Remove the two nuts of the oven cover.
Turn ON your oven knobs observe the ignitor for about 14 seconds if glow at all.
If the ignitor glow weak "orange" it shows that the ignitor need to be replace bcos it doesnt draw enough current to light up the gas.If it does not glow at all. visualized the ignitor if shorted "whites fume" on the surface or broken.If not, remove the power plug from wall socket, check the leads of the ignitor connectors, set your meter to resistance(ohmic value). if no reading or beeping sound - that indicate bad ignitor . part # for your model is PS50459.
If does not glow at all, check the safety valve perhaps one or two pins burnt with the wire harness.You may also check connectors leads that goes to your ignitor.
