To relight a gas oven pilot, turn off each appliance control, and enable gas to disperse while the oven doors are open. Light a match, bring it close to the edge of the burner assembly’s pilot, and check if the burner lights within two minutes. If it doesn’t, use a screwdriver to turn the pilot adjustment screw slowly until the pilot produces a blue flame.

To clean a gas oven burner, remove the oven bottom after turning off all controls. Remove the baffle located below the oven bottom. Next, observe the burner while the oven is turned on. Several flame ports are likely blocked if there is no continuous flame along the burner’s length. In this case, switch off the oven, allow the burner to cool, and use a sewing needle to clear all flame ports.

To change a defective gas oven spark igniter, use a screwdriver to unfasten the igniter from the mounting bracket, unscrew the ignition control module’s cover, and detach the module. Install the new spark igniter carefully, and test if it works.
