Question about Kitchen Ranges
Either the ignitor you see glowing is going bad and not pulling enough amps to open the gas valve or the gas valve under the burner is bad.

SOURCE: oven won't light
Well, the igniter needs to be replaced. They go bad after a lot of use, if you replace it and it's still not sparking, let me know but 99% of the time replacing the igniter will fix the problem.
If you have any further questions, just ask, I would be glad to help

its possible your gas regulator is bad or the gas line to the ignitor is stopped up look at the line and see if some type of food has blocked the outlet

bad oven ignitor is the most common cause of bake failure, located onthe side of hte burner bar itself, if youd like with a multi-meter, you can check the wires leading to the ignitor for 110v. if you have power and nothing was glowing from ignitor theres your problem

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.

Testimonial: "Thank you very much for your help. I was looking for a thermocouple but that must be old school. I couldn't figure out what told gas to flow."
