Question about Ovens
Already replaced oven temperature sensor, but oven will only heat up to 120 degrees. The Broiler ignitor will glow when turned on but will not ignite. Is it the gas valve??? any help will be appreciated. the stove top burners work fine,,
Your gas valve has a thermocouple circuit that will not let gas flow until the ignitor is hot enough. A failed ignitor can still glow but not be hot enough to open the gas valve. Replace your ignitor.

Hello & Welcome to FixYa
This indicates an open/shorted oven temperature sensor and to solve this problem the sensor needs replacement. If you want to be sure before replacing the sensor then you can test it with a voltmeter for around 1100ohms....if it reads more than this then it needs replacement however, if the reading is around or less then 1100ohms then it is the control board that needs replacement. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.
