What part is likely having problems? We turn it off waited and reset it twice, still never got over 280

OK so generally when the oven takes too long to heat, it means that your bake element itself has failed, but it could be the relay board as well so you need to test. The oven will still heat on bake because the broil element is turned on at 30% to help preheat the oven faster. But the bake element should be on 100% of the time and if it's not---it will take forever to heat up and won't reach the desired temperature. You need to turn the circuit breaker off to the oven and then remove the bake element. Test continuity and if it's open -- replace it. If it for some reason does have continuity, that means your relay control board has a bad bake relay and the board above the oven would have to be replaced.
