Whirlpool gold accubake oven won't re-ignite

Hello, I have an intermittent problem with my Whirlpool Gold Accubake oven (Model #: GS440LEMQ). During the normal course of baking the oven will obviously re-light many times to maintain the set temperature. I have a situation where sometimes the oven will begin to lose heat and never re-light. I can tell when this is about to happen because I'll see the "HEAT" indicator come on, then I'll hear the ignitor start clicking along with the gas coming on. After about 5 clicks, the gas shuts off. After a couple of minutes, it will cycle through and try again. Eventually, it will stop cycling throught the ignition process and just give up completely. At this point, I hit "CANCEL" and wait about 15 mins. to turn on the oven again.

When everything is working, I'll only hear 1 or 2 clicks and then the gas continues to flow (based on the "hissing" sound). It almost seems like the oven realizes that its not getting a good ignition, so it gives up completely.
The rangetop works fine.
Any help would be appreciated...Thanks.

    I just had the same problem with mine.Different model( whirlpool though),but doing the exact same thing.Here's what I did & it worked:

    Take the inside bottom cover off.There are 2 screws toward the back of the oven.Next,take the burner cover off.2 screws up front.

    Now you'll see the burner & ignitor.Turn on the oven.Watch the burner holes nearest the ignitor.If any are clogged,they won't ignite or will only partially ignite.My stove isn't that old & just one was partially clogged,but I cleaned it out,& everything works perfect.Another words, the gas is having trouble getting to the spark to ignite & these stoves are made to shut down after a few seconds( I think 4) of the way,I used a small reamer that is used to clean the tips on welding torches.I would be careful not to make the hole bigger than it's suppose to be or you'll have a bigger flame there than the rest & uneven heat.

    This oven came with the house I bought and the previous owner said she never had a problem but everytime I try to bake something for a long period of time - it is okay for a while then it turns off. I had this problem with a turkey and when I went to baste it, the oven was barely warm but the panel showed heat on and temperature at 350 degrees. When I first turn the oven on it sounds like the gas is coming on every so often which seems odd to me but I was told that is how this type of oven works. Another problem I have found is that foods don't seem to brown as well as in other gas ovens I have owned. It is very frustrating when you are cooking a meal and the food should be ready and isn't. At this point I would not recommend this oven to anyone!!
