I turn the oven to 350 degrees to preheat and it takes almost 30 t0 40 minutes to heat and sometime it is still not that out. This is not normal. I took the bottom of the oven out only..What do I need to do?
Check the BACK of your temperature knob for an adjustment. I was ready to replace my heating elements when I accidently discovered the adjustment. Made the adjustment and no more problems. My oven now stays within 4 degrees of settings.

1. Check to see if the both that Bake and Broil elements (burners) are heating up. Check the Broil element in Broil mode.
- during pre-heat the Broil element gets cycled on and off for short time durations to speed up the heating. If the Bake element is not working, then the oven will heat, but very slowly and never reach high temperature.
2. If the elements are both working, then it's possible that you have a bad temperature sensor.
- this is a temperature dependent resistance device that should measure 1080 ohms at 70 deg F (room temp).
3. If #1 and #2 are ok, then the problem is with your oven clock/control unit. We rebuild these at fixyourboard.com.
you may want to check your broil element
turn the unit on and wait a few minutes
see if you can feel the heat from the upper broiler elemnet
some model use both elements to preheat
i dont have your productiuon number so i cannot be sure with your model
14-20 mins is the industry standard for a 350 preheat...
Technician just left our house with same issue. Jenn-Air had issued a technical bulletin as the temperature probe is mounted directly to the heating element, and measures the heat of the element, not the oven. Their fix is a revised temperature probe that goes at a 90 degree angle away from the heating element.
If your temperature is consistent, just off by a set amount of degrees, there is an adjustment you can make at the control panel.
I have just checked the baking guide in the manual and have found that it may not be us after all. (Maybe this is why they telll us to read the whole manual. Well, I never have) According to the cooking time for Baking, the range is very extensive. For example, an angel cake at 350 could take from 28-50 minutes, buscuits at 375-400 could take 8-16 minutes, layer cakes at 350-375 could take 25-40 minutes, pound cakes at 325-350 could take 45-70 minutes and fresh pies at 400-450 could take 35-60 minutes. Basically, the baking directions on the box means absolutely nothing to use Amana oven owners. We have no choice but to cook our food or baked goods until they are cooked, whenever that may be. :) Linda
