Where is the pilot light for imperial range oven

I have an Imperial 6 burner range, with a convection oven. I need to light the pilot light for the oven, but I am not sure where to look. I have the metal cover flipped open which exposes the on/off oven switch for when you open the door. But I still don't see where to light the pilot. Can you help?

Hello. I will try to guide you, in the area that you described, there should be a pilot safety valve, and usually they have a red button you depress in order to get gas to the pilot. The pilot is usually beyond the safety, if you follow the pipe from the safety, into the burner area, that will lead you to the pilot. Put your match,lighter of choice there, while holding in the red button. wait approx. 30 to 60 seconds, then release. If all is well, your pilot is now lit, however you still may need some attention, like cleaning the pilot and orifice. If not, you will need possibly a thermocouple for the pilot/safety, or a safety. Either of those I would suggest you call a local service company, check your phone book under "restaurant equipment repair"

Hope that helps, and thank you.

Stick the torch or whatever way back on the LEFT hole. You will see the pilot go on. Do not let go of the red button (which you are holding the whole time) for 60 seconds after it's lit.

I have an Imperial gas 6 burner range. All my pots are getting coated in soot. The appliance is 11 years old and this is a new problem.


Old jets are in need of cleaning or replacing because they are not allowing the fuel to be burned completely! If their orifices are too large, too much gas comes through and there is not enough air to use the gas completely.

Range has electric igntion and it will not heat. the ignition and burner will cycle on intermittently then it would shut off. it would do this for 3 times. its a imperial convection oven IHR-4-C model. was...


It sounds like your ignition module is unable to prove flame for some reason. This could be caused by poor positioning of the flame sensor, a bad ground to the burner or to the ignition module. If the flame is not engulfing the flame sensor on the ignitor, the module will attempt to light three times and then lock out. Poor air flow or too much air flow through the burner compartment can blow the flame away from the ignitor as well. Hope this help

How do you light the pilot for the flat top section of our Imperial 6 top stove?


This range has a standing pilot light for the top burners and griddle top. If you look through the small hole under the flat top griddle you can see a small line about 1/4 inch that runs from the main gas manifold to the pilot light about 6 inches back under the griddle top. You will need a tightly wrapped piece of paper or a long match or small wooden stick, like a chop stick. Light the end of your paper, or stick and put it through the hole all the way to the pilot light. It should catch on fire. Whenever the main gas line is on, the gas will flow through the pilot light. If it will not light, there is a pilot light adjustment that is a very small screw in the middle of a 1/2 inch square metal fitting that is screwed into the gas manifold. If the pilot won't light, this screw may be turned all the way in, thus cutting the gas off to the pilot light. If necessary take a very small flat blade screw driver and turn the screw counterclockwise a half turn. That will increase the gas flow to the pilot light. Another way to light the pilot is to put your burning stick or match into the hole near the burner under the griddle plate, then slowly turn the heat valve to the on position. The main burner will light and then the pilot will light off of it. Don't get your face too close to the griddle when you light it, gas can flash back into your face.

On my Imperial gas oven the pilot light ignites but doesn't start the burner


Do you push a red button to light the pilot ? Does the pilot stay on after you hold the button for 30 seconds ? Need more information. Could be the safety... could be the thermocouple....?

Oven gas will not flow with pilot lit


There are basically two types of ranges to deal with:



those with sealed top burners, which are pretty much the standard today, and the conventional, 'non-sealed' ones.
While they operate in much the same way, their conversion is usually different. There are still a few ranges that use adjustable sealed burner orifices, but most are 'fixed' and must be individually replaced to convert each burner from one fuel to another.

(An orifice is simply a small brass fitting with a specifically sized hole very accurately drilled through it, and, if adjustable, has a provision to change the size of this hole by turning closed a threaded portion).

Either way, basically what you're doing when going from natural gas to LP is changing to a smaller orifice to allow for the higher pressure supplied by the 'bottled' gas (The available energy in each ft of gas is different too, but for our purpose here that's not important). Natural gas supplies typically run around a pressure of 5.5 inches water column, while LP runs at twice that pressure, averaging around 11 inches.

The orifice through which the gas travels to the burner must be smaller to accommodate this difference.
Adjustable orifices are simply 'snugged' down, clockwise, with a 1/2 inch open-end wrench, to convert them. Nearly all oven burners use these too - more about that in a minute.
Fixed orifices are replaced, and the good news is: the LP parts are usually included with the new range. On some brands (GE being one), the unused set is attached to a storage point on the stove, and this is a great idea. This way, they can't get lost, and if you ever want to convert back, there they are!
The not-so-good news: these little top burner orifices very often require a metric wrench to remove & install. And some can't be changed without a very slender wrench or nut driver.

How do I turn my oven on!


The oven pilot will need to be lit, On the bottom there is the oven safety valve, it has a red button on it, you must depress the button and hold it with the pilot lit for 60 seconds, when you release the button the pilot should stay lit and the oven will be ready for operation using the thermostat (knob). Please note: if the oven has set unused for some time you may need to hold the red button for a long time to bleed the air out of the lines. The pilots for the top burners are actually right beside each burner. You may need to turn these pilots on, they are controlled by small valves (small brass screws on the gas manifold where the gas valves and knobs are located, look between the knobs). These small screws/valves will open the gas flow to the pilots when turned counter clockwise. If you open these valves and the pilots still do not work, they will need to be replaced. Hope this helps
