Unfortunately this issue sounds like your oven igniter is just beginning to get weak. The igniter needs to draw 3.2 amps or more to open the oven gas safety valve properly. If it doesn't draw enough power, the valve may open and close, or eventually it may not open at all. Most igniters last about 6-8 years. Either way, below is a link to the igniter you'd need to order and replace which is mounted to the back of your broil burner inside your oven. It costs about $65.
