Re: gas range with stricker burners and oven burner
Most likely the oven will not work because the striker is not coming on. I am not very familiar with this stove but most thermador gas oven uses a electronic igniter. the switch controls both the igniter(striker) and safety solenoid so if neither the striker or solenoid is not powered up the switch may be the problem

Can you post more details like: Does the oven ignitor come on (glow orange)? Can you hear the oven gas valve click open and/or smell gas? Do all the stovetop burners work fine? Have you checked your propane tank to be sure you are not out of gas?
I have a Thermador Gas Range PG364GDBS - Oven, 4 burners, and center griddle. All are gas. The four burners and gas oven
work fine. The griddle just stopped working, no spark. Turning on the
griddle control, the gas valve opens(hear it), gas flows (smell it),
but the ignitor will not spark (no loud or faint spark that I can
hear). I got a replacement ignition device (mount at the burner)
thinking it might be the problem, but still no spark. I checked the AC
voltage at the terminal and measured 39 VAC between the terminal and
ground. Not sure if that is the correct voltage. Any insights or advice
would be great.
Lowly what the potentior does is turn on the burner control system. When you turn on a normal burner you are opening a gas valve and closing a switch to generate a spark. Thus gas flow to the burner and spark. On the extra low simmer burner there is a electric solenoid between the burner head and the gas valve. this has to open as well for gas to flow. What the potentior does is signal the simmer control what level of flame you are requesting and telling the spark module to generate a spark. Once you go to the exlow setting the potentior tells the simmer control what level of heat and will cycle the flame on and off. So when the burner knob was between low and extra low, the flame would cycle on and off. You have to seperate the top section of the cooktop from the burner box to change the potentior for it sits on top of the gas valve for that burner.
it sounds like the oven safety valve is bad, it will reach a point when the pilot will make enough energy to keep itself lit, but not enough to open the gas valve to light. it will need to be replaced. if you are handy you can do this, but make sure you shut off the gas to the range first. you should be able to find a replacement online, if not check with a local LP gas company that sells parts to the public.
