Question about Microwave Ovens
Your range uses a glow bar ignition system.
On that design of range if the oven ignitor is not glowing at all, the problem could be in the thermostat, oven ignitor or oven gas valve (or a wire has just come off somewhere). Each of those components should be able to be tested for continuity to see if one is open (has infinite resistance) or not. If it is, it is likely defective and needs to be replaced.
Sounds like your bake ignitor is failing. It can glow cherry red and still be bad. The ignitor must send between 3.2 and 3.6 amps to the valve to open it. To test the ignitor it must be calling for heat and an amp meter put on it to read the amperage it is putting out. If it is not then the faulty is your problem. The cost is near to $45.
