I have a gas...

I have a gas cook stove still on warranty. I had a repair man sent by a phone call to Whirlpool. My stove oven would not reach temp I set. The tech set it up by 20 degrees. Told me that it would not reach my chosen temp when the oven said it was there and if I needed an exact temp I needed to pre heat for 45minutes. Is this true? Not very environmentally friendly if you need 400 for 12 minutes for cookies or biscuits etc.

Contractor's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your Whirlpool is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

I received it in a Modular home. Registered it on July 21 2017.

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Model WFG540H0EW1

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

N​o this does not sound right or even make sense. I recommend calling Whirlpool back and making a compliant and to not send that vendor out again. Ovens should easily reach 500+ degrees or more if a self cleaning feature is included. If you oven is slow to reach a reasonable temperature then the problem is either gas related (gas valve or regulator problem) or a thermostat problem. These are the only 2 main parts that control the gas. The main control board could also be a problem if defective, or the type of gas is wrong for the gas valve (Natural vs LP)
