After getting an electrician out, apparently the time needs to be set on the oven. As we're in a rental & don't have a manual/ couldn't download one, we got it to work after holding the first two buttons in (the timer buton + the one that looks like a hot pot) along with the + button at the far right, which made the tim tick on, so it could be set.
The oven works now! : )

Believe it or not, the clock has to be set before the oven will light.
To set the clock, instead of using function names for buttons, we'll just call them buttons 1 through 6 going from left to right.
Push buttons 1 and 2 at the same time. You're now in clock setting mode. Push buttons 5 and 6 to make the clock go minus and plus.

It sound like you have a valve problem some types of ignitors have a heat release valve, by hitting it you cause this to release, I would suddjest replacing the ignitor unit but this requires a Gas Fitter that is approved, as all sorts of tests, requires specialised equipment, if you have gas central heating, the service engineer could perform the same for your cooker. remember to ISOLATE MAINS POWER if this model uses it for ignition.
Hope this has been helpful

When I turn on my westinghouse gas oven (GOL476), it appears to ignite immediately but after 3 or 4 minutes there is a strong gas smell which lasts for sometime before it gradually disappears.
