The burners work fine but the oven gets to around 200 degrees and that's it. There is a strong gas odor while the oven is on also. Any help is appreciated. Thanks

Hi,

When you first start the oven the oven glow bar igniter should glow orange for about 45 seconds then the gas valve will open and the flame will start. If its taking much longer than 45 seconds then that's the bad parts is the oven glow bar igniter, and you can also smell gas when that goes bad too.

Here's the oven glow bar igniter for your model:
Glow Bar Igniter WP3186491


Time it to see how long it takes the gas to fire up after you turn the oven on and let us know.

I bought one locally being so close to Thanksgiving and it fixed the problem. 👍. Now I’ll have to buy another for the broiler and one for one of the burners. Thanks for your help.
