Clarification Requested

Hello shaneclower and Welcome to the Do It Yourself Web Site and my Gas Appliances topic.

If the appliance is "Brand New" it will not have pilots that burn constantly. It will have some variety of electronic sparking and or glowing hot surface ignition.

Kindly clarify what is meant by brand new. As in a recently purchased appliance or a new appliance to you? Important to know so an accurate determination can be made as to the exact problem and correct solution to that problem can be provided.

Retail parts dealers and appliances parts stores can also help determine what the possible problem may be based upon that specific brand and model. Bring the make, model and serial numbers. Dealers and appliances parts stores are listed in the phone book.

Additional Suggestions:
Read the manufacturers online web site for product information, problem possibilities, causes, solving methods, part locations, disassembly, reassembly methods, repair procedures, pictorials, schematics, repair and or owners manuals which may be available online.

Actually this oven may have a pilot. IF the range was NOT equipped with electric. Meaning no power cord to even feed an oven light than it will have standing pilots. Have seen lots of apts that buy these low end ranges.
