Bake part of kenmore not working seems to take to long

I have a kenmore gas oven the bake part of the oven seems to take a long time to preheat . I'm not sure how long the oven is suppose to take to reach 350 but it seems that it is taking forever. I just installed a new regulator and the broil seems to work fine, when I turn on the broil the temperature starts 100 and goes slow to 150 which takes about 6mins. and then I get a gas smell so I turn it off because i'm not sure of how long it's suppose to take to preheat and to reach 350

    I just moved into a home with a Kenmore oven (using propane.) The first time I tried to bake anything, it took forever for the oven to preheat and it never did fully warm up -- however, the house filled with propane smell. I called the propane company and they replaced the ignition. After they left, I tried it...and discovered that it now took a shorter time to go from preheat to bake and the oven does now achieve temperature, however, during the preheat phase the propane smell is so bad I have to open the window. Once it achieves temperature, the smell dissipates. I called the propane company again and they said that there is nothing wrong with the oven and that particular model "just does that." However, everyone else says I should never smell propane -- and especially not that strong for that long a time.

    Please help!

    My JennAir double oven takes forever to preheat itself. I'm wondering if the electrician connected it properly.

Chances are the oven ignitor will need to be replaced.  Look and see if it glows.  If it does then it is weak and not opening the gas valve to lite.  Let me know what you find.

Should be able to remove the bottom drawer and unplug the ignitor from below.  Or you can cut the wires on the old ignitor and splice the new one in using ceramic

What the problem is when your gas oven ignitor glows,but no heat for the...

MessageRate.ThreadID = 9947539; MessageRate.ProductID = 0;

The problem beleive it or not is that the bake ignitor is weak ,and it is not drawing the proper amprage to open the gas valve.If you have a amp meter access the wires to the bake ignitor(usually behind the storage drawer) and check for 3.3-3.6 amps when oven is set to bake by clamping the meter around ONE wire wire of ignitor make sure only one wire,either one and not both.
if amp draw less than 3.3-3.6 amps replace bake ignitor. I know it seems improbable that if the ignotor comes on that it could be the problem.Professional appliance technicians who would charge a average of $250.00 to repair your oven,have found when the ignitor comes on yet the oven won't heat that a weak ignitor is the cause 100% of the time

KitchenAid gas range superba not reaching/registering right temp.


Always preheat your oven and let it cycle at least 2 times. Your unit may show 350 but the manufactures know that it is not 350. When it registers preheated, it really means that it is at an acceptable temperature to start cooking. If you think that it may not be calibrated correctly, your owner's manual will have instructions on how to recalibrate your oven. You will be able to raise or lower the temperature by + 25 degrees or - 25 degrees. As far as the gas smell, you will from time to time smell a gas smell with a gas oven especially if you are right at it when it ignites. If you are smelling gas when it is not in use then you should be extremely concerned.

It sounds like you have some condensation in your gas lines.
The fact that it only does this when preheating kind of reinforces that suspicion.

By the time the oven has reached temperature setting, the bit of moisture has been either blown or baked out of the system.

Steam clouding the window would confirm this or if don't have one, you clould put a shiny pot into the oven and check it for condensation after a few minutes while the popping is taking place.

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.
