I can see the glow in the back but the oven does not ignite

All else works, including the broiler

Even though it glows it may be a bad ignitor.
Your amp meter clamp over one ignitor wire should read 3.2 amps or higher.
The gas valve should ignite in 45 seconds or less from the time the oven is turned on.

Thanks! I kinda thought it was that.

Having a little issue getting the ignitor out

One of the two screws holding it to the bracket seems stripped, just goes around and doesn't back out

Tried using a screwdriver under the head while turning, to pry it a little but it hasn't worked

Any thoughts or tips?

Stainless steel screws wouldn't hurt ..

Will do thanks for your help, all you guys are great and fast on responding!

One other ting, I have lost a couple of the little metal inserts for the knobs on the range. Do you know where I could find the metal inserts for the range knobs?

Take your scissors and cut a metal strip from a BEER can.
Place the strip around the stem and trim it to size.
Slide the knob over the metal strip.
It will hold.
