More than likely, your igniter for the bake manifold needs to replaced. Even if the igniter glows, they sometimes become weak with age and no longer provide the necessary current to open the gas valve. The following link explains all this and how to replace one if you wish to perform the repair yourself:

Since the BAKE function is used more frequently than BROIL, the lower igniter tends to wear out more often. Its a fairly simple repair job. Replacement igniters can be found on line at searspartsdirect.com or repairclinic.com. There are other sites available, but these two tend to have the best prices, with Sears offering excellent parts illustrations for easy component identification. I hope this helps you. Let me know if you require additional assistance.

Oven won't work on gas with electric ignition stove


The glow bar for the bake burner is bad, needs to be replaced. Remove oven bottom to get to it, and also the utility drawer.

Oven produces soot when running, broiler ok, stove top ok


Al, you need to seat the needle valve on the bake. Remove the bottom drawer, right below the bake burner you will see the nut just below the air shutter adjustment. Turn this nut clockwise a few times, it might seem hard but just do it. Then try the bake again, you should have a nice bluel flame. Tenbears.

JGBP33 BAKE IGNITOR


You did not post a complete model number, but this should help:
Take racks out of oven. Remove two screws at the very back of the oven bottom. Lift back side of bottom up and back a bit to remove oven floor. Remove flame spreader (one nut at center). ignitor is at the back left of burner, most likely a WB2X9154 (round style) ignitor. The entire burner can be removed rather easily at this point if you remove the two screws at the front and disconnect the ignitor wire (if you wish to have easier access to ignitor mounting screws.)

KENMORE GAS STOVE OVEN LOWER BURNER WON'T WORK


bad oven ignitor is the most common cause of bake failure, located onthe side of hte burner bar itself, if youd like with a multi-meter, you can check the wires leading to the ignitor for 110v. if you have power and nothing was glowing from ignitor theres your problem

Oven burner doesn't light


If memory serves me,there are a couple of screws on oven floor.Remove panel.Sounds like ignitor is the culprit.It feeds back to control.It may glow and light but unless it is sending full signal,gas valve will not open fully and oven will take forever to heat.
