Why does my kenmore gas oven take so long to preheat?

The oven takes about 1.5 hours to preheat. Is this true? To open the oven gas valve, the igniter needs enough current/amperage. It will take a while to open the gas valve when it gets weak. If you replace the glow bar igniter, your oven will work again.
