Customer Question

I have an AMANA gas range, mdl ARG7303, S/N(###) ###-#### When lighting the oven, there is a 5 minute or so delay at which time I hear a WHOOOM sound as it finally lights. My wife said the the other day it never did light after 15 minutes and shut it off. She said there wasn't a smell of gas, either. The next night I slammed the door a few times and rattled the heating element inside the oven near the broiler burner with my fist, and closed the door. After 2-3 minutes, it went WHOOM again and heated up. Something is obviously wrong. I could use some advise. thank you. Don
