SOURCE: oven slow to heat
In alot of ovens preheat will cause the both the broil and bake element to come on. You are most likely getting heat from the broil element. This means either the bake element is bad or the relay on the oven control is bad. If the element shows resistance with an ohm meter then replace the oven control board.

there is an ignitor bar that has to operate properly to open the gas saftey valve. the ignitor can glow but be weak so it wont open the gas valve. replace ignitor to slove problem

You don't list a full model number or how old this range is, or how long / how often you have this problem, but generally it sounds like the oven ignitor is not quite drawing enough amps to allow the gas valve to open regularly. It could be a low voltage related issue, but most likely is a failing oven ignitor. ( WB2X9154)

Either your bake element is bad or there is a bad connection going to the element. This is a very high current connection so bad connections are always a possiblity. Also check and make sure your broil element is working as some ovens use it for pre-heat. Do both elements seem about the same temp? You can turn the oven on and carefully hold your hand a few inches from the element to see if they are getting equally hot. If your connections are good to the elements then one of the "calrod" elements is probably bad. You can also check the resistance of each element. Not sure of exact reading but a higher resistance means less current going to the element. Just compare reading on each one and go from there. Good luck!
