Hello. I live in an apartment and I have a GE electric oven. The oven is at least 40 years old.
The problem with my oven is that when I bake anything, it takes much longer to bake than usual. For example, a chicken thigh takes at least 75 minutes to bake. In the past, it only took about 45 minutes.
I had maintenance from the apartment complex take a look, but he said the temperature is fine and the bake element lights up and he could find nothing wrong.Can anyone tell me what the possible problem could be?
I don't feel comfortable baking animal products in this oven because even after lengthy baking, there are certain areas that are still reddish.
I know that the oven is very old and perhaps it is actually dying, but I would like someone's expert opinion so that I can speak to maintenance again and get some appropriate action.
