This model has no pilot light, it is all electric ignition. When you turn the oven on, it sends electricity to the electric igniter which in turn gets hot and opens the gas valve, allowing the oven burner to light. All you have to do is plug it in, there is no pilot to light at all for the oven or the top burners.

See the picture below. Is that red part on yours up or down as in the picture? That is mounted on the back and where the gas line attaches.
