Oven takes a long time to preheat

My oven takes a very long time to preheat. Sometimes it takes 30 minutes or longer to go from 100 degrees to 200 and up to an hour to get to 350.

    I have the same problem, but, it can take an hour or longer to preheat and sometimes, never heats to the needed tempurature!! Have you repaired your problem? If so, how? Thank you

    Similar problem-would set oven to preheat with either convection bake, convection roast or bake and 15 minutes later it would still read 100 degrees with the oven still ice cold. Began to ignite a stove top burner after I had set the oven for preheating and, after running it for 30-60 seconds, the oven ignites then the temp starts rising pretty quickly.

You don't list a full model number or how old this range is, or how long / how often you have this problem, but generally it sounds like the oven ignitor is not quite drawing enough amps to allow the gas valve to open regularly. It could be a low voltage related issue, but most likely is a failing oven ignitor. ( WB2X9154)

Whirlpool gold oven

One must preheat the oven to the desired baking temperature. If the oven is turned on and the food immediately put in to bake, it will take longer to bake the first batch than the second and subsequent batches, because the oven need a few minutes to heat up.

In other words, the oven isn't at 350 degrees the instant you turn it on. It takes about 15 minutes for the oven to reach 350 degrees. I hope this helps.

When i turn on the oven it starts up as normal , "on" then "Preheat" then runs. About 30 minutes later both the "oven on" and the "preheat" indicator lights start blinking.

follow this test and fix it. God bless you

Oven Igniter

As the oven igniter weakens over time, it will take longer for the gas valve to open. If the oven doesn't bake evenly, it may be that the oven igniter isn't opening the gas valve when it should. This will cause the oven to cool down more than it should before the burner reignites. The oven temperature should not cool by more than 40 degrees before the oven igniter relights the burner.

Oven Control Board

The oven control board has a set of relays that turn on and off power to the bake and broil circuits according to the customer settings and sensor input. If the oven won't heat the problem is usually with the heating components. However, if the oven control board is bad, it might not send voltage to the heating components. To determine why the oven won't heat, first test the simpler components in the circuit. The oven control board can't be tested easily and will have to be replaced if it is defective.

Frigidaire gallery stove

Hello Debbie - Sounds like the unit has loss some of its heat inside of the oven cavity. This means it cannot reach the proper preheat temperature in the programmed 30 minute timeframe. A technician would be required to further diagnose this concern. They would most likely assess the convection heating element, thermal cutout, thermal oven sensor and all wired connections for repairs. Lastly the oven cavity and insulation should be checked to ensure there are no gaps or damages that will leak out the heat. At t his time, I would recommend contacting a professional to assist you further.

My Frigidaire electric oven only heats up to 100 degrees. Please help?

Contact a technician. The ignition and gas valves should allow the unit to preheat and then reach needed temperature within about 30 minutes, at the most.

Don't have the instructions on how to clean the oven


Not to worry - cleaning your oven is not the all-day chore it used to be.

1.Remove oven racks and soak them in soapy water.

2.Turn on your automatic oven cleaner; this usually entails locking the door and turning the function switch to "clean.

3."Let the oven do its work; it will heat for several hours, charring off baked-on foods.
easy process

1.Remove oven racks and place them in soapy water to soak.

2.Preheat oven to 200 degrees.

3.Turn the oven off and spray the inside with oven cleaners.

4.Allow to sit for 10minutes.

5. Wipe the cleaner and dirt away with a damp sponge, rinsing frequently.

6.Dry with a soft cloth.

Please do any of this carefully.

thank you and thanks for using fixya.

    Preheating Oven

    Cold Stove, you may not be able to. The issue here is that oven manufactures put on their units a fast preheat. However it isn't possible to preheat an oven for 7 to 9 minutes and bake short time bake items properly. Also the oven sensor will respond faster than the absorbation rate of the sheet metal in the oven liner. To preheat an oven properly takes 15 to 20 minutes before putting in the food. I see this will a lot of current ovens. Sounds like a normal format of the control.

    Oven takes up to 25 min. to preheat

    I would suggest looking at how long before the bake burner ignites. If taking longer than 5 minutes before it ignites, then you are looking at a possible bad ignitor. The ignitors just don't last more than 5 yrs with regular use.

    Preheat taking long time

    If your oven has the hidden bake element then it is probably working properly. A standard oven with an exposed bake element will usually take about 12-15 minutes to preheat. The hidden element models take a little longer but they usually heat a little more evenly.
    Post back if you have any more questions.
