HELP!

My rental has a Frigidaire range (FGF316BSB) and my tenant reported that it doesn't get hot enough. When I first investigated, I noticed that it wasn't heating-up all the way and replaced the oven thermostat. I thought that fixed the problem, but actually, the tenant just forgot to tell me it didn't me until she needed to bake a birthday cake. She then also informed me that it heats up to the desired temperature, but doesn't maintain the temperature throughout her baking time.

Today, I looked in to the problem again and I note that the oven ignitor comes on and gets red hot for up to about 3-5 minutes before the oven actually lights. This got me to thinking that perhaps the problem is the oven safety valve (part #3203459) in that it heats-up the oven to the desired temp, but then doesn't come back on quick enough to keep the oven at the proper temp through the baking cycle.

Before I sink more money in to it, I was wondering if anyone can give me some tips on how to test my theory or other components and any other advice.

Thanks in advance!

Very often oven igniter can be bad even if it does glow.
