    I have the same problem. I went to heat it today and it warmed up to 400 degrees and then promptly dropped to 270 in about 10 minutes. I don't smell gas and the stove top and clock are functioning. Thank goodness we had our holiday dinner last night. I'll call a repair person later this week.

Helloemauldin Welcome to Fixya
My name is Huum,

When you turn the thermostat on your range on it sends 120 volts to the bake valve and ignitor. The bake valve and ignitor are wired in series and the ignitor draws all the current and heats up. As the ignitor heats its resistance changes and when it is cherry red the current switches to the gas valve and it opens. The amp draw on the ignitor needs to be 3.2-3.6 amps for the gas valve to open. The gas valve has gas to it at all times. The gas valve should open within 40 seconds after the ignitor starts to glow.
If the ignitor is glowing red and the gas valve doesn’t open the ignitor is usually the problem. Sometimes the ignitor will glow red but the resistance doesn’t change and the gas valve doesn’t draw the current.

This is not a do it your selfer!

The sensory board has gone out three times and the stove is 5 years old

I don't think the boards are your problem / look for power problem like low voltage / voltage surges / -- because this is 120 volts you could use a suruge control at the plug .. don't use a cheap one .. board arn't cheap .. make sure the electrical gorund is a good on.. poor grounds cause other problems in th house it good. **** ..

Amana gas oven not working

The ignitor may be too weak to open the gas valve. If you have a volt/ohm meter capable of reading AMPS you can hook up to a ignitor wire and turn the oven ON. If you read less than 3.5 amps replace the ignitor. If 3.5 amps or more are read,replace the gas valve.

Oven slow to ignite and come to temperature.

Change the igniter.

As they age, they often times will no longer draw enough amperage to allow the gas safety valve to open. Increasing the line voltage would help, but that's a little impractical.

Oven will not light

Most likely your oven igniter is faulty. When they get worn they will heat up but not get hot enough for the gas to turn on.
