Newer stoves use electronic ignition. There has not been a standing pilot on stoves for over 30 years now. What is probably bad is either the circuit board that controls the oven circuit, or the igniter.

Gas burners will have a glowbar ignition system that will draw approx 3.4 amps. It is most likely that the glowbar has failed. Check each glowbar to ensure that they are drawing the proper current. The pilot will not ignite or prove without the glowbar operating correctly (drawing the proper current and being at the right temperature)

If you are inexperienced with gas equipment, you should have a technician take a look at it.

Here is the installation manual. It has a little bit of information on the unit.

the thermal breaker was tripped, i looked at the wiring diagram that i got and it shows the breaker wired in series with the bake, broil, and convection circuits so when it popped the breaker it took out the 3 circuits. apparently when you use the self clean feature it pops the breaker so i took the rear panel off and checked it with an ohm meter and there was no reading, but i was fortunate that it had a reset button it pushed it and everything worked after refitting the rear panel
