Question about Hotpoint RGB745 Gas Kitchen Range
When the igniter glows but the gas does not come on it is usually the igniter not reaching the correct amp draw.
When the igniter does not reach the correct amp draw it may allow the gas valve to partially open or not open at all. The igniters are inexpensive and easy to replace. This video will walk you thru the correct procedure for testing an oven igniter. It may be a different model but the testing will be the same.You can also enter your model # for diagrams and illustrations of your specific model. Not all models are available. All parts come with installation instructions.
Now if the oven is staying on all the time, this usually indicates the relay on the main control is stuck/melted in a closed position. This will mean you will need to replace the control again.

oven control supplies voltage to the oven igniter/gas valve circuit. When the
oven control is set to Bake, voltage is supplied to the oven igniter which
should glow bright red to almost white hot. Once the igniter comes on and
begins to glow it must pull enough current to cause the gas valve to open so
the burner can ignite from the igniter. I added an image below with the theory
of operation. Click this link:--http://media.fotki.com/1_p,swbbsqrsgstsqkkxgtqsskgwtqkq,vi/wrgtsbrktxwdfwfbgdg/1/1303472/5961857/image5576034710104836299img-or.png
the broiler drawer and then set the oven control to bake and watch to see if
the glow bar igniter glows or not. If it does not glow, the failure could be a
broken Igniter, failed oven control board or gas valve. If the igniter is
glowing red, then it can be possible that gas valve is faulty. To see how
igniter looks. See the fig below:--

Also to confirm, check to see if the igniter is getting 120 volts
when it's turned on. If it gets 120 volts, then your safety gas valve is bad
because it's not letting the neutral go through. Otherwise, if it's NOT getting
120 volts, your control board shorted out and you need a new control board.
But as you mentioned that control board is replaced. So igniter should get 120 volts. If valve is faulty. But if igniter is not glowing then its faulty igniter confirmed.

In most of the cases the igniter is faulty, because gas
valve getting faulty is very rare. But still getting the voltages checked, will
confirm. These will help. Thanks. Helpmech.
