Question help with old Kenmore gas oven

I have an older model Kenmore pilot free ignition, continuous self cleaning oven, model # 103.7287810. All four of the burners on the stove work fine, the oven does not. When I turn the oven on I do not smell any gas. I tried to unplug & replug it in. I made an attempt at relighting the pilot but it does not light. Any suggestions?

Being your range is "pilot free" there is no pilot to relight in the oven. Your oven burner is lit from a hot surface igniter. It is common for these to go bad and need replacing.
