Oven not lighting

Need help: Have 2009 32 BHDS Jayflight G2 I bought new. Had it out 2 weeks in July - All was OK. Got carpenter ants so bombed trailer 3 times. Just took trailer out again and tried using oven and it won't light. Checked everything: propane tanks both full with one open, have purged the lines of all air, stove top burners all work just fine, pilot in oven will not light nor will oven burner light even with open flame lighter. The appliance obviously is getting gas but why won't oven burner light?

Only thing I can think of now is the oven dial on front of oven may be not working and not opening the gas line to the oven burner. How can I check that?

Any other ideas or possible problems?

Thanks. Tony

Try using a little toothbrush-type wire brush and scrub off the pilot light tube end. Maybe it's plugged up with carbon, or pizza goo, or bug bomb residue. Even though it's possible, I wouldn't think your oven valve/pilot valve dial would be bad. Pretty simple and dependable mechanisms.

Thanks. It is a simple system which is why when everything checks out, which it does except for the oven temp control dial which I don't have a manometer to check for gas pressure, and the oven pilot still does not light, I don't know what else to do but take the gas line to the pilot totally off to check and clean.
