I am assuming the BROILER works fine in the oven, right? If so, you may have a bad igniter for the BAKE manifold. It is common for them to wear out or become weak. Since the BROILER is not commonly used as much as the BAKE function, the BAKE igniter tends to wear out faster. You can check the igniter by removing the bottom plate of the oven, exposing the BAKE manifold. There will be a glow bar type igniter that begins to glow when the turn the oven on to preheat. If the igniter does not glow...a resistance reading will determine if it still good or not. It should read a low resistance if good. If the igniter glows, but still does not ignite, take a current reading. The igniter will have a current reading of 3.2 to 3.7 amps if good. In either case, if you do not get the desired readings, simply replace the igniter. There are two types of igniters listed under your model number:
Horizontal Mount - Part: #1034629 Price: $44.50
Vertical Mount - Part: #949510 Price: $41.70
This depends on how yours is mounted. Refer to your owners manual to see if there is a parts index listing. I hope this helps you. Post back with comments if I can assist any further.
CAUTION: Make sure you disconnect power from the range BEFORE connecting meter leads to the igniter leads. The igniter connector is usually found under the oven behind the lower drawer. In addition: if you DO purchase a new igniter, use care in handling it. The oil from your hands can potentially damage the igniter coil if you are not careful. This will result in a shorter life expectancy.

Ok open the door to about 1/3 of the way the door will rest there when you let go. Now pull straght up on the door. The door will slide right off. Pull the screws out that hold the door together. look at the bottom of the door then look on both sides for screws. remove them all. Pull the door apart and you can get to the screws that hold the handle on.
Good Day Hope this helps.

The problem is usually the igniter not reaching the correct amp draw .When the igniter does not reach the correct amp draw it may allow the gas valve to partially open or not open at all. The igniters are inexpensive and easy to replace. This video will walk you thru the correct procedure for testing an oven igniter. It may be a different model but the testing will be the same.You can also enter your model # for diagrams and illustrations of your specific model. Not all models are available. All parts come with installation instructions.
