Disabling pilots on O'Keefe and Merit stove/oven

dump123456789 | May 28, 2009 10:48 AM

Is it possible to disable the pilots on an O'Keefe and Merit stove/oven, and just go back to manual ignition ?

Right now, the gas is on and all 4 pilots are lit, and it's generating a lot of heat even though none of the burners are on. Because of the season, and the infrequency of use, I'd like to leave the gas on, but have the pilots off, and light the burners manually when I need to use it. However, I have to disable the pilots, otherwise I'll have a huge gas leak. I just don't know how to do this.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
