The oven gets up to temperature and then the temp just falls. It's very erratic (sometimes it works). Could it be the temp sensor or the ignitor? Also the temperature lights stay on. If I reset the lights then it seems to work better.

Probably the RTD is going bad. That is a resistive temperature device. It changes resistance over temp and feeds a voltage back to the oven controller telling it that the oven set temp has been reached. If you are not reaching your temperature then I would suspect the RTD.
The oven sensor (
WB21X5301) is suppose to tell the oven control when to turn on and off to reach and maintain oven temp, but before you go replacing it, try to observe how long it takes from the time you turn the oven on to the time the oven ignites. Ignition should be 30 seconds to about 90 seconds. If it is taking a very long time, replace the igniter (
). Ignitors get weaker over time, and this should be looked at first, as both parts are not real cheap, so you don't want to just start throwing parts at it. Here is a trick you can try: On the JGBP90 (model you posted under) the broil ignitor is the same part number as the oven ignitor, so if the broiler, which is generally used much less than the oven, is working fine you can interchange the two ignitors to see if that solves your oven temp problem without having to buy a oven temp sensor first.
check your Measure oven temperature sensor circuit at oven temperature sensor (should be approx 1100 ohms at room temp); check for cut or pinched wire or loss of contact
and /or Replace Electronic Range Control (ERC)
