Question about Microwave Ovens

1 Answer

When I preheat the oven it takes an hour to reach 200 degrees. Is this normal? I am sure it was a lot quicker than this.

An hour to go from room temperature to 200 degrees F (or even C for that matter) is unacceptable.

There is a problem with either a control, sensor or heating element. You should have this oven serviced to restore it to proper working order.

I want to know how long to dry herbs. There is a drying setting on the oven


You dry at 200 degrees. Anything higher will destroy the flavor of the herb. Usually it takes 4 to 6 hours or until the leaves are dry. Then put them in a blender to chop them up to a fine consistency. I sun dry my basil instead of oven drying. I have a dehydrator , but it takes 24 or more hours to dry them so I don't use it much.

They never do ! You have to check the temp at where the air comes out of the fan and you need to use a remote electronic thermometer.

HELLO.

The first wayout is to consider WARRANTY.If the microwave is under warranty return it to the point of purchase to enjoy warranty right.But if the microwave is not under warranty another wayout is needed.

    15 yr-old GE electric oven takes over an hour to preheat to 450


    After jiggling the lower burn element the oven heated up in the normal time. Perhaps a connection had come loose.

    Built in oven takes hours to reach desired degrees set.


    There may be a problem with either the door seal or the thermostat.

    The first thing I would suggest is a hard reset. Unplug the unit for a minute or so. Then plug it back in, set the clock and try again.

    If it still fails, you can download GE owner's manuals and installation instructions here in case you don't have yours.

    Once you look it over, if you still have a problem,
    GE Customer Service is here and they should be able to help you check it or send service if you have a problem.

    Convection Preheat doesn't reach the Chosen Oven Temperature


    I would first suspect the thermister (thermistor) or a low line voltage, weak control board relay etc.

    But the service manuals will show you how to safely disassemble, test and repair the unit.

    We have the service manuals for this model and have uploaded them to our site here and here to help you.

    You will need the
    free Acrobat Reader to view or print them in case you don't have it.

    The best place to order parts for this brand is Encompass (formerly Tritronics). Or you can call them toll-free at 866-779-5835.

    Feel free to contact me directly (and please remind me of your full model number) for more information & help.
