Greetings, Having an issue with my Kenmore gas range.... when the oven is preheating, the cooktop burners will not ignite..... they spark, but no ignition... once the oven is at temp, the burners will then light. this sounds like a gas pressure, or volume issue to me, but I do not know. can anyone offer some insight into this?

That's exactly what it sounds like to me also. Call the gas company to check your pressure. If it checks good replace the regulator.
