Gas oven will not light

I have an Admiral Gas oven with electric starter and the oven will not light. The stove burners light without a problem and so does the broiler. But the oven will not ignite. The electric starter light comes on but no gas seems to be coming out.

It first happened while I was preheating the oven. It seemed to take an extra-long time to heat up but it was still increasing in temperature. The next time I tried to use the oven it did not work.

Thanks for your help.

Chances are it is a hot surface igniter. Could be one of the control knobs not on proper setting also. Do you have any test meters. Do you know how to take an amp read or how do a continuity test?
