If you turn the oven onto broil and wait 5 minutes, then open the door and look at the ceiling, is there an igniter glowing toward the back of the ceiling?

Also, do you have a full model number located on a sticker around the front frame of the oven and can be seen if you open the door or remove the drawer below the door if there is one so that I can better assist you?
