It’s my vacation home ,It was working until I removed burner plates, to clean stove top. Next day it wouldnt turn on, even with a match, The pilot light for the oven , off also ? Do they work off one pilot? Thank you, for any help you can give( I’m a senior, alone & staying in- Social distancing ..coronavirus )

  • In many ovens, the main gas valve is controlled by a thermocouple that senses the pilot light. That way if the pilot isn't lit, then there's no way to open the main gas valve (which is a good thing.) When I Google this model number, the parts lists mention an igniter, which would mean there is no pilot and your problem may lie there instead. – Duston May 8 '20 at 13:01
  • MIght be a coincidence if your tank ran low just at that time, if you have a tank rather than a natural gas line from the street. And just to be a bother, did you make sure there's still electrical power (plugged in, oven light comes on, etc)? – Carl Witthoft May 8 '20 at 15:27
  • I’ve just realized it’s 1am ... it may be true where you are, but it is noon some other places – jsotola May 8 '20 at 16:09
