Hello momof46 and Welcome to the Do It Yourself Web Site and my Gas Appliances topic.

Cannot say I have ver encounter such conditions. So cold oven would not ignite. Only possible first attempt solution is to replace the ignitor and hope for the best.

Retail parts dealers and appliances parts stores can also help determine what the possible problem may be based upon that specific brand and model. Bring the make, model and serial numbers. Dealers and appliances parts stores are listed in the phone book.

Additional Suggestions:
Read the manufacturers online web site for product information, problem possibilities, causes, solving methods, part locations, disassembly, reassembly methods, repair procedures, pictorials, schematics, repair and or owners manuals which may be available online.

Cautionary Note:
Before attempting any repairs, be sure to unplug the appliance from the wall receptacle power source first.
