pilot light in oven

How do I find where to relight my pilot in my gas oven? I have lit it before on the stove top, but this is the first time it is out inside the oven. It is a White-Westinghouse, about 10 years old. The broiler is underneath, so my mother and father-in-law think the pilot would be down there, but I feel rather nervous just sticking a lit match in the area! Please advise!

Hi: Linda B.

Open the broiler door. Look up at the burner tube. Near the back left side and next to the burner is the pilot assembly. The pilot flame will be right at the end of the assembly. You can put the match up near the assembly and light the pilot.

If the oven thermostat is OFF, the only gas you'll smell is that of the pilot. With an oven only ten years old, it may not have a pilot light. It may have an electric glow coil ignition system.
