My JGBP85WEA3WW GE Profile Gas oven takes a long time to get to temperature.  It takes about 30 minutes to get to 350.  If set it 400, it never gets there.  I checked the temp sensor with a DMM and it looks good (~1100 ohms). 

Any ideas?

Look at the size of the burner flame, make sure it is long enough on each side to go up the sides of the spreader.  You might have a flame that is just too low to do nuch heating in the oven.

Is the burner even firing up?  Have you laid eyeballs upon the pure blue flame?  It may fire up initially but then take too long to re-ignite, causing temperature in the oven to drop.  This is a sign of a bad ignitor.  As Kdog said, you need to measure the ignitor current draw.  More help on that here:

Thanks! You nailed it. Igniter was bad.  I replaced it and the stove is as good as new.
