Question about Frigidaire PLCS389DC Dual Fuel (Electric and Gas) Kitchen Range

1 Answer

Preheat gets to temp but oven drops 20 d+/- after food goes in. Is this normal

My new oven when preheated (not using the convection setting) gets to proper temperature, but when food is put in the temperature in the oven drops approx. 20 degrees. I tested with an oven thermostat after a chicken recipe I made (following temperature and times to the letter) came out pretty raw. Is this normal for a convection/regular oven?

You may have already solved this but either your convection motor is not on or you have an air leak. I would get the repair man out since it is probablt still under warranty.

Hi Guys,

What model have you got? I have one that I have owned for well over a year now with absolutely no problems. In fact I would have to say for the $119 I paid for it, it has been the bargain of the century so far.

My model is CAS048 and to preheat it is very simple. You set the press the convection oven button to set the temp you want (i.e 180 deg) and push start. The oven will operate until it has warmed up at which time it will beep 3 times. Open the door and put your food in and set the time you wish it to cook and you are away!

P.S, mine will shut off automatically after a few minutes of reaching it's set temperature if I don't open the door and set the timer on it, so it pays to have your food ready or close to ready when you set it to preheat as it warms up quite fast.

The oven preheats, but then "cools down" before I


Most likely the problem is your bake element. When the oven is preheating it uses both the bake and the broil element. When it's done preheating it uses only the bake element, so the broil element is heating it up, and since the bake element is not working the temperature drops until it starts preheating again.

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.

Amana Convection oven not controlling temp


I have just checked the baking guide in the manual and have found that it may not be us after all. (Maybe this is why they telll us to read the whole manual. Well, I never have) According to the cooking time for Baking, the range is very extensive. For example, an angel cake at 350 could take from 28-50 minutes, buscuits at 375-400 could take 8-16 minutes, layer cakes at 350-375 could take 25-40 minutes, pound cakes at 325-350 could take 45-70 minutes and fresh pies at 400-450 could take 35-60 minutes. Basically, the baking directions on the box means absolutely nothing to use Amana oven owners. We have no choice but to cook our food or baked goods until they are cooked, whenever that may be. :) Linda

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.
