Oven in new Wildcat won't light for first time

The burners on the stove light just fine. The spark dial makes a visible spark, but no ignition when oven gas is turned on and no smell of gas. Any ideas?

I think that almost all the suburban ovens have a pilot setup and you turn the knob to pilot and push in while lighting once the pilot is lit then the oven will come on. My oven I have to get on my knees to light the pilot so I don't know if they have a Ignitor on the newer units.

You're seeing your spark dial spark but that's on top for your burners right? Or are you saying you have a separate spark dial for the oven....ours is like onetonford stated, we have to manually light the pilot light.

No smell of gas is not a good sign. Could be almost anything. Is it under warranty?

It has to be lit with a match. Or a fire starter. The ignition spark is only for the burners. First stand on your head so you can see. Then light . We just bough a 272RL and it is match light. Good luck. Have fun.
