Kenmore gas oven not baking

Hello-

I have a Kenmore 362.75575691 everything works but the bake. I have replaced the igniter but still it will not heat up so no gas no bake. What do I check next?
Thank you

Welcome to the forums.

Did the old igniter still glow ? Did it look defective/cracked ?

Did you check the gas valve for continuity ?
If it checks out good..... then the problem points to the control board.

Thank You PJ

I did not check to see if the old one was, the age of the oven and everything else working I assumed it to be the igniter ( yes i know the assume saying ). It looks like its been through a war but still has continuity. I did not have my meter with me when I changed it out ( it's my girl friends stove ) but went back today and found the new one has an open even though it looks fine. Monday when I replace it again I will check the gas valve.
Thank you for your assistance with the flow chart of what to check.
Will let you know what I find.
Thanks again

Thank you again PJmax!

The gas valve did not have continuity, ordered a new one replaced it. Then the old igniter glowed enough to be cooking again!
The GF was so happy she made me a yummy dinner, a batch of cookies and being a family friendly site will leave out the rest of the thanks I received ( =

Sorry PJmax you just get a THANK YOU!
