Question about Hotpoint RGB745 Gas Kitchen Range
I've seen some notes about how the oven ignitor should be observed for the "glow" and/or tested for amperage to see if it's bad. The owner's manual suggested that the oven gas shutoff valve mey have been somehow turned off. It includes a small diagram of the valve and it points to the far right corner of the oven surface under the cooktop. Maybe I'm confused, but I see no such animal in that vicinity, even with the cooktop removed.
The manual says it's for models RGB744 and RGB745. I'd like to know the specific model number, but have no idea where it is. It's not obvious on the unit.
I'd like to at least get the baker working.
Advice? Thank you,

It's troublesome, thought, that the broiler won't fire either. Is that not another ignitor/burner? I can't imagine both ignitors failing at the same time. All the cooktop burners are fine.
What I really need is a diagram or something that would show me how to get to and expose a given part.
Have you run the self-cleaning feature recently? I had a similar problem on my stove of the same model, and it was the switch that detects whether the oven latch is engaged (if it gets stuck and thinks the latch is locked, it will not ignite the main burner or broiler). An easy way to check if that's the problem: without touching the latch, turn the controls to Clean. If the burner lights, that is your trouble.
