GAS. My wife had tin foil covering under rack in top oven Could this hinder ?

Expert:  Appliance Guru replied 1 year ago.
It could cause an issue as it would not allow the heat to flow correctly, but most likely you may have a bad ignitor in the top oven. They go bad after awhile and cause the unit not to heat up fast at all.

Does it light up with a good flame withing 30-60 seconds? If not you have an ignition issue.
