I would suspect the Spark_Module from these symptoms. Look at the strength of the spark at both the broil and bake ignitors. If both are weak, this is a good sign the spark module is bad.

We, the unwilling, led by the unknowing, are doing the impossible for the ungrateful. We have done so much, for so long, with so little, we are now qualified to do anything with nothing.
