Re: Oven temperature

Replace the bake igniter in the bottom of the oven. It corrodes over time and as the resistance increases it finally reaches a point where the voltage is two low to open the gas valve. It's a ten minute job and the part cost $45-65.

Re: Oven temperature

I have the same problem with mine. It just started a few days ago. I would turn the oven on, and it would take forever to heat up. The gas flame has been making a lot of noise when lighting and when going out. I removed the bottom plate in the oven and have found that the gas is not coming on. It would after a while, and occasionally. But not when called for. Either it needs a new valve, or the electronics are messed up. I will have to look into it. may have to call someone to fix it. If you find the solution please let me know.

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.)

Oven Pre-heats too high

Your oven sensor has gone bad and telling the control board/thermostat to keep heating. Find the model number on the range and go to a parts distributor like or and order you sensor. This is an easy repair.

Oven taking very long time to hit temperature. set at 400 it takes forever (1/2 hour) then gets stuck at 398

Replace the oven ignitor. (they get weak after a period of time, and will give those results, or stop heating altogether)

Hotpoint gas oven

This is an indication of low gas pressure to the oven. This condition may improve when other gas equipment is turned off and worsen when demands increase such as during cold periods where heating plants are running. Contact your local gas company to check pressures at the burners and adjust the incoming pressure to the oven accordingly.

If your electric2_bing.gif oven is not heating then you probably have a bad heating element in your oven. This is not that hard to fix yourself...

It sounds as if you might have a problem with the gas valve for the oven. This is something that I would not reccomend that you try and fix yourself.
