Question about Magic Chef CGR3725 Gas Kitchen Range
There can be a few causes of this condition.
Foremost, it is good that the igniter is glowing, it shows that there is some life in the oven control.
If you never smell gas, then the gas valve is defective, or is not receiving voltage from the control to turn it on.
If you do smell gas, then the flame sense electrode may be out of position (which should at least momentarily allow burner to light), or the flow of gas is restricted and not enough gas is reaching the burner.
You are probably looking at replacing the oven gas valve. Checking it with a multimeter for 1) operating voltage when it should be on and 2) for coil resistances (both coils should be the same and within specs) when voltage and wires are removed from it.

Usually, when an oven won't broil, it's because the broiler element is burned out. The broiler element in an electric oven is the black, pencil-thick tube at the top of the oven. When the broiler is on, the element glows red. This element has an expected life-span of several years. It may last for only one; it may last for many more. When the element burns out, you need to replace it.
If neither 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.
