Question about Kitchen Ranges
Our gas oven has not worked in over a year. The electric panel was malfunctioning. The burners work fine. We just had some work done and had to turn off the radiators and manually fill the boiler and bleed the radiators. We turned the heat on this morning and suddenly, there's a loud humming in the gas line to the stove, and the electric panel works and allows us to light the oven. But what is the humming in the gas line? Why does gas to the heating system cause a humming sound in the gas line to the stove? And why does the oven suddenly work now?! Lol
The hum may be a b ad regulator in the stove. Pull stove out and see if regulator is humming. It's where the gas line connects to stove.
Maybe the power was interupted to the stove which may have reset power to control board.

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......

IF THIS IS A NEW STOVE THERE IS A VALVE IF YOU PULL OUT THE LOWER DRAWER AND LOOK WITH A FLASH LIGHT YOU WILL SEE A VALVE AT THE REAR OF THE STOVEAT THE LOWER LEFT OF THE VALVE THERE IS A TINY LITTLE HANDLE WHICH OPENS THE GAS TO THE OVEN FLIP THE LITTLE LEVER SO IT IS IN THE OPEN POSSITION, THERE ARE NO MARKS SAYING OPEN OR CLOSED AND THE LEVER IS VERY HARD TO SEE
TRY THIS AND SEE IF THE OVEN STARTS WORKING
