Question about Kitchen Ranges
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.

You have a problem with your oven temp. sensor. Remove it and check it at room temp. It should meter out at 1 to 1.1K ohms. If it doesn't replace it.

They have a thermal overload resistor in the burner itself and they have a propensity to burn out, or it could be the infinite switch. You will have to check resistance across the leads that correspond to each pinout. You can find this out by backtracing the wire to each terminal on the block. Replacement of either part is the only option, there are no safe alternatives to repair them. Hope this helps. BTW, you can go here for parts.
