Yeh, and what about putting new brake pads on a vehicle for one axle $150-$250. The pads can be bought for $20-$30.
Yes cheap pads are 20-30 but any mechanic who is going to pad slap isn't a real mechanic.

@CountValentine
 I changed the ignitor around a year ago, now this person does heavy baking, like real heavy baking, oven is always on.

 Does it make sense that the ignitor is shot already?

 The Symptoms are...
It's just not working well- it takes much longer to get to the temperature setting and takes much longer to bake- I also hear little sounds of sputtering when it's on.
Don't try to be someone else , be who you are because everyone else is taken.

Would not suspect the ignitor. Have you looked at the flames to see what they look like?

What's your take?
 It's no biggy to change the ignitor, take me 3 min and have a few floating around the house but don't want to waste my time removing old and putting in new if that's not the problem.

If you have them laying around I would try that first. Always worth a shot.
My guess is gas valve.
I would look at the flames.

Should be many YouTube videos on how to check different valves.

It wasn't in my home, hence for the questionnaire.
 My relative was telling me I changed it already, but in the end it was another stove that was changed while the fleishig(meat) oven was never changed, tested it for 5 minutes, looked like it was running nice and strong. Let's hope that was the issue, will hear back from them over the weekend how it went. (Changed the igniter in the end.)
 But yes the oven is really dirty filled with dirt and dust, gave a quick cleaning and attached new igniter.

Washing machine is filled with some black dirt, I tried some cleaning solutions, but none seem to help, the dirt comes back with every new load. Any ideas where the dirt comes from and how to get rid of it.
