Hi, Does this oven have electronic ignition?
If the pilot light is out, the burners will not light when you turn it on.
If this does have a pilot light, pop the top up and ight the pilot with a lighter or match. The pilot should be between the 2 burners.
please let me know if I can assist you further.

I have Magic Chef gas oven. Model CPR1100ADW. The pilot light don't light up nor does it come on. I don't smell gas coming from it. I can't figure what it is. Can you help me.


The oven probably has an igniter to light the pilot, and when not in use, shuts the gas off. Unplug the stove to replace the igniter. Enter your stove info and "how to replace oven igniter" on you tube for videos and detailed instructions.

Per landlord, need to light pilot


You would smell the gas, so you're probably ok. Lighting the pilot is not too tough, first you have to get the cover off the furnace. Inside you will see pipes and parts. Hopefully on the cover, inside or out, or somewhere inside the furnace will be instructions.
If not, find a knob that has 'pilot', 'off' and 'run' or something like that. It will probably be in 'run'.
Usually, you have to push the knob down and turn it to get it to the 'pilot' spot. When you do, have something to lite the pilot, which will be inside the furnace more, near the burner. The burner looks like a gas stove or oven burner. The pilot place will be at the end of a small tube.
With the button held down, wave something burning around the burner area. especially at what may be the pilot. The pilot doesn't put out much gas, so don't worry about things blowing up.
Once the pilot has lit, hold the button down for a while, at least a minute. Then you should be able to release the button and the pilot should stay on. If it doesn't, you need a serviceman to come. Let the landlord know the pilot would not stay lit.
If the pilot stays lit, move the knob to 'run' or such, and the furnace should lite, if the thermostat is set higher than room temp. If it has been off, and the room is cool, it should lite.
If the furnace doesn't come on, let the landlord know.
Most landlords have service people for this, it was my job for a long time. Lighting pilots was a common chore for me. If you can, have the landlord send one out to show you how to do it.
As you see, it's not all tough, but it's not all easy, either.

Amana oven pilot light


If you have a standing pilot and it is not on, you should be smelling gas in the house.
Try lighting it with a BBq lighter directly.
On some stoves, you will have to press a button and hold that button for some time ..over a minute..while you have the light to the middle of the pilot.
Do not proceed to light the pilot until there is no more smell of gas in the oven.

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

Won't get hot, smells like gas


Most of these new fangled gas stove feature a silicone carbide ignitor to light the oven. Older stoves used a standing pilot light. As silicone carbide ignitor age a little they tend to get weak and fail to open the gas safety vave sufficiently enough for ignition. Take a look

I smell gas and my burners wont light - is there a pilot light in these ranges?


The best way to find out if if your stove has a pilot light, is to lift the top panel of the range . The pilot will usually be located between the burners. Typically you will have two pilots. One for the left and one for the right. The pilot light will ignite with a match without having to turn the burner knobs to the "on" position. Good luck

OVEN PILOT WENT OUT


hopefully the gas smell isn't too strong and posing a hazard to you. If it is, reach behind the range and turn the valve until it is across the gas line and not parallel to it. You should be able to raise the top of the range from the front and see all the workings underneath. There you will find the pilot light.
