Question about Kenmore 30464 / 30465 / 30469 Gas Single Oven
Broilers both light, oven won't.
The igniter needs to be replaced. I had the exact same thing happen to my oven. The igniter would glow, but after tested, it did not have enough amperage to actually ignite the gas, so the gas kept running with no ignition

Hello, welcome to FixYa.
I've read your previous post's and can see a couple of scenarios have been thrown out there, so this may just add fuel to the fire...no pun intended.
It sounds to me like a tripped hi-limit safety thermostat is the culprit, hence neither ignitor so much as glows. I'll explain. If the valve where faulty the ignitors woul;d still glow as it is the ignitors which allow the valves to open not the other way around.
Further to that, if the ignitor where faulty, it is unlikely it would be both at the same time, however if a hi-limit safety tripped it shuts down power to both the broil and bake ignitors thus no oven function at all...that is it's function "safety".
The hi-limit safety on your range is on the back wall so you need to slide the oven out (if you haven't done so by now) to inspect it. To do so is pretty easy, one of two ways.
You can jump across it to see if it allows the oven to operate or you can ohm it out with a meter. it should simply be a closed circuit if good, open if not. It is the non-reset type unfortunately so you'll need to replace it.
It is part number 8300802 and available at "repairclinic.com" or "searspartsdirect.com" to name just a couple.
Let me know what you find and I'll be glad to help you moving forward from there. Good luck.

If the element does not turn off, possible faults are:
Shorted temperature probe.
Test temperature probe reading impedance. If impedance is zero or lower than 0.500 Ohms, the the probe is shorted. A good probe reads about 1KOhms.
Contact at element. A contact in element wiring harness may cause the element to stay on. Do continuity test between ground and element and on wiring harness.
Defective control module.
If problem is none of the above, then it is the oven electronic control(ERC). The ERC can be tested reading voltages.
Testing must be done by a trained technician.
