I could be a number of things.
1. a safety feature signifying a gas leak.
2. a bad thermocoupler.

i recommend calling you gas company to light it [usually free] they will tell you what is wrong.

How do I lite the oven pilot


If it's an older model with a true pilot light you turn on the gas at supply line valve, open oven door, remove bottom panel to access pilot and burner. Sometimes it's easier to remove broiler drawer on these models but regardless take a lighter and light pilot. Most models are electronic ignitions which if you have it probably needs replaced if it doesn't ignite the burner in under a minute or minute and 15 secs. It could also be a bad thermostat if the burner ignites within the time period described above

Amana oven pilot light


If you have a standing pilot and it is not on, you should be smelling gas in the house.
Try lighting it with a BBq lighter directly.
On some stoves, you will have to press a button and hold that button for some time ..over a minute..while you have the light to the middle of the pilot.
Do not proceed to light the pilot until there is no more smell of gas in the oven.

Oven does not work.


Just a guess. There may be something called a thermo-coupler which needs to feel the heat of the pilot light before it will allow the gas to turn on. If it's not working ... no gas.

Gas meter was changed upon relighting,top burners pilots are on but oven not


under each (the) oven behind a panel, is a red button it may be a different color from time. this has to be pushed and held while the pilot light under the oven floor is lit with a match. it has to be held to allow enough heat to activate the thermocouple, which will keep the pilot on. if this does not work there may be an additional problem

Burners on gas stove work but oven and broiler not working


Most ovens, unless they have an electric igniter (does it go tick tick tick when plugged in and turned on? If so, it has an electic ignition.) have a pilot light. In order to keep gas from flowing out, and to prevent a possible explosion when the pilot light has gotten put out, they have an electric thermocouple on them that shuts off the gas when it gets cold. Plug the cord back in, and relight your pilot light by holding the lighter (I recommend a fireplace match or bbq lighter, not a cigarette lighter to prevent singed knuckle hairs!) over the thermocouple for a couple of minutes.
