Perfect thanks. I lifted up the top a nd saw the 2 pilot lights. The broiler and oven share 1 burner and I think I see the pilot for that also. I will try to uh... get some long matches before I try lighting that.
I wonder how much it costs to run 3 pilot lights 24/7?
About $50 a year, for most stoves. When gas was cheaper, it was much less. You can probably turn off the pilots for the stove top, and use a match or long lighter to light the burners, if you want. The oven is a bigger pain to light, of course.
Depending on how old this oven is, there should be a safety device that keeps the gas from flowing when the pilot is off. Depending on the type, there will be a button on a thermocouple to push to allow gas to flow while you're lighting the oven. If there's not a thermocouple, there's a flame switch or a fluid safety, and you heat that to get gas to flow.
Both these systems depend on having the flame high enough to heat the safety device. If the gas jet is dirty or defective, you may not be able to get it to stay lit. It's also possible that things have failed, and you'll need parts.
