Maytag propane Gas Range Problem (Oven Not Heating Up Properly)

Maytag propane Gas Range Problem (Oven Not Heating Up Properly)
Model Number: MGR5875QDS

I have a Maytag propane gas range and I am having a problem with my oven.
The stove top burners seem to be working fine.

The unit has the digital screen on the front. When you turn the oven on, and let's say you set it to bake at 400 degrees, sometimes it will stay at 100 degrees for a long time and not heat up or other times it may only get to 320 degrees and top out there.
It also takes over 45 minutes to get to that temp.

Has anyone out there had a similar experience? I would greatly appreciate some feedback and would like to fix this problem myself.

In addition I also have other propane appliances in my house (water heaters) and I am not having problems with them working or supplying propane to those units.

Welcome to the forums.

The link you left was a similar problem to yours and it could be the oven temp sensor or the ignitor. I have seen both problems cause the same symptoms.

In the link below are the parts in question for your unit. Within each of those parts listings is a video that describes test procedures. If you don't want to or can't perform the tests then replace the ignitor first.
