MOST modern appliances that use gas ignition (including kitchen ranges) no longer have a pilot light. These appliances are now equipped with a burner assembly with electronic igniters. The following link explains a little theory about how these igniters work:
I know the link is for a gas range, but the burner assembly functions are nearly identical, as well as, the type igniters used. If you are having ignition problems it may be a simple matter of a weak or bad igniter.
If you ar referring to whether or not the burner ignites automatically, or if you have to manually light it, the burner assembly will ignite automatically as long as the gas valve, igniter coils and igniter are all functioning properly. It can take up to 90 seconds for the burner to ignite. As the igniter ages, you may experience longer ignition times.
If the model number is correct, you can view an illustration of your burner assembly at appliancepartspros.com. The components I've mentioned are as follows:
Item 4 - Igniter assembly
Item 13 & 14 - Igniter coils (BOTH should be replaced at the same time if found to be defective).
Item 10 - Gas valve assembly.
If you have any questions, please let me know. Include your complete model number if it is different from the one you posted this question under. I hope this information is helpful to you.
