Cold weather ovens will not heat when first turned on
Out side vented- usually below freezing-if you turn it on and set temp and wait for 20 to 60 min it usually will then warm up and work correctly if you turn it off and then back on-never have problem in summer-low hours of use

The most common issue with this is a bad IR element. When the oven is cold remove the metal rack. you will see the IR element on the bottom. turn the oven on. wait 1 min. open the door and see if the bottom element is warm at all. If the bottom element is still cold then you have a bad element.
I am having the same problem with my Dayton greenhouse thermostat, this question was posted in the wrong section...but if you find a solution I'd like to know. I am having problems with the heating thermostat as well as the cooling one.
IF THE PILOT LIGHT IS LIT BUT THE BURNERS DONT FIRE IT IS PROBABLY THE THERMOSTAT. FREEZE A LARGE OVEN PROOF BOWL FULL OF WATER PLACE IT IN THE OVEN FOR TEN MINS TO COOL THE OVEN TO BELOW ROOM TEMP AND THEN TRY THE OVEN IF IT WORKS FOR A SHORT TIME THEN STOPS CHANGE THE THERMOSTAT
If you are monitoring the oven temperature with an analog style thermometer you may actually be ok, but seeing the thermometers slow reaction time.
Some newer ovens actually do pre-heat beep prior to reaching temp in an effort to conserve eelectricity.
A good home test is to try your oven at several different temps to see if there is any variation in internal temperature. Try it one day on 300, the next at 375 and another day at 450. Give your analog style thermometer time to catch up (usually just about 15 min) and leave it on for a half an hour to see if the temp maintains.
Also Beware of aluminum foil AND THE NEW OVEN LINER MATS as they can alter oven performance bay absorbing and blocking the ovens natural heat radiation and convection air flow currents that happen in all ovens, not just convection models.
Another interesting fact is that older ovens used a thermostat in them that operated much like your thermometer and was very slow to react making the oven typically about 100 degrees hotter than where the customer set it. This was just a fact of life before the advent of electronic temperature management and became noticeable when people began trying to bake older "hand me down" recipes in the newer ovens with less than stellar results.
You can mimic the older oven performance by preheating the oven about a hundred degrees higher than called for and after it reaches temp, re-set it to the correct temperature and put the items in right away.
If you find your temperatures fluctuating ask your servicer to replace first the temp sensor and as a last resort the control board as this part is usually pretty expensive.
Good Luck with this!
if it is the upper element is smoking when in use then its usuall grease/fatty deposits that have attached itself from previous cooks.. the only way to rid is to open doors & windows then turn to max temp to burn off... 5-10 mins usually suffice dependant on quantity. looks bad initially but soon it will be heating clean again..
The Taylor oven thermometer you bought is decent at best. It is most likely the sensor inside the oven. Has your clock displayed any fault codes? F, followed by a number? Changing the sensor will probably correct the problem.
hi thanks for the question plus or minus 25 degrees is acceptable the heat will go past the set setting turn off and go below the set setting but the average temp is ok so there is nothing wrong thanks the appliance doc
turn the broil on high by itself wait a couple min. and see if it comes on. if it does the your bake element needs to be replaced or you may just have a burned wire where the bake element plugs in. just remember to turn the breaker off to the oven before trying to pull out the element
