Hey guys,

We have an older gas oven, with no igniter. Looked everywhere did not see one. All there is, is a gas valve and a pilot light. The pilot light is connected to the gas valve with a small wire.

The problem. Turn on the oven and after 3 minutes oven used to light up. Now not lighting up at all, but the pilot light still going strong.

Any ideas? Thanks.

Without knowing the brand, age, model would guess you have a defective safety valve if the pilot assy is elongating when you turn the thermostat on.

Welcome.  Be sure the bulb on the end of the safety is in the pilot flame when it elongates first.

If the flame doesn't jump down, could be a bad thermostat.  More details in the article below, skip to the section on standing pilot ignition systems:
