I determined that the broil setting worked and it was just the bake function which was not working on my 8-year old Hotpoint range/oven. A quick search on the web brought me to PartSelect where I found excellent advice and instructions. My model oven has two igniters, one for broil and one for bake. I removed the bottom igniter which is for the bake function. I didn't even need to unhook the gas or get behind the range. I did remove the oven door for easier access. Because I have a multi-meter I did test the igniter just to be 100% certain it was shot, following an instructional video I found online. I ordered the replacement and the installation was fast and easy. My oven works perfectly again.
