Question about Ovens
I'm trying to get hold of a manual for my Samet undercounter oven. I cannot a model number anywhere. The measurements of the oven inside are: 43.5cm x 32cm. I am also trying to get a rack and pan for the oven, as it only came with one. I am based in Centurion, South Africa.

SOURCE: old oven, probably from early
Hello, welcome to FixYa. Based on your post I understand you have a problem with a stove/range however without a make & model number I can't speak specifically to your problem without generalizing. Having said that, it is far too old to have an ignitor....at least of the electronic type, most certainly a "standing pilot" (presuming it is as old as you suspect...early 70's). The good news, one typically only requires a flame source to re-light it. (likely the reason you smell gas) Now the generalizing, there should be a broil drawer below the oven door (similar to a utility/pots & pans drawer, without the storage space) if you open and slide it out the burner will be visible at the back...you may need a flashlight. At the very back of the burner tube will be the thermocouple with a small sensing bulb, this is where you'll want to hold the flame to re-ignite the pilot. If it fails to ignite, there may be a position on the oven control that says "lite" or "pilot". If so turn it to that position to ignite the pilot...if not, ultimately you may have a failed thermocouple. Let me know how you manage or if you have any questions going forward. Please let keep me posted in any event. Good luck and thank you for choosing FixYa. Regards, Macmarkus :)
