The pilot light of a stove can go out for various reasons, but for it to go out frequently can be hazardous due to gas buildup. One of the most common reasons is draftiness, and another is a damaged pilot light supply line.?æ

You can but it just has to be done manually..

Yes you can. If your stove has an electronic starter for the burners, MAKE SURE that you light then using a match or a long bbq grill lighter. When you turn on your burners if you hear a tick, tick, tick sound before they light then you have electric starters and you will need to light then manually. If you don't then you will needlessly put gas vapors into the room which is dangerous. If your stove has a permanently lit pilot light then you are good to go.

Newer gas stoves have an electric spark to light the burners instead of a standing pilot light.
