Wall Oven Preheat Time is Too Long
According to your wall oven model, the preheat time may vary.
If your oven is installed at the correct voltage, i.e., 120 volts for gas and 240V for electronic, check the preheat times below.
- Electric oven with a hidden bake element and the fast preheat feature can take up to 7-10 minutes to preheat.
- Electric ovens with hidden bake elements and gas ovens will take around 15 to 20 minutes to preheat.
- Ovens with a visible bake element can take 5 to 10 minutes to preheat.
Now, we will see the factors that are caused by alters in the preheat time.
- Starting temperature of the oven.
- Selected temperature. Every 25 degrees increment above a 350 degree set temperature adds nearly 45-60 seconds to the oven's preheat time.
- Room temperature can affect the preheat time.
- The number of racks in the profile wall oven.
- A fault volt installation of your gas or electric oven will increase the preheat time.
If your wall oven is taking so much time to preheat than normal:
Turn off the circuit breaker for the wall oven. After 30 seconds, turn the breaker to ON. This will make sure that the circuit breaker is set correctly and the unit is getting full power.
If your oven is newly installed, check the power cord/ supply to ensure that it was wired to the unit correctly.
