If oven is new. expect strange smell coming from the heating up of the new paint, just to be sure also check for gas leaks.

If you are monitoring the oven temperature with an analog style thermometer you may actually be ok, but seeing the thermometers slow reaction time.
Some newer ovens actually do pre-heat beep prior to reaching temp in an effort to conserve eelectricity.
A good home test is to try your oven at several different temps to see if there is any variation in internal temperature. Try it one day on 300, the next at 375 and another day at 450. Give your analog style thermometer time to catch up (usually just about 15 min) and leave it on for a half an hour to see if the temp maintains.
Also Beware of aluminum foil AND THE NEW OVEN LINER MATS as they can alter oven performance bay absorbing and blocking the ovens natural heat radiation and convection air flow currents that happen in all ovens, not just convection models.
Another interesting fact is that older ovens used a thermostat in them that operated much like your thermometer and was very slow to react making the oven typically about 100 degrees hotter than where the customer set it. This was just a fact of life before the advent of electronic temperature management and became noticeable when people began trying to bake older "hand me down" recipes in the newer ovens with less than stellar results.
You can mimic the older oven performance by preheating the oven about a hundred degrees higher than called for and after it reaches temp, re-set it to the correct temperature and put the items in right away.
If you find your temperatures fluctuating ask your servicer to replace first the temp sensor and as a last resort the control board as this part is usually pretty expensive.
Good Luck with this!

This may sound strange, but here is what to do. (the full explaination is rather long)

Turn power off to the heater. Turn off water supply to heater. Drain at least a gallon of water out of the heater and diconnect one of the pipes at the top. Add a gallon of bleach. Reconnect pipe. Turn water back on to heater and run each hot water faucet in the house until you can detect the odor of bleach, then shut them off. Let the system stand for at least an hour. Now, turn each valve back on and run until the odor of bleach is gone. Turn power back on to heater.
