Question about Kitchen Ranges
As mentioned by several others, burners work fine, broiler lights but the bake burner won't ignite. I replaced both the glow igniter and then the clock/motherboard after testing showed there was no voltage to the gas valve for the bake burner. The problem started when attempting a self-clean; after 2 hours the stove shut down, having tripped the circuit breaker. I reset the breaker and the same thing repeated itself - breaker tripped after about 2 hours. I'm baffled. Any assistance would be much appreciated. Jonathan

It may be the ignitor, they can crack and you wouldn't even see. Good news is they are cheap ($5-20) and they are usually easy to replace. But before you replace it...
When set to bake, does the "oven cycle" light come on? If not, that means no power is being sent to the ignitor. Reason? There is a switch in the oven latch, to make sure a) latch must be closed for cleaning cycle and b) latch must be unlocked for baking. On mine, the switch button gets stuck, so even when the latch is unlocked, it thinks it is locked and will not allow the bake cycle to proceed. Cycling the latch a few times may free it, otherwise you'll need to replace the switch (not that hard but a bit of a pain to get to).
