Default Electric oven slow to heat up

The oven part of a GE Profile freestanding electric range takes almost an hour to come up to a 350 or 400 degree temperature. The temp indicator on the console shows that the set temperature has been achieved in about 15 minutes but the obvious lack of heat when opening the door and three different oven thermometers say otherwise. Any ideas what the cause could be before service is called?

I'll get the model number from my daughter ASAP and post it. Bake and broil do glow red. I thought possibly a faulty hidden element might be the culprit but that doesn't address the issue of the temp indicator showing it up to temp when it obviously isn't. More to follow.
