I have the same range. It does not have a pilot. It uses an electronic ignitor which generates an electrical spark that lights the burner. The ignitor is located at the back of the burner and should make a popping noise and the spark will be visible to the eye. If none of your burners are working have a professional take a look. This is a potentially explosive device and the gas line should not be tampered with unless you are experienced.

How do I light a pilot in a gas oven


On a pilot type system you typical hold an ignition source (lighter) to the pilot while holding down the thermostat (push the oven temp knob in) and hold for approx 20 seconds make sure you have the lighter directly on the pilot assemble in oven while you are doing this once it's lite continue to hold for the 20 seconds if you are not sure you are doing it right or if you smell gas vent your house and seek a knowledgable tech

I want to light the pilot but do not know how what is the red button for and do you turn on the gas to light pilot?


nope - don't turn on gas at the Range's front control panel to light the pilot lite.
but you do need to turn on the gas to the kitchen range at the plumbers black pipe valve to the Range.

To light the pilot light:
(1) depress the red button (that feeds the gas to the pilot light orifice)
(2) using lighter/match/lit rolled-up newspaper, etc, light the tiny amount of gas coming from orifice
(3) continue to hold dow red button for 1 or 1.5 minutes (this allows heat to bend the bi-metal contact)
(4) after 1-1.5 minutes with a lit pilot light, release the red button - the pilot should remain lit
(5) you're done lighting the pilot lite - turn on the oven (or broiler).

The igniter in the oven doesnt work. is it possible to ligt it up manually? and where do i put the match?


The pilot light should be located in the same area where the ignitor ends in the oven.

MOst ovens today do not have a pilot that is lit all the time.

So you may want to have the ignitor replaced.

How do i adjust oven pilot light on vulcan range


hi, there is an orfice for the oven located on the gas valve. If you are using LP gas, the orfice should be turn down all the way (counter clockwise). If you are using natural gas, the orfice should be turned out about 2-1/2 turns. Was this oven set up to be used with one gas and noe is being used with another? If so, you will need to do more then adjust orfices. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Hi, we have a dcs 366 gas range. the pilot light for the oven went out and we can't seem to locate the pilot to re-light. the manual doesn't really go into detail for the oven...only the stove top. is this...


You don't give the model number of your DCS range, but it probably doesn't have a pilot light.
More likely it uses and electronic igniter. Internet search on "gas oven ignitor". I think this
might help you with your problem.

GE GAS RANGE OVEN PROBLEM


two options.first does the pilot flame look good (a nice blue flame)?if so you will see a metal probe next to the pilot,use some sandpaper and clean that probe up.if that solves your problem so be it.second if the first thing doesnt work its probably the ignitor board not sensing the flame.the way to definitly tell the one or the other use a small torch and heat up the probe like i said and turn the oven on.if the main burner comes on then you know its the probe which is called a thermocouple and is cheap.hope this helps.
