Question about KitchenAid Kitchen Ranges
Ignitor does not work when you turn knob to light but it works fine when the other knobs are set to light
This sounds like the switch for that specific burner is bad. You will need to order the switch for that particular burner. Sometimes it is the entire harness that will need to be replaced because all the switches come as a set. The front or top switch panel will have to be removed to replace the switches. Turn off the power before attempting any service.

The bottom element has probably "blown" out. See if there is a small spot that looks like it exploded. It is similar to an extension cord getting warm and melting in a spot. The only answer is to obtain a new element.

There has to be a protection system in the burner assembly to cut the supply of gas to the burner if it does not light. For the case of an oven the supply must be cut off immediately if the burner and its pilot go out. For that gas control system to work the burner control must "recognize" with a sensor when the burner is lit and when it is not. Pushing the knob "in" momentarily on this model bypasses the protection system momentarily to allow a burner to be ignited in the first place. If releasing the knob extinguishes the flame the control system is not "seeing" the flame. I tried to find some detail info on you particular ignition system but to no avail so all I can offer is a general approach to these kinds of problems . You need to find and clean or replace the sensor used to detect a flame. It could be an optical one (doubt that) or a temperature flame sensor, a thermocouple sensor, or some other kind I haven't thought of. Fixing this problem involves first determining what kind of sensor it uses. A copy of a service manual for this model can help you determine that. Try to clean the flame detector, and if that doesn't work you have to replace it or the gas control assembly it is a part of. If you have a spark ignition and its not sparking when it should first clean it --carefully--. Spilled food can short them out. Unplug the range before doing this. The owners manual shows it to be under the top burners which can be removed for cleaning this.

Gas oven does not work. Burners and broiler work. When oven kGnob is turned on, there is no glow at ignitor, nor any gas smell.

I just read this here:
that explained how to test if the problem is the thermostat. It said to watch the pilot as you open the thermostat to turn on the oven. If the thermostat is ok the pilot should get bigger, if the pilot does not change when turning on the thermostat, then the thermostat is bad.
