It sound like an igniter issue. When the igniters begin to get weak, they may still glow, but it will take several minutes till they will open the gas valve. It's easy to replace an igniter but you should be aware not to touch the black part of the new one with your fingers!!!! Good luck !!!

Frigidaire gallery stove, oven not working,

Morison,
The same thing happened to me about a week ago. I was preheating our electric oven, heard a very loud bang/pop. Checked and the oven had PF (power failure) I went downstairs and the breaker was tripped. Came back upstairs and to look at stove, the burners are working fine so I continued to preheat oven after a half an hour the oven was only slightly warm. Did you ever find out what was wrong?

HEATS UP BUT TAKES 2 TIMES LONGER TO BAKE, tried cookies and cake, had to keep putting back in for longer. Did not burn, but had a weird consistency. Looked at baking coil, 'looks' fine and does get...

your bake element should get red during the preheat time and also if you leave the door open after it has preheated.
if it is not that will cause your oven to not heat right.
even if it looks ok, it could still be bad.
unplug the oven and remove the bake element, then take it to your local parts house and they can check it for you.
this is the most common problem, but it could be a problem with your oven control. try the element first.

Oven will not heat - lights on panel do work

I keep having the same issue with mine, but if I go to the fuse box and flip the breaker off for about 10 seconds and then back on, it works fine. Obviously this isn't a permanent fix but it gets my stove working again for a couple of days usually. I have not been able to find anything on this issue until I saw your post.

KitchenAid gas range superba not reaching/registering right temp.

Always preheat your oven and let it cycle at least 2 times. Your unit may show 350 but the manufactures know that it is not 350. When it registers preheated, it really means that it is at an acceptable temperature to start cooking. If you think that it may not be calibrated correctly, your owner's manual will have instructions on how to recalibrate your oven. You will be able to raise or lower the temperature by + 25 degrees or - 25 degrees. As far as the gas smell, you will from time to time smell a gas smell with a gas oven especially if you are right at it when it ignites. If you are smelling gas when it is not in use then you should be extremely concerned.

Preheating Oven

Cold Stove, you may not be able to. The issue here is that oven manufactures put on their units a fast preheat. However it isn't possible to preheat an oven for 7 to 9 minutes and bake short time bake items properly. Also the oven sensor will respond faster than the absorbation rate of the sheet metal in the oven liner. To preheat an oven properly takes 15 to 20 minutes before putting in the food. I see this will a lot of current ovens. Sounds like a normal format of the control.
