My natural gas Jenn Air has side by side ovens, one regular size on the right and the smaller one on the left. My wife and granddaughter tried to bake a pound cake at 350 degrees.
It was supposed to take only 1:15 hours but it took 2:15 hours and the cake was a disaster. I removed the access panel at the stove/range bottom exposing the burners and igniters. I placed a temp probe in the main oven to check the temp. It got to 350 in 33 mins, but it would not maintain the set temp, it cooled down to 220 degrees. The igniter would glow but no flame. What should I check?

Hi,

Usually when this happens the problem is the oven igniter glow bar has worn out. When you first turn the oven ON the oven igniter glow bar should glow orange for about 45 seconds then the gas should fire up. If its taking over 60 seconds, then that's the problem.

Here's the oven igniter glow bar for your model you can order:
