Question about Kitchen Ranges
I can't get the pilot light on the inside of my older trailer model white westinghouse oven to stay lit and when we light it by hand there is a clicking noise that does not stop.

you need to check the amp draw on the ignitor.. if it is between 3.5 -5.2 amps your gas valve is bad..if not the ignitor is bad..YES theignitor can glow and still be bad due to lack of amp draw to open the valve..check that and let me know

If there is any adjustment, it would be a small screw on the oven control accessible with the oven control knob removed. This adjustment affects the size of the top burner pilots, but I'm not sure about the oven. The oven pilot orifice may have an obstruction, or if the flame is actually normal size where it covers the thermocouple when it burns, you may have a thermocouple problem.

Take a very small wire and clean out the pilot holes. Then find the pilot flame adjustment screw and re-set your pilot to 1/4 inch flame.

The oven pilot is accessible through the broiler door, (you're pretty much laying on the floor to light it) or through the oven bu removing the oven bottom panel. To remove the oven bottom, place fingers in holes near the door, and apply pressure to slide the bottom toward the rear, and lift when the front (by your fingers) comes free. Remove completely and set aside. You should now see a flame spreader (V-shaped metal pan) retained by one or two winged screws. Removing the screws allows removal of the spreader. This exposes the burner, complete with pilot. There is two tubing lines to the pilot assembly, one about 1/4 inch dia. and one much smaller. the one at the end of the 1/4 inch tube is the pilot. The piece at the end of the really thin tube is the thermocouple. You have to heat the thermocouple to get the gas to come on to the pilot. A match just won't do it as you need to apply a flame to the thermocouple for about 30 seconds or so. Heat the thermocouple until the pilot will self-sustain. When the pilot stays on on it's own, put it all back together. If you elect to just go through the broiler, again heat the thermocouple until the pilot will self-sustian.
