Good morning, my name is ***** ***** I'll be helping you with your oven today. You'll need to test the igniter. Turn the oven on and see if the igniter glows. If so, then use an amp clamp to see if it's drawing 3.2 amps. If not, then the igniters need to be replaced. If they do draw 3.2 amps, then your oven gas safety valve is bad and would need to be replaced.

Now the last option would be if the igniter does NOT glow at all. Then you'd need to test power between the 2 wires going to the igniter. If you have 110 volts when the igniter should be glowing, then you have a bad igniter. If you don't have 110 volts on either wire to ground, then you need a new control board.
