Is the gas turned on at the stop valve behind the range? Assuming the gas is on, the igniter can glow but not actually be working properly such that the control valve does not open or the valve may be failed. There are electrical measurements for the valve and igniter and related circuit that can be made if you have a clamp on amp meter and a volt meter.

SOURCE: Broiler not lighting on gas Kitchen Aid SuperBa

I had the same problem with the igniter glowing and I could smell gas no flame. I took the broiler out.
Not as hard as it sounds. Took out 6 screws I did not have to disconnect the igniter, because there is
enough slack in wire to just drop it down a bit. Looking where the burner tube came out I could see
the orifice. I connected a safety pin tin long twisses and stuck the pin into orifice rubbed it a bit. Put it all back together. Just make sure the burner tube gets set in all the way don't force it.
Good Luck Joe C.

Glow plug on oven


Yes. Igniter stays on from just before ignition until just prior to burner shut down with each burn cycle.
