Turning the oven on

Hello,

I have a 2011 JayFlight. I tried turning on the oven for the first time but wasn't sure if I was doing it correctly. The oven's knob says Pilot:Push/Hold. I pushed and held but nothing happened. What am I suppose to look for to know that it's on? Should I see a spark to ignite the gas?

You have to light the pilot light with a match or long lighter while holding in the knob. The pilot is located inside the oven by the burner if I recall correctly. It will take a few seconds for the pilot light to light.

I had the same questions when we bought our 1st TT.

Run the propane to the stove first & light a burner. Once you know your lines are full of gas, then light the oven pilot. Push & hold, then light the pilot & once lit, keep pushing that knob it for about 30 seconds or more. Once it's warmed up & the gas is flowing "naturally" it'll stay lit ... however (in my experience) don't count on it to stay lit. You'll want to keep an eye on it. We use the oven quite often but don't normally keep the pilot going.

We use our oven on a regular bases and never keep the pilot lit after we are done. No use wasting propane, easy enough to relight.
