Hi my name is Tim, I will try and help you with your issue. Most oven no heats are due to a faulty igniter, the first thing to do is check the igniter does it glow? If it glows but doesn't ignite the gas it's a weak igniter, if it doesn't glow check for cracks or burn marks on the igniter itself, the other 2 components that could be at fault are th electronic control and the gas valve but more often then not it's just the igniter and replacing it will solve your issue. Most people do not have a volt ohm meter but if you do you can check for power to the igniter with that. The igniter is bolted to the burner at the bottom of the oven underneath the bottom panel inside the oven.

Item 218 is the igniter.
