I have a gas oven that is not heating up very quickly. Igniter glows and starts flame but, the flame stays the same size no matter the temperature, even on broil. I replaced the igniter and still does the same thing. Amperage is good going to the igniter. I am leaning towards the gas valve but understand they do not wear out very often. Thermostat and temp sensor seem to be working because they will shut oven off and on. Also, I have an identical stove sitting next to it, the flame size is considerably different from stove to stove. Am I missing anything.

Applianceman97, that is a great idea but I am 30 minute drive away from this house. It was my bad for not taking one while I was there. The best way I can describe the two different flames. The one that does not heat is concentrated right above burner tube and about 1 inch to either side. The one that does heat spreads out across the bottom, probably 3-4 inches on either side. I am for sure kicking myself for not taking a picture.

How much yellow was in the flames?

How long is it taking to pre heat!

Sounds to me like you may just need to open the adjustable oven orifice on the oven gas valve, (maybe tightened all the way down for LP gas and someone is now using on Natural).

 

Has this been working OK and this is now a new problem or is this a range that someone just picked up somewhere and installed and really don't know anything about its previous use?

 

If nothing has changed and it was previouosly working correctly and now not, I would check the orifice for gookus build up in the orifice hood causing a lower flow/volume of gas to burner.
