Oven won't light

Out on the 1st trip of 2014 and my oven won't light. Stove works, HW tank lit, fridge working on LP. I'm sure a spider is clogging the line. How can I clean it out ? Need to make biscuits in 2days !

Did you try to light the pilot with one of those long lighters? If the pilot will light off another flame source most likely the spark ignitor for the oven is bad.

Hey thanks, but I believe I must have an occlusion somewhere because the pilot and the actual oven burner are NOT getting LP. I need to take it apart and blow compressed air thru it.

OK here goes, not sure what your doing or not doing so step by step here we go.
1. Gas is on, turn oven to start or Pilot.
2. Press down on the knob.
3. With a long lighter hold a flame at the end of the pilot flame tube. If it seems to take a min. You can see (with a flash light) the metal rod that is also a heat sensor for the gas shut off. Hold the lighter on the metal rod for a min, until you see it glow then turn the stove on regular ( pick a temp) then the burner should light. If you have spiders in the line the heat from the burner will run the out and they will die.
Try this and see how it goes.

Once you set to pilot, do you push on knob for one minute and try to light pilot inside oven?

The burner won't receive any gas until the little heat sensor is hot. Its a safety gas shut off sensor.
