Oven and broiler won't light, no gas smell, but stovetop works still

On my oven, neither the oven or broiler will light. When I try to start them, I don't hear any clicking from the oven ignitor, but I do hear two thuds from the broiler, but never a gas smell. The stovetop still works. Any ideas what I could check? Strikes me as odd that I wouldn't smell any gas after failed starts from both.

Have looked at the regulator in the rear of the range, may have tripped the isolation lever. That will shut off gas to oven/broiler but leave top burners with gas.

Is that something that's just on the back of the oven, or do I have to take it apart?
