When that happens you need to replace the oven ignitor on the unit. Turn the oven on and then open the broiler drawer. If the glow ignitor is getting voltage it will glow unless it is broken. If is weak, it will glow but it will not pull enough current to open the gas valve. They typically have to draw 3.2-3.6 amps for a square style one or 2.2-2.8 amps for a round style one. If they do not draw enough they will never open the gas valve or take a long long time to open them. The ignitors are pretty easy to change out, just 2 screws and two wires to either plug in or splice together. Here is a video to assist.
