Question: I have an Ovation gas stove I purchased from Quality Farm and Fleet. Is it safe to turn off the gas in summer or do we need to keep pilot lit all summer? We seem to get quite a bit of heat just from the pilot. There is no way to adjust pilot light. We may have learned our lesson about not purchasing a gas stove from someone we can also get service from. Answer: No problem...go ahead and turn off the gas. You can even close the shut off valve behind the stove. When it gets cool again, you'll find lighting instructions inside the manual or labeled on the stove itself.
