I own a Tappan Gas Range/Oven that wont ignite and there isnt

Resolved Question:

I own a Tappan Gas Range/Oven that won't ignite and there isn't a gas smell either. It is Model #30276100/06 Serial #DF43300566. The burners on top work fine, including the igniters. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

You'll need to see if the bake ignitor is getting power when set to bake. If it is getting voltage but not glowing the bake ignitor needs to be replaced, pn(NNN) NNN-NNNNedited>Accurate Appliance Service39722.568230787

Would that cause the gas not to flow as well? We had recently moved the stove and was wondering if there was a safety that disabled the gas flow as well if you moved it.

The ignitor works in tandem with the safety valve to send gas to the burner where it then gets lit by the glowing ignitor. No glow, no gas.
