Q. I've turned the knob to pilot and depressed it but I still can not light the pilot

A.  Start by lighting the stove to confirm that there is gas in the line.  Turn the gas knob to the pilot and keep pressing down the knob as you try to light the pilot. You may have to keep pressing down the knob for a while as you will need to purge the gas line of air.  If that does not work you may need to clean out the pilot light aperture with either a solvent or compressed air.  Do not use any object to clean the aperture.
