cooper/nickel probe/sensor warm so the oven will light faster, the 2nd pilot is much larger, only appears when the oven control is turned on and this is what opens that valve. So when you turn the oven knob on the gas leaves the control and goes downtown to burner land. If that pilot is lit and that slow opening flap inside that valve is open, then the gas will enter the burner tube and ignite when it hits the pilot. Pretty slick ain't it? So what can go wrong? With age the flap inside the safety valve will wear out, get weak, work a little, then take forever to light and eventually just goes bye bye. When you get ready to replace the valve it ain't gonna be adjusted exactamundo, you gotta tweak it. To do so after bubble testing for leaks and lighting the pilot you turn it on and observe the flames. It needs to be not more than half way up the flame spreader. If it is to small of a flame it will take forever to bake even a pie shell, if it is too much their could be burned bottom and in some cases fire hazards. OOPs.

Can't get pilot light to stay lite in oven


make sure the thermocouple is positioned above pilot light this part needs to be heated up by the pilot light to keep gas going to the pilot light. if the thermocouple is positioned above pilot light and it doesn't stay light, replace thermocouple.

When i ignite the oven and let go of it the gas goes out all the time..


Hi

It's usually down to carbon clogging the pilot light. This typically happens where gas is on a meter like we have. Everytime the gas runs out, dust and other particles get sucked along into the nozzle where the pilot light is.

The best solution is to try cleaning it. I'd recommend trying to run the vacuum cleaner nozzle over it if you can (with it turned off of course) and perhaps even try cleaning it with a toothbrush (preferably an old one of course as nothing tastes worse than soot) and if this fails, let me know.

Good luck!
