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.
This happened to my DCS when the Hot Wire Relay went out. It isn't an expensive part, but finding someone that knows what needs to be replaced, and then can replace it is hard. My oven also did the opposite and continued to heat without shutting off, and it was once again the hot wire relay.
I figured it was the ignitor given the burners work fine and I could smell gas from the oven when I would try to turn it on. So I found a local parts store and bought the replacement ignitor. I cut the wires of the old ignitor close to the ceramic and spliced the new one on with porcelain nuts and voila my oven now works again!
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
If memory serves me,there are a couple of screws on oven floor.Remove panel.Sounds like ignitor is the culprit.It feeds back to control.It may glow and light but unless it is sending full signal,gas valve will not open fully and oven will take forever to heat.
