I have a dish to cook but my oven won't start.
It's an old gas oven, brand is "Magic Chef". There's only one knob for the gas, that adjusts the temp of the oven. Usually I turn that knob and hear the gas come out and it heats up. Tonight I turn the knob, but no sound, no heat. I checked under the oven and the pilot light is on.
I remember having been in that situation once in the past and after a day or two it resumed working normally, so I blamed it on the little clock, that seems like it can automate the start/stop of the oven? I've never used it myself so I don't know if it's even working. There's an hour and a minute hand, and then there's a little red hand that seems to be the timer hand. I've tried turning both the time hand and the hour/minute hands in every direction imaginable and that doesn't seem to do anything.
I was getting ready to work with the oven all night long.... I'm stuck!
