Hi Tamiw and oh Mighty Guru Text,.
I had the same problem with the oven not emitting a flame from the burner, but at the same time- the ignitor lit up and heated the oven enough to say it is 'HOT'.
It seems to be an intermittent problem';sometimes it emits a flame while other times I would wait 11 minutes with the dial set to 400 to emit flames.,
Detailed description of PROBLEM and steps I have already taken:
The Ignitor always turns on, and lights up.
1. After the initial cleaning of the burner vents with a coarse bristle cleanibng brush, I turned the oven dial on and everything seemed to be working fine. ie: ignitor turned on, blue flames came out of the burner and maintained a constant temperature.
Then,-after I had performed a "self-clean", to see if this feature would now work, it did! I used the oven for bake a few hours later......
The same symptom ocurred, the ignitor went on, but no flames were observed, YES, there was heat coming from the oven, but NO flames coming out of the burner mechanism:
The Ignitor turned on, but no "flames" were observed. Heat was given off from the glowbar, but no flames. I did NOT smell any gas, only what an inside of the oven smells like after cleaning.
From my records, I had replaced the thermostat about 4 years ago.
Today, I tried this again, and sure enough the ignitor lit up, and the burner was emitting blue flames. But when I put the "FLAME SPREADER" back, and turned the oven OFF, then on again to bake cookies, the oven didnt seem to heat up completely.
Could this be intermittent? or Could the flame spreader hamper the burner operation? (Earlier when I loosened the nut on the flame spreader the bolt broke. I tried to replace with another nut, but the bolt/screw was too short for contact.) Could this contribute to the problem? Does the flame spreader need to be tightly screwed for the burner to function correctly?
One thing I am noticing, is that it takes LONGER for the flames to come thru (than the average 90 seconds)
For example: Ten minutes ago I set the dial to 350. 5 minutes went by, and no flames, then set the dial to 450 after ten minutes oven was hot, but no flames?
I THEN SET TIMER FOR ANOTHER 5 MINUTES, AND 1 MINUTE LATER THE FLAMES TURNED ON. Total preheating time for flames to come on today = 11 minutes.
I have a "MULTIMETER" from DIGITEK Model # DS830B+ This should work to see the amperage, but I dont remember how to test it! the MAX OHMs are 2000, MA 200 Max, 500V
Can I use this to test the current? How would I do this?
Lastly, HOW DIFFICULT IS IT TO CHANGE OUT THE IGNITOR> Meaning do I have to shut off the gas as well as the power circuit?
Ok, hope this helps.

Sounds like a heating element. Same thing happend to my oven. You can find them around 50-60 dollars. Veryy easy to install, just remove a couple of screws and remove old element and put in new one. Make sure you shut off power to oven firstg of course.

DO you have a model number for that. I'm almost sure it's a thermal fuse in the back of the oven. Usually they go out during or after cleaning but that would shut down both elements. If you have the model (usually by the inside door look all over and up in the cavity) Then if you go to this link
It will show you a breakdown of the oven and where it is. If you give me the model I'll show you what I'm talking about. Good luck.
P.S. if it the fuse it's a cheap fix, little hard to get in back of the oven but cheap!

SOURCE: Oven elements do not heat?
The oven bake element has burnt out and needs replacing. Shut the power off to the range. Remove the element mounting screws located inside the oven above or below each end of the element. Carefully slide the element out, disconnect electrical wiring. Install new element.
