I recently purchased a new Gallery series oven and some of the gas burners are either taking a long time to light or not lighting at all. You can see the igniter has flame when it's clicking along and you can smell gas, but it's not igniting. Hope you can help,

Re: the gas burner is not lighting
You may have an issue with not getting enough gas. Also it could be that the igniters are bad. Have a local repairman check it out, you dont want to mess around with a gas system without knowing what your doing just for safety sake.

Since you just received your unit recently, let's try
resetting the range. This can be done by either unplugging it or flipping the household
circuit breaker to the off position. It is important to wait approximately ten
minutes and then turn the range on. If resetting the power does not correct the
issue, your appliance could possibly have a faulty burner or a potential wiring
failure to the burner. At this point, I would highly recommend contacting or
visiting the manufacturer website to find a service provide near you and to
verify warranty information. If there is anything else that I can help you
with, please feel free to reconnect!
If your oven still uses a pilot light, it also probably has a thermocouple positioned in the pilot's flame path to detect whether if is safe to turn on the main burner.
When the thermocouple fails, the oven thinks the pilot light is not lit and will not let gas flow to the primary burners.
The part isn't costly (should be <$20 US) but replacing it may require some expensive labor.
Most problems with gas ranges have to do with the flame—either it isn't quite right or it's nonexistent. Many new gas ranges have "electronic ignition," a spark igniter that starts the flame as gas flows through the burnersf, when you turn on a burner, it fails to spark but you hear sparking at other burners, the igniter or the burner switch probably needs replacement by an appliance repairperson. If your range has a pilot light, be sure the pilot light is lit. have nice time..!! arte the solution!!
first off use a BBQ match and try to light one burner manually with the match. if it lights then the next thing to do is physically move the ignighter closer to the burner plate. if not then you should check the gas line as far into the stove as possible. and if you still dont have a flame then its either time (for the tool savey) to tear into it checking all gas lines and valves to see if they are open or you should call the repair man. sorry i couldnt be of more help
Pilotless ignition means that a hot surface ignitor lights the oven burner. It does take a little bit of time to light the burner. Maybe 30 seconds. If you want to make sure it lights take the bottom panel out from the oven and observe the hot surface glow and the burners light. No real danger as the gas valve will only open after the hot surface ignitor has satisfied the gas valve. Let me know how it goes. ken
