    Default Oven won't light but I can smell gas when I turn it on

    Model Number: unknown
    Brand: Amana
    Age: More than 10 years

    My Amana oven won't light. (The model number is too faded to read but it's an older model and doesn't have any frills. It's as basic as you can get.) I can smell and hear the gas when I turn on the oven. The top burners work and light fine. I tried opening the bottom broiler area and putting a lighter near the burner while the gas is on but nothing happens. Not sure what to do...

    That attachment didn't come through, is your model pilot-less flame or does it have a pilot flame?
