Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

If the bake igniter is glowing and the oven gas valve is not opening, the glow bar bake igniter is too weak to pull enough amperage/current to open the gas valve. Replace the glow bar igniter and your oven should ignite and heat properly.

The bake ignitor #316489400 for model 790.78732404 can be ordered from Sears Parts Direct. The oven floor can be removed in order to access and replace the bake ignitor. At the rear of the oven floor are a couple screws to remove. Lift the back of the floor up and slide it back to clear the oven frame and remove the floor. NOTE: Disconnect the power cord from the power source before servicing.

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