If the bottom oven heats and only the top oven is affected, it sounds like your igniter is in need of replacement. Igniters generally last about 6-8 years normally and then they either stop working all together, or they just get weak and don't draw 3.2 amps even though they are glowing. If an igniter doesn't pull 3.2 amps, the oven gas safety valve will not open up. Now the bake igniter is mounted to the bake burner below the floor inside the oven so you'd need to pull the floor out of the oven to access the igniter for replacement. Below is a link to the igniter for your model and it costs about $50. CLICK HERE for igniter We are on the honor system here.

OK I can send this to customer service and they can adjust the amount. But before they do that I ask that you rate my service because the question gets locked out when I send it to customer service and then I can't communicate with you and you can't communicate with me until they have finished.

Hello again. I'm just following up because I haven't heard back from you and I see this question is still open. Is there anything else I can help you with?
