How to light a pilot

Please refer to the silver rating plate or owner ’s manual for this procedure. It is helpful to familiarize yourself with the location of the controls and pilot assembly before attempting to light your stove. Locate the on-pilot-off knob and notice a small white arrow positioned at 3 o’clock on the base (some stoves have the valve mounted upside down which results in the white arrow being at 9 o’clock). Locate the Piezo igniter button (black or red button that may have a spark painted on the end) and position your field of vision so you can look through the glass at the pilot assembly while lighting. *Note: some gas stoves and fireplaces have electonic spark modules that will start sparking when the on-off-pilot knob is depressed which eliminates the need to repeated push on a piezo button. When you are sure there is gas pressure to the stove, rotate the on-pilot-off knob so the word pilot is aligned with the white arrow at 3 o’clock(or 9 o’clock). Push in and hold. While looking at the pilot assembly, push the Piezo igniter button once per second until a blue flame appears. Keep holding the on-pilot-off knob for 10 to 30 seconds (when you release the knob, the pilot flame should stay lit.) Rotate the on-pilot-off knob counter-clockwise one-quarter turn. Your stove is now ready for operation!
