I have a Kenmore Gas Range, Model 362.7585590 and the other day while I was baking dinner, it just stopped heating. Now I have nothing. Two years ago, I replaced the ignitor and I'm thinking it is the same issue. The coil looks broken on the oven ignitor and I can replace that again. But the broiler will not light either. Can the problem be more than the ignitor? The burners on the range still light. Thanks....

It's possible the bimetal in the gas valve is open. Only way to really know what's going on is to see if you're getting 120vac at the ignitor leads.

Kenmore 362.7585590 made by GE

I don't think there's anything in common with Bake & Broil on that model
Check voltages at the Ignitors,

OR test for about 3v AC across the Bake Terminals and across the Broil Terminals of the Gas Safety Valve.
May also be a bad Controller

Some of the photos in this post show you where the ignitor wiring is.

Do you have a multimeter?
