Gas oven does not heat properly

If you have a glow-bar ignition, it cycles off the thermostat- be it a manuel thermostat or a electronic control with a sensor in oven. The ignitor will come on and the valve works off amps. it will pull between 3.2- 3.6 amps before the valve opens and lets gas in to the burner. If it only gets 325 deg., I would say it has to do with the themostat-electronic control. Do you know the model number ? I can tell more by looking it up.

I have a Tappan Series 100 gas range/oven.  The oven does not heat properly, usually tops out about 325 when I have it set to 500, but will keep temperature regulated ie. the gas does cycle on and off like it thinks its at right temperature.  Ive done some research and they recommend testing the ignitor as well, but if it was the ignitor not opening properly would the gas still cycle on and off like it thinks it has reached the right temp.  Appreciate the help.
