    March 8, 2020I can’t get my oven pilot to light. All three burners work fine and light quickly. My GD is about 8 months old and I have never used the oven. Propane detector indicates no prone coming into oven. Any ideas?

      Chief Fagawe March 8, 2020 Most likely the thermocoupling
      Are you lighting with lighter. It will take sometimes a minute to get the thermocoupling hit enough.

        JLF March 8, 2020 I'm sure most understand what you are referring to as a "thermocoupling", but for those unfamiliar with this device, and so as not to propagate an incorrect term, the correct name is thermocouple.  No "ing".

      Full Time Barb March 8, 2020 I tried both the igniter and I lighter.  I just wasn’t holding the knob in.  Dumb.  RTFB!

        wannabervin March 8, 2020 Don’t feel bad. I thought something must be wrong when I was trying to start the oven by pressing on the cooktop’s igniter button.
