And it will eventually die from that since they are not designed to withstand prolonged operation.
Pull the knobs off to see if the cam operated switches can be seen.
If so, then operate them with an insulated stick (skewer, for example) to see which one is not opening as it should.
Ranges are by their nature grease and dust collectors in places you can't reach well.
If you don't have time to mess with it now, pull the plug to avoid killing the ignition transformer.

Oven ignitors are not the "clicking" variety - they use a hot surface ignitor and "feed through" to a current sensing gas valve - in short, if the ignitor is going bad, then the gas valve won't open (safety). Try replacing the HSI in the bottom of your oven - do an online search and match up model and serial of your unit to the part. Be careful no to touch or break the new ignitor - VERY FRAGILE!!!

Problem solved, Turned out to be the flame fail device. Next problem was sourcing part. Turns out that allegedly Cannon is now owned by Hotpoint so sourced part through them

If you smell gas, then check the ignitor circut first. A spark ignitor usually has a grey or orange wire, leading from the ignitor to the input circut. Try testing the terminal where the ignitor is powered, when the unit should be calling for ignition. If there is ample voltage to the ignitor, but it will not spark, shut off the power and the gas to the appliance and remove the pilot assembly. The ignitor will either unclamp or unscrew from it, and can now be replaced. Check to see if it is properly spaced (which it should be if undisturbed), or if any deposits are on it. Sometimes they can be properly spaced or cleaned to work once again.
