Quick before my power goes out again.... Help!!! ** Right Category?? It's about a stove**

I've been having rolling blackouts since 10 this morning. Sometimes it's out for an hour sometimes the lights just flicker, sometimes it's a quick on and off. Either way it's becoming a pain in my _ _ _.

I have a gas stove with an electrical ignitor. <~~~~ I spelled that wrong lol

My question is to you ladies... Can I still light it without the ignitor? <~~~~ again

On my stove I I have to push in, then click click click and whooooosh! Fire.

When the power goes out I now that I can still turn the nob and gas will come out. Can I just stick a match in there?

I'm dead broke and just about every place around me is closed for Christmas so I HAVE to cook!!

  • Yes, you can light it manually with a match or lighter. Aim & flame is best. Do not leave the gas running long if it will not light.

  • If you have a match light it and then press the button and light it.
