Hi there,

Since buying the Coyote last September we had not used the oven until trying three weeks back. The propane was getting to the three burners on top but nothing when trying to lite the oven pilot.
Told the dealership and they looked at it a few days later. They said it was just an air lock. Picked the trailer up after hours Friday past to bring it to storage and quickly tried it to see if I could get a propane smell from the pilot but nothing.
Am I doing something wrong and is there an easy fix for this to save me travelling back to the dealer? It is still under warranty just hoping to save a hassle.

Thanks for any help.
Steve

In two years, we have lit the oven twice, if that much.
Best I can remember, I have to hold the lighter in that spot for several moments before it will lite.
Try again. Sorry for the lack of details.....

You need to hold the flame on the thermocouple which is near the pilot orifice. Once the thermocouple heats up gas will begin to flow...

It can be a two person job. One to hold the knob in and one to reach way back there and light it.

This sounds strange, but I pull out the knob before pushing it in. This gives me more play on lighting the pilot than merely pushing it in. Another thing, I also hold the knob past the pilot light, it needs more gas or room or ?

Try those two things. Also, the time it takes to light can seem forever, but it exceeds the instant lighting of the oven ar the stove at home.

Good Luck

Do you have a slide out where the stove is. If so, check under the slide, you could have a pinched gas line. Let me know, as I had a problem with my stove having a low flame and might be able to help further.

HOLD the knob in while lighting and then still hold the knob in for about 30 seconds more! PIA if you ask me, mine is not staying lit so I am told I need a new oven and that will cost $700 OUCH!
