Electronic timer repair/replacement>>>HELP

Hi
Tappan gas oven model 12-4980-10103.Old one. Everything(tests) etc. points to electronic timer control as problem with no ignition. If I hold the broil or bake button in the igniters glow but nothing with push/release, times out.
problem:
Tried to buy a new electronic timer 5303281822 but all vendors respond "no longer available". There are 5 that look similar to mine at Repair Clinic but at the high price over 2 bills I don't want to waste money.I don't know anyone rebuilding them. I know it is a Frigidare product. Having worked in mainteance for years I'm sure there is a way to do this repairor replacement.
Question:
What options are available to me?
Thanks for your time.
BOB

This is a 555 timer chip http://www.nteinc.com/specs/900to999/pdf/nte955.pdf
but your timer circuit may also need testing of other chips with different identification #'s
, but they are the same as a JK flip flop , 74lso5 ( low power shottky , ttl ( transistor to transistor logic )
you would need to check the circuit to find where the fault is comming from exactly
have you checked the sensor for the ignitor ? ( ignitor glows , sensor detects glow( or pilot) , opens gas valve)

Hello Bob,

So far, this is the only part i have founded online, i think it is the same one you are talking about that is a bit expencive.

Have you tired contacting Tappan and asking them if they can send you the part, or where to buy it?


Good luck,
Dahaka

    he easiest approach is to use a 555 timer. See the related links to learn all about the 555.
    Then build one of their circuits, and adjust the two resistor values (connected to pins 6 and 7, and then 7 to 8.) and adjust the capacitor until you get the timing you want.
    The ratio of the resistor values is the ratio the output will be high then low. This is called the "Duty Cycle".
    In your case, you want to generally have a 9:1 ratio, because you want to detect when a certain amount of time has passed.
    So one resistor value must be 9 times the other one.
    To calculate the approximate waiting time, just take the larger resistor value and multiply it by the capacitor value.
    To calculate the approximate "active time", take the lower resistor value and multiply it by the capacitor value.
    "active time" occurs when the desired amount of time is over. This "active time" period lasts for a short while then the process starts all over again.
    To sum up, Experimenting with the 555 timer is your best answer.

Hi I have a Tappan oven model TGF357CCSF. The clock display andtemperature display is working but it is very dim. I have been told the I need a control panel 316028350 which is no longer available is this...


Hey - That part is available thru AppliancePartsPros online listing is clock/timer.  Part # AP2125110     $203.75   These timers are old-timers anymore. Can be hard to find, and at 200 bucks, make ya think twice. Gas model is probably worth it though.  Either way- it's an electronic clock that has had 120v running through it for 20 yrs or so. Time to replace for sure. Let me know if this info helps-  have more if needed-  Thanks--Ed

Tappan gas oven won't turn on


Hello,
I cannot assist you with your problem, but I do have the same oven and it seems the control panel doesn't work either. However, I am looking for the manual. Would you perhaps be able to help me with that? Sincerely, S. Rozier

Tappan Millennia Electric Oven #316065306---"F1 comes up on digital clock and oven is beeping".


Hi rich750,

The F1 error code description is an electronic oven control failure. The easiest way to fix this error is to replace electronic oven control (also called EOC or clock).

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Preheat worksoven wont bake


hi The range timer is usually located in the control panel on top of the range. If you suspect the timer is faulty, don't try to fix it yourself. Remove it and take it to a professional service person for testing. Here's how to remove the timer:

Step 1: Remove the back service panel to the control panel and release the spring clips that hold it in position, or remove the retaining screws.

Step 2: Push the timer forward to release it.

Step 3: Remove the electrical lead wires from the timer housing. If, when disassembling the timer, you notice that the electrical wire terminals look burned, remove these leads and buff the leads and the terminal points with fine steel wool. Burned and/or dirty terminals can cause the timer to malfunction, but a good cleaning can solve this problem.

Step 4: Replace the old timer or install a new one of the same size and type, if this is necessary. Connect the new timer the same way the old one was connected.

Tappan Oven overheats!!



If you have electronic controls, you'll need either the temperature probe (about $60.00) or the clock (about $150.00). You can test the temperature probe from behind the machine. It should read about 1080 ohms at room temperature. if the probe is good, replace the clock.

If you have mechanical oven controls, you need a new thermostat. Is the too high temp consistent? (i.e. runs at 375F +/- 25F?) If so, you can usually adjust the thermostat **** to read closer to the actual temperature.

Oven thermostat - schoenberger gas system 1975


Will need to find the correct model # somewhere on the range then go to www.appliancepartspros.com or www.www3.sears.com and you will find it there. I found thermostats on those sites for a model # close to yours and most likely the same one. Sears was about $72 and appliancepartspros was about $78. Hopes this helps.
