My pilot light is on in the oven but the oven will not come on. What part to I probably need.

BFLYNN27 for Model Number Whirlpool super capacity 465

ANSWER BF, Under the circumstances, You most likely have a weak oven igniter 12400035, it's a bit hard to tell without a proper model number. The igniter can glow but not produce enough amperage to open the oven safety valve. You should be able to remove the oven bottom panel, turn on the oven and observe if the glow bar igniter glows "white hot" and produces the 3.2 to 3.6 amps needed to open the safety valve.
