Oven,broiler won't light

The igniter is the most commonly defective part for a gas oven that won't turn on. The igniter has two main functions. First, the igniter draws electrical current through the oven safety valve to open it. Second, the igniter gets hot enough to glow and ignite the gas in the burner assembly. If the igniter gets weak, it will fail to open the safety valve correctly. If the valve does not open, the oven will not heat. To determine if the igniter is defective, observe the igniter when the oven is on. If the igniter glows for more than 90 seconds without igniting the gas flame, this indicates that the igniter is too weak to open the valve. If the igniter is weak, replace it. If the igniter does not glow at all, use a multimeter to test the igniter for continuity. If the igniter does not have continuity, replace it.

Kenmore elite stove model #7909912949B. Can get anything to work on oven. Light comes one. Nothing else in the enter panel. Top burners work.

Can you enter the oven temp and press start on the control panel? Do you hear it click on, but it just does not get hot? Try turning on the broiler and see if the broiler gets hot.
