Pilot light would not stay on after releasing the "pilot lite" light knob

First I turned off the propane tanks.

I then removed the two stove racks on the top of the stove and removed the metal cover surrounding the burner elements.

Next I detached the gas line and quickly inserted the temporary plug (supplied with stove) to stop the left over gas from entering the camper.

I then removed the two lower screws at the base of the stove just below the oven door and the two screws at the top rear of the stove securing the stove .

I now removed the stove.

Next I detached the pilot element from inside the oven and from the opposite end at the top of the stove at the burner area.

Now I replaced the element with the new one and replaced the stove all in the reverse order.

Pilot would not light or stay on

Replaced the pilot and tubing, this is a RV stove and oven. The easiest way to replace it was to pull the stove slightly away from the wall as the tubing had a securing strap to the back stove wall which had to be removed to get the pilot tubing removed and the new put in. That was the most time consuming. Anyone with some handyman capability can do this job quite easily. If you use part of the old end of the tube connection at the pilot as I did make sure that you insert the new small pin hole restricter (my term).

Oven pilot would not stay lit

I removed the stove top over the burners. Then I Opened the oven door and removed the shelf and then the bottom tray. It had to be pushed back against springs and lifted up. If it does not lift, hit the front of the tray in an upward motion with the heal of your hand. The lets you access the oven burner area. I removed the wingnut from the metal deflector over the burner and removed it. Now you have access to the pilot assembly. remove two acrews ans save them. Go back to the top and with a wrench, remove the caps that hold the tubes to the oven valve. Be sure the gas is turned off at the propane tank, now remove the main gas line from the stove valve system. Now remove the four screws along the sides of the oven top. This will allow the oven to slide out enough to reach the back where a plastic clamp is holding the two tubes attached to the pilot. These will need to be pulled toward the back of the stove as you pull the pilot assemble out the from of the oven. Once you have worked the old pilot assembly out, install the new one in reverse order. Reconnect all the tubing nice and snug, after pushing the oven back into place. After you get everything back together, before you light up, use leak detector fluid to be sure you don't have a gas leak. Before you even order parts though, you should try to adjust the pilot flame if it is very small. It should be at least 1/4" high. 1/8" is not enough to heat the thermocupler. I had to drill a hole thru the front of the stove in the location of the pilot adjustment because Magic Chef drilled the hole in the wrong place. I ended up doing this after the new pilot assembly did not correct the problem. David Calif.
