Takes Less or More Time to Cook Than Previous Oven - Commercial Range

Possible Solutions

Factors that cause longer preheat times: 

  • Unused racks left in the oven will add to the preheat time. Remove any racks not being used for oven operation.
  • For optimal performance, place food in the oven as soon after the signal as possible.  Avoid leaving the door open for an extended period of time.
  • Newer range/ovens have larger oven cavity than past models which may take longer to preheat.
  • A hidden bake element provides buffered heat and will take longer to preheat than an exposed bake element.
  • A range/oven installed on lower voltage, 208V, will take longer to preheat than one installed on 240V. Oven performance will not be affected once the set temperature is reached.   
  • Low/cold room temperature will cause longer preheat times.

Did you allow the oven to preheat?  Did you place food in the oven before preheat cycle was complete? 

Preheating is necessary for good results.  For optimal performance, place food in the oven as soon after the signal as possible.   

Did you open the oven door during preheat?

Do not open the door to insert food until preheat tone sounds.

Is the oven door being opened frequently to check baking/cooking results? 

Always use the oven light to check baking progress because opening the oven door allows heat to escape and the oven to cool. 

Only open the oven door to check results when minimum cooking time has been reached.
