My `70's Tappan wall unit is not igniting. The pilot is lit, but when the knob is turned, nothing lights, even turning the knob to broil.

Probably the safety valve is stuck closed or the bi-metal inside has died. You could try cleaning the probe on the pilot assembly and repositioning it so more flame can hit or clean the buildup around the pilot to make it a little hotter. When replacing the safety valve it will not be preset. Sit it beside the old one and get the orifice height the same and you will be in the ballpark of where you want that flame. More Here

Lighting my pilot

If this is old enough to have an actual gas pilot it will have a thing called a thermocouple. The pilot flame burns around this thermocouple to keep it hot. The thermocouple must be hot from being in the burning gas or it will turn the gas off to the pilot. Yeah, it's kind of a viscious circle isn't it? This is where a propane torch comes in handy, but you might do this with one of those butane matches with the long neck. Apply a flame to the thermocouple for 30 seconds or so. When the thermocouple gets hot enough the pilot will self-sustain. Be sure it is the thermocouple it is you are heating up. It is at the end of a rather thin, what looks like a wire but is actually a wire inside of a thin tube. (still looks like a wire). Might be described as looking like a hot dog on a stick in miniature form. the hot dog part being about 1/8 inch by 1 inch. and is in a bracket.
