Convection Oven Preheat

We've been on our 2014 Berkshire 390bh for about a month now and loving it. Question on the convection oven. When I preheat, it gets hot but never beeps that it is up to temperature and preheat is done. Has anyone else had this problem? How long should it take to preheat?

What brand do you have. We have an Amana and it seems to take a while to preheat. The first couple of times I was thinking it was broken. I guess because it's a microwave also it should be faster.

Thanks. We have the whirlpool and have entered the info correctly but no beep. I will follow up with Whirlpool. Thanks for the help! This was my first time using the Forum. It's great!

Bunci,
Seems that my wife doesn't remember whether there is a beep when it reaches the desired temperature or not but wanted to welcome you to the FORUMS!! Glad to hear that you are enjoying your Berkshire and hope you have many fun, memorable and trouble free trips with it.
Tom

Convection Oven Preheat

Bunci,

We have a 2015 Berk with the Whirlpool convection oven too. While preheating to cook some biscuits, it took a full 30 minutes to finish the preheat and get the beep. It just showed "preheat" on the screen the whole 30 minutes. I put the biscuits in about 15 minutes into the preheat cycle and they were almost done by the time the oven thought it was preheated!

Please post back after you talk to Whirlpool and let us know what you learn.

By the way...welcome to the forum, this is my first post too!

Thanks,
Terry

We are used to it now. Dianna has baked a couple of pies and lots of cookies. We have done meals like meatloaf and it seems to be fine.

Biscuits are the only thing I have cooked in our whirlpool. I just put them in at the start and leave them in there during the preheat. They're done faster than they would be at home in our regular oven.
