The pilot adjustment screw is located on the back side of the oven temperature thermostat. Lift the cook top to access it. Use a flat screwdriver to adjust... counter clockwise= bigger flame.

SOURCE: gas oven dosnt work

the pilot light is there for 2 purposes. number 1 to light the burner and number 2 to heat up the thermocouple, thermocouple is a wire that the flame from pilot suppose to surround by fire. if the pilot is to low it will not reach the thermocouple. you can take the gas line that supplies gas to the pilot and clean it with a safety pin or a small needle. you can test the thermocouple by heating it up with a blow torch on low heat, get it red hot and then turned on the oven. if the oven works clean the pilot, if the oven do not work, replace the thermocouple if separate from safety valve. if thermocouple is part of it replace the safety valve.

SOURCE: I have an older model brown stove and cannot light the oven pilot

The oven pilot is accessible through the broiler door, (you're pretty much laying on the floor to light it) or through the oven bu removing the oven bottom panel. To remove the oven bottom, place fingers in holes near the door, and apply pressure to slide the bottom toward the rear, and lift when the front (by your fingers) comes free. Remove completely and set aside. You should now see a flame spreader (V-shaped metal pan) retained by one or two winged screws. Removing the screws allows removal of the spreader. This exposes the burner, complete with pilot. There is two tubing lines to the pilot assembly, one about 1/4 inch dia. and one much smaller. the one at the end of the 1/4 inch tube is the pilot. The piece at the end of the really thin tube is the thermocouple. You have to heat the thermocouple to get the gas to come on to the pilot. A match just won't do it as you need to apply a flame to the thermocouple for about 30 seconds or so. Heat the thermocouple until the pilot will self-sustain. When the pilot stays on on it's own, put it all back together. If you elect to just go through the broiler, again heat the thermocouple until the pilot will self-sustian.

SOURCE: 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.

What are BTUs for vintage propane oven/cooktop?


This is the only thing I can find on that brand. I would have thought your propane supplier could have given you the information?

Or you could Google propane stoves and pick one that is similar. I won't make that much difference. Like this site

I need to know how to light the oven? Does it have a pilot light like the stove top


most stoves do not have pilot lights but work from a pizo ignition system
when you turn on the gas knob ,the first action is to energize the pizo and that continually sparks to ignite the gas at the hob
the same is with the oven
ovens should be lit with the oven door open and once lit then the door can be closed

Old wedgewood oven in home...very low pilot light in oven...how do I adjust it?


The oven pilot is usually located at the back of the oven; turn a screw on the pilot ignition unit to adjust the pilot flame height.

here is a link, pretty much all older ranges operate the same.

Our Wedgewood stove suddenly started acting up. We have to use the Reset button often to get any oven lighting at all. The pilots are fine. The broiler (separate compartment) is fine. But the oven lights...


It sounds like the problem is either the safety valve (the reset button) or the oven thermostat (the assembly behind the oven temperature knob). Both parts can be rebuilt (if they are original parts) and replacement parts are still made for 1940's and 50's Wedgewoods.

Propane not getting to oven... stove top works fine..


The pilot light must be lit and stay lit before you will have any propane coming into the oven. This is a safety feature.

Delay in oven burner to light after pilot is lit.


Usually delayed lighting on a standing pilot system is caused by a gas pathway that is dirty from spilled food or grease. If you can remove the burner assembly and clean it that will correct the problem. If there is a removable plate above it then you can remove that and get access instead of removing it. Pilot ignitions work by creating a column of gas between the pilot and the burner that is established when the burner is turned on kind of like a fuse. A small tube my be used to establish the column of gas between burner and pilot and it may get blocked with food that overflows. Sometimes the pilot is just located right next to the burner and may get partially blocked or the orifice in the burner next to the pilot may be blocked. Cleaning all this helps. Be very careful with gas. Work in a well ventilated area. Turn on gas very briefly to run an ignition test. Turn off the gas and vent it off if it fails to light in about 5 seconds. Unburned propane drops to the floor and collects. Natural gas rises. Be aware of this when you ventilate.

Oven pilot light won't light


Part of the problem was my own ignorance about this particular Kenmore gas oven. It doesn't even have a pilot light. Instead, there is an electric heating element close to the burner which gets so hot that it ignites the gas. It seems that the heating element also doubles as a temperature sensor, so that it opens the gas valve only when the heating element is hot enough to ignite the gas. This heating element, called the "ignitor", no longer gets hot in my oven even though there is 120VAC applied to it when the oven knob is turned on. Therefore, the ignitor is defective. I ordered a new one on-line from "Appliance Parts of America" for $31.50 plus shipping, and this should fix the problem. If it does NOT, I'll add to this post.

Often times you will have problems with the gas thermostat and not necessarily with the safety valve. Once you have lit the pilot light, turn the oven knob to any temperature. The pilot light should get bigger in size of flame. If not, the thermostat that controls the oven must be replaced. If the pilot light does get bigger, but the stove does not ignite, it is the safety valve.
