Question about Kitchen Ranges
The oven takes forever to light.I tapped on the regulator and it would come on.I replaced the gas oven regulator and valve assembly but that did not solve the problem. The ignitor does turn on but i'm not getting gas

The ignitor can be replaced through the oven. When you take it loose, If you cant find the plug just cut the wires and wire nut the wires together with the porcelin wire nuts provided with the ignitor.

This might be grit or ash that might have found it's into the burner. When the gas flows into the burner has enough velocity to pick up and carry small debris to the inside of the openings in the burner. When you tap it the debris falls from the holes and gas can flow again. If you are on propane, it is common to have grit in the lines. Natural is less likely to have grit unless you have had construction nearby. Finally, does this system use a flame sense probe? If yes the sense probe might also be dirty and need to be wiped with steel wool (soap free)

It appears your gas valve solenoid has failed in this instance.
For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...
FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.
PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.
If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.
Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.
If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.
Thanks for using FixYa - a 4 THUMBS rating is appreciated for answering your FREE question
