Hello, and thank you for using this service. I'll be helping you with your problem today.

Have you tried both bake and broil? Do either work? Also, does your cooktop still work?

no bake no broil either
This model has a very complex system with a DSI board (direct spark ignition board) which reads the gas valve coils and checks the resistance to make sure everything is good with the valve. This board also serves other functions like sends out the actual spark to light all the burners and cuts out the gas if it doesn’t detect the flame has ignited. If the system is working properly the bake and the broil will click three times when you turn the oven on. If you only hear one or two clicks, you have a bad DSI board or a bad gas valve. There are 3 terminals on the gas valve so you need to check the resistance from the top terminal to the middle terminal, and the middle terminal to the bottom terminal. You should get a reading of approximately 215 ohms. If you don’t get a reading within 10% of that number, you need to replace the valve because even though only one coil may be bad, the DSI board will stop all oven function as soon as it detects there is a problem with one of the coils.

is this board easy to swap out
yes it is, but it's rarely the DSI board---it's almost always the valve.

i should change valve first
If you don't have a multimeter to test the valve, then yes.
