May I please have an explanation for the term "hear Up"? I don't understand what you mean.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
It won't heat up.
Expert:  John replied 1 year ago.

In searching for information, I found a gas operated free standing range. Does this describe your range, and, if it does, is it the oven that's not heating up?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Gad operated Viking range. I provided the model number if that helps.

The oven burner igniter assembly is behind the kick panel, below the oven door. Open the kick panel cover by lifting up on it, and swinging it down. Turn the oven on, and check to see if you see or hear an electric sparking sound. Please let me know what you find.

Kick panel doesn't open.

I know from my experience, that it's supposed to swing open, on hinges at the bottom corners, after it's pushed upward from the bottom edge. If it won't lift up, and swing down from the top, you will need to find out why. There's no other way to access the igniter assembly.
