Our gas oven (17 year old) now sometimes heats normally and sometimes will only get up to about 250, no matter the heat setting.  It seems to be slow to get up to temparature also.  I have replaced the thermostat but that has not corrected the problem.  Seems like slow/low heat situations are also accompanied by more gas smell at start up.  I have had the local gas company check for leaks and they find no problem, so it seems to be safe, just not always functional.

Hello, my low-heating friend.  Have you visually verified that you have a flame at the bake burner?  If not, please do so and tell us what you find.

Allahu Akbar!

This oven has one burner at the bottom (plus broiler on top) and it does get a flame.

How long does it take for the bake burner to fire from the time you set the oven to bake?  No guesses, I want a measured increment of time in seconds.
