If you hear a loud bang the SECOND time you try to light an oven, it means you've just had a small explosion when the gas from the FIRST try ignited outside the heating tube. I would have a professional check your oven before using it again.
if you hear a big bang, and it wont light right away, it is normaly the ignitor thats going bad in oven. the ignitor has to get very hot to ignite the gas. orange in color. if this is the problem be very carefull not to bump the new ignitor on any thing, if you replace it yourself.I had the same problem last year,when trying to light oven it blew the door part way open because the ignitor was bad and the build up of gas caused this.
There may be a gas shutoff on the range gas supply. If so,turn it on. If it is already on,turn on a surface burner and use a match ti light it. It will take several minutes for the air to purge from a system once gas supply has been restored.
Relighting Your Furnace's Pilot Light
Turn off the gas at the main valve at your utility box
Wait five to ten minutes for gas fumes to waft away
Get a long match—yes, a fireplace match, not a standard match
Set the gas valve on your furnace to "pilot"
Press the red button as you hold the match to the pilot valve
Keep pressing the red button for 30-60 seconds so the pilot can heat the
thermocouple. Release the button and see if the pilot remains lit
If pilot goes out, wait five to ten minutes and repeat the process
Once the pilot stays lit, turn the main gas valve back on
If the pilot light continues to go out, call a technician, who may need
to adjust or replace your thermocouple or adjust your pilot
