Although pilot lights are lit, only one burner works the other 3 do not??? also do not see pilot light for oven??? does it even have one or light by match only??


Hello Linda

All burners have a small hole in the flame spreader which directs a jet of gas to the pilot lights when you turn the burner knob. These get clogged by food residues over time.

Remove all the burners and give them a good soak in hot soapy water. Sometimes you need oven spray first.

All modern ovens have a pilot light. There will be a red button which is usually hidden below the front removable panel or just inside a warming drawer at the top. You press and hold the red button and then light the pilot inside the oven. You continue holding the button for the flame to heat up a gadget called a thermocouple. This is a valve that only allows gas to the main burner if the pilot light is alight.

Take a look at the videos in the link.

Just started renting house that has the Maytag Performa Electric Range and I noticed last night that the "on indicator" light is on (and still on tis morning); however, none of the burners nor the sto


The pilot indicator is powered by a contact in the thermostat or control board. It is usually not powering the oven but it could be allowing 120 volts to the element this would make the oven very warm. If you unplug the stove for a while and then plug it back in and the oven gets warm again I would have it checked. It may be drawing power.

Old hotpoint gas stove. burners and broiler work oven does not. Could it be the ignitor and how does one fix it?


Usually ranges have a pilot at the bottom. Take the bottom panel off and there should be a button that says 'pilot' hold the button down for a few seconds to let the air purge out. Then while still holding the button down, light the pilot with a match or a lighter of some sort. Continue holding the button down for a few more seconds until the thermocouple has warmed up. (You'll know the thermocouple has warmed up if you can release the pilot button and the pilot stays lit)

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.

60" double oven gas Garland stove


We use a Garland from the 1960's and pilot lights ARE scary and should make you nervous. This is why they are no longer allowed in new gas ranges. I mounted an inline gas shut off to the stove where the gas enters (on mine this is right in front on the left side). It turns on and off like a burner and when we are done cooking we simply shut off the gas there. To light the burners or the stove I use one of those long reach lighters. I go to bed knowing that NO gas is coming in.
We love the stove, it makes cooking more fun.
Good Luck!
