All of the items you mention that do work, are 120 volt items.
All the items that do NOT work are 220 volt items.
Sounds like you have a voltage problem, you will need to use a meter to check if you have 220 volts a/c to the outlet the stove plugs into. Take care when doing the following, you will be around live voltage and could get hurt. If you are uncomfortable working with a live circuit best to call someone in to do it for you. Check for 220v at the outlet for the stove (where the stove plugs into), if you have it there, go to where the cord attaches to the stove and check at that point. You should have either a 3 or 4 wire cord on the stove, On the rear of the stove there is a terminal block that the cord is fastened to. Between RED and BLACK you should have 220v, between RED and WHITE and BLACK and WHITE you should see 120v. Another thing to check is that the nuts holding the wires from the cord to the terminal block on the stove are turned down tight. A loose connection there will give you the same problem you have as well.

You need a new mother-board.
I had the same issue, it overheated my kitchen in a matter of minutes. If I didn't turn off the circuit-breaker, I probably would have had a fire - the heat being emitted was intense. The cost is running around $300. with tax and delivery. I'm not sure if I want to repair or purchase a new oven.

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.

First you will need to verify if the hot surface igniter is coming on when the oven thermostat is in demand. When the thermostat is turned on for the oven you should see the igniter start to glow. You may need to remove the bottom oven panel to be able to see it in action. If it starts to glow then take a wrench and tap the gas control valve located at the back of the oven in the broiler/storage compartment on the bottom of the range. If you tap the valve and the burner comes on then shut off the oven completely and back on several times and make sure it is working. If it does you may have solved the problem. If the burner does not come back on and you have to tap it again then the gas valve is sticking either due to a bad valve or weak igniter. If the igniter does not glow then the igniter could be bad. You would need to verify the igniter is getting voltage. Then the igniter can be tested with a ohm meter. A good reading usually is between 500 to 700 ohms. The hot surface igniter cang get a crack in it causing it to stop working.

Testimonial: "This was helpful information, but I'm not sure what the igniter looks like. Nothing glowed so I'm assuming the igniter is bad."
