Whistling oven

We have a 1999 Frigidaire Gallery "professional series" gas range with oven and warming drawer. Recently we had noticed it being slow to light and sometimes not lighting resulting in strong gas smell in the house. Now it is still slow to light, but has begun making a loud high pitch whistling noise that reduces in volume after it has been lit for a couple of minutes. Any ideas?

The hot suraface ignitor is getting weak. It's not letting enough current through to fully open the oven safety resulting in delayed ignition and gas odors.
