We've had this oven for about 10 years. I've replaced the ignitors once already and thought that was the problem again, but I see they are both firing. The issue is that it takes a loooong time to cook stuff. I'm thinking that the thermostat is busted (e.g. I set it to 300 and it thinks 200 or something).

Looking for repair manual and advice on what to check with my multimeter to solve problem. Thanks.

(Ps. I placed a request for the repair manual in that section of the forums.)

glow Ignitors get weak and won't draw enough (series) current to open the Gas Safety Valve
Measure for 3.0 A after about 30 seconds... anywhere in the series circuit or at the Gas Valve
