SOURCE: where is the pilot light for imperial range oven

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.

SOURCE: 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.

Pilot will not light after repeated attemps. Shut main gas line off as book suggested. Re-lit burners and then oven pilot. Pilot only stays lit if holding red pilot button


90% chance your thermocouple is bad.

This should work: http://www.partstown.com/southbend_range/sou1196078

10% chance your red push button safety valve is bad. If it is really hard to push in I would recommend changing that as well.

Tappan 32-1272-10/07056-8509-4080 gas range/oven pilot light works,main oven burner won't come on


You will need to look and see if the igniter is glowing a bright red. If it is weak, the oven will not light. Here is the igniter if you need to order it.

Also check and make sure your getting 3.2-3.6 volts AC to the valve.

We have a Magic Chef gas oven (model # CPL1100BDW) without electronic ignition. The oven isn't working. The oven pilot is out, can't get it to light, and the oven will not light - (obviously)....


Hello & Welcome to FixYa
If the pilot is clean and still won't light then the problem is with the safety valve that won't open and so needs replacement. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

GAS TO STOVE WAS TURNED OFF FOR COST SAVINGS BECAUSE NOT USED. OVEN PILOT LIGHTS WON'T LIGHT CAN'T SEE WHERE HOLE FOR LIGHT IS SO TO BE CLEANED??IT LOOKS LIKE A BLEEDER VALVE FOR BRAKS IS HOLE AT...


To light those pitots remove oven floor& access panel below the doors,for each oven will be a gas valve inside of the panel below the doors and has a red button. push that red button,light pilot inside of oven near the main burner,hold red button for 30 seconds and releas.Pilot should be on,repeat for other oven. If pilots go out after red button was held down for 30 seconds the part called the thermocoupler will need to be replaced

How do I change the pilot light as it is not working anymore.


It won't be the pilot light, It will be the gas valve control, if the pilot light actually lights but the burners won't light,, then you need to check the thermocouple , its that little round thing that sits inside the flame of the pilot light, and has (usually) a copper tube that runs back to the actual gas valve, If its gone bad, the signal to the gas valve is lost so the gas never gets released so nothing lights

I OWN A WOLF CHR 6-29 GAS STOVE AND WANT TO SHUT THE GAS OFF TO THE OVEN PILOT LIGHT. i AM NOT SURE WHERE THE PILOT VALVE SHUT OFF IS OR WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE.


You should be able to blow out the pilot, after 30 seconds or so the fuel flow should be stopped by the oven safety (usually has the red button on it) If that does not work, the pilot is either fed from the gas manifold on the top (sometimes has a small needle valve to shut off, or it could be fed throught the safety valve. The valve will have an adjustment in it, usually under a cover screw. If the pilot fuel flow does not stop when there is not flame present, You should have the safety valve replaced. This can be a potentially hazardous scenario. Hope this information helps.

I want to light the pilot but do not know how what is the red button for and do you turn on the gas to light pilot?


nope - don't turn on gas at the Range's front control panel to light the pilot lite.
but you do need to turn on the gas to the kitchen range at the plumbers black pipe valve to the Range.

To light the pilot light:
(1) depress the red button (that feeds the gas to the pilot light orifice)
(2) using lighter/match/lit rolled-up newspaper, etc, light the tiny amount of gas coming from orifice
(3) continue to hold dow red button for 1 or 1.5 minutes (this allows heat to bend the bi-metal contact)
(4) after 1-1.5 minutes with a lit pilot light, release the red button - the pilot should remain lit
(5) you're done lighting the pilot lite - turn on the oven (or broiler).

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....?
