More information required

Model Number: KFGD500ESS
Are there no numbers at the end of the model number? eg. KFGD500ESS_ _

Replaced new igniter and bake still doesn't work.
What exactly doesn't work about it? Ignitor isn't glowing? The burner just won't ignite into flame??

You can read about how common gas oven ignition systems work and the observations and tests necessary to start diagnosing problems with them at the following link:

[Replaced new igniter and] Igniter is not glowing on bake, only on broil.
A new ignitor should rule it out as the possible cause... assuming you replaced the bake ignitor and not the broil ignitor.

As explained at the link previously supplied that would leave the oven gas valve, the control or the wiring between those components as the possible culprits for your symptom. The bake side of the oven valve should be able to be ruled out with a simple continuity test.

If the control is responsible, a new replacement may not be available.
