Oven won't light, and stay lit

I'm not sure what is causing it, but my Tappn 'self cleaning' range works fine, all except the 'Bake' option of the oven. All burners light fine, and broil also works fine. The ignighter (or whatever it would be called) will glow bright orange, and once in a while, the the oven will light while on bake.

I did notice that if I tap on the little box (mounted on the inside back of the range)that is visable when I remove the drawer, it will also light, but only seems to stay on for a minute or two before going out.

Am I better off calling a repair man, or would it be something easy to fix? Doesn't really seem to be many parts that affect the oven.

I ruled out the thermostat, since the broiler works, but don't know what else could cause this problem
