Hello bungalowman. Welcome to the Gas Appliances topic and the Do-It-Yourself Web Site.

Be sure all oven controls are set correctly first.

Most likely the HSI (Hot Surface Igniter) isn't glowing or isn't glowing HOT enough to ignite gas. Replacing the HSI (glow igniter) should resolve the problem.

Read the sticky note. Link below.

Retail appliance parts dealers can also help determine what the possible problem may be also. They will need the make, model an serial numbers. Appliance parts dealers are an excellent source for original replacement parts. Dealers are listed in the phone book under appliances.

"Be sure the electrical power and the gas supply to the appliance is turned off, before attempting any repairs. Always check for gas leaks whenever the appliance is moved and/or a repair includes any connection of a gas part."
