Lighting the oven

My top burners wouldn't go on and neither would the oven. I fixed the top part but am unsure how to tell if the oven will work or if i have to do something to it. Is there a pilot light in the oven, and if so where?

Re: lighting the oven

Control Lockout (on some models)
Your control will allow you to lock out the
touch pads so they cannot be activated when
touched or cleaning the glass panel.
To lock the controls:
Touch the 9 and 0 touch pads at the
same time for 3 seconds until the
control beeps twice. The display will
show LOC continuously and the time
of day if not blacked out.
NOTE: All cooking and timing functions will be
cancelled when locking out the control.
To unlock the control, touch the
9 and 0 touch pads at the same time
for 3 seconds until the control beeps
twice, and LOC will be removed from
the display.
NOTE: Some models have a Control Lockout
pad. Touch and hold it for 3 seconds to
Gas/Control Lockout (on some models)
Your control will allow you to lock out the
surface burners, oven burners and control
panel so they cannot be activated.
To lock/unlock the controls:
Turn all surface burners off.
Touch and hold the Gas/Control
Lockout pad for 3 seconds until the
display shows LOC ON.
To unlock the control, touch and hold the
Gas/Control Lockout pad for 3 seconds
until the display shows LOC OFF.
When this feature is on and the touch pads
are touched, the control will beep and the
display will show LOC ON.
 The control lockout mode affects all
controls. No controls will work when this
feature is activated.
 The adjustment will be retained in memory
after a power failure.

Whirlpool WFG361LVS2 oven. Broiler and burners ignite but oven will not. I can hear gas and the igniter sparks but will never light the oven.

get someone to hold a long gas match near the main burner when you try the oven . If it lights then I would suspect the igniter. even tho you can hear it snapping .

Our burners light but when you turn the oven on you can smell gas. Can you tell me what is wrong

most of these will have the oven bake ignitor become weak and not ignite the gas when turned on.
you should see the bake ignitor try to glow orange but the gas will not lit to the burner.
without a digital meter to read the current, should be 3.2-3.5 amps then you wont know if the ignitor is weak.
you could try to just replace it and see if that fixes you trouble.

Top burners often wont light if oven is already lit

I have fix that problem before, the oven heat is soficating the top burners, you will have to adjust top burners with the oven on, so that they will light by them selfs.Or put a shield under the cook top section on the back, so that the heat will not come to the burners where they get the oxigen.

Hello, I have a Frigidaire freestanding crown series gas range that has two problems. The most important being that the oven does not light. The stovetop lights, except one burner that you hav to light...

I figured it was the ignitor given the burners work fine and I could smell gas from the oven when I would try to turn it on. So I found a local parts store and bought the replacement ignitor. I cut the wires of the old ignitor close to the ceramic and spliced the new one on with porcelain nuts and voila my oven now works again!

The baking part of the oven does not work

joseph, you should hear a sparking when the ignitor is functioning. Very often, the ignitor for all burners is the same unit. You can try to light the burner when you first turn on the unit. If it lights, then find out what is going on. It is possible that the gap is damaged or dirty.
