Magic Chef oven doesn't light

I am having problems lighting our Magic Chef Recreational oven in our Prowler Lite. Cooktop burners light but the auto pilot for the stove does not. Don't even hear gas. Is there a button I should be looking for to light my oven? Thanks for any assistance out there

My oven on flagstaff 831rkss does not have a auto light on the oven , only on the cook top

I had to hold in on the pilot light button for a while and then it lit ?

Try turning the knob to pilot and push in and hold.Use a long match or butane lighter and reach in the oven to the thermostate sensor.The lighting area will be in front of the thermo.When it lights hold the button in for 30 seconds then release.That should do it.Most oven units must be lit manually

Thank you all for your suggestions. Actually I figured it out just before we left on our trip. Held down the auto pilot then turned it to broil where the pilot lit. Took about 60 seconds to actually turn on to broil. I could then turn it down to my desired temp. However, I found that each time I needed to use the oven or cooktop I had to use a match.

We also found out that between trips,(we camp probably 2/3 times a month,) the gas will be replaced with air in the line and you have to hold the match longer than usual to get the propane back down the line into the oven. Safe travels. and have a ball out in your camper..
