Where is my oven pilot light?
posted by anonpeon to Home & Garden (8 answers total)
Have a gas oven/stove. Tried to use the oven today, but it wouldn't come on and after a while there was the smell of gas. So I figured the oven pilot light was out, especially since it's really windy today.
However, when I went to light it, there was no device that would hold a pilot light, not in the oven or underneath. I took a match and passed it front of what I thought might be the pilot (a pipe with an opening in it), but nothing happened.
However the stove burners work fine. What gives?
More info: Previously when lighting the oven, there a barely heard rush of gas and then the sound of fire lighting. Now there's nothing. It's a Kenmore stove, can't find a model number on the damn thing, but it's a modern one, with electronic readout for temperatures.
