For Whirlpool Oven Bake Igniter (Part Number: AP4041245)

I had problems getting the oven to heat up. Sometimes when I asked for 375, it got only to 200, then after an hour or so, it would climb up to 375. I looked at the diagrams here, and tried to reach the oven bake ignitor by taking off the shield and going from the top, but have two screws I can't budge, located way in the back. I can see the glow from underneath the metal shield, though, when the oven is set to bake. So I replaced the temperature sensor, but no difference in its failure to bake. The broiler and burners work fine. Can it be that the oven bake ignitor glows but doesn't work well enough to bake? Or is it the whole electronic board that needs replacing?

ANSWER Hi Joe. You can try to use the lubricant called "Break free" to get the access srews loose. This part # is 5303937087 You can also remove the lower storage drawer to access the igniter wires. Yes it is a normal failer the ignitor needs replaced as you described. This part # is 31940001. Thank you.
