SOURCE: oven element in IAG stove
Sounds like the thermostat is faulty but odd that both ovens fail to the same degree. It would probably be worth having the thermostat tested. Our IAG IOM6SE2 had the beeper volume go to a quarter volume - perhaps a similar problem. It is under warranty but IAG are not too keen to fix it. They first said, if it is a setting then we will bill you, and then, if it was caused by a power outage then it is not covered. (How can you tell?) They also suggested we claim against our home insurance. I have tried to find a service manual on the web, but no luck. If I had a circuit diagram I could be of more help.

it seems the burner in the oven is clogged, by grease, carbon or corrosion, it may need replacing, specialy if this is an older unit

Hello, I'll start by saying this may sound odd considering the info you provided, "ignitor glows...". It is actually the ignitor you'll need to replace. Being that I do service for sears I've replaced numerous ignitor's, both bake & broil, but bake being most common as it is typically used more frequently. I'll try to explain... The simpliest way to put it is this, the hot surface ignitors function like a large resistor. As the ignitor glows it reaches a value to allow the gas valve to open and lite the burner. If the ignitor is even slightly worn/off it won't ignite the burner, hence it need's to be replaced. Hope that help's explain what & why. If so please take a second to rate the solution I provided here at fixya. Good luck and thanks for visiting fixya. Macmarkus :)

It's a good possibility. The broiler and oven use separate igniters. So, if the broiler works, you don't have a gas problem. The surface igniters use an electrode via a spark module, so its a completely different ignition source.
No ignition in the oven is most commonly attributed to an oven igniter that is going bad. As these igniters age, they become weak and require replacement. The following link explains some theory behind how they work and how to replace one:
Replacements parts can be purchased at any of the following web sites:
Prices vary, so shop and compare.
NOTE: If the replacement igniter comes with a connector plug that does not match the one on your range, you will be instructed to cut the old connector plug off and splice the wires together using a set of ceramic wire lugs that are included in the replacement kit. DO NOT attempt to use standard wires lugs. They will melt due to the extreme heat in an oven. The ceramic lugs and the wires on the igniter are heat resistant.
If you have any questions about this repair, please let me know. I hope this helps you.
