I'm about 45 minutes north, though I'll be heading to Vermont for the weekend.

Others are most likely correct, your stove does not have a "pilot off" position on the main oven valve. I forgot that was a later change to Magic Chef ranges. As they have said, there is a valve under the cooktop to turn the gas off to the oven system.

Magic Chef info from 1968 owner's manual

I retyped this and scanned the figures. Hope this helps.

Lou,

We flew into Hartford,Ct. and drove to Stockbridge,Mass. several years ago, I think this was one of the most beautiful places I have had the privilege of seeing, loved the Norman Rockwell Museum. I hope to visit Vermont someday.

Falcon-N-Air, if you enjoyed the southern Berkshires, I'd highly recommend a tour through the northern portion of the county and into Vermont, should the opportunity arise. My wife and I will be spending our weekends in Wilmington, VT this summer, and can't say enough about the hospitality as well as the beauty throughout the area. God bless!

Lou,

I really hope to have the opportunity to visit New England again some day. We stayed a week in Stockbridge,but unfortunately for me the first night of our arrival I became ill and spent the better part of that week in the bed at the wonderful Bed and Breakfast we were staying at. We were able to see quite a bit,but had a lot more we wanted to do. We did manage to make it to the Norman Rockwell museum, I felt really bad...but so glad I got to see it! All the best!

Our '66 Safari oven does not have a pilot position on any of the control knobs. With the gas valve under the stovetop on, the pilot in the oven and the one on the stovetop are always supplied with gas.

It always takes what seems like forever to get them to light. I've learned to turn on the gas and then wait a minute or two before trying to light the pilots. It also helps to have a lighter with a soft flame--the really strong barbeque lighter flames blow out the pilot light before it gets going.

Mimiandrews, I turn on one of the burners to get the gas flowing to the range and to the pilots more quickly. Given the problems with our range, I turn the gas on, do whatever on the cooktop and turn the gas off again- planning on replacing the range in short order. It's a little scary having the always-on pilot in a sleeping area.
