Unhappy Frigidaire oven takes 45 minutes to preheat
Model Number: FGF337AUF   Brand: Frigidaire   Age: 5 - 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


My Frigidaire oven takes at least 45 minutes to reach temp. The glow stick glows and the oven lights. It also cycles on and off, so you would think it is at correct temp. The other day, I was making stuffed shells (frozen). I put them in the oven after a 15 minute wait for preheat. The oven signaled that it had reached temp after they had been in for 40 minutes (a total of 55 minutes from when I turned it on!!). After they had been in the oven for 45 minutes (the recommended time), they were just barely warm. Sometimes, I will light one of the stovetop burners, and that seems to speed things up, but it doesn't always work. What do you think the problem is?

You would need to gain access to the burner so that you can
see how its working while the oven burner is on. Not exactly
sure how you gain access on this particular model, but it
would either be a case of removing the bottom floor cover
inside of the oven or you have to remover the storage drawer.
You then would need to observe the flame. First, does it stay
on until the thermostat clicks off? Second, how does the flame
look? The burner should put out enough flame from
each side to where it can travel up a good portion of the distance
of the metal flame spreader that sits on top of it.

Flame looks okay to me. It takes 2-3 minutes once the glow bar comes on for the flames. Then they stay on about 3 minutes and go out for a few minutes, then glow bar starts to glow again, another 2-3 minutes for flames. This goes on and on.

The next thing that needs to be established is when it goes off,
whether its because the range control itself is actually turning the burner off,
or if the range control is actually trying to keep the burner turned on
and the burner simply wont stay lit. When the burner shuts down is
it accompanied by a "click sound" coming from the clock/control area?

Yes, there is a click when it goes off, and another click when it comes back on again.

That narrows down to either the sensor or the control itself.
something you might try is to unplug the range or shut the power completely
off to the unit for about an hour and see if this makes any difference.

Okay, left unplugged for a few hours. It seems to be lighting quicker, just a minute or so after the glow stick comes on. Still cycling on and off every minute or two. Is this normal? I really don't know how it worked when it did work! It did beep after the 2nd time it shut down, signaling that it was preheated. I wish I had an oven thermometer to check it.

The short cycles may very well be a normal part of its preheat programming.
I've seen the preheat cycle on some of these electronic ranges do
some pretty strange things. Before we go much further some temperature testing is going to need to be done to this oven to see if its coming up to its set temp.

Thank you so much for all your help. I used the oven tonight and it seems to be fine. (First time in a long time!) I guess it just needed reset. I'll post again if I have any other problems.
