On some gas ranges, the broiler comes on with the bake selection during warm up. This allows the oven to preheat much quicker. More than likely, the control pad is functioning properly and your bake igniter is bad. Igniters become weak with age and eventually go bad. Since the bake feature is used more frequently, it typically goes bad more often. The following link provides you with some guidance on oven igniters:
Remember: just because an igniter glows, does not mean it is good. If they become weak, they will not draw the required current potential to open the gas safety valve.
If you determine the igniter to be bad, you can obtain a replacement at searspartsdirect.com. Just type in your model number and go to the "Gas Controls" heading and look for item number 14 (part number 74007498). If the igniter plug does not match the plug you have on your oven, the instructions will guide you to cut the wires and splice the ends together. There should be ceramic wire lugs that come with the igniter kit. CAUTION: Make sure you only use the ceramic (heat resistant) lugs that come with the kit. Splicing with regular wire lugs or electrical tape will melt due to the heat. Additionally, make sure you UNPLUG the appliance before replacing the igniter. Live voltage potentials are still present with the range shut off.
I hope you find this information helpful. Let me know if you require additional assistance.

SOURCE: oven igniter problem
Find the bake ignitor (you may need to remove bottom drawer or oven cavity floor to get to the ignitor). Turn on the bake. If the bake ignitor comes on (starts glowing after a few seconds) - check the amperage on the bake ignitor wires when it's on. Amperage should be 2.5-3A. If less than 2.5A - replace ignitor. If the ignitor does not come on - check the voltage on the ignitor, should be the line voltage 110-120v AC. If there is a line voltage on the ignitor and it's not coming on - replace.
Ignitor part numbers : WB2X9154, 4342528, SGR403, 5304401265;
Those ignitors are interchangeable, if you can splice the wires. If not comfortable splicing wires - replace it with the first one in the list, should be direct replacement.

SOURCE: I recently bought a used
I had same problem, same model. Twice in 4 years. Was the lower ignitor gone bad. First time I assume to old age. 2nd time wife overloaded a roaster pan and it overflowed during cooking, and got liquid/**** on the ignitor somehow and killed it.
New one is $43 (http://www.repairclinic.com/Shop-For-Parts?s=t-crg9700-%3d%3d) online. More like $65-75 locally.
Tip: Upper (broiler) and lower ignitors are identical. For a quick test: Swap out the top one to bottom position and see if it works.
It has just today happened AGAIN to me 7 months later. Hence my being online for this.
It's an old horse, and 2 burners up top are acting funny for some time now. Rather than throw more good money into it I think I may trash it and just buy a new stove.
