If it's a gas oven and has an electric element starter (glows orange to ignite the gas), the element can be taking a long time to heat up, which means the oven doesn't light for a while and so seems to lake a long time warming up. If you turn it on and then look at the area where the flame should be (broiler) and the flame takes a long time this could be the problem. This happened to me and replacing the element fixed it. Now the flames light within 30 second or so.
Hi I find that oven pride painted on the inside of the oven and left for several hours works wonders, put shelves etc in the plastic bag supplied - shake - and leave for a few hours also. This was a much better product than the lakeland version.K
The oven wont unlock until the inside is at a certain temperature, to prevent you from burning yourself with the convective heat, or worse, the fire spreading to outside the oven. Once the flame runs out of oxygen inside, the flames will go out. But the oven may not unlock for a few hours at the most.
A lot of the time, particularly if you haven't got a manual, it is trial and error. I normally turn the oven to on. I then watch the oven indicator light as I manipulate the timer buttons/controls. It sometimes takes 5 to 10 minutes. Just try all different combinations.
Hi, If your electric oven is not heating then you probably have a bad heating lelement in your oven. This is not that hard to fix yourself... Check out this tip that I wrote about the Oven not heating problem..
hey mate i have had this problem with my oven, they get moisture in them. Turn it off at the power point for a few hours or before you go to bed and turn it back on the next morning and it should be fine. that should get the moisture out. hope this helps. Keeno in OZ

Oven temp sensors sense the temperature is the oven cavity and the temp sensor changes resistance, this change in ohm resistance tells the oven control what temperature the oven cavity at and tells the control to shut off the element or turn it back on. The most common temp sensors used today ( *not all ) are approx 1000-1100 ohm resistance at room temperature ( 70�F ) Some ohm readings and there temperature: Degrees F - Resistance 100 - 1143 ohms 200 - 1350 ohms 300 - 1553 ohms 350 - 1654 ohms 400 - 1753 ohms 500 - 1949 ohms
your ignitor could be going out. the ignitor has to get hot enough in order for the gas to turn on and heat your oven. if your ignitor is going out, sometimes it doesn't glow hot enough for the gas to turn on, or it could be that is takes longer than normal to get hot enough to turn the gas on. I would replace the ignitor and that should solve the problem. Joe
The fan only comes on in the back of the oven when convecting and Automaticaly turns off when you open the door. The exhaust fan coming from the front stays on for qutie a while, maybe 2 hours or so till the oven cools. I think it is just a function of the oven. A good thing in the winter but uses a bunch of airconditioning in the summer
