Hi, Upon reading your post I immediately thought of a bad ignitor for the oven, but I am not sure whether you have a gas oven or a conventional electric range. So...If it is gas, I'd suggest replacing the ignitor for the hot surface ignition. If it's electric the bake element may be at fault although most range's use the broil in the preheat, so it should still climb up to 400, it would just take a really long time. Maybe you can clarify if it's electric or gas and I can try to move you forward from there. Macmarkus :)

I have a kenmore gas range with digital display that will let me increase the temperature up to 35 degrees f*. It says to press BAKE for 6 sec., then use the number pad to increase or decrease then press START.
Hope this helps

Hello David, welcome to FixYa.
Based on your description,I`d suggest it is the hot surface ignitor for the bake burner that is likely the problem...even if it glows, I'll explain further below.
Here's what you can try to verify if it's indeed the ignitor...if you're mechanically inclined. It'll look like this...
** FIRST unplug the range and turn off the gas to the appliance before attempting any service...safety first**
NOTE: Some ranges have an upper broiler the same as the lower (bake) ignitor ( some do some don't ) one could swap the ignitor`s ( very carefully, they are very fragile and don`t like to be handled ) this will allow you to use the bake burner, but it will leave you without the broil function...until you can purchase another.
Here's a helpful link...
This will confirm or dismiss if the ignitor is at fault...99% of the time this is the case. Many people overlook the ignitor, especially if it "glows" since that gives the untrained person the impression it works...that is not the case however. (Ignitor may glow but not have sufficient amperage to open valve, or open the valve slightly, even intermittently...but not hot enough to ignite the gas).
As far as checking them you don't actually need a clamp on meter (though it is the preferred method) you can also ohm it out to test it as follows...
You should be able to find one at most brick & mortar appliance parts vendors or on-line depot's such as "repairclinic.com", "searspartsdirect.com" to name a couple.
You can ask for part number based on the model number for the bake ignitor. The number I use in most applications (it's fairly universal and replaces both long and short ignitors and works in 90% of ranges out there)... is part #12400035. (Will not work on the GE with round type ignitors though).
I would still double check with your model number with the part`s professional`s if you're more comfortable with that.
Hope that help`s. Let me know if I can assist you further or if anything is not clear and good luck.
