Yes, most likely the broil relay got welded shut. The company will want to sell you a whole new control board for about $200.00 -- but if you have any soldering skills, you can purchase a new replay for around $6.50.

Hi the problem here is the igniter. Take the floor of the oven out and then the flame spreader. The igniter will be located at the back of the burner. Set the oven for 350, if the igniter does not light then test it with an ohms meter it should read continuity. If it reads open you should replace it. If the igniter does glow it still could be bad, the igniter should glow bright yellow to the point you can't look at it. If the igniter glows orange/yellow it is bad you will need to replace it. If you have any other questions please feel free to comment. Mike

your model is not complete so i am sending you a breakdown of a JGBS20 gas range. there should be more to the model and you can usually find it on the frame of the stove after opening the oven drawer. anyway, the igniter is #218 in the picture. maybe it will help you somewhat to figure out what needs to come off to change it. hope this helps.250

What you found is the bulb for the thermostat which has broken off. The model number you supply is incomplete. If you have the full model number, I can get you a part number.
