Appliance Technician: Tyler Z., Appliance Doc replied 3 months ago

Since your oven still works but the temperature isn't correct it sounds like your bake igniter is just going out and needs to be replaced. 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 $40.

One other thing to check first would be your oven sensor. The sensor should read 1080 ohms at room temperature. If not then replace the sensor. It's the 5" long metal rod coming out the back of your oven inside near the top of the oven cavity. Below is a link to that part as well.
