Preheat taking long time

We just purchased a slide in kenmore electric range.  When I preheat the oven to 350 it takes 20 minutes.  Is this normal?  or should I call to have it repaired?  The oven seems to work properly, food cooks completely once the oven is heated to the right temp.  Please help.  Danielle

    We have just purchased the Kenmore Elite smoothtop range Model # C970-440984. The time to preheat to 350 is over 30 minutes. We have been told it is because the voltage to our condo comes in at 205ish and that the oven has not been "converted" to handle this voltage from the 240 volts and once done by a Tech at the back of the oven all will be well. The manual with the oven says that it handles either 208 or 240 so am I getting a story here and that this is the way the oven preheats over a looong time?

    Any remedy would be welcome as Christmas is coming and the turkey may have to go in now!

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.

My Jenn Air JGS8850 takes over 10 minutes to preheat to, say, 400*. Is this normal?


Hi,

In a word...Yes !

10 min. is actually a really great preheat time. I have many customers who would kill for that kind of preheat, most are between 15-20 minutes minimum to 350 degrees celcius, especially with the introduction of hidden bake elements in the last 10-15 years.

Hope that is helpful,

Good Luck :)

Preheat issue with a new kenmore electric range


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 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.

Bake part of kenmore not working seems to take to long


Chances are the oven ignitor will need to be replaced.  Look and see if it glows.  If it does then it is weak and not opening the gas valve to lite.  Let me know what you find.
Comment by fridgetech, posted on Oct 20, 2007

Should be able to remove the bottom drawer and unplug the ignitor from below.  Or you can cut the wires on the old ignitor and splice the new one in using ceramic

times quoted seem about right and don't suppose your old oven was much different. element ratings don't vary much for same size ovens
