How do I lite the oven pilot

If it's an older model with a true pilot light you turn on the gas at supply line valve, open oven door, remove bottom panel to access pilot and burner. Sometimes it's easier to remove broiler drawer on these models but regardless take a lighter and light pilot. Most models are electronic ignitions which if you have it probably needs replaced if it doesn't ignite the burner in under a minute or minute and 15 secs. It could also be a bad thermostat if the burner ignites within the time period described above

I want to light the pilot but do not know how what is the red button for and do you turn on the gas to light pilot?

nope - don't turn on gas at the Range's front control panel to light the pilot lite.
but you do need to turn on the gas to the kitchen range at the plumbers black pipe valve to the Range.

To light the pilot light:
(1) depress the red button (that feeds the gas to the pilot light orifice)
(2) using lighter/match/lit rolled-up newspaper, etc, light the tiny amount of gas coming from orifice
(3) continue to hold dow red button for 1 or 1.5 minutes (this allows heat to bend the bi-metal contact)
(4) after 1-1.5 minutes with a lit pilot light, release the red button - the pilot should remain lit
(5) you're done lighting the pilot lite - turn on the oven (or broiler).

Oven wont light, pilot is lite but the burners wont ignight

Bakers Pride used several different safety valves over the years. If your oven has a pilot valve that has a beige know that you hold in and turn to light the pilot, then after it lights you need to turn the beige know another half round to the "on" setting. If you push in a red button to light the pilot, it may not be getting enough heat on the thermocouple where the pilot flame should be heating it up. Be sure the main gas valve on the front of the oven is turned to the on position also. On some models the pilot will light with the main gas valve in the off position. If you look at the pilot flame while it is burning, make sure that it is hitting the pencil sized thermopile enough to make it glow red. If not bend it slightly to improve the heating.

Can't get pilot light to stay lite in oven

make sure the thermocouple is positioned above pilot light this part needs to be heated up by the pilot light to keep gas going to the pilot light. if the thermocouple is positioned above pilot light and it doesn't stay light, replace thermocouple.

Oven Not Heating Up

if the pilot light is working it must be the thermal bulb is not sensing the heat, you can try and use a long nosed lighter and try to heat the bulb up and turn the gas on and the added heat might help it kick on. Give it a try.

Pilot light still going out

If this oven has a "stack" (where the hot gases & heat vent to your hood) air could be blowing down the stack affecting the pilot. Simple test, Bic lighter lit at the top of the stack in the middle of the opening. If the flame is being sucked down the stack, then you have air blowing the pilot out. How old is the thermocouple on this unit ? Pilot flame heats this up to send a signal to your main gas valve to open up so the burners light. A weak t-couple could be your problem. Hope this helps

Oven does not work.

Just a guess. There may be something called a thermo-coupler which needs to feel the heat of the pilot light before it will allow the gas to turn on. If it's not working ... no gas.
