If the igniter does not work (no spark), the steps are:
first reading volts to igniter , and then replacing either igniter or wiring harness.
If instead there is spark but pilot does not ignite, test wiring to knob, valve and pressure regulator.
Igniters and valves for burners are completely independent.
Test and repair must be done by a technician.

Although pilot lights are lit, only one burner works the other 3 do not??? also do not see pilot light for oven??? does it even have one or light by match only??


Hello Linda

All burners have a small hole in the flame spreader which directs a jet of gas to the pilot lights when you turn the burner knob. These get clogged by food residues over time.

Remove all the burners and give them a good soak in hot soapy water. Sometimes you need oven spray first.

All modern ovens have a pilot light. There will be a red button which is usually hidden below the front removable panel or just inside a warming drawer at the top. You press and hold the red button and then light the pilot inside the oven. You continue holding the button for the flame to heat up a gadget called a thermocouple. This is a valve that only allows gas to the main burner if the pilot light is alight.

Take a look at the videos in the link.

When i turn on oven all i smell is gas i cleaned with a wire brush still nothing. also is the pilot light always have to be on and can you see it when oven is off


Most gas ovens that aren't electronic ignition usually have a pilot light.
Usually one in the oven area and one for each burner. (Sometimes shared between two burners.)
These pilot lights must lit at all times...otherwise it won't light up and you'll smell gas.
Usually the pilot light is in the very back of the oven and can be seen with the broiler drawer opened.

There is a small set screw located at the pilot light assembly in the oven and also at every burner.
This allows you to adjust pilot light up or down, thereby letting you set pilot light flame to a level that doesn't get blown out by a draft...or you can turn it off completely.

If you use that set screw to turn off the pilot light gas, you'd need to strike a match to light the oven or burners everytime you needed them.

The top burners light but the oven won't light at all. The stove is 19 years old. I tried turning the oven on and using a lighter thinking the pilot went out but it won't light.


Your oven has a pilot safety. This keeps gas from being sent to the burner(s) if the pilot is not lit. It has gone bad, they all do sooner ar later. You need to get it replaced.

My gas was recently shut off for repairs from the gas company, now its back on and i dont know how to get my oven or stove back on


Ok you did not mention if your oven or stive had pilot lights or igniters. Given you asked the question how too turn it back on I have to assume it does not have electronic igniters. You need to light the pilot lights. There are 2 in top that are between each of the 2 burner sets. If you can not gain access to the pilot light by lifting the top of the stove up you can use a fire starter type lighter and re-light them. Sometimes they will self light if you just use a match on the burners.
As for the oven you can gain access 2 ways to the pilot light. One is to unlatch and remove the oven lower inside panel. The pilot light will be near the burner head. Just light it. The other is to remove the broiler drawer and reach way back in there to light the pilot light.


Again if you have igniter ignition all you have to do is turn on a burner or the oven. Good Luck.

Gas oven Hotpoint RGA 720 I can't light the oven pilot


There is likely some kind of gas line blockage or valve problem. This is not a do-it-yourself fix. Call a repair person.

Maytag gas oven doesn't heat, but oven's pilot light is on.


Get the oven checked out by a professional, if you have a gas leak you can easily blow up the entire house and you with it. I think you have a faulty gas valve based on what you wrote

Oven pilot light won't light


It is usually a bad thermocouple. Mine had only had a weak pilot flame and the problem turned out to be a corroded and leaking pilot gas line. It was leaking whee it enters at the bottom of the oven chamber.
