Gas Range - Lighting Electric Ignition During a Power Failure

In the case of a power outage, you can light the surface burners on your electric ignition gas range with a match. Hold a lighted match to the burner, then turn the knob to the low position.

Note: Use extreme caution when lighting the burners this way.

The oven of your gas range is lit by electric ignition, eliminating the need for standing pilots. Current gas ovens cannot be lit without power.

Some models (1990 and older)can be lit manually. To determine if your model is so equipped, refer to the specific Owner's Manual for your model.
