GE Profile gas oven takes forever to preheat


My GE profile gas oven takes for ever to preheat especially when you are trying to cook at 400 or above. I took the drip protector off and turned it on and the burner does light but the flame looks weak.

Ignitor could be weak not allowing gv to open all the way... these gas valves open on amps draw from the ignitor

When an ignitor is weak, the gas valve will not open. I suspect you either have a malfiunctioning pressure regulator or maybe low gas pressure coming to the house. Any other gas appliances in the house? They operate ok? I had one GE where there was an obstruction in the gas line from the gas valve to the burner [weird].
