Oven Pilot Light

Oven Pilot Light

The oven pilot light ignites gas by burning a small flame continuously inside the oven. This flame serves as the heat source for the oven and is vital for its proper operation. Typically, the gas oven light is manually activated by turning a valve and igniting the flame with a lighter, usually located in close proximity to the gas burner at the oven's base.

If the gas oven pilot light extinguishes, the oven will not operate correctly and won't generate heat. In such instances, relighting the pilot light becomes necessary to restore the oven's functionality. To do this, one should turn off the gas supply to the oven, identify the pilot light's location, and then adjust the valve to permit gas flow to the pilot light. Once the pilot light is lit and burning steadily, the gas supply should be reconnected once the flame is reignited with a lighter. Whenever relighting the oven pilot light, make sure you follow the manufacturer's instructions and handle gas with care.
