Clean the jet of the gas supply. Clean off the pilot light jet. Clean the tips of the igniter. Carefully clean all of those things with a little rubbing alcohol. Make sure the pilot jet is not clogged!

I have two magic chef model 6157wuw ranges in my house which operate on propane. The stove burners work perfectly however the ovens produce no heat, no smell of propane and no sign of a pilot or glowing...


It sounds like your propane line is obstructed or your igniter has failed. If your igniter has failed, the propane will not flow until a heat source, from your igniter, has heated a sensor to let the unit know to allow propane to flow. If the propane line is obstructed, it is probably a spider web or eggs from an insect. A pipe cleaner is the best way to remove these obstructions. It would be advisable to have a qualified technician look at your unit.

I have a Waterford gas log stove. The pilot light is on and working. The stove won't turn on either when it's called on by the thermostat or when I switch the stove to "on".


You have a bad thermostat is what sounds like when you turn it on yourself there is a electric valve that opens to make work and it is not getting the signal or you have something in the line feeding it.

Napoleon Fireplace propane Pilot won't light main burner even though gas flows in?


  • I'm going to assume your fireplace has a pilot light.
  • Follow the little holes in the burner that lead to the pilot light.
  • Make sure the pilot flame is pointing directly at the closest burner hole. (adjust if necessary).
  • Often, you will need to sprinkle a layer of "glowing embers" in this area. The embers will help the gas travel to the pilot light and ignite.
  • Always start your propane appliance on "High" never "Low". Cold propane likes to drop to the bottom of the firebox and accumulate until it reaches the pilot (this is called delayed ignition). Keeping it on "high" will help the fuel travel over to the pilot without buildup.

How do you start the oven on a Hardwick propane range?


The bottom part of the stove in the front has a drawer you pull out which has a broiler tray located there. You should be able to fold the door down and use a flash light to look inside . You will find a pilot light set-up there.
The stove I have has the pilot gas on all the time, so as soon as you turn on the gas to the range, the pilot gas is open to atmosphere.
I just light a match and reach in to where the gas piping can be seen and the pilot flame will light.
There is only a small amount of gas coming from the pilot orifice, so there isn't any danger lighting it when the gas is first turned on at the tank.
In fact you may have to wait a few minutes for it to light at first because the propane line maybe full of air. I usually light the top burners of the stove first and by that time the pilot gas for the oven is ok to light.

Propane not getting to oven... stove top works fine..


The pilot light must be lit and stay lit before you will have any propane coming into the oven. This is a safety feature.

Propane was turned off for unrelated problem propane turned back on stove will not lite


If your stove has a standing pilot, it will need to be re-lit.

If this does not help, state the model of your stove.
