Why won't my oven burner light, the igniter is glowing?

I have a Frigidaire gas oven model FGB500CGBB that will not light. The igniter glows but the burner will not light. It seems their is no gas coming in to the line.

The oven igniter is likely too weak in order to open the gas valve. A weak igniter will not pull enough current to cause the oven gas valve to open. The glow bar oven igniter is part #5303308452. Replace the oven igniter and your oven will likely operate again.

I added a link to Sears Parts Direct with the oven igniter looked up for you. Click on "Ignitor-oven burner" to open the link.
