You're not alone these ovens are PITA to light.....it just takes some time.

I guess that's why I only use mine a couple of times a year !!

I've been interested in doing the mod as well for the 3 burners and oven. I read a link over on rv.net on how to convert using a charbroil system. If anyone is interested:

Glad I am not alone! I would rather cook bisquits in the dutch Oven then try to get my gas oven to start. Maybe my problem may have been I was not pushing the knob in but I have held a lighter there for the better part of 2 minutes and I did "bleed" the system.

Once you see where the pilot flame is its pretty easy to light, if working correctly. Use a flashlight to get a good look. The flame will be at the end of the tube (gas line). Pass your flame back and forth under the area. Pilot flame can be tiny.

Push in knob on pilot setting. After 3-5 seconds put flame under pilot area for 5-10 seconds. Leave knob depressed for another 5 seconds. Move range knob to desired heat setting. Done. Been doing it this way for years.

Op was asking where to light it. Not how. Your process is what I use too. Works every time.

Opening the oven door and lighting the lighter BEFORE turning on the gas will prevent any gas from accumulating in the oven, which usually results in one of those "hard lessons."

lbrjet - I started doing the same after I got a flashlight and found the pilot light. With the flashlight I was able to see that I was off the mark of where I thought the pilot light was.

KyDan - the suggestion of using a longer lighter makes lots of sense. Every once in a while I end turning off the oven too early. Trying to light the pilot light when the oven is hot can be painful.
