Gas oven problems

I have a Magic Chef 34HA-5TKVW range/stove that is having a problem with the stove and broiler lighting. On Thanksgiving morning I turned the oven on like normal, the display showed normal but within 5-10 seconds the "oven on" display went out and the oven did not light. I tried it several times more and tried the broiler and neither would light. I removed the oven bottom and checked the burner and tried it a couple of times more and it started! I put it back together and left the oven on all day fearing it wouldnt restart. The next day I tried it again and could not get the oven or broiler to light no matter what I did, so I took the covers off the back and started to test variuos things in an attempt to diagnose the problem. This is what I found when turning it on:

The relay board is energized for about 3 seconds and power reaches the HSI. Then the relay drops out but the display is still on for another 3-4 seconds. If I hold the contacts closed on the relay the oven will light and stay lit until I release the contact.

The problem is affecting both the broiler and oven which have seperate burners and HSI parts and 1 dual gas valve. Any help in diagnosing the problem would be appreciated. Any kind of trouble shooting sheets would be great as well.

Gas oven problems

if you're getting power to relay then relay board is bad if no power then clock [erc] is bad.
