I have a Jenn-Air JGS 9900 BDS.

It started only partially heating on Bake and Convection Bake options.  It would get to 200 or so degree in actual temp while indicating on the display much warmer - i.e. 300 degrees

I noticed that the lower gas burner was not igniting while the upper burner was igniting.

Removing the lower burner covers confirmed that the lower burner was not lighting.

The lower burner did not light manually but I figured there is a sensor preventing gas flow if there is a problem.

It seems to indicate possibly a defective ignitor?  I am fairly well versed in home appliance repair so was looking for a few things to try to  confirm the source of the failed ignition so I could order the appropriate parts.

Thanks

Hello,

You can test this part for continuity and make sure power is going to it. If it is not coming on in bake cycle then the bake ignitor has likely failed https://www.appliancezone.com/7432p143-60-whirlpool-oven-burner-igniter/
