SOURCE: I have a series 30 Tappan Gas Range with a broiler

Either a weak ignitor or stuck valve. I tap on the valve with the plastic end of a screwdriver while it is glowing and if it lights the ignitor is weak. If not the valve is stuck and both should be replaced.

SOURCE: our tappan oven won't light. the pilot element

Either the safety valve is stuck or the ignitor is weak. While the ignitor is glowing. use the handle of a large screwdriver to tap on the valve body. If it lights replace the ignitor. If it does not light replace both the ignitor and the safety valve.

Why does my broiler lite when I operate my oven?


There is a possibility that the switch is not wired correctly or perhaps your selector knob is on upside down i have seen this before.

Broiler wont light everything else works..model ffgf3023lwa


Hi Chris Stewart - If the bake element and the top of the range works, but just not the heating element, then you possibly have a bad broiler element or connection. However, if you are experiencing other performance difficulties, then the control board may possibly be faulty and needs replacing. Consult a professional for an accurate diagnosis.

I have a Kenmore gas range that doesn't light right away when I put the broiler on. I can smell the gas going to the pilot but it takes too long for the flame to light. Sometimes if I cancel the broil...


It seems to me that it is a bad thermocouple. It costs about $5. It senses the pilot flame and then tells the gas to turn on full. BUT if it uses an electric igniter that in itself is the gauge to tell the gas valve to turn on full. And that could be about $30 or more.
I am only slightly confused because you say gas range, but the broiler function is in the oven. So that is what I am believing what you are describing in your problem

Oven wont lite or work


You say it will not lite ? I must think you have a gas range and you most likely have a bad ignitor. If the range is electric you may have a bad bake element. You can change this easily from inside the oven. Simply unplug the range, then inside you will see the bake element on the bottom of the oven. You will find two screws holding it in. Remove the two screws and gently pull the element out of the hole. I will have two wires attached. You can remove the wires by simply pulling them off, some will be screwed to the element. You can then check the element with a voltage meter for continuity. If you have none the element is bad. Hope this helps and feel free to call if you need further help.

Gas oven(tappen) with broiler draw. oven will not light, no pilot


if this is fairly new, there is a hot surface ignitor near the back of the burner in the bottom part of the oven. This can go bad. There is a connector that can be pulled apart where the ignitor meets the wiring harness. Ohm out the ignitor or have someone with a meter ohm it out. There should be resistance and not open. If open the ignitor should be replaced. If you have a broiling element, turn that on. If the broil element comes on then the ignitor is almost for sure the problem.

Bake does not heat up. Broil works though


I'm going to take a wild guess and say that you oven has two heating elements. A lower one for general baking and an upper one for broiling (this means that you don't have a broiler "drawer").

If this is the case, then the problem exists with the pilot/ignition system for the lower heat element.

The systems vary by manufacturer, but the type that I'm familiar with involves and electrical heat element that ignites the gas once it starts glowing. It's possible that a wire has been damaged/disconnected or that the heat element has malfunctioned.

If your oven has a pilot, then it's possible that the pilot went out on the lower element and not the upper. Last option would be an electric "spark" style ignition which may have suffered from the same problems as the electric heat element mentioned above.

Broiler doesn't lite, no gas going to pilot


Most cases Broiler ignitor is out, after you turn on the Broiler, check the voltage on Broiler ignitor 2 wires, if you have approx. 110v, then change the ignitor, but you don't have 110v, then check Broiler safety valve and oven thermostat, but 90% of the time is the Broiler ignitor. Have fun.

Spark module clicks and gas will not stay lit, flame comes on but goes out


hi Clogged burners are a very common problem with gas ranges because foods spilled on the burners block the gas ports and prevent ignition. On some gas ranges you can remove the top ring of the burner to expose the ports. Here's how to clean a burner:
Step 1: Turn off the power supply, both gas and electric, to the range. Then remove the burner.
Step 2: Soak the burner in a solution of mild household detergent and water. Clean it with a soft cloth.
Step 3: Clear the gas ports with a pin or needle, rinse the burner, and let it dry. Caution: Do not use a toothpick or matchstick to clean the gas ports. If the tip of the wood gets stuck in the burner ports, it could cause a serious blockage.
Step 4: When the burner is completely dry, replace it, and turn on the power and the gas supply.
thank u.................
