The usual problem with these ovens is the oven burner itself. the burner will click 3 times and usually lights but after a few minutes shuts down and will no light again until you reset the control. If this is happening then try replacing the oven burner. It comes as one unit the burner assembly and electrode. Part # 8191123. If this doesn't work then it coould be your spark module unit. This is about twice the cost or more.
You may have a pilotless ignition.Check around door frames for model #plate. Also , open broiler door ,turn on oven and look inside . If you see an orange glow appear after awhile, that is the electronic igniter and you have an electronic ignition(no pilot).In this case the top burners use a spark ignition system.If you don,t hear clicking when you turn on a burner your ignition module might be bad. Easily fixed though.
the burners inside your oven by removing the access panel in the front
of the oven or by opening the broiling drawer, depending on your
if the pilot itself is lit, since some ovens have a small flame on the
pilot at all times that then grows and extends to the burner when the
oven is turned on. The lack of a pilot flame indicates the oven
thermostat is malfunctioning or there is a problem with the gas hose.
Check the pilot itself to see if it is clogged with debris or grease
that could be preventing the flame from staying lit.
if the pilot flame will grow if it is lit by turning on the thermostat.
If the pilot flame doesn't extend, the thermostat itself likely needs
replacement. If the flame is extending but the gas valve is not
opening, the safety valve could be dirty or defective. The flame should
be blue in color. A yellow flame indicates the pilot is dirty and is
not burning hot enough to get the main burner to ignite.
the burner on the top of the oven with a match if the igniter doesn't
appear to be effective. If it lights manually but will not light
automatically, the igniter is likely faulty. Do not do this if there is
a heavy smell of gas in the kitchen, since there could be a risk of a
fire. In that circumstance, turn the oven off, ventilate the room and
call a technician.
for any sounds of gas hissing or a clicking sound indicating the oven
is trying to turn on. If there is no response from the oven at all, the
gas may not be functioning properly and will need to be examined by a
technician for safety purposes
I have fix that problem before, the oven heat is soficating the top burners, you will have to adjust top burners with the oven on, so that they will light by them selfs.Or put a shield under the cook top section on the back, so that the heat will not come to the burners where they get the oxigen.
The oven pilot will need to be lit, On the bottom there is the oven safety valve, it has a red button on it, you must depress the button and hold it with the pilot lit for 60 seconds, when you release the button the pilot should stay lit and the oven will be ready for operation using the thermostat (knob). Please note: if the oven has set unused for some time you may need to hold the red button for a long time to bleed the air out of the lines. The pilots for the top burners are actually right beside each burner. You may need to turn these pilots on, they are controlled by small valves (small brass screws on the gas manifold where the gas valves and knobs are located, look between the knobs). These small screws/valves will open the gas flow to the pilots when turned counter clockwise. If you open these valves and the pilots still do not work, they will need to be replaced. Hope this helps
