Question about Candy Ovens
Our electric built in Candy P6N is over 3 years old and now never seems to get as hot as it should do. It now takes longer to cook things and although it still heats up, it never reaches max temperature.
Any ideas ?

SOURCE: taking way too long to heat
Usually when an oven is slow to heat, it is because of a bad element. You can look at the upper (broil) and lower(bake) and see if they appear to have any major burn marks on them, It may just look like something spilled on it untill you look closer or try to clean it off. if you do not find any obvious problems, turn the oven on and wait a fem minutes, then see if the bake element is glowing. Also look at the broil element, they should both be glowing at least a little orange. Compare how it works to the other oven that works properly. If only one of your elements is glowing, either you have a bad element (which is usually apparent on visual inspection) or a bad relay board that controls the element. The element is easy to change, onlt a couple screws and 2 wires (turn off the breaker first!!), the relay board is pricey, and a pain in the tookas. if you decide to guess, try the element first. Hope this is at least a little helpful.

This may be the thermostat control.
I would find someone to check the resistance of the element with an ohm meter.
It should read 15 to 20 ohms.
Put the timer on manual first and try the oven, because it could be the timer.
It would be ok to just replace the bottom oven element because most of the time it is a faulty element.

Probably. There is often a key sequence that will enable a calibration mode. We need the full model number to find the tech info, or you can probably find it in the tech sheet which is normally taped on behind the control panel.

Either the seals need to be replaced, or you may have weak oven door hinges, and the door is not closing properly.
Only solution would be to replace both hinges if this is the case.
Please rate my solution.
