How do I light my Ooni gas fired pizza oven?

Once you have successfully connected the regulator and gas hose, open the gas valve on your gas cylinder.

Push in and slowly turn the temperature control knob counterclockwise until you hear a click and the burner ignites.

If the burner does not ignite, repeat the step above. It is important to turn the knob slowly. It is normal for it to take a few attempts for the burner to ignite.

Continue to push in the temperature control knob for 5 seconds after ignition and then release.

What to do if flames go out?

Our priority is for you to enjoy Ooni Koda in a safe and fun environment. Ooni Koda has a Flame Safe Device (FSD) built in. This means that if in any case the flame is extinguished while the gas supply is on, the FSD will automatically cut off the gas supply to Ooni Koda safely.

If you notice that the flames have gone out, turn off the gas supply and detach Ooni Koda from the propane tank.

Leave for 5 minutes before re-lighting.

How do I extinguish or 'turn off' Ooni Koda?

Simply rotate the temperature control knob clockwise till you reach the maximum flame mark. Then push the knob in and rotate it clockwise further to completely shut off the gas flow.

Remember to always shut off the valve on the gas regulator as well.
