SOURCE: Oven appears to start, takes forever to preheat,

This is what I would do: I would unplug the range and connect my test cord to your range cord. I use an ammeter along with my test cord to read the amp draw of the bake ignitor. If it cannot get above 3.5 amps I know the ignitor is bad or weak. Since the oven is working that means there is a good circuit. In order for the safety bi-metal to open the amp draw must reach 3.5 amps or better. So to me I am thinking bad ignitor. To get to it I remove the door oven racks and bottom, I then remove the flame spreader and unplug the quick connect to the ignitor. I remove the burner and ignitor and replace the ignitor on a work bench. I am too old to be bending over and trying to do any parts replacement inside an oven. LOL. I have a training film which shows how the silicone carbide ignitor works HERE. Post a model number and I may have a service manual, do not forget to rate the answer.

Oven takes forever to preheat. Only the bottom oven element comes on during preheat.


Try checking the heating elements on the top might have come loose

Upper oven takes forever to preheat


Deborah...all stoves have a row of fuses, usually under a strip cover. It sounds like one of the burner fuses have blown and needs replacing.If one is blown you would only have 110 volts on the element instead of 220 volts which would make the element only half as hot.

My oven bakes, but it takes 30 minutes to preheat



Hi friend, thank you for your post!

I know from your post that your Frigidaire oven is working but the preheat takes 30 minutes. This does sound like lengthy amount of time for preheat to be completed. From what you are describing it could be an issue with the panel, element, or thermostat. Since it could be anyone of these underlying issues I would recommend having a professional come out to diagnose your refrigerator to determine the root cause to reduce the risk of unnecessary parts. -Matt

We have a 30 in prostyle electric double wall oven - the oven takes forever to preheat and the doors do not seal tightly when they are closed.


Hello- Many ovens use spring-loaded hinges to carry the weight of the door. Over time, these springs weaken or the hinge gets bent just enough to not fully close door. The door gasket can also become flat and stiff, compounding problem. Any small gap releases heated air, and oven will not heat up properly. Replacing the door springs should solve problem.- Thanks -Ed

I have Jen Air expressions built in oven. It takes forever for the oven to preheat. What could be the problem?It is about 13 years old.


Both the broil and the bake heating elements are on during preheat. I would take a look as it appears that your broil element needs to be replaced.
