There seems to be low voltage to this solenoid
How low ??? should be within 10 percent (108-132 volts)

Unplug the unit and then replug...look at the scrolling message on the oven display...it will ask you to make sure all the burner valves are off and if so to press start or cancel...this will or should open the solenoid supplying gas to the top burners.

A normally closed (N.C.) electrical solenoid
is located on the back of the range that will
provide a means of shutting off the gas
supply to the cooktop burners. This 120-volt
solenoid is connected across the L1 and
Neutral sides of the line and controlled by a
relay on the microcomputer board. See
Strip Circuit, page 3.
The solenoid is held open to allow gas to
flow to the cooktop burners. If a customer
wants to “Lockout” the operation of the
cooktop burners, they can hold down the
TOP/TOP LIGHT keypad on the control
panel for 5 seconds. See Use and Care
This will open the relay and disconnect the
electrical supply to the solenoid. Once the
electrical supply is disconnected from the
solenoid, the solenoid will close and stop
gas flow to the cooktop. In the event of a
power outage, the gas supply to the
cooktop burners will be shut off.

Imho...I am all for safety but damn....the genius's have engineered out the best thing about having a gas cooktop...being able to use the top during a power outage.
of course, we are all WAY to stupid to be trusted with such awesome power.
thank you mister regulator man for protecting me from my silly self...:-(
