With the help from your site I was able to hold a match under the bar under the oven shelf toward the back and light the pilot. I am SO grateful. I hadn't been able to see it but just held a match toward the back, and it lit.

OK try locating and replacing the Thermistor temperature sensor? Either that or the Thermostat for the Oven?
Please find above several DIY help sites perhaps these can help you.
I MUST caution you too about working on Gas appliances please be very careful indeed. These are NOT to be trifled with, please if in doubt call in a professional, get a qualified gas appliance repair person to have a look at it, any competent professional should be able to sort this out pretty easily. If worried about costings ask for a "Quote" first only.

My mother had the same problem with her Gaffers-Sattler range. No one could figure out what was wrong with it. Her local new appliance repair people said to contact J.E.S. Enterprises, Inc at www.theoldapplianceclub.net. Whew; thank God for that tip. They knew exactly what the problem was and repaired the unit for her. The stove is running again like a workhorse! Here is their number - 805-643-3532.

The pilot is under the bottom oven deck, usually you can lift the front edge, and slide it out, smelling gas without a pilot would be bad, that means either A : your safety is bad, and allowing gas to flow anyway, which requires replacement, and you may as well replace the thermocouple, and clean the pilot. or B : it is old enough it does not have a protected pilot, and you have to manually light it, usually indicated by an open hole in the front middle of the oven deck plate when you open the door, with a tube going to the burner. or C : your oven burner is bad or misaligned with the burner, and is shooting gas away from the pilot area, it would light via an open pilot eventually, but you don't want that. Please let us know, or have a qualified servicer look at it. Happy New Year, and thank you.

Some of the later models (like the Series 24) had a clicker electric light for the burners on to and a Glo Plug that you can see come on before the gas lights.
Ig the Glo Plug does not reach a certain temperature then the Gas is not tunrd on to the Oven Burner as a Safety feature.
If you open the bottom door (Broiler) and look up:
1. Turn the oven on to 200 or 300 degrees. The oven should light
when the Glo Plug reaches a temperature hot enough to light the gas.
If you do not see the Glo Plug come on, or hear clicking when trying to light the top burners you should have a professional look at it if you are not experianced with working on gas applicaences. Never circumvent a safety device to try and make something work, they are there for a real good reason.
