Try testing your igniter. It shows you on line how to. I am a 53 yr old woman and ordered the part and put it in myself. My oven is gas & electric. 20 yr old Roper.

Thank you! I called a local repair person and he talked me through resetting it. Remarkably simple!

I just took a little wire brush and gently cleaned off the area around the ignition rail just above the pilot light (located on the inside back lower portion of the oven). It was pretty congested and 5 minutes later my oven was working like a champ and it was back to baking my special baked brownies, LOL.. I hoped this helped
