We have a 1980 Magic Chef (though I don't know the model # offhand) and I am not able to get either the oven pilot or the stove top to light. The instructions talk about lighting the oven pilot and the stove pilot (if so equipped) but I don't know how to determine if my stove top 'is so equipped'. Is the stove pilot where all four of the burner tubes come together?
Is it best to light the oven, then the stove? I tried lighting the stove at the burners, but no luck.
When I tried lighting the oven, I did not try turning the temp up as suggested elsewhere, but will try that tonight. Sorry for the terrible oven photo - it is a small space and I'll have to try using my phone for another shot as I couldn't find my camera in well enough for a better photo.
Our trailer was unused for close to 10 years by the PO. We replaced the tanks and regulator, so there could be air in the lines, but I thought one or the other should have lit.
