My Jenn Air JGS8850 takes over 10 minutes to preheat to, say, 400*. Is this normal?


Hi,

In a word...Yes !

10 min. is actually a really great preheat time. I have many customers who would kill for that kind of preheat, most are between 15-20 minutes minimum to 350 degrees celcius, especially with the introduction of hidden bake elements in the last 10-15 years.

Hope that is helpful,

Good Luck :)

I would be suspicious of the thermostat. It or the sensing element may have failed.

Takes long time to preheat oven


you can increase the sides of the flame, by opening the orifice inside the oven, the location is where the burner sits on, what supplies gas to the burner. that will speed up the time.

Oven takes a long time to preheat


You don't list a full model number or how old this range is, or how long / how often you have this problem, but generally it sounds like the oven ignitor is not quite drawing enough amps to allow the gas valve to open regularly. It could be a low voltage related issue, but most likely is a failing oven ignitor. ( WB2X9154)

Preheating Oven


Cold Stove, you may not be able to. The issue here is that oven manufactures put on their units a fast preheat. However it isn't possible to preheat an oven for 7 to 9 minutes and bake short time bake items properly. Also the oven sensor will respond faster than the absorbation rate of the sheet metal in the oven liner. To preheat an oven properly takes 15 to 20 minutes before putting in the food. I see this will a lot of current ovens. Sounds like a normal format of the control.

Oven takes up to 25 min. to preheat


I would suggest looking at how long before the bake burner ignites. If taking longer than 5 minutes before it ignites, then you are looking at a possible bad ignitor. The ignitors just don't last more than 5 yrs with regular use.

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.
