greg, sounds like your needle valve is not seated. Remove the bottom drawer. Look back to the base of the burner where the shutter air adjustment is. Right under there is the valve which should have a 1/2 inch or 7/16 nut. (I Forgot what size). Turn this nut clockwise until the flame is adjusted to the correct size, should be a nice blue flame. The nut maybe hard to turn because you are seating the needle. Catriver..post back

Sounds like the oven ignitor has become too weak and needs replaced. When power is applied to an ignitor it builds up resistance in order for the gas valve to open and let gas flow to the burner. When they become weak this will not happen. If you notice a whiteish color on the ignitor or it doesn't have a strong full glow that is a sign of it going bad.

The manifold needs to be cleaned and adjusted could have rust etc in it Not a good thing to do yourself unless you know what you are doing
