My Amana gas range will not light when turning on the oven. The boiler lights fine which is a overhead boiler. I removed the cover that goes over the gas tubes and noticed the igniter glows but nothing else happens. Also the two rear stove top burners will not light either with the electric igniter. I hear the igniter clicking but see no spark.

More often than not a weak ignitor not drawing enough current to open the gas valve. Your model has used 2 different ignitors....appears one long and one short version.

Also the two rear stove top burners will not light either with the electric igniter.
Broken/cracked electrode, cut, frayed or chewed on wire between the spark module and electrode or bad spark module.
