Thermal analysis of part in oven

I'm looking to perform a thermal analysis of a mould tool inside a convection oven.

The oven will be operating at 110°C, and I want to know how long it'll take for the inside of my mould to reach this temperature also.

The moulded part in question will be carbon fiber; however, I don't think that should affect my analysis.

 

I know I need to do a transient analysis but I'm not sure what settings to apply.

I assumed it would be a case of establishing the initial temperature of all the mould faces, and then applying the temperature of the convection oven to the outside (red) faces only, but I can't seem to make this work.

 

Can anyone give me some pointers on where to go with this?

I can't find any relevant information in the simulation professional manual.
