Our stove does not work this morning. Light are on, ignighters

Customer Question

Our stove does not work this morning. Light are on, ignighters work. But there appears to be no gas going to it. Other gas appliances appear to be fine. Anything else I can check to figure out why it isn't going?

Hello. Thank you for choosing Just Answer. I will be helping you with your question today. Does broil work?
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
No. The pilot for it does on. But there is no gas being allowed to any part of the stove.
Expert:  Appliance Man replied 6 years ago.
Yes you need to replace the igniter. If the igniter doesn't get hot and draw 3.2 amps it wont open the gas valve. This is a safety feature so it doesnt leak gas.

But why wouldn't the range top work then?
Expert:  Appliance Man replied 6 years ago.
What brand is this? Do you have the model #?
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
MayTag. Built In. Is model number necessary?
Expert:  Appliance Man replied 6 years ago.
No. I guess you need to disconnect the gas line to the oven and make sure you have gas to it. If that is ok then you will need to replace the regulator.

Do some maytag stoves have safety locks that come on to prevent gas issues? If so, Is there a place I should look to do a reset?
Expert:  Appliance Man replied 6 years ago.
There is no reset or safety lock outs.
