REmove bottom panel from stove. shut gas off for at LEAST 5 min. Longer is better. Then placel open flame above gas nozzle, slowly turn to ignite posiiton. After it is lit, wait 30 seconds and turn to on positon.
If by chance this model doens't have a knob for this, then turn gas valve off for 5 min, let fumes evaporate, light flame, place over nozzle, turn gas on.replace bottom oven panel slowly.

Most modern stoves no longer have a pilot. The problem is more than likely caused by a bad igniter on the bake manifold. The following link explains igniter types and how to replace one:
Modern stoves are equipped with either a glow-bar or spark type igniter. These igniters do become weak with age and fail. This tends to be more common with the bake feature because it gets used more often. If the igniter is worn to the point that it longer produces the correct current potential or spark, the gas valve will not open and you will not have ignition. This is actually a designed safety feature that prevents free flowing gas from entering the oven cavity without ignition. Such a condition would be dangerous and could cause a flash ignition or explosion.
If the model number you have this listed under is correct, you can see an illustration of your stove at appliancepartspros.com. Just type in the model number and look under the "Gas Burner Parts" section for item number 28 (part #AP2014008).
If you have questions, or require additional assistance, please post back and let me know. I hope this is helpful to you.

hi, there is an orfice for the oven located on the gas valve. If you are using LP gas, the orfice should be turn down all the way (counter clockwise). If you are using natural gas, the orfice should be turned out about 2-1/2 turns. Was this oven set up to be used with one gas and noe is being used with another? If so, you will need to do more then adjust orfices. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

SOURCE: Magic chef oven pilot light out
Hi, If the oven has a standing pilot too, Open the bottom door and locate the main burner. Follow the burner toward the rear of the oven and there will be a flame switch attatched to the burner. Hold the flame near the flame switch and the gas should ignite.
Some model do not have a standing pilot in the oven. Please get me your model number off the label located around the opening of the lower door so I can look this up and instruct you better.

No pilot light need to be ignited. You may need a new ignitor. It might not be catching. If you pull the bottom oven plate off you can see the ignitor on the side of the burner and see if it is in its place or broken or just plain old. It is a simple fix. You can buy a universal ignitor or contact Viking and they will sell it to you. Its only two wires and can do it yourself if you are somewhat technical. Good luck.
