If the stove lights. I would go right to the burner tube and push something through it till it comes out in front of the gas orifice. The hope is you have pushed through a spider web and the tube is open. A mud dauber nest would be more work to remove. Then try turning it on.

Still no flame? Lots of good suggestions have been provided above.

I had the spider thing happen overnight once. I now put part of a dog flea collar in the outside access bay of the water heater and have not had a problem with spiders since.

Do not think I've ever seen a valve like that before.. Perhaps they only use it on selected models.


Home is where I park it.
