How long does an FHA appraisal take?

We've been waiting now on the appraisal for about 2 weeks, and everytime we call the lender she says she hasn't heard anything yet. What could be taking so long? I know with FHA loans they are a lot more detailed, but what if they find something that needs to be fixed? Do they contact the seller to fix it... show more We've been waiting now on the appraisal for about 2 weeks, and everytime we call the lender she says she hasn't heard anything yet.

Do they contact the seller to fix it or do they notify the bank that the appraisal was not good?

Thanks!
