Do you have a volt/ohm meter?
Customer: replied 2 months ago.
just a current detector
Expert:  applianceguy replied 2 months ago.
You need to know if voltage is going to the glow bar/ igniter. Before it stopped working, did it take longer to start to heat? Were you having temp problems?
Customer: replied 2 months ago.
It went out once before and took a long time and fiddling to come back on. Although I don't know if the fiddling helped, it came back on ("glowed") after a while. The currency detector did "detect" when I turned the oven temperature on
Expert:  applianceguy replied 2 months ago.
The igniter/glow plug needs to be replaced. As they get weak, they take longer to glow

No temperature problems. Good baking up to this point
