Hello, this is Dave. Do you have an meter to test voltage?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No
Expert:  Appliance Tech Dave replied 1 year ago.

This is almost always the igniter. It would be an educated guess without a meter. Is that something you wanted to do yourself?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
You still there?
Expert:  Appliance Tech Dave replied 1 year ago.

To besure I get the right part number I would need the rest of the model number off the tag.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
But the broiler works
Expert:  Appliance Tech Dave replied 1 year ago.

Yes, there are two igniters.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
We moved the broiler ignitor to the bake ignitor and it still don't work. But it works in broiler spot
Expert:  Appliance Tech Dave replied 1 year ago.

Good that is as good as having a meter. The bake valve is the only other thing in series with the igniter so that is your problem. Can you get me the complete mode so I can geet you the correct number?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Is there any way to switch the modes so we can atleast get the bake working?
Expert:  Appliance Tech Dave replied 1 year ago.

No, they are different. Here is a link to one for a 790.32602310. The part with the brass orifice is for the bake and the other is for broil.
