SOURCE: THE OVEN WILL NOT HEAT
How old is the unit? Sometimes the igniter can glow but if it isn't drawing the right amount of power to open the gas valve then that is the safety that is built into the oven... So unless the power requirement is meant gas valve will not light. Even though the hot surface igniter is glowing red hot. chances are the igniter is bad. Let me know what turns up. ken

When the bake igniter becomes weak or burns out, your oven would not bake. The bake igniter is usually mounted on the oven burner. It's about 1 inch by 4-8 inches (depending on the model), and comes in round or flat styles. If you don't see the igniter glow at all, it's probably burned out. Replace the igniter if found defective. Note: one of the exceptions could be that your oven is set to automatic mode instead of manual. If this is the case, set your oven to manual mode and check again.
If the bake igniter glows red and not bright yellow or white, it is probably because it is too weak. When this happens, the safety valve would not let the gas out into the oven burner. A weak igniter must be replaced.
A faulty igniter is probably the most common cause, however there are others:
-- defective thermostat
-- defective selector switch
-- defective gas safety valve
-- defective gas valve coils

Tips for a great answer:
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:--
To order this part click the link 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.
