Hello and sorry to hear about your problem.
It sounds like your oven glow rod, is defective. This is the electronic pilot lite for the unit.

THIS IS A GAS PRODUCT, INCORRECT REPAIR CAN CAUSE A EXPLOSION, AND DEATH CAN OCCUR. IF YOU DO HAVE THE PROPER TOOLS SUCH AS MANOMETER AND LEAK DETECTORS, I SUGGEST YOU CONTACT A SERVICE COMPANY

Oven--


Is the oven working now? test to see if the broiler is working too....if broiler working and oven not you need to replace the ignitor http://www.repairclinic.com/SSPartDetail.aspx?s=t-fgf316-%3d%3di12872&PartID=12872 normally when an igniter gets old it will take a little longer to ignite the gas hence the gas smell.

Oven does not heat. Broiler and stove work. NO gas smell.


could be the oven thermostat, get a plumber/heating engineer out, but make sure you can trust him, cause he could try and say u need a new cooker when it MIGHT only be a new oven thermostat.

Oven and Broiler not working


The gas supply valve to the oven/broiler is the likely culprit. It is a separate valve from the stovetop. I've had the same problems and had to replace mine twice now. They are very expensive, (about 100 dollars) considering the cost of the whole stove. It is located
inside the broiler drawer on the very back wall.

If both the broiler ignitor and the bake ignitor are not working it is unlikely they are both bad. You may have another problem. Need to check voltage to the ignitors to be sure.

Yes, it could very well be an igniter. The igniter can still glow and not work. The reason being that the igniter (depending on type) needs to produce .25 to .37 amps in order for the gas valve to open. If this potential is never reached, the igniter will glow, but gas will never flow. Or, gas will eventually flow for a weak (slow) igniter and will take forever to ignite. Which could be the reason for your low bake temperature. The burner does not stay lit all the time during the bake cycle. It will cycle on and off as needed to maintain the oven temperature. If the igniter is taking a long time to relight the burner, it could take a long time to heat. The broiler has a separate igniter and probably doesn't get used as often as the bake igniter. You can test the theory by swapping the igniter between the bake and broil burners and see if the problem moves to the broiler. Make sure you secure power to the range BEFORE attempting to remove the igniter, however. You should not have to turn off the gas to do this. Everything should be accessible through the oven door and broiler. I tell you this, because a new igniter (depending on the type you have) can run as much as $100. It will probably be worth the effort just to be sure. I hope this helps you.
