Dumb question, but please help....
Sorry in advance for the dumb question, but I can't seem to solve it myself.
We have a Hillerange two burner propane range/oven on our boat--probably an older model. We have the two burners working great, but have not been able to figure out how to light the oven. It says to light the pilot light and then turn the dial on the front--problem is I can't figure out how to light the pilot light.
I have looked inside the oven and there is a confusing little piece at the back of the inside of the oven that looks like where the propane gas would come in. I have tried several times to hold a match along it's entire length, while having the dial turned on. It has not lit anywhere, and I haven't wanted to wait any longer as I don't want to cause an explosion.
I also tried the above procedure again with the burners lit, so I knew there was propane coming to the stove. I suspect it's all working fine, and that I'm just doing something wrong, or missing a step, to get it lit.
Can anyone provide a simple but sufficiently detailed explanation of how I might get it working? Unfortunately, I have no access to the boat for the next two weeks, so can't take pictures--and then we'll be sailing for two weeks without access to internet. I'd like to get this figured out before our trip, if possible.
Thanks for any ideas or advice.
