Question about Kenmore 46582 Electric Kitchen Range
Kenmore Oven Preheat Set 350 Hand Thermometer Indicates 275, but stove beeps to early
Model Number: 790.46582500 Brand: Kenmore Age: 2 years
White Kenmore 30 In" Electric Self Clean Slide-In Range Model #46584
Up until a week a go the Ovenhad been working fine.
This model has a preheat indicator which beeps 3 times when the correct preheated temperature is reached.
Placing a thermometer in the stove reveals a temperature of 275 degrees, when the expected preheat temperature beeping should be 350 degrees.
The oven then continues to keep heating to 350 degrees and then the temperature is maintained at 350 degrees.
Something is giving a false indication that the preheat temperature is reached.
SOURCE: Preheat taking long time
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.

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

If I understand it is working just no lighting the preheat lamp? May just be a burned out lamp. Connect a jumper from any of the other indicators to the preheat. If it lights there is a problem in the oven control/thermostat. If it does not light when the other lamp you connected to it lights, it is the lamp.

SOURCE: oven won't heat up
Hi. This sounds like a weak igniter, the symptoms usually are: burner won't light, or takes longer than normal to ignite the burner, may or may not smell gas in the oven, does not maintain set temperature or burner does not come on fully. On gas ovens, a glo igniter is like a light bulb, the more you cook, the faster it wears out. Bottom line, needs to be replaced. Good luck.
