    You sure it aint an electric oven??

    The cleaning stuff has probs blocked the gas holes, give it a bit of a scrub with some water. I'm sure vie done this before

    Stop drinking before you do it

    Sometimes the ignition is run off a AA battery, have a look in your manual to see if this is the case

    yeah i normally light an electric oven with a taper..............haha doughnut

    check the electrode at the back, should be behind a plate that covers the gas flames. You may need to clean it or if it doesn't spark when you try to ignite it bend the holder a little so the electrode is closer to the metal plate. To test you could always put a screwdriver underneath it to see if the electrode isn't sparking.

    Happened to us but resolved it with the above
