Question about Ovens
The stove should not take over 3 minutes to light. Even if the ignitor is glowing it is impossible to really tell if it is ok or not. When the ignitor heats up it's resistance drops, this allows for the amp draw to get to 3.2 amps or better and that opens the bi-metal inside the oven valve. The oven circuit consists of a control to regulate temp, a safety valve, a ignitor, and a burner. Any open component and the oven will not fire off. If all the components have continuity and the ignitor is glowing, but no joy, I would replace the ignitor. Usually the ignitor gets dim when it is weak and it takes a long time to light off and you might even have to bump the stove and get it to come on. Replace that ignitor.
