I first tried diagnosing it myself and thinking that since the igniter was glowing red and the flame was coming on but very low and minimal and even at times almost going out I purchased the gas valve but it really did not fix the problem. A couple of weeks later I went back on partselect and used Instant Repairman and saw that the igniter fixed this problem most of the time. I ordered it and put it in, which was very easy, and it fixed my problem. The oven woks like new now.
