Weak ignitor. They will glow but not pull the 3 amps to open valve. Common problem.

On my gas range the broiler burner is the oven burner.

I have used this site with success in the past.

Had same problem with a GE. As suggested, the igniter is to blame. Was pricey too as I recall. DIY can probably save a lot if you have the know-how.

I just started having the same exact problem. Ignitor huh? I just looked at it, but have no schematics so I was going to call someone in. I think I will just swap the broiler and oven ignitors and see if it works.
