If this is old enough to have an actual gas pilot it will have a thing called a thermocouple. The pilot flame burns around this thermocouple to keep it hot. The thermocouple must be hot from being in the burning gas or it will turn the gas off to the pilot. Yeah, it's kind of a viscious circle isn't it? This is where a propane torch comes in handy, but you might do this with one of those butane matches with the long neck. Apply a flame to the thermocouple for 30 seconds or so. When the thermocouple gets hot enough the pilot will self-sustain. Be sure it is the thermocouple it is you are heating up. It is at the end of a rather thin, what looks like a wire but is actually a wire inside of a thin tube. (still looks like a wire). Might be described as looking like a hot dog on a stick in miniature form. the hot dog part being about 1/8 inch by 1 inch. and is in a bracket.

You will need to look and see if the igniter is glowing a bright red. If it is weak, the oven will not light. Here is the igniter if you need to order it.

Also check and make sure your getting 3.2-3.6 volts AC to the valve.

OVEN PILOT WENT OUT


hopefully the gas smell isn't too strong and posing a hazard to you. If it is, reach behind the range and turn the valve until it is across the gas line and not parallel to it. You should be able to raise the top of the range from the front and see all the workings underneath. There you will find the pilot light.

Where is the pilot light for the oven?


Look inside the oven where the burners come into the oven. Right at that point you should find the pilot light. Here is where you light the pilot.If you smell a lot of gas when you open the door, turn off the gas altogether and let it dissipate. Then turn ot on and then you can light it.

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.
