SOURCE: Amana oven gas leak issue
if you only get a gas smell when you turn on the oven then it is not likely you have a gas leak- the ignitor resistance drops as it heats up and when it drops low enough the main gas valve opens and the gas ignites from the hot ignitor. If however you have a gas smell all the time and have to shut off the main gas valve (at the flex line) then you have a problem. Not sure where you are located but here in the bay area (CA) our local utility company will come out and do a leak check for you gratis. As for the burners not lighting- do you see a spark at the burner you are trying to light? If so, the burner is dirty. If you don't here a clicking sound when you turn the know the igniter switch is probably bad.

I had a similar problem with my Kenmore and it was the Igniter. Cost me about $85.00 for a new one. Sometime on the back of the range there is a little pocket where sometimes a schematic is there and ( I don't know about your Frigidaire) but with my Kenmore it gave troubleshooting info that was very helpful in determining the problem.

The following link explains step-by-step how to replace an igniter in a gas range:
The replacement process is pretty standard with nearly all gas ranges. You can go to appliancepartspros.com for reference drawings to assist you as well. The oven burner assemblies are listed under the "Cavity" section.
If you have not purchased an igniter yet, the part number is AP4041245. If the connector plug does not match, there should be instructions that direct you to splice the wires using ceramic wire lugs. DO NOT use standard wire lugs. They will melt due to the high heat in the oven. The wires and connectors on these oven igniters are heat resistant. If ceramic lugs are not included with the igniter, you may have to purchase them separately. The part number is AP3440631.
This is a fairly simple repair, but if you have questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.
