Sorry to read about your problem, I hope this helps you out.
the ignitor was never the issue, you have a defective gas control valve, or the flame on sensor is defective. if your first problem was takes forever to heat up...but sounds like another issue came up with the 5 sec thing...

Had same issue - replaced the ceramic ignitors and most of my problem was solved. Apparently ignitors require replacement every 3-5 years. When they start to go it takes forever for your oven to heat up ... they don't glow properly causes the gas valve stays partially closed - ie hence less flame/heat. It may also significantly increase the amount of time it takes for the burner to light at all - essentially for the same reason.
On my oven the other issue was the burner itself ... it had corroded somewhat so the flame didn't automatically 'move' around to the other side of the burner. I removed the burner & cleaned the surface with a brass brush - problem soved. So essentially I had two issues - burner requiring maintenance & replacment of the ignitors.
As an aside I'm no expert - just relaying my experience.
It is very possible that the oven ignitor is getting weak and not pulling the required amount of amps/current through it any longer to allow the gas safety valve to open completely/properly. You will need to find someone with an amp probe of some kind and verify that you have between 3.3-3.6 amps thru the ignitor circuit. If it is below that threshold replace the ignitor. If it is within that range or above replace the gas safety valve.. best of luck, have fun, ttfn
I went through that once and believe it or not it was the ignitor. Instead of a thermocouple these new ovens use the amount of current going through the ignitor to prove the flame. Seems like after it gets ot a certain temperature the amps drop off enough to cut out the flame and then it will try to recycle. If it is not that it would be the thermostat but they very seldom go bad. I would reolace the ignitor first I think it will solve your problem.
How does it warm if there is no flame? The only thing is that it maybe catching on the first ignition but not the second and third which is why it warms but does not heat further. May need a new ignitor. I think there are 2 in this range. 2 bake ignitors could run about 500 - 600 depending. 300 - $400 for 1 ignitor. Good luck.
the oven flame seems to be to low, that flame most be at least 2 inches long. not counting the sides of flame from one side of the burner to the other, but from where the flame begins at the metal of the burner.
