1. Unplug AC power to oven
2. Unplug both wires going to gas valve
3. Check continuity between the two connections on the valve..should have continuity.
If not most likely a bad valve.
4. If continuity OK on valve, put connectors back on valve.
5. Plug AC power back in.
6. Turn oven on and check amp draw on line from ignitor to valve. If out of spec with
your style of ignitor, highly suspect ignitor even if ignitor is glowing.
In my case, it was the ignitor.

My problem is that the oven sometimes will not light, or it may take a very long time to light, even though the igniter glows when it is turned on. When the oven does light, the temperature usually fluctuates, and rarely reaches the desired temperature. Oddly, when the range burners are lit, the oven temperature (once lit) remains relatively close to the desired temperature, but usually 25-50 degrees lower.
My question is, to replace the igniter, must you pull out oven, lay it on it's back & disconnect AC prior to safely replacing igniter? I don't think I can fit into the broiler section to replace igniter in its current location!

I removed the broiler by just sliding it out and lifting to remove. Once this was done, I had enough room to replace the ignitor without completely removing the oven from the wall.
