Does the pilot lite? Usually you need to lite the pilot and then after a few seconds turn it to the temp you want. If it hasn't been used in a while you may have air in that line and it takes awhile to bleed off with the small line feeding the pilot.

Have you used the oven before or is this the first time?

If your oven is like ours, you have to hold in the oven knob to light the pilot and continue to hold the knob in for another 30-60 seconds. Then release the knob and the pilot light should stay on.

My DW can't seam to lite our oven. Have you ever had it lite? Spiders seam to love propane appliances.

To light it, turn the knob to pilot, press and hold the knob in at the same time you light the pilot. You light it in the very far back, at the curved up metal partial pipe. I use a fire stick. It can take a moment for the pilot to lite. Once lite, the pilot will stay lite until you turn the knob back to off.

DW says if you do get it to lite they heat uneven put a cookie sheet on the lower shelf in to spread the heat. Banana breads almost done

The oven in our 2006 19H EXP would not lite and could not get the pilot to start either. Come to find after spending about 2 hours of messing around there is a little screw that controls the pilot behind the stove/oven knob that had been off since it came from the factory. We purchased this used last year and the oven had never been used since it came from the factory (2006). Turned the screw, lit the pilot and oven worked fine...Guess I should have started with the easy fixes first

We have a 2013 Greyhawk 31FS. It is usually stored in our driveway for 3 months in between our trips south. We always have to bleed the air by holding the pilot light down for what seems like minutes while having a lit bbq lighter near the pilot light.
