Question about Kitchen Ranges
For future reference, you need to explain whether this is a GAS or ELECTRIC range. It does make a difference in diagnosing the problem you have.
If this is a GAS range, the problem is more than likely a faulty igniter on the bake manifold. Since the bake feature gets used more often, it is common for the igniter to wear out faster. The following link explains how the igniters work and instructions on replacing one:
If this is an ELECTRIC range, the problem is more than likely a defective heating element for the bake feature. The same reason applies. Since the bake feature gets used more frequently, the elements wear out much quicker. The next link explains how to replace a heating element:
I don't know what solenoid you are asking about, but if this is in reference to a gas safety valve or regulator, you would have similar problems with the broil functions if the there was a gas flow problem. Since MOST ranges are fed from a common regulator, gas flow to all the features would be impacted.
