I have a Magic Chef 59F 5TWX oven that has been a pain in the rear lately. It takes over an hour to preheat the oven to 350°. Can anyone give me some suggestions as to what might be wrong and if it's worth fixing? I don't want to pay a repairman $60/hr to come tell me what the problem is if I can fix it myself.

Sounds like the element is only getting 120vac... or something less than the full 240vac needed. This page explains the basic troubleshooting kata for electric ovens ==> How to Troubleshoot an Electric Oven that Doesn’t Heat Up
