Oh great one once again I come to you seeking appliance wisdom. Our Amana stainless steel is on the fritz. This model has rotary burner knobs and a 5"x7" digital panel for oven control. We started noticing that it was slow to heat and sometime had a slight gas odor, it works fine some times others even when set to say 350 will hang at 180 and refuse to move up. Upon removing the shield in the bottom above I set the temp for 350 meditated and observed the electric ignighter (did I speel that right?) glow brightly for as long as 5 minutes before the gas came on. It then came up to 180 and stayed there refusing to climb to 350. I then put the shield back on closed it up, popped a meditation aid (home brewed) and observed noting no change in temp, put a meat themometor thingy (speel problem again , most likely due to the home brew) inside and confirmed the temp was at 180. What incantations must I perform to rectify this temperature imbalance Oh great one?

Oh great one, once again you sent me down the right path to enlightenment, the glow ignitors thingy was the problem, replacement brought heat once again to the oven. One thing that throws me is I don't see a sensor nearby to sense it is working and allow gas flow like for instance on my hot water heater or furnace. Is this magic?

yes, actually the Ignitor is in series with the Gas Valve.

When the Ignitor circuit reaches 3.2 Amps, there's enough current (and voltage) to open the Gas Valve.

The Ignitor (and Gas Valve) stays energized anytime the Flame is required.
