Question about Kitchen Ranges
There may be air in the line after restoring the propane. Hopefully it will get back up after bleeding for a few minutes. if not there could be a problem with the regulator.

The most common reason a gas oven won't heat is a bad igniter. It is located near the valve and burner under the oven bottom. You can usually see it glow orange just before the fire lights. Most GE ranges take a cylindrical igniter part #WB2X9154 or #WB13K21 rectangular igniter.

It's a good possibility. The broiler and oven use separate igniters. So, if the broiler works, you don't have a gas problem. The surface igniters use an electrode via a spark module, so its a completely different ignition source.
No ignition in the oven is most commonly attributed to an oven igniter that is going bad. As these igniters age, they become weak and require replacement. The following link explains some theory behind how they work and how to replace one:
Replacements parts can be purchased at any of the following web sites:
Prices vary, so shop and compare.
NOTE: If the replacement igniter comes with a connector plug that does not match the one on your range, you will be instructed to cut the old connector plug off and splice the wires together using a set of ceramic wire lugs that are included in the replacement kit. DO NOT attempt to use standard wires lugs. They will melt due to the extreme heat in an oven. The ceramic lugs and the wires on the igniter are heat resistant.
If you have any questions about this repair, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

Hello, Thank You for using FixYa. I will be helping you today.Just because the ignitor glows does not mean its good..switch the two around and see if the oven comes on. They still glow even when they start to go bad.
Thank You and please rate my answer if it was helpful..
