The weird thing is that is still broils. When switch to "broil", I see the ceramic igniter thing light up, but not when it's on "bake". Is there a second igniter somewhere? If not, what could be wrong?

Thanks,

Chris

Yes Chris, you have a BAKE ignitor glow bar underneath the oven panel.

If it didn't start to glow orange at all when you turned the BAKE cycle on, you'll first need to check for 120 volts to it first before you order it.

Do you have a multimeter you can check for 120 volts at the connector the glow bar igniter plugs into?

Thanks, Jake. Yes, I have a multimeter. So there's a bake igniter at the bottom of the upper oven? I didn't look there yet.

Thanks a lot for the pointer!
