Hey,

I have a gas oven and when I preheat the oven at 350 it kicks on then when the timer goes off and I put the food in it's not really hot. Anyone know what it could be...

PS didn't know where to put this thread.. SORRY:)

If it's not a pilot model maybe a bad igniter?

Yeah now thinking about it. I hear it make the clicking noise and it turns on a few times. Then as i check it about 20 mins later it's cold well not ice cold but not HOT.. Just going to have someone come out and look at it.

Is there a broiler under the oven? If so then just open the door and see if the flames on or not.

yes there is and the flame does come on. Should say sometimes it does. So it sound like it might be the igniter. Plus i do hear the gas and then nothing

Could also be the electric solenoid valve. If you could set a candle in the area of the igniter and turn it on that would give you more of an idea what is happening?
