You will need to look and see if the igniter is glowing a bright red. If it is weak, the oven will not light. Here is the igniter if you need to order it.

Also check and make sure your getting 3.2-3.6 volts AC to the valve.

The pilot adjustment screw is located on the back side of the oven temperature thermostat. Lift the cook top to access it. Use a flat screwdriver to adjust... counter clockwise= bigger flame.

I suspect you may have a bad igniter. They will still glow nice and hot, but if they are weak the gas valve will not open. This is actually a safety feature. Depending on which type you have, the glow bar igniter is supposed to draw a certain current potential before the gas valve will open. Here's the current readings for both types: Round Glow Bar: 2.7 to 3.2 amps Square Glow Bar: 3.2 to 3.7 amps I would try to to determine if the igniter is good or bad before proceeding with a gas valve replacement. Generally, the igniter is a common fail item. Let me know if this helps.

SOURCE: Tappan gas kitchen oven will not heat

Almost always a weak oven igniter. Remove oven floor by removing 2 screws at rear of floor. Remove flame spreader from burner, if it has one. Turn on oven and see if igniter gets red. It's the caged thing on burner tube. If it does but doesn't light gas, replace igniter. UNPLUG UNIT FIRST!!
Put dishwashing soap on threads of 2 screws holding igniter in place. This will allow it to come out easier. Do-not use oil. It will make your oven smell like a diesel truck.
Remove screws. You will have to remove drawer in front. Underneath you can fin wires from igniter. These will be cut at igniter and connected to igniter with enclosed wire nuts. The 2 wires to igniter go either way.

Hello,

Thank you for bringing me back to the early days of my appliance repair career,now a days every thing uses a electronic ignitor and its been a while since i have seen a free standing pilot :)

As far as your oven,when you turn on the oven does the small pilot light increase in size,if not the oven thermostat is the most likely problem and for the most part the thermostats are no longer avaliable. If the pilot size increases the pilot burner could be not properly heating a small bulb in the pilot burner,the pilot burner could be cleaned by a senior tech that knows how to do it correctly OR the small bulb is heating and what that the bulb attaches to (the gas safety vavle) is not opening to allow gas flow to the main bake burner
Depending on your exact model (what parts were used when it was built) the pilot burner and gas safety valve are still avaliable

Oven does not light


If no gas at all is coming from the oven burner, then it sounds like you need a new gas valve. If the pilot lights but the main burner does not then its the thermocouple.

Where is the pilot light for the oven?


Look inside the oven where the burners come into the oven. Right at that point you should find the pilot light. Here is where you light the pilot.If you smell a lot of gas when you open the door, turn off the gas altogether and let it dissipate. Then turn ot on and then you can light it.
