Remove the bottom plate in the oven and the burner manifold plate. Get to the electrode and clean it with a wire brush or fine sand paper. The spark is not jumping across the tip. There is a small tip on the shield around the electrode rod if it does not jump across there it will not light. Clean it and try it and it should work for today then replace the electrode.

It Is sparking just fine. I lack gas. The forward half of the burner I can light It will burn for 3 or 4 seconds and go out. I have no gas to the rear section of the burner tube for the ignitor to ignite.

Then the gas valve would be bad on the unit and would need to be replaced or the orifice for the manifold could be partially plugged up.

OK, so how do I test the gas valve? As far as gas valve are you taking about the regulator?
Appliance Technician: Appliance Guru, Owner and Technician replied 3 months ago

Do you have a volt meter and do you know how to use it?

Disconnect the two wires to the valve and check across the valve terminals for continuity.
