Oven will not light

I bled the propane lines in our suburban over and all three top burners light with the spark igniter on the stover however the oven will not light with the igniter or a stick lighter. I turn the oven control to pilot and push in on the control for 5 seconds and I get absolutely no gas coming into to over burner assembly.

Any thought?

Thanks a million

Bob

Do not know if the newer ones are different but our igniter only lights the burners............ Sometimes you must hold in on the knob for much more than 5 seconds to get the pilot to light (with a stick lighter) then many more to get it to stay on........ see what other answers you get..................

You have to light the pilot first. Turn the oven to pilot and push in the knob while you hold a lighter ofer the pilot light nozzle below the oven burner. Once the pilot light is lit, turn the oven knob to the desired position and it should light.

Get the eyes on the stove going for about a minute and after that push and hold the pilot knob in for at least 20 seconds and use a long handled lighter a few times under the oven burner tube near the back. After it lights, hold the knob in for a few seconds more and slowly let the knob back out. Then turn the temp to the desired setting.

I find the pilot almost impossible to light. I hold the knob, the missus lights the pilot.

Our last camper, the oven had to be held about 5 minutes (not kidding) to get gas through the line enough to light..........requires a lighter.......the igniter won't light ovens.

They have had problems with the Suburban ovens lighting and staying lit. I did. The dealer replaced the pilot valve assembly and everything is ok. Some claim they have had success readjusting the thermocouple

Like others indicated, you have to light the pilot, then it ignites the oven burner as needed for temperature settings. To prevent gas leaking when the pilot is not lit, there is a thermocouple that allows the pilot gas to flow only when it us warm from the pilot light being on. You have to hold the lighter on the pilot until it gets warm enough to allow gas flow and then it's will light and stay on.

Just experienced that this morning with 1st time use of an Atwood oven. Never had this problem before, ever. The three top burners light immediately but after I get the pilot lit, even after 3-4 minutes, when I set the oven temp the pilot appears to blow out.

Our former Rockwood Signature Ultra light had a suburban stove/ oven. I could not get it to stay lit. Our former dealership thought it was user error, I have been using and lighting gas stoves for decades. At our third time in for service, I was told to use a BLOW TORCH to light it! After a bit of "discussion" they replaced the gas valve as I had requested the first two times it was there. Guess what? Pilot lit easy with just one match after that. And we found a new dealership for service!

That would be a very good reason!

reply to oven lighting

I have a coachmen 322rlds, 2016 and had the same problem. There is a clip
missing behind the oven operating knob and was replaced by dealer under warranty.
Hope this helps.
