Cook to Perfection
Built for Convenience
I like this wall oven but it does have a few issues that bother me. One is an all-glass front that seems to be easy to brake. Another issue is a very slow warm-up time. It takes 20 minutes for this oven to reach a preheat temperature of 375 degrees F. I have to keep this in mind and always start the oven earlier than I would like. Also, the fan runs all the time the oven is on and even after it shuts off until it cools down. I have to keep the door open after it shuts off to make the fan go off in a reasonable time period.
Have owned this unit 4 years. Used self cleaning twice and both times it blows to relay switch in the back each time..which means calling service dept and they have to pull unit and replace to the tune of approx $200.00. I would not suggest buying this unit.
Pro's: It fit where the existing oven was with no modification to the cabinets. Our installer, Robbie was a great guy.
Con's: The cooling fan for the electronics runs anytime the oven is on. It is very loud and annoying. It blows the air out at the top of the door, so there is always a hot wind blowing out the front of the oven that hits you in the face when you look in to see how the food is cooking.
Kenmore 49509 27" Electric Self-Clean Single Wall Oven /w Convection - Black. Writing review here cuz it would not let me update my previous review on the 49509 oven. So, replaced the control board and the unit works great.
It's exactly what I needed: easy to use with no gimmicky bells and whistles.
This oven fits my needs in a double wide mobile home very well. The 25 year old Tappan single wall oven plainly gave out when the oven would not shut off, stayed warm all the time. The new one came when promised and the delivery was perfect. I was prepared for the package arriving, I removed the old oven before delivery of the new one. I set up a picnic table in front of the wall opening that was the same height as the old one for easy pushing into the opening. Electrical installation was easy also. The delivery guys set it on the table when I asked them to and hauled away the old one. Un-packing was a snap and everything fit nicely. Everything seems to work fine and most of the previous comments are pretty much accurate. All in all it seems to be just what I need. Just make sure you have enough room for the cutout dimensions.
Only used for short time so gave it a good rating. Works well and I like the way it looks.
