Most likely, your lower heating element has failed and needs to be replaced.
This is a simple step-by-step procedure...
1. Turn off the power to the oven at the breaker panel. Or slide the oven ahead and reach behind to unplug the power cord.
2. Take out the two screws holding the element bracket in place. These will be on the back wall of the oven. They are usually hex head or phillips screws.
3. Carefully pull the element toward you a little bit until you see the two wires behind it. Unscrew the wire leads and remove the bad heating element.
4. Handle the new element carefully while you attach the wire leads to it with the old screws. Don't stretch the wires any more than you have to.
5. Line up the new element while tucking the wires back in place. Be sure not to pinch the wires between the bracket and the back wall.
6. Fasten the bracket screws, making sure they're tight.
7. Restore power to the appliance and start your oven to check if the new element heats up.
A few things to remember...
You are working with high voltage! Be sure the power is off or the oven is unplugged!
If you find one of the wires has come off the old element, simply reconnect and check your oven. Your old element may work again and you will not need to purchase a new one.
In removing any of the screws mentioned above, note that they may be difficult to lossen due to years of exposure to heat. Don't give up, they will eventually loosen.
Your new element may have some oil or other gunk on it due to the manufacturing process. Once it begins to heat, it may start to smoke. Don't panic! Any residue will eventually burn away and the smoke will cease from then on.

I believe there is a thermal fuse (also called a TCO or Thermal Cut-Out) located either on the back of the oven, or between the top of the oven and the cooktop that has opened up. Did this happen after running a self-clean cycle?
the bake nor the broiler heating elements heat, but the range burners
still work, the clock may be set for a timed or self-cleaning cycle.
Check to be sure the clock buttons and knobs are set properly. If your
clock has a knob that says "push for man(ual)", push the knob in and
try the baking and broiling elements again. If it still does not
operate properly, you probably have a defect in the thermostat,
selector switch, or common wiring.
If the oven does not have a
separate bake/broil/etc. selector switch, the problem may be with the
thermostat. But it's not easy to check the selector switch or
thermostat for proper operation. If you suspect a problem in this area,
call a qualified appliance repair technician.

Based on your description, the igniter is dead.
The broiler and the oven heat each have their own igniter. Look for the characteristic glow when the oven is turned on. If it is not visible, then you will need to replace the "OVEN" igniter...
Google the stove model for repair parts and locate the igniter. Not too hard to replace... directions are packed with the new igniter...
sounds like you have a bad oven ignitor, although oyu see it glowing orange its not hot enought hoopen the gas valve, very common occorance. 2 maybe 4 screws and 2 wires, order aand replace the bake ignitor
If this range has electric elements in the oven, you may have blown one of the heating elements. Do any of the oven functions work? If you were attempting to BAKE when this occurred, have you attempted to turn on the BROILER to see if it works? If the BROILER still heats up, you may just have a bad heating element. If both features quit working, the problem may be with your Electronic Range Control (ERC) board. Post back with comments and let me know.
