Hello. I don't know how old this model is but I couldn't bring up parts for it--it sounds like from what you've described, the oven control is shorted--probably from grease or other contaminants getting inside. The clue is that the "oven lights randomly even though the control is set to *off*.
This will sound crazy but I had to work through it on my own stove a few years ago. The ignitor (glow tube) was getting hot but the oven would not owrk. When investigating the problem I found that the gas valve will only open when the ignitor pulls a specific amperage or draw of current. As the ignitor ages it pu;;s a reduced draw of current. This causes you to be fooled by the glow nut no gas. Replace your ignitor and your oven will begin to work again!
You can get ignitors easily online by doing a search for "appliance parts" and then entering the model number of your stove. Look for ignitor and you will be good to go. Also check out a few different sites as the prices of the parts can vary quite a bit.
Most likely your problem is the glowplug aka oven igniter. Even though it comes on it must reach a certain temp for the gas to come on. Occaisionally the valve will be bad but 90% of the time it is the igniter. Part number is 74007498
With no model number given, it's kind of hard to help you beyond writing that Sears.com has a huge inventory on parts and illustrations of the devices in an exploded view referenced to each part number and can supply several million parts directly.
If you go to their site with your model number, you find out quickly if they have what you need for your range regardless of manufacturer.
Most all later gas ovens us a 'surface' type of ignitor and in most cases, using the illustration, anyone a little handy can replace these.
you ignitor is going out you will need to replace it the ignitor needs to draw a min of 3.2 amps in order to open the gas valve coil if short of this it will not open at thimes it may just have enough to open
sounds like you have a bad oven ignitor, although oyu see it glowing orange its not hot enought hoopen the gas valve, very common occorance. 2 maybe 4 screws and 2 wires, order aand replace the bake ignitor
