First look to see if the ignitor is coming on. Most common problem is the ignitor is weak or just bad. When the power is applied to the ignitor it glows and builds up resistance to open the gas valve then it lights. If the ignitor is weak or bad it will not build up enough resistance for gas to come into the burner. One sign of this would be a "woosh" sound when it trys to light. If the ignitor is coming on but not lighting it is most likely the ignitor is bad. Should have a full glow. Also, if the ignitor looks whiteish in color this is a sign of it going bad. You can compare to the broil ignitor to be sure. Let me know what you find and let's solve it before you rate the solution.

Whirlpool oven wont light

The igniter has to heat the thermocouple to turn on the gas valve so if the igniter is glowing brightly either (or both) of those components could be at fault.

Whirlpool 465. The top range burners will not ignite. I can hear and smell the gas. The oven burner works fine. Do I need to replace an ignitor for the range?

The bake is seperate from the burner ignition system. You may need a new spark module for the top burners. All burners should spark at the same time even if you are only trying to lite one burner.

Oven Not Working

Your igitor mat be glowing but it is not generating the proper amps to ignite the gas. The proper solution is to replace the oven igniter

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...

Maytag gas oven doesn't heat, but oven's pilot light is on.

Get the oven checked out by a professional, if you have a gas leak you can easily blow up the entire house and you with it. I think you have a faulty gas valve based on what you wrote

Frigidaire gas range oven won't come on

the oven ignitor needs replacing, this is the part that makes everything works, it's a glow coil in side the oven, nest to the burner, that is the electronic pilot, when it goes bad the safety valve, the one that sends gas to the oven will not open to light the oven burner.
