Question about Hotpoint RGB745 Gas Kitchen Range
The oven light comes on, but doesn't heat. The broiler works fine, however.
Tried to find a pilot, but nil. If there is a bulb needing replacing, where is it and how to access it? Please help
More than likely, you have a bad igniter for the bake manifold. Since the gas range has a separate ignitor for the broiler, this explains why the broiler works and the bake function does not. Since most consumers tend to bake more often than broil, the bake ignitors go bad more frequently. There are a couple of different ignitor types listed for your range. I will need an EXACT model number (located somewhere around the oven door opening) before I would be able to give you a correct part number. The ignitor price varies between $52 - $64. If you wish to make the repairs yourself, I can give step by step instructions. Please post back with your information and I will be able to assist you further.

This solution was very helpful to me! I would only add that if you search ebay for "Hotpoint Gas Range Oven Igniter", you will find a seller called Midwest Appliance Parts that sells them for $30 plus shipping. Their part number for these things is WB2X9154 instead of 1990, but it's the same item. I just installed it and it works great.
