The oven on my gas stove is not working. The ignitor glows red but the gas tube never expels gas. I can hear the click in the electronic controls like normal but no ignition . I then put it on broil on hi and that works properly. Does this sound like an electronic control problem.
Replace the two coils on the gas valve. They activate the gas valve when they are working, it sounds as if yours are not. Find your gas valve and disconnect the elect. leads, lift them off the valve body. Note that one coil has two metal tabs and the other three. (Primary / Secondary) Replace in the opposite with new coils and start the cookies !

If the glow bar is glowing and the oven doesn't come on in about 30 - 45 seconds.... it probably is the glow bar that needs to be replaced. BUT it could be the oven valve. Usually it is the glow bar.
The glow bar is wired in series with the oven valve and even if it is glowing it may not be sending the correct voltage through to the oven valve.
To change the glowbar... unplug the appliance, unscrew 2 screws holding the metal bracket to the burner and remove the ignitor. You can cut the 2 white wires going to the ignitor and use ceramic wire nuts with the new ignitor.
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.
Hi, It sounds like the ignitor has gone bad. Remove the floor panel in the oven and locate the ignitor fastened to the burner. There should be 120V going to the ignitor harness. If you have voltage but no ignition, change the ignitor. I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist you further. Vic
When you turn the thermostat on your range on it sends 120 volts to the
bake valve and ignitor. The bake valve and ignitor are wired in series
and the ignitor draws all the current and heats up. As the ignitor
heats its resistance changes and when it is cherry red the current
switches to the gas valve and it opens. The amp draw on the ignitor
needs to be 3.2-3.6 amps for the gas valve to open. The gas valve has
gas to it at all times. The gas valve should open within 40 seconds after the ignitor starts to glow. If
the ignitor is glowing red and the gas valve doesn’t open the ignitor
is usually the problem. Sometimes the ignitor will glow red but the
resistance doesn’t change and the gas valve doesn’t draw the current.
This is not a do it your selfer!

Mine did that and I found the ignitor for the oven was bad. It was the "glow" type for pilotless ignition and it was burned out. It is supposed to glow bright red and the gas comes on and the oven will light. It was easy to tell that it was bad. But to check it I swapped the broiler ignitor with the oven ignitor and the oven worked.
