oven will not light

I have an old Kenmore gas stove with pilot free igniter. The stove top works great but the ovens will not light and i do not hear the ticking noise. I know this can be fixed I just have not idea how to start

Thanks for you help

If your range is of the standard variety, the oven will not click as the top burner do. Chances are the oven will have a hot surface igniter. Posting the model number may help determine this.

If it does have a hot surface igniter, I recommend reading this sticky, http://forum.doityourself.com/showthread.php?t=159808 in which post number five will explain the specifics of this type of ignition system.
