    Hard to light pilot light.

    Could be:

    • A failing thermocouple/ thermopile (no model # given, so I don’t know which)
    • A dirty pilot burner
    • A gas pressure issue
    • A number of other possible issues

     

    For a more accurate assessment, you should call a service company.

    American Range likes to have the pilot set off too the right of the hole that you insert your lighter into, use a flashlight to ensure that you are indeed trying to light the correct spot. Unfortunately as ectofix says, without more information it’s hard to be more helpful

    Good Luck
