Electrolux oven takes forever to preheat

We just got the brand new Electrolux EW30ES65G dual oven. I love everything about it except that it takes forever to preheat. Tonight it took over 20 minutes to get to 425.

    Hi - I just had my Electrolux Icon double wall oven installed and the pre-heat problem is even worse. It took over an hour to get up to 350 and when I used the rapid pre-heat, it took about 35-40 minutes.

    Did your problem get resolved? I am anxious to know, because I think this is a deal breaker. At the amount of money these things cost, this is unacceptable performance.

    Thanks,
    MP

    Do all of them take this long to preheat? I don't know what the rapid pre-heat is - mine must not have it.

some of the newer ranges only pre-heat using one element. this gives them a better energy saving rating

SOURCE: Takes to long to Preheat

the burner element iside the oven(the rod that glow,s orange) is burned out,even though it glows and the oven is warm,the element is worn out and has to be replaced,unplug the oven,shutt off gas supply to oven,pull off back cover youll see the rod coming thru each end of the rod will have 1 wire unplug the wire off the clip,go back to the inside the oven follow the rod to the back youll see 2 screws holding the rod unscrew and pull rod thru,easy job and elements arent exspensive,but make sure to unplug oven,and shut off gas

SOURCE: my Delonghi gas oven takes nearly 45 minutes to preheat!

I would be suspicious of the thermostat. It or the sensing element may have failed.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.





Thanks for using FixYa - a 4 THUMBS rating is appreciated for answering your FREE question.

Preheating?


Standard problem with this unit sorry to tell you! I've worked on several.The main oven would take 20-22 minutes to pre-heat, even on the "rapid pre-heat setting". I was told by Electrolux techs that it is the way the range is designed because of the "hidden element." Very sorry to tell you I found this model to just be very Unreliable. To many issues......

My electrolux dual fuel range had to have the control panel replaced within the first 6 months, now it is out again, this time not under warranty and will cost me about $800. Has anyone else had this


Hi katnbiff - This is typically something that a professional would need to diagnose. Possible causes could be a faulty EOC (electronic oven control), thermostat, or an oven sensor.

My oven takes forever to heat up if it does at all


If it's a gas range and you can see the ignitor glow, but there is no flame within 90 seconds after you turned the oven on - replace ignitor.

Oven takes forever to preheat


The way the oven works is like so:
1) User sets the desired temperature
2) Power is sent to the ignitor
3) The ignitor is then energized, drawing 3.2 amps of current
4) When the 3.2 amps is drawn, the gas safety valve is allowed to open and gas flows into the burner assembly in the oven.
5) This gas is then ignited, causing the oven to heat.
6) As the oven heats up, the oven sensor, which is the metal rod located at the top on the rear oven wall, converts the heat into an electrical signal, relaying this information to the main control which in turns displaying the temperature.
(In models with a dial thermostat, there won't be a sensor, though a metal wire with a bulbous end will be present, which is actually connected to the thermostat.)

Takes forever for my oven to preheat to 400*. 25 minutes or so. Oven is brand new.


A brand new oven should work. You should not tinker with a brand new oven. A brand new oven that is malfunctioning is probably under warranty and should be repaired under that warranty.

Viking is the Rolls Royce of kitchen equipment. Call your installer or builder or Viking for service for your brand new oven.

Thanks for your question @ FixYa.com

Problem with oven preheating


Hi, I'm Neil
It is a fire hazard! Be Careful!
It's a gas regulator or thermostat
This time you will have to call the the manufacturer for service!
If it's under a year old ,your under warranty and it will not cost you anything!

Please give me a solution rating here!
Thank You
Neil
