Re: my oven take forever to preheat
Your bake element is probably open. When this happens the broil element may heat slightly when in BAKE mode and that is where your heat is coming from. First thing I would check is the connections to the bake element as well as the element itsef.

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.
This clicking sound.. If it is coming from the control panel area could be indicative of a relay that is malfunctioning. For giggles try the oven on just broil. See if the upper element comes on and stays on, or if it too shuts down. If it stays on then you most likely have a bad control board. If it shuts off like the bake element and does not come back on, I would carefully inspect your power cord and cord connections as well as the range outlet. Good luck!
is this a duel fuel with an electric oven..... the bake is the bottom and the broil is the top both cycle on and off to preheat the oven.... if ur lower bake element is burnt out then u woould expereicnce the problem u stated..... if u have a gas oven then ur ignitor or glow bar is probably burnt out....... either way it sounds like your bake element or bake ignitor has failed
your bake element should get red during the preheat time and also if you leave the door open after it has preheated. if it is not that will cause your oven to not heat right. even if it looks ok, it could still be bad. unplug the oven and remove the bake element, then take it to your local parts house and they can check it for you. this is the most common problem, but it could be a problem with your oven control. try the element first.
hi Lorraine. Thanks for choosing fixya! Usually, when an oven won't bake, it's because the bake
element is burned out. The bake element is the black, pencil- thick tube at the
bottom of the oven. When the oven heats, the element glows red. This element has
an expected life-span of several years. It may last for only one; it may last
for many more. When the element burns out, you need to replace it.
