I had the same problem and followed the process listed above....yes, I
did unplug/turn off the circuit and am alive to share this update!
Right off I noticed that the ribbon cable was loose. For those who have
tinkered around with other electronics such as a PC, etc., note that
this ribbon cable is not secured by the connector (atleast in my case).
Reseated the cable and turned the power on. Voila- the bake option
works. Tested it by turning it on for 20-30 seconds. Touched the bake
element and got proof that it was working fine (via a singe of the ring
About three minutes or so later, the display started to beep with an error code - E0 F2. A shorted keypad is what it stands for. The clock was still operable. I could still select the bake option, broil option, etc. Ran a test bake cycle but it turned off after a minute or so and started to display the E0 F2 code again.
Started the process all over ie turn power off, take panel off, reseat ribbon cable. Turn power on and test by holding the Cancel button for five seconds. Still displays the E0 F2 error. Waited for 10 minutes but this time no more beeping or error display. Ran a preheat cycle for 4+ minutes without any problems. The oven warms up and the bake element glows red. Hopefully, all is well. Will see what it does when we bake something the next time.
Thanks to PropHeadTwo and others for their contributions.

Some gas ranges may take 10 or so minutes to light.
Other than that you may have a defective glow bar ignitor.
If it glows and does not light the reistance in the ignitior has failed.
