If the model number you have this posted under is correct, your range (as well as most all modern ranges) does not have a pilot light. The range uses spark type igniters that are controlled by a spark module for the surface burners and a glow bar type igniter for the oven. The gas flow is controlled by a gas pressure regulator through a safety valve. You can view the burner lay-out for a Tappan range at the following link:

http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/getSubComp.pd?modelNumber=TGF303BWA&productCategoryId=0124002&brandId=1269&modelName=GAS-RANGE&diagramPageId=00002&componentDescription=BURNER&documentId=R0302024&backToLink=Return%20to%20Sub%20Components%20list

If the link does not work, go to searspartsdirect.com and type in your model number. Look under the "Burner" heading to view your range configuration. The spark module is listed a item 8, the surface igniters are listed as item 11A and the oven igniter is listed as item 19. If you need further assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

Can't seem to access Hotpoint Stove Pilot Light? Also is there a second pilot light for the oven?


For the last 10 years or more there are no pilot lights on gas ranges. Modern ranges have an electronic igniter on the burners and a different type on the oven.

How do i light the pilot light for the hayward


The lighting instructions are usually located inside the heater on the inside of the access panel or on the firewall near the gas valve.

Most millivolt heaters require you to turn the gas valve knob to the pilot light position and then depress the knob while lighting the pilot through the pilot hole. This varies depending on the exact model.

Kozy world propane wall heater pilot will not light


This can be caused by several things:

1. The inline gas valve running to the the heater is OFF. Turn the valve ON.

2. The gas control knob on the heater is not exactly in the PILOT position. Unless the knob bottoms
out and you feel strong pressure (other than spring pressure) pushing back at you. It's not exactly
in the PILOT Position. Once the pilot lights, hold the control knob in for 30 seconds to 60 seconds
to allow the Thermocouple to full heat.

3. The pilot is dirty and needs to be cleaned, as do the burners.*

4. The LP Gas Tank is empty or to low to maintain te proper gas pressure.

* Here is a link to a demonstration on how to properly clean the pilot & burners.

I have an Americdan Water Heater 50 gal. gas. 38000BTU the pilot light does not stay lit. what can i do?


Usual problems are:. Bad thermocouple, Bad vent, blowing pilot outl. Too small of pilot flame. Low gas pressure Leaking water heater, dripping on pilot. Bad gas valve. If your water heater is more than 8 years old and the gas valve is bad, I would replace the water heater. IF you decide to replace the pilot or the gas vavle, be sure to mount pilot exactly as is was designed. If you replace gas valve get an exact replacment or a "listed" replacement. If you'rd doing this and it's older, replace the temperature/relief vavle also. Water heaters can be very dangeroius if not properly repaired/maintained.

I cant get the pilot lit...I turn it to pilot...hold down the button and light the pilot..but when I let it go to turn it to "on" the flame goes out.


Are you holding the button down for a minute or so after you light the pilot before releasing the button?

If so, almost certainly, your thermocouple is bad. This is the long tube which runs from the control box to the pilot flame. Remove this tube, take it to the hardware store and get an exact replacement.

Once the thermocouple is replaced, your pilot light should stay on.

I have a ventless gas heater. the pilot lights


It just has a little dust in the pilot safety and that makes it think low oxygen levels are present. Ti correct that situation I flush the pilot safety device with rust buster, I relight the heater with pretty good success. I have a page which shows where to clean and has a nice demo which shows exactly how it works HERE

Imperial fryer IFS-40


I had a very simular problem. My fryer would do exactly as you described, but sometimes the pilot light would stay on until the burners tried to re-ignite and then it would go out.
I finally had to call the gas company. They took the pilot light apart and cleaned it. The fryer works perfect now.
Hope this helps!

Pilot wont light.


Firstly make sure the gas knob is exactly in the pilot mode some are finiky and won't light unless in exactly the right postion. Make sure once lit when pushing down on the pilot knob that you hold it down long enough for the thermocouple to sense the pilot. Barring both of those the most likley culprit is the thermocouple itself is faulty and can easily be removed usally with a couple of screws and a small adjustable wrench.
