Hello Jim. Welcome to the Gas Appliances topic.

Oven pilot won't stay it?

I suspect you mean when you release a push in button?

Holding it repressed to get pilot gas out of pilot assembly? You then light the pilot flame and hold a reset button repressed for about 45-60 seconds, then release the button and the pilot flame goes out?

I'm confused. Kindly explain in more specific details pertaining to the oven, the pilot and procedure used to light the pilot, so I can better understand the problem and help you.

Hello: Jim

2 possible causes.

#1
Plugged and or restricted pilot assembly.

Solution:
Blow out an existing pilot and allow assembly to cool. If there is no pilot and the assembly is already cool, use a can of compressed air used to clean a computer keyboard and blow out all the dust in the entire pilot assembly. Retry lighting the pilot. Should be better and flame larger.

#2
Plugged and or restricted pilot assembly.

Solution:
Remove entire pilot assembly. Clean all parts and blow out the pilot orifice and all air inlet holes. Reassemble pilot assembly and reconnect it exactly as it currently is installed. Re test. All should be ok. Pilot flame large enough to heat safety element and pilot will remain on.
