Old oven won't light


I have an old gas stove. The oven won't light. The pilot stays lit and flares up when you turn the oven on, but still won't ignite the burner. Any ideas why and what to do about it?

try turning off the gas, at the pilot clean it good, blow it out with compressed air. try it again, if it still will not light you will have to replace the gas valve.
