Frigidaire oven will not hold temp

I have a Frigidaire gas stove model # fgf316asb. I have had this stove for at least 8 years. The oven turns on great but say I turn the thermo to 400 it will warm up to that temp but when I place the food in the oven it seems hot but over time and when I check the food it is not warm. The food or the oven. I can even turn up the themo up to broil and it will not warm up. I'm thinking it is the themo going bad. Can I get some help on how to check to see if it is themo or what I need to do. Thank you in advance...

Welcome to the forums.

I moved your post from the electric appliances to the gas repair forums.

It could be one of several problems. The most likely one would be the igniter. The igniter glows and then when it reaches a certain point it will allow the gas valve to open. You would need to lift up the access panel that covers the burner. It the igniter stays on for 90 seconds without the burner lighting then it's most likely defective.

In the link is a picture of your part along with one of many parts suppliers.
