Hello, I am here to assist you. So by your write-up I can assume that you checked for 120vac at the connector for the ignitor and did not get 120vac. If that is the case then unfortunately you have a bad electronic control board. I am going to send you a diagram that is the wiring schematic for your range. On it you will see that the ignitor gets the 120vac from the electronic control. You need to replace the control to fix your issue. Sorry about the bad news and let me know if I can assist you any further.
