Question about Ovens
Sounds like your bake igniter is failing. It can glow cherry red and still be bad. The igniter must send between 3.2 and 3.6 amps to the valve to open it. If its not sending then the bake igniter is bad and it needs to be replaced.But still before replacing confirm ,by turning the vale on/off manually/.If it works then bake igniter is faulty.If it does not works but turning valve switch on/off then either valve or its switch is faulty.
Power must flow from the control system to the igniter and through the oven valve. If there is any break in that circuit, the igniter will not glow and thus the gas valve not open. The igniter not glowing could be caused by the ignitor or the gas valve being open (infinite resistance - no continuity). If both have continuity (ie. at least some resistance) and the igniter is still not glowing, a problem in the control system or the rest of the electrical circuit would need to be investigated.
An ignitor and oven valve having continuity does not necessarily that they are good, just that they're not electrically open, which is only one way that they might fail. If either has NO continuity at all (ie. infinite resistance) they are likely defective and need to be replaced.

Ignitor glowing but no gas to oven burner, means defective Oven Ignitor or defective Oven Gas Valve... and, keep in mind that an ignitor could glow and still be defective.
The only way to positively identify which might responsible is by measuring the amperage draw on the ignitor circuit. The ignitors used on your model should draw between 3.2 and 3.6 amps to be functioning properly.
