Can you elaborate a bit on what you mean by a BBQ lighter and "4-way"?

Thanks

Can you provide a link to an example?

Thank you everyone, love this forum. I think bleeding the line by lighting the top burners is the key I missed. I'll try again this weekend.

I don't have a link but many people use a pizza stone. I use an unglazed inexpensive (cheap) tile that I get at lowes, home depot etc. It has mass and acts as a heat sink helping to maintain a more even oven temp. I got this tip on this forum. You may be able to do a search and find more about it.

He's referring to a fixed piezo-igniter some stoves and barbeques are fitted with a single push button or rotary igniter with leads to all burners in the device. Georgetown stoves have that feature, just not the oven, only the burners.

I don't know about everyone else, but I always have a lot of trouble with those long nose lighters. I probably have a half dozen at the S&B and they don't work worth a flip. You can see butane in the little window, yet they won't light or are difficult to light or won't stay lit. That's why I thought the candle idea might be a good one. I don't believe the little votive candles would drip. I wonder why they don't make a spark igniter like they do for the top burners.

The lighter I installed has a battery. I put it next to the Piezo lighter for the burners. I bent up some metal to make up a holder for the ignitor to be in the correct place to light the oven pilot when we press the button. You have to kinda dismantle the stove to run the wire to the oven. It didn't take to long and works every time, unlike the piezo for the upper burners. They make the lighters with as many wires as you want to light each burner. In hindsight, I should have replaced the original piezo and used that hole.

Go to Home Debit (depot!) and search "grill ignitor" or see this-
Brinkmann Universal Electronic Ignitor Kit-812-7220-S at The Home Depot

Slightly off topic but we used/use a pizza stone in the oven trying to
keep the biscuits from burning on the bottom.
As suggested here by someone we got one of those "air layer" cookie
sheets. That made a big difference. Now we can bake biscuits and not
burn the bottoms.
Happy Trails!
