Question about Whirlpool Kitchen Ranges
Unplug the range. Wait a few minutes, then plug the unit back in. Reset the clock per your user manual. A pdf copy of your manual may be available on line at the Magic Chef site or the Maytag site, since Maytag has or had a similar model.

Atlanta...sounds like you may have a power supply problem or the panel is bad. Cut the power, open the unit up and see if there is a fuse in there or a reset. No good? Then replace the circuit board. They just, well, die sometime. Happened to my microwave. Some units may be available remanufactured. Look around on the web.

SOURCE: Re:Whirlpool SF310PKE gas range
When the oven safety valve refuses to open and let gas through, it's almost always because not enough current is flowing through the ignitor. Often an aging ignitor will appear to be glowing pretty brightly but still won't draw enough current to make the valve open. The first thing to try replacing is the ignitor.
You describe your ignitor as "red and glowing" but oven ignitors normally get a lot brighter than "red" -- well into what I'd call yellow.

You have a problem that may be solved with my solution to the Dreaded F7 Problem. Even though you don't have a F7 error on the display the symptoms are all the same. You can find my fix at the following links.
I have shared this with more than 1550 folks and most report success. This problem often develops after a self clean cycle.
I hope it works for you too. Please let me know at the following:
