I have a very old Crown stove, which is still quite functional, except for two problems, one of which is that the oven won't light. There are actually two ovens, side by side, in this model. On one of them the door doesn't completely shut, so I thought I'd just start using the other side. Unfortunately, the other side won't light.

I can see that the pilot light is on - it's constantly on. But when I turn on the oven, nothing much happens. I did look and could see that there is a larger flame, but that's it. I don't even really smell any gas, even after leaving the oven turned on for about a minute.

Now the other oven lights just fine. I turn the knob and in a few seconds...poof... oven lights up.

The oven used to work just fine, but as we didn't really need two anymore, we just quit using it. Then when I tried to turn it on to avoid using the other one whose door won't close tightly, it wouldn't light.

It all looks pretty clean in that oven too.

Any advice on what to do?

Thanks.
