More than likely a bad ignitor
Here is how to tell If the ignitor is glowing it should be VERY bright, if it is dim orange it is weak and bad.

Hi, it sounds like the oven ignitor might be bad. Remove the floor panel inside the oven and you will see the ignitor attached to the burner assembly. Turn the oven on and see if it glows. You can test the connection for the ignitor and see if it gets 120V to it. The most common problem with the gas oven is the ignitor. Most of the time, the ignitor glows but is not strong enough to open the gas valve.
Please let me know if this was helpfull or if I can assist you further.

SOURCE: oven won`t come on
If the bake manifold is the only feature that does not work, your problem may be as simple as replacing the igniter. The following link explains:
Both manifolds in the oven are fed from the same gas source and regulator, and they each have their own igniter. If the broiler is working, its not a gas issue. The only other problem that can cause one manifold to fail and the other to light is a bad relay on the Electronic Oven Control (EOC) board. This is the clock assembly on the operator console. The igniter is a cheaper option and the more common fail item. I would recommend checking the igniter first.
Replacement igniters (if needed) can be purchased at any of the following websites:
Prices vary between sites, so shop all of them for the best deal.
NOTE: If the connector plug on the replacement igniter you receive does not match the existing igniter, you should be instructed to cut the wires and splice them using ceramic wire lugs that should be included with the kit. Do not use standard wire lugs as they will melt. The ceramic lugs and the wiring to the igniter are heat resistant.
If you have any questions, or require additional assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.
