Gabriel: Thanks replying with the model number. I see by the model number that it only has one oven igniter and since it's not glowing it is likely broken. In order to confirm if the bake igniter is broken will require disconnecting the range from the power source and then disconnecting the glow bar igniter. You will find the glow bar igniter at the far end of the burner. It can be disconnected and tested for continuity using an OHM meter. If it does not measure any continuity, replace the bake igniter. If it measure continuity then you will need to disconnect the two wires from the safety gas valve and check for continuity across the two terminals on the safety gas valve. If it measures continuity, the electronic oven control has likely failed. The oven gas valve is located directly beneath the burner at the far end. The oven igniter is part #316489402
