Hi
Thanks for using FixYa. From what you have described it seems to be an oven temperature sensor circuit failure. To resolve this issue you'll have to check the oven temp. sensor circuit if the reading is more then 1100ohms then it should be replaced however, if the rating is fine then it is the electronic control that has gone bad & should be replaced. Please accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.

Thanks
Rylee

I am going to need some information in order to fully diagnose the problem with the oven.

The oven should be blinking a fault code. It will be an F followed by a number. Example, F1. Which is the code for a stuck key pad. The solution for this is to try all of the buttons and see if one un-sticks.

Please look at the display and tell me if it shows an error code so I can tell you what they oven is saying the problem is with.

Thank you for the opportunity to help you.

    Okay. Code PF is simply, "Power Failure". So presumably you lost power recently. To clear the code, press and hold the Clear/Off button until it clears the code.

    Try to preheat the oven again.

    If the still fails to preheat, then you may have gotten a power surge that may have damaged the electronic control unit.

    If the unit give you a code other then "PF" please let me know.

    I hope this information is helpful. Thanks again for allowing me to assist you.

Why oven cools automatically after preheat


Others are having problems with this unit. Have the manufacturer support their product and fix it. It should be covered if it is new. Don't delay in hounding them. Time will expire and you will be left with an expensive ordeal.

Oven temp heats higher than set


The control board is bad. One of the relays has fused and you will need to replace the control board.

I tried to cook a frozen pizza in my Tappan electric range last night (which required it to be preheated to 400 degrees) and it would not preheat at all, even after about a 3 hour wait. I just turned up...

befor you actually order the part take the unit out
unplug it
and inspect your wire connections to both sides of the element

My oven, model 38HN-6TVW won't preheat


I was unable to get the full model to come up. I was able to get a Magic chef range to come up. I would replace the control and oven thermostat.

Seems to be taking a long time to cook


To preheat oven just select the temp you intend to cook at and wait until the red light goes out,it is then preheated
Then you can put your food in and carrying on cooking.
Yes you do put it on fan symbol, but make sure it is on the right one , as some ovens have fan only as well as fan and heat.
Plz rate this solution.
thanks.

Oven not working properly


I just solved this problem with my GE gas range. I waited forever for the oven to warm up. The igniter would glow, light the burner and burn for a minute or so and go out. It would repeat this process till oven reached operating temp, which took forever. Problem is in the igniter. It may be glowing, but it is not letting the gas valve stay open, because it is not hot enough to create resistance in it to keep gas valve open. I had replaced the thermostat thinking it was the problem. The good part about it was I could take it back because my buddy works at supply house. Once the igniter was replaced, the oven fired up and stayed lit till operating temp was reached. It will also hold the oven temp much better. Oh yea, the igniter will stay glowing while the burner is on. Hope this helps.
