Look up product manual on internet.
Look at label located inside oven door, and add .pdf to search parameter to help find manual.
Then read section about lighting appliance.

If power is out, then pilot will not have any gas >> if gas control is electronic.
Many electronic gas controls require electric power to operate circuit board.

In old days, you removed the bottom tray on oven to access burner and pilot orifice. Then you pushed down switch to release gas through pilot tube, and put lit match into the gas stream to light pilot. Hold down switch until pilot flame heated tip of thermocouple which caused magnetic switch to stay open inside gas control. Release switch and pilot stayed lit.

Safety concerns and vast advances in manufacturing cheapness have changed gas appliances so they are more inconvenient for do-it-yourselfers during ordinary power outage.
Cook hamburger over metal bucket with newspaper, and grease on newspaper burns enough to cook hamburger.
People always buy generators and flashlights, but nobody suggest buying barbeque briquets and starter fluid as way to keep warm and cook.

Question posted under analog power strip.
Analog timer has small clock motor.
When the plastic motor gears wear down, the clock begins to make noise.
Might not hear the noise when TV is turned on.

To get analog timers to last longer, be sure to keep timer in dust-free environment so nothing clogs the gears.
I don't know how to take apart this timer without breaking it.

You posted under GE 24-hour analog power strip.
But question says 7-day programmable without giving brand and model number of your timer.
Resourceful do-it-yourselfer cannot sell a product on e-bay without describing what you have.
Same with fixya.

Open following links to help identify timer and for helpful information:

We have 4 solid options.

1) The omission of key information in question leads me to suspect that you have not read manual carefully. Or that timer has programming conflicts.
I write out information when manuals are confusing.

2) I read timer manuals each day, test timers, and write timer manuals.
Some manuals are poorly written and confusing, so add a comment to this thread with model number so I can read manual alongside you.

3) Add a comment with photo of your timer, so I can identify timer and give best answer:

You posted under GE dial-type power strip timer.
GE has 2 different models: 57698 & 15090
15090 has instruction manual, and 57698 doesn't.
http://waterheatertimer.org/GE-timers-and-manuals.html#57698

GE also makes 15077 digital power strip timer:
The digital power strip has Auto mode.

1) If programming has overlaps, or if programs are set for conflicting days, then timer will not operate as expected. Review programming steps by pressing PROG button.

2) If current time is not set, then programs will not operate. Press and HOLD clock button while setting current time.

3) I test timers, and sometimes manuals are confusing so I write out the steps to make sure I understand correctly.

4) It is possible that timer is defective.
