Turn the black knob on the top to pilot and press that black knob down.
This will start releasing the propane. After a few seconds while still pushing down light the pilot light inside the hole in lower right.
Remember you are still holding down the black knob until the pilot light stays on by itself.
The flame should increase inside that chamber in the lower right where the pilot light is. Do not look directly into the hole as the flame may come out 1st when it is lit.
This may take 2 people to get it started the first time.
The red button is the reset button in case it over heated.
Hope this helps a little
