Re: oven not always working
MOre than likely your igniter is getting weak. If it doesnt pull enough amperage. it shouldnt let gas into the oven. If it is letting in gas and not igniting, I would suggest a new igniter and a new safety valve. Hope this helps!

You will need to look and see if the igniter is glowing a bright red. If it is weak, the oven will not light. Here is the igniter if you need to order it. Also check and make sure your getting 3.2-3.6 volts AC to the valve.
Lets take the oven problem first. Sounds like you have a Hot Surface Ignitor problem. This is the device that glows and lights the burner. You can buy a universal ignitor at most appliance or heating and air conditioning supply houses. Note carefully how the old one is mounted. You may have to make some adjustments to mount the new ignitor, but it MUST be close to the gas burner like the old one! You don't smell gas because the gas valve will not open until the ignitor is hot. All ignitors work with the same voltage, so simply connect the new wires to the old ones.
I'm not certain if you have a standing pilot for the stove top burners or electronic ignition. Remove the top panel to check. If you have a gas pilot, relight it. If electronic ignition, clean the ignitors. If that does not solve the problem you may have to call a technician, as these systems can be complex.
yes replace the lower oven ig nighter you can do this from inside the oven pull the racks out then locate two screws in the bottom oven pan take the out pull the bottom plate then pull the flame spredder pan and you will see the glow bar replace that most common for you compliant
