I went to HomeDepot and bought a BBQ electric lighter kit. Did whatever I had to do to make it work. What a pleasure it is to just push the button to light the oven. Sorry now I didn't buy a 4-way to also light the burners.

I bought a four way battery powered from ignitor from Amazon for less than $20. Had to run a high temp wire and used an old spark plug from an old grill to ignite the oven. What a difference that that hammering piezo piece of xxx. You will likely have to drill new holes for this also.

MC9 and palmetto rogue, you must have different ovens than I do. Mine and others I have read on this thread have ovens which have to have heat applied for a while for the pilot to light, and the burner won't light unless the pilot is lite and providing heat. ??? It's all interlocked.

So, have you tried any of the suggestions given to you, to see if it solves your issue?

That may be. But, usually the pilot lights immediately. There might be a slight pause before the burner itself comes on. I also swiped the sparker from an old grill.

Evereddie, I still must depress the knob to provide gas for the pilot, then hold for a moment until the thermocouple is heated. The advantage is I am not on my knees with a flashlight trying to find the pilot assembly.

Are you talking about a retrofit to the suburban model the OP is trying to get an answer to? Does the piezo igniter light the main burner directly, or is yous a different stove than what the OP is trying to fix. The OP has a thermocouple problem , which might be a simple fix.

Here is a mod I've been contemplating:

Sorry to the original poster for slightly hi-jacking the thread. It does apply a little I guess.
