How do I check the pilot light and relight it on a 2003 GE Gas range

The igniter coil is burnt out. The thermostat turns it on. If it does not work there will be no gas from the valve. This is a safety feature.

Gas smell when using and not using

follow this steps and fix it. God bless you

f the pilot light on your stove goes out, natural gas may build up in your stove. If your pilot light has gone out, open the kitchen windows and doors for 15 minutes to let the gas dissipate safely then relight the pilot light. Do not relight the pilot light immediately -- striking a match could cause an explosion.
Gas Leak

  • If you can smell the sulfur-like or rotten egg smell of gas, there may be a gas leak inside or outside your home. You might also hear a hissing sound coming from the stove or another appliance or from a pipeline. Outside gas leaks may kill or stunt nearby vegetation. Signs of carbon monoxide poisoning include nausea, dizziness, fatigue and other flu-like symptoms.

f you still smell gas after relighting the pilot light, don't hesitate. Leave your home, along with the rest of your family and pets, then call your utility company or 911 from a safe location. Leave the doors and windows open behind you, especially if the odor is strong or you can hear the hissing of a gas leak. Do not turn appliances or lights on or off or use a phone in your home. Do not strike a match or use a lighter, either. Prevention

Vulcan oven pilot light how to relight

Hello Lynne,
To relight the pilots,start by removing the floor of the oven,then remove the small access panel below the doors. On the main oven burner will be a small pilot burner that probably looks something like this 10_26_2011_9_29_16_pm.jpg
on the gas valve behind that small panel under the doors will be a red button,push that red button and hold it in while lighting that pilot burner...continue tohold that red button for 30 seconds,release it and the pilot should be lit.
Good luck,GENE

How do you light the pilot light on the stove? Model 3627391592


A pilot light will be found on natural gas stoves, fireplaces, clothes dryers, water heaters and furnaces. When the gas is turned off, the pilot light will go out on all of these appliances. After the gas is turned back on, you must relight the pilot light before you can use the appliance. Pilot lights are similar so if you can relight the pilot light for a gas heater you can relight the pilot light for a gas stove or any other gas appliance.

jQuery('.intro .thumbnail').each(function(i,e){ jQuery(e).find('img').one('error',function(){ jQuery(e).remove(); }); }); Instructions Things You'll Need:

  • matches OR flashlight
  1. Locate the gas valve by following the gas line in the appliance. The gas valve will have a large red button or knob and will be easy to see and will be well marked.
  2. Check for a gas leak by smelling the area close to the gas valve. Listen carefully for escaping gas and do not attempt to light a pilot light if there is a gas leak.
  3. Hold down or press the red button or knob on the gas valve while holding a lit match in front of the opening in the gas pilot line. Continue to hold down or press the red button or knob for several seconds after the gas ignites to allow the thermocouple (the sensor for the appliance's thermostat) to heat up.
  4. Repeat step 3 if the pilot light goes out after you release the button or knob. In most cases, the pilot light goes out because the thermocouple did not have enough time to heat up, so give it a few more seconds.
  5. Make final adjustment of the gas flow to the pilot light by turning the red knob. In some cases, no adjustment other than "on" or "off" will be needed.
  6. Turn on our appliance to make sure the pilot light ignites the main gas flow. Replace any covers or close any access doors to the gas valve.
Hope this help?

Thanks for using fixya.

Pilot light is out need to relight it but do not know where it is located

The pilot is located in the bottom of the stove, you will have to remove the bottom drawer, and you will see the pilot in the back, you can relight it there, if there is no bottom drawer you will have to remove the bottom cover inside the oven and this is the location where you can relight the pilot.

There is not a pilot on this range. There is an ignitor and safety valve. Sometimes you can see a burned out ignitor and sometimes you will have to use a meter to check the voltage and continuity of the ignitor and valve coil.

You did say 1948, as in 60 year old range?
Well, gas ranges did not have fancy safety valves or things like that back then. Most likely when you turn on the gas, a small amount of gas begins escaping at the pilot orifice. Then use a long handled lighter to put a flame there. Pilot should light right away.

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
