Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

If the oven igniter is not glowing, it could have a faulty electronic oven control or a faulty oven safety valve. The oven safety valve must measure continuity/resistance across the two male terminals or the igniter will not glow.

The igniter must 120 volts applied to it or it will not glow. The oven safety valve must also measure continuity across the two terminals for the bake circuit or the igniter will not glow. Be sure to disconnect the two wires from the oven safety valve before testing the valve for continuity. If the oven safety valve measures resistance/continuity, I suspect the electronic oven control/clock assembly is faulty. You can remove the panel from behind the oven control/clock assembly and check the control board for any burnt connections or darkened components.

I added an image of the wiring diagram below to reference the oven circuit. Disconnect the power cord from the power source before disconnecting and testing the oven safety valve and before replacing the oven control.

 I hope this is helpful. If I may be of further assistance as more details become available, please reply to this post.
