Amana Oven not heating up

Like one of the posts earlier I have an AGS761L and recently the oven quit heating up. The broiler works fine as do the burners, but the oven temp doesn't rise at all. The ignitor (hope this is correct term) heats up, but it appears gas is not flowing. Any ideas? Thanks.

Hello spacity7 and Welcome to the Do It Yourself Web Site and my Gas Appliances topic.

Chances are the HSI (Hot Surface Ignitor) is too weak to ignite gas. Thus the gas control valve will not open and allow gas to flow. Replacing the ignitor is suggested as the first step in attempting to fix the appliance.

Retail parts dealers and appliances parts stores can also help determine what the possible problem may be based upon that specific brand and model. Bring the make, model and serial numbers. Dealers and appliances parts stores are listed in the phone book.

Additional Suggestions:
Read the manufacturers online web site for product information, problem possibilities, causes, solving methods, part locations, disassembly, reassembly methods, repair procedures, pictorials, schematics, repair and or owners manuals which may be available online.

Cautionary Note:
Before attempting any repairs, be sure to unplug the appliance from the wall receptacle power source first.
