Most commercial ovens have a manually lit pilot. There will be a button somewhere on the range that you will need to push in so gas will come out of the pilot assembly. While holding this button you will the light the pilot and will need to hold the button in for about a minute or two until the pilot stays on after you release the button. Look around the bottom panel,top panel or side panels(you may need to remove one) to find the button. they are usually red and may not look like a button. If you find the button and the pilot does not stay lit then the thermocouple might be bad. If you push the button and do not get any gas coming out of the pilot then there might be debris in the pilot assembly causing the gas not to come out. In that case you could try and tap the assembly or blow with compressed air to clear it. But in most cases you will need to remove the pilot assembly and use a really fine wire(like a metal tie-strap minus the coating) to clear the pilot orfice.

Oven pilot will not stay lit


Strange to hear about a pilot-flame. Is it an old oven? Commercial unit? Look for a small valve at the end of the pilot gas-line and see if it is shut off. If it's on, okay. But, is gas getting there being blocked elsewhere? There may be a flame safety-switch, a sensor by the pilot, or some other thing that has a release button for lighting the pilot. You hold it in until the sensor heats up, and then it will stay lit. After that, there may be a re-set button to get gas to the main burner element. Basically, you have to trace lines back until you find the hindrance. CAUTION:With all gas appliances, you have severe danger of causing an explosion, and untimely death, or injury, so if you have any doubts, get a qualified guy on it! (It takes a while to grow a beard back, too.)

I have a garland oven model st286 it wont light even though there is gas getting to it and the spark is working. It lights if you light it manually


Instructions
  1. Access the burners inside your oven by removing the access panel in the front of the oven or by opening the broiling drawer, depending on your particular model.
  2. Determine if the pilot itself is lit, since some ovens have a small flame on the pilot at all times that then grows and extends to the burner when the oven is turned on. The lack of a pilot flame indicates the oven thermostat is malfunctioning or there is a problem with the gas hose. Check the pilot itself to see if it is clogged with debris or grease that could be preventing the flame from staying lit.
  3. Determine if the pilot flame will grow if it is lit by turning on the thermostat. If the pilot flame doesn't extend, the thermostat itself likely needs replacement. If the flame is extending but the gas valve is not opening, the safety valve could be dirty or defective. The flame should be blue in color. A yellow flame indicates the pilot is dirty and is not burning hot enough to get the main burner to ignite.
  4. Light the burner on the top of the oven with a match if the igniter doesn't appear to be effective. If it lights manually but will not light automatically, the igniter is likely faulty. Do not do this if there is a heavy smell of gas in the kitchen, since there could be a risk of a fire. In that circumstance, turn the oven off, ventilate the room and call a technician.
  5. Listen for any sounds of gas hissing or a clicking sound indicating the oven is trying to turn on. If there is no response from the oven at all, the gas may not be functioning properly and will need to be examined by a technician for safety purposes

WERE IS THE PILOT AND HOW DO I LIGHT IT?


Most modern ovens today, do NOT have pilots--
They have an ignitor that glows bright , and then the gas valve opens, and the burner lights.

Have you noticed when the Broiler burner lights, if you get a bright light from its ignitor?

You should see the same for the main oven burner, when you start it.

If not-- you need a new ignitor. Do you have any warranty with your oven?-- How old is it?

When you check these out, let us know, and we;ll help you to the next step

When Oven turns off so does oven pilot


Hi there, it is possible of the pilot being too close, but usually does not have that effect, unless the pilot is too small. But if you replaced the pilot, it should be clean, so next I would look at the gas pressure, if this is too low, the flame won't have proper burning speed, and strength, and could get drawn out. The control valve may be of the type that has a regulator built in, you may need someone skilled at gas pressure measuring, to do this, your gas supplier, appliance professional, plumber, should be able to do this.

Let us know, and thank you.

Pilot light


Maybe. Sometimes these units have small throttle valves near the pilot. If it adjusts...make sure it is about 1/2 inch long....you don't want it blowing out.

Lighting a pilot light in a 30 year old roper gas range


Lift the top lid and look for a cylinder or something similar with tubing going into it there should be a button of some sort on the side. if you are lucky the button will have a red cap on it. press the button in and light the pilot inside the oven. hold the button for a minute or so until the pilot stays on. kind of like lighting a water heater.
