    Default Maytag w/ long preheat time

    Hello all,

    Looking for a little help.
    I have an MGR5710ADW Maytag oven. When we go to preheat the oven to say 425 degrees it takes forever to preheat. Tonight it was over an hour and it still never hit the preheat temp according to the preheat light and sound tone.
    The oven is about 6.5 years old.

    Not sure what to think. Any ideas.

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    Hi,

    When you start your oven, do you see an orange glow from under the bottom of your oven as your looking in it? Do you hear the gas fire up?

    Jake,

    Yes there is a glow when I start it up. The gas kicks on about 2.5 minutes after I start it. I am timing it today to see how long it takes to get to 425 again.

    Thank you for the response.

    I timed the oven today twice.
    Both Times it was 14 minutes to preheat to 425 which is pretty good if you ask me.

    This seems to be a sporadic issue. Maybe cooking on the stove while preheating the oven causes it to not heat up as fast??

    2 1/2 minutes abit to long before it lights the gas, it should light it within 90 seconds. I would say your glow bar igniter is starting to wear out.

    Here is more info on this issue:

    Here is a new one for your model you can order:
    Igniter, glow bar

    Timed it again tonight and it was at over 3 minutes for the gas to come on.
    Thanks for your advice.
    I think I will try out your suggestion.
