Hello this is Dave and I'm happy to help you. I will need the model number to be specific but all Gemini stoves should have electric pilots. Does the top work? Does broil work?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
model Maytag MGT8885X. top burners click when turned to light but do not light up. I don't know how to work the oven and broiler as there is no manual with the stove. Just have the lighted console above the burners.

Okay, I can help you with a manual. Can you smell or hear gas when you turn on the top burners?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
no i do not hear or smell gas.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
gas knob is turned vertical with the pipe so I know it is on.
Expert:  Appliance Tech Dave replied 1 year ago.

Is there any other gas appliance in the house? It sounds like the supply is turned off somewhere else.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
i got burners to light. now i am trying to turn on both ovens.
Expert:  Appliance Tech Dave replied 1 year ago.

For the oven you press bake and set the temperature and then press start. I can send you a link to the owners manual if interested.
