Most ovens, unless they have an electric igniter (does it go tick tick tick when plugged in and turned on? If so, it has an electic ignition.) have a pilot light. In order to keep gas from flowing out, and to prevent a possible explosion when the pilot light has gotten put out, they have an electric thermocouple on them that shuts off the gas when it gets cold. Plug the cord back in, and relight your pilot light by holding the lighter (I recommend a fireplace match or bbq lighter, not a cigarette lighter to prevent singed knuckle hairs!) over the thermocouple for a couple of minutes.

Most likely a hot-surface ignitor has failed. If it doesn't consume enough current, the gas valve won't open. It's usually a fairly easy fix, once you gain access to the ignitor and have a new one to replace it with. Make sure you unplug the range...

if the springs are not broken , the hinges are bent down ( droping the door for 60 yrs). Its tricky to bend back the hinges back. Springs and parts are no longer avaliable but you may be able to match someting close for a spring if you have the old one.

We replaced the igniter which I bought from the appliance repair service. We now have a working oven.
Thankyou for responding to my email.
