Yes, the converter from the mid 80's is a battery cooker. But I am still using them in both my late 80's trailers. Have learned how to live with it.

the oven
Are you sure that you have propane in the tank? Is the valve on the tank open?
After turning on the burner knob on , do you hear air coming out? Do you smell propane yet?

Yes plenty of propane. I did not provide enough to info in my original post
The oven looks like new,has not been used but very little. The pilot lights and burns great. When the thermostat is set on a temp. The secondary pilot never comes on (30 min). Thanks for responding
