Hi, welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you! I suspect the bake igniter is weak and is not opening the valve all the way or is not holding it open. Do you see a glow from under the oven floor when set to bake?
Do you have a clamp on meter to test current draw with?
That igniter has to draw at least 3.2 amps to open the valve and keep it fully open. I suspect it is weak and is dropping current draw and allowing the valve to drop out. I would replace the igniter.
The link below is to the part you will need from a highly recommended company rated A+ with the Better Business Bureau. They offer a 100% money back guarantee, EVEN ON INSTALLED ELECTRICAL PARTS, for an entire year! They are the only company to allow returns on installed parts for a refund and offer a FULL ONE YEAR WARRANTY!
Odd, the parts show the bottom uses a glow igniter, too. Use sand paper to clean the lower igniter electrode and the area of the burner it sparks to. Does it change behavior at all?
No, just the lower bake burner. Did you sand the igniter electrode and burner tube yet?
