    January 20, 2021Hi Everyone, Just joined this group. Tried using my oven last night and it doesn't work. i have a 2021 Alpha Wolf Forest River. its like it doesn't get any propane. My stove top works though. Weird right, does anyone know why?

      Jim & Sharon Ham January 20, 2021 Our oven requires lighting a pilot light first while holding in the knob.  Then release knob and sometimes it stays lighted and sometimes not.   We know...how silly to have a standing pilot light!   If the burners on top work, that is proof you have LP fl...  more

      Marty & Patty Martinez January 20, 2021 Sometimes it is as easy as being sure to bleed off the air in the line. Just turn on your burners. That will allow propane to fill the gas lines. Hopefully a simple fix.

      Eggman January 20, 2021 There is usually a pilot light in the back of the oven that has to be lit. If you want to keep it lit you have to leave the knob on "pilot" until you get ready to depart. If you turn the knob all the way off it will extinguish the pilot light and you have...  more

      rick&dee January 20, 2021 you should have a manual for the stove if it's a new camper

      Reality124 January 20, 2021 The line may be kinked when they installed it or it needs to be purged.

      Terry & Donna Schroeder January 20, 2021 Turn to pilot setting, push in knob and hold it while standing on your head to light the pilot light, then you must hold the knob until the thermocouple near the pilot flame turns red. Release knob and turn to temperature setting you need.  Roll over on f...  more

        Joe and Lori January 20, 2021 Hold in on knob and click away. Doing headstand like previous person said, you'll see the pilot light. Wait a few seconds then turn to temperature.

      Bandit455 January 20, 2021 I don’t think that ‘clicker knob’ is for the oven, at least on mine it is not. It is just used to light the stove top burners.

      Diver001 January 20, 2021 The oven may have a pilot light, in which case the stand on hamead is close

      TeamFoxy January 20, 2021 I usually kneel rather than stand on my head. I have a small flashlight that I place on the oven door pointed towards the pilot tube. I turn and hold the oven control with my left hand and use a long grill lighter to light the pilot. As mentioned, hold th...  more

        Jim & Sharon Ham March 3, 2021 Defective thermal couple.
      • Christine1963
        Bandit455 March 3, 2021 Thermo couples can and do fail, but more often they simply come loose at the pilot light. If it has cooled down, grab the thin copper tube that appears to just end as it goes through the pilot light flame. See if you can wiggle it around and feel any move...  more

      Dr9855 April 21, 2021 Has the same problem. Takes a while for gas to get too Ben. Hold flame button up to 1-2 mts for pilot to light.
