Red face Gas Oven Not Lighting, No "Click"

My 3 year old Whirlpool oven is not lighting. The gas burners work fine and the electrical display works. When we try to turn on the oven, we can change the electrical display, but nothing happens in the oven. No "click" of ignition. Don't know if that means there's no ignition or no gas supply. Any ideas?

Welcome to the forums.

Some ovens make a click and some don't. I don't know which ones do what. They all have control relays. Some are louder than others. If you normally hear a click before the oven lights and you don't now..... that would indicate a control board problem. If you don't normally hear a click then you probably have a defective bake igniter.

If it's a control board problem.... it can sometimes be reset by un-plugging the range or disconnecting the power for a few minutes. If you are at the point of checking the igniter..... you will need an ohmmeter to check for resistance. This range needs to be unplugged when testing.
