When I turn on the oven, the burners are not going on at full heat. The left one will start up strong but simmer down to a warm little glow in about 20 seconds. Then the right some times will kick up to a med force but the left will go out completely. They are never on together in a cold start or half warm. I have replaced the dual thermal gas ct-rl valve but the problem is still there. The oven takes hours to heat and can not hold a 350 temp. Is there any other controller I can get to fix this poor oven?

Look at this as an asset. The oven vents to that location. (gotta vent somewhere). You can use the heat to melt butter, keep something already cooked warm like the potatoes, dry pans after you've washed them... I like this feature!

If your electric oven is taking too long to heat or just not heating up right,
then check out this tip that will give more detail about your problem.
Had a similar issue - but my unit is eight years old. Turns out my issues were my oven ignitors were failing and one of the burners had corroded causing the flame to only light on one side. To fix I replaced two ignitors (apparently they are to be replaced every 3-5 years) and cleaned the burner with a brass wire brush. If you are handy the ignitors are easy to replace - one screw and two wires each. Burner was one screw to remove.
Ceramic ignitors if wearing out can cause delayed lighting of the oven burners and/or reduce the gas flow - hence not heating up.
When you put the oven into bake it preheats with the bake and broil element both. The broil element is most likely your only heat source if it took that long to cook the pie. Need to verify that the bake element is coming on. If it isn't then the problem is either in the control or the element itself. Give me the model # off the sticker on the oven and I can help you do the check out. In the mean time see if the bake element is getting hot.
Remove the bottom of the oven you will see 2 screws in the back. once you do that there is a flame baffel on top of the burner held on my one screw. remove that. now turn the oven on and watch to see if the glow bar comes on. I would say it wont or if it dose it is to weak to open the gas valve. Replace the glow bar and you will be back in business. the glow bar is a ware item everytime theoven is on and is heating the glow bar is on . good luck
