REmove bottom panel from stove. shut gas off for at LEAST 5 min. Longer is better. Then placel open flame above gas nozzle, slowly turn to ignite posiiton. After it is lit, wait 30 seconds and turn to on positon.
If by chance this model doens't have a knob for this, then turn gas valve off for 5 min, let fumes evaporate, light flame, place over nozzle, turn gas on.replace bottom oven panel slowly.

Hi, There is a glow igniter that has to glow and open the gas valve to ignite the flame.
Are you seeing any glow below the floor of the oven? Remove the floor on=f the oven and you will see the igniter. If you have a voltage meter, You can remove the ignitor from the manifold ans test it. Put your meter leads into the connection and turn the oven on, (ONLY long enough to see if you have 120V.
If there is voltage, replace the igniter. They can still glow but be bad. The igniter gets weak and will not open the gas valve. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

There is likely some kind of gas line blockage or valve problem. This is not a do-it-yourself fix. Call a repair person.

I tried to get a picture of the range with you model #, but I think the number is wrong. Maybe you could check it. However, if the oven isn't lighting you may need a new igniter. These are also called glow coils, when they get weak they glow orange and they need to be white hot to ignite the gas for you. Hope this helps.

If you have standing pilots, make sure the pilot for the oven/broiler is lit as well. When you turn the thermostat up to call for heat, you should see the pilot get larger. That larger pilot flame heats a hydraulic sensor and opens the main burner valve.
