Why does my oven take a long time to heat up?

A: The likely issue is a weak or failing oven igniter. Heat resistance igniters can lose resistance as they get hot over time and won’t send enough resistance to the gas valve to allow the main valve to come on. Most gas ovens should heat to 350-degrees in about 7-to-8 minutes.

What happens when you leave the oven on for too long?
