Major Appliances/admiral gas oven


We have an issue with the pilot light for the oven won't light.  The burners work fine with gas on top.  We have used the long matches to try to light it but nothing is working.  The model number is A3177YRW and it is an old gas oven.  Please help really need an oven with 4 kids!

If you feel capable, first thing I would do is gain access to the pilot assembly, take it apart and clean it.  Over the  years a build up of burnt gas builds up and blocks the pilot orifice.  Try this and let me know what you find.

Waiting to hear from you,
Eric and Ann Campion
