Default Gas kenmore oven will not light

I have an old Kenmore gas stove/oven. The stove works well. The oven I cannot get the pilot light to light at all. It is old and nothing is electronic on it. It does not plug in, in any way. I looked all around the door panels hoping to find a model number. I have never pulled this thing from the wall as I am not sure how to in a safe manor. This trailer is a 67 year model and the stove I am sure is very old. However at this time I can not afford a new one. I assume that my first step would be to find the model number. Please help me. I am not even sure what to look at first. Any help you can offer would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Moofiepoo

The right model number could probably help, but I'm afraid not much due to age of the unit. Anyway, post the model number and I will do my best.

P.S. A pictures of the oven (inside and outside) could be helpful.

Gene.

I have looked hi and low for the model number. I have not found one single thing with a little metal tag that may be a number. So I quess first things first. Were do I look? I have looked on edges of door and under the top. Might it be on back? If so, how do I check it safely? Is there a secret to pulling out a gas stove? Do I turn off the gas? I have never had a gas appliance before. So I am a little uncomfortable, just because I have no knowledge of them.

Is it built in of freestanding?

If it's built in then the model number should be somewhere on the frame.
If it's freestanding the the model number could on the frame as well as under the top panel.

As I said, a few pictures might help too.
