Hi, thanks for using JustAnswer.com. Please remember, I do not get paid for my time and expertise until you accept. Does the pilot light get bigger when you turn the oven to bake? This oven will work with no power, so that is not the issue.
No, the pilot stays the same.
Thats good to know it is not a power thing.
I'll have to do it later, I'm not near the oven.
Should it ignite after I tap?
If the pilot tube from the thermostat is plugged near the p;pilot, where they usually plug, the flame should get bigger. If it does not, the thermostat is likely faulty. There are no parts available for this and the oven has no safety valve, so it may be a good time to look at replacing it.
