Gas oven Lights, but only makes pilot flame?

Gas Powered stove:

Caloric Heritage series.
Electronic Ignition.


I noticed the other day, when I try to turn on the oven, it clicks about 10 times. Never had to do that before.

Also, the oven never gets warm, and I can not hear the flames like I used to.

I pulled the bottom pan out to take a look, and I see there is a small pilot-type flame that emerges, but that is about it. No flames come out of the burner as I am assuming should happen.

I power-cycled the stove (removed fuse), but no change.

The top 4 heating elements on stovetop work fine.

Curious on what steps I should try next?

I found a similar thread digging around, same type of stove and issue, but there was no follow up to determine what was helpful.

Wow..... Caloric. A bit before my time and some were problems.
I remember some family members having them.

Just to confirm..... that pilot only lights when you turn the oven on..... correct ?
Can you find me a model number for that range ?

I would doubt the flame is sensed electronically. More likely a thermocouple.

Yes, you can see the sparks when the ticking sound happens. Then the little blue flame starts, but that's as good as it gets. No real heat.

I am not sure where to look for the model #, but I'll take a further examination tomorrow evening maybe.

If it has a drawer..... it may be just above the top.

Maybe another picture..... no pilot light..... but closer to the pilot area.
When you pull the drawer out..... there may be part of the gas valve system in the back.
