Question about Kenmore 46133 Stainless Steel Dual Fuel (Electric and Gas) Kitchen Range
The oven does not seem to be cooking anything from the bottom up
SOURCE: Preheat taking long time
If your oven has the hidden bake element then it is probably working properly. A standard oven with an exposed bake element will usually take about 12-15 minutes to preheat. The hidden element models take a little longer but they usually heat a little more evenly.
Post back if you have any more questions.

check inside the stove for some kind of fuse , also check with a multimeter set to OHMS the circuit breaker of the stove to see if theres continuity . hope it helps

A gas oven will have some built in safety devices. Assuming that you have an electric pilot light sparking device, anything in the pilot light circuit could cause your problem
The oven does not "want" to turn the gas on unless there is an operating pilot system.
Since you never smell gas, but gas is available, then something in the pilot light circuit sounds like the culprit.
It could be as simple as carbon build up on the igniter or an internal fusing mechanism.
If you can get into the oven to the igniter, you could try cleaning the unit with a plastic scrunge.
I'm going to guess that this is not going to respond well to 'home grown' measures and that it will require replacement of parts.
Perhaps it is time to bite the bullet and call in repair......
