Burners and oven wont get hot and light wont come on
When I turn the burner control to the on position the lights will display and quickly go off. I can then adjust the clock and set oven temperature but the temperature does not increase in the oven and none of the burners are working. When I turn the burner control to the off position, everything goes blank including the clock. The burner seems to act as if it is a on/off button. What's the problem and or solution?

gas range oven may prove useful for cooking and baking, they may fail
to ignite if they aren't properly maintained and set up. Lighting a gas
range often involves simply turning a knob; however, blockages from food
particles and debris caught in the burners, improper burner cap
installation and gas supply are common problems that interfere with your
gas range oven's performance. A few troubleshooting guidelines may
solve these problems safely.
Check you have gas in your tank if your gas range oven won't heat. Contact your gas supplier if you've run out of gas.
Clean the burners if you have gas but your burners still
won't ignite. To clean the burners, lift the burner caps
Inspect the small vertical holes on the side of your burners
for dirt, food and debris. The gas won't ignite if they are clogged.
Scrape dirt, debris and food from the vertical holes using a pointy
object such as a toothpick or paperclip.
Reinstall the burner caps properly. If they are tilted or
wobbly, the gas may not ignite. Install the caps on the right burners.
Some burners are smaller than others, so match the caps to the
Move the burner knob to the "Lite" position and wait for the
gas to ignite. If it ignites, rotate the knob to your desired setting.
If it doesn't ignite, contact a qualified appliance technician.
The clock display works on 120 volts but the burners and oven require 240 volts. I would check the breaker or the receptacle to see if they're bad.They may be supplying only 120 volts. One more less common problem could be the terminal block on the range where the power comes in. Very rarely they will melt. BE SURE TO UNPLUG THE RANGE if you have to check the terminal block. Hope this helps.
The model number given is for a wall oven so I'm a little confused about the question. If you have burners on a range top as stated in the question, the on light for the burners is controlled by each individual switch. One of the switches has a stuck contact that is keeping the light on. You would have to determine which switch is stuck and replace that switch. Once that switch is replaced your problem will be solved.
Bakers Pride used several different safety valves over the years. If your oven has a pilot valve that has a beige know that you hold in and turn to light the pilot, then after it lights you need to turn the beige know another half round to the "on" setting. If you push in a red button to light the pilot, it may not be getting enough heat on the thermocouple where the pilot flame should be heating it up. Be sure the main gas valve on the front of the oven is turned to the on position also. On some models the pilot will light with the main gas valve in the off position. If you look at the pilot flame while it is burning, make sure that it is hitting the pencil sized thermopile enough to make it glow red. If not bend it slightly to improve the heating.
If the burners and oven light are working, then you have power coming in. It's most likely a defective EOC. If you haven't tried turning off the circuit breaker for 5-10 mins to reset any glitch associated with a surge or spike, do so. If this doesn't reset the control, the EOC will need to be replaced.
If your oven still uses a pilot light, it also probably has a thermocouple positioned in the pilot's flame path to detect whether if is safe to turn on the main burner.
When the thermocouple fails, the oven thinks the pilot light is not lit and will not let gas flow to the primary burners.
The part isn't costly (should be <$20 US) but replacing it may require some expensive labor.
You can raise the top lid of the stove to light the pilot lights for the top burners. The oven is controlled by a electric glowbar ignitor. Make sure the cord is plugged into a electrical outlet. If it is and the oven does not work the glowbar ignitor must be replaced.
Pilotless ignition means that a hot surface ignitor lights the oven burner. It does take a little bit of time to light the burner. Maybe 30 seconds. If you want to make sure it lights take the bottom panel out from the oven and observe the hot surface glow and the burners light. No real danger as the gas valve will only open after the hot surface ignitor has satisfied the gas valve. Let me know how it goes. ken
