I have a Magic Chef built in oven with electric glow ignitor, I Had to correct a small leak, it worked (lighted up) fine before, I used soapy water to find a leak at the fitting before the regulator where the flex line and shut off valve is located. Model 9112VUV afterward , the Oven wont turn on, the glow ignitor works but the gas is not igniting, I took it all apart again to clear any obstruction if any and still wont light up. As I mentioned before, the gas pressure regulator ,ignitor all worked now it doesnt, all I did was secured a breach at the connector, can anyone explain the Cause?:confused:

Make sure the gas shut off valve for the range is open and the oven shut off valve on the pressure regulator (red piece) is open as well.

Very likely the igniter does not draw enough current to open the gas valve. You have to measure it and if it's 3.2 amps or less, replace the igniter.
