Question about Ovens
Have a 1950's Chambers Model C range. For years the oven could be ignited with a match and then would work until finished. It sat for years without being used. Now once the oven turns down when the proper temperature is reached, the flame goes out, it cools, then gas comes back on with no ignition, not good. There is a pilot light but it is not lit. It does not appear to be the automatic type, so there is no ''red button'' to hold down. I have found the pilot control valves for the top burners and for the deep-fry well and have them on. There is no similar valve for the oven pilot. How do I turn on the gas and light the pilot lite for the oven?

Take a 1/2 inch open end wrench and tighten the orifice on top of the safety valve.Probably about 2 turns. Then adjust the air shutter to mostly open.

That sounds like you have too high of gas pressure which keeps the oven gas valve from opening...turning on the burners lowers the gas pressure enough to allow the gas valve to open. this is a saftey feature on many gas valves.
To stop that you will need to install a gas pressure regulator which will hold back the gas pressure so the valve can open.
Here is a tip that I wrote about regulators and them failing on the low side, but it will give you and idea what I am talking about and what you need to install in the line to your range.
