Question about Kitchen Ranges
I own a gas Kenmore ultra bake self cleaning super capacity stove model#72022102 that is in my mountain cabin and was last used 4 months ago on our last vacation. It worked perfectly then. Now on our current vacation the gas stove top works perfect but BOTH the oven AND the broiler will not stay ignited. Both will make the normal clicking noise 3-4 times, ignite like normal but after 10-15 seconds they turn off and a few minutes later will repeat the process of igniting then shutting off. It does not display any codes, I have tried cleaning the little ignition prong for the broiler even though I am pretty sure that's not the problem since it's igniting just not staying on. The white wire that ignites the oven looks perfectly fine. Again, its happening to both the oven and the broiler. Any help is greatly appreciated as the man's favorite meal comes out of the oven. thanks.

It may be the ignitor, they can crack and you wouldn't even see. Good news is they are cheap ($5-20) and they are usually easy to replace. But before you replace it...
When set to bake, does the "oven cycle" light come on? If not, that means no power is being sent to the ignitor. Reason? There is a switch in the oven latch, to make sure a) latch must be closed for cleaning cycle and b) latch must be unlocked for baking. On mine, the switch button gets stuck, so even when the latch is unlocked, it thinks it is locked and will not allow the bake cycle to proceed. Cycling the latch a few times may free it, otherwise you'll need to replace the switch (not that hard but a bit of a pain to get to).

its possible your gas regulator is bad or the gas line to the ignitor is stopped up look at the line and see if some type of food has blocked the outlet

the electric ignition is bad and needs replaced in oven. I had the same problem a few months ago and it was the ignitor for the oven. if replacing it yourself, be very careful with ignitor, it is very fragil. do not touch ignitor itself, hold on to it by the base of it. they are not that hard to change.

Testimonial: "Thank you!! "
It appears your Ignitor has failed in this instance.
For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...
FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.
PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.
If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.
Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.
If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.
Thanks for using FixYa - a 4 THUMBS rating is appreciated for answering your FREE question.
