If you have a Wedgewood oven by Atwood, it is important to know how to light the pilot. Wedgewood ovens are commonly found in boats and RVs, and the pilot lights for the ovens need to be manually lit whenever the gas supply is interrupted. The pilot light on a Wedgewood stove is always on the right-hand side of the stove burner, underneath the broiler pan. In order to light the pilot, you need to know how to correctly position the stove knobs.

Step 1

Turn the stove gas valve to the "On" position.

Step 2

Turn the knob on the far right-hand side of your Wedgewood oven counterclockwise until it reads "Pilot On--Push/Hold."

Step 3

Locate the oven pilot on the right-hand side of the oven, underneath the broiler.

Step 4

Light a match. Push in and hold the "Pilot On--Push/Hold" knob on the far-right of your Wedgewood stove, holding the lit match directly underneath the oven pilot. Once the pilot lights, keep holding the knob in for five more seconds. Let go of the knob and check to make sure that the pilot is still lit.

Step 5

Turn the knob on the far right of your oven to "Pilot Push/Hold." Your oven and broiler are now ready for use.
