My mom and i recently bought this used off craigslist.
currently i have the oven governor valve to disable gas getting to oven.
only using top part of stove.
could someone please take a look at a video i made and tell me what my problem might be?
im thinking it might be that the gas pressure valve regulator might need adjusted to let more gas flow to oven?

here is the video

Sorry, too dark and too much reflection for me to see anything. Can you tell me exactly what it's doing?

Did you watch the whole video? I also have audio (me talking) while video is playing.

It looks to me like there isnt enough gas getting to the burner therefore the oven is not reaching correct temperature

There is usually only one regulator that regulates the gas to alll the burners. If it was malfunctioning other burners would usually show some affect as well. There's not usually any adjustments that can be made to it except maybe between NG and LP.

I have never worked on an LG gas range and don't have access to technical information on it so I'm not certain of its exact functioning. If the convection burner is not getting as much gas as it is suppose to, that burner's gas valve may not be opening fully. That could be due to a 'weak' ignitor or less likely, possibly a problem with that burner's gas valve.

How is the broil burner functioning?

Than someone might need to look into the possibility of a failing ignitor for that burner. If that wasn't it, a failing oven gas valve (not the 'Governor' aka regulator - which would usually affect all burners).

I'm not sure if you'd have the necessary tools to actually test it. Such ignitors should usually draw 3.2 - 3.6 amps when fully glowing.
