You do have propane and the stove is working, correct?

What isn't working? You can't get the pilot light to stay lit? The oven won't start once you have the pilot light lit? Is this the first time youv'e tried to use the oven this year or first time ever?

Yes, to all of the above! I HAVE never used it . Can't even get Pilot light lite. Stove works. Hold and turn Pilot light switch right?

No. You hold the oven control in and light it manually with a flame. There is no sparker in the oven, it is an explosion hazard.

You hold the oven control in and light the pilot manually and CONTINUE to hold the control knob in. There is a thermocouple (temperature sensor) that must get hot enough from the pilot light to allow the pilot light to stay lit and gas to flow to the oven when you release the control knob.

Recently, after lighting the pilot, we have had to hold our control knob in as long as a full minute (60 seconds). It used to take ~30 seconds.

In addition to the above advice, I've found that I have to light the burner on the stove and let it burn for a little bit before the oven will light. It gets air pockets out of the lines.
