Yes. Just push in pilot and hold flame under pilot until it lights. Could take a while and flame is very small in mine. Hold pilot control in for at least 30 secs before releasing.

Started camoing at Nolin 35 years ago with a TT, then bought a lot down there on the lake and built a camp and sold the TT. Great lake!. Hope you get all the small issues worked out. We have a new Coachmen TT and love it. Sold the place at the lake and started camping again. Towing it to Henderson Beach State park campground in Fl. this weekend, our first long trip. 610 miles. We are a little nervous abt. the long haul but we have roadside assistance. Hope you get it all straightened out.

Ok, from what the RV guys told me, if I can light the burners up top on the stove then there is no air in the gas line. Is that true? I'm sure some air could be in the oven line itself while the rest don't anymore?

If I need to replace the thermocoupler, how big of a job is that? Where is it? I have a Magic Chef stove/oven but don't have the model number handy as it's in storage.

The pilot light gets gas from the off-pilot-on oven switch when held in. You light the pilot and after 20-30 seconds while still holding in the oven switch, the thermocouple produces a slight voltage from the heat of the pilot and holds a coil built into the gas valve to continue the pilot gas. If the thermocouple does not stay hot the valve shuts off the pilot.

It's not the thermocouple. Pushing in on the knob bypasses that.

Ok, what would it be? The valve? Clogged line somewhere?

Can you see the pilot light orifice? When you hold the knob in and bring a lit match, lighter, or taper, in close proximity, does the pilot try to light?
