I have a Samsung free standing range Model# NX58H5600SS, I noticed the sound of the gas oven turning on and off during pre heat, took off bottom covers to expose the gas jet and igniter. Saw the igniter light up the 1 min later i saw the gas come on. Moments later the flame went off, but igniter still on, then back on repeatedly until it made temp. Took a long time to heat to 425 (approximately 40 min). Is it normal for the gas valve to cycle on and off during the pre heat
It is normal operation for the oven burners to turn off and on during operation. The pre-heat operation should reach 350 degrees in 20 - 25 minutes.
