Question about Tappan 30IN ELEC IGNa Oven

1 Answer

Gas Furnace doesn't come back on after giving heat for a while.

Once the heat comes on, which isn't consistent with the thermostat setting, it goes off when the temperature rises but doesn't come back on when the temperature lowers. At times the heat comes on with no help (adjusting thermostat to higher degree setting) but does no stay on even though it is cold indoors.

We have just installed a new thermostat (White-Rodgers) which is compatible with our furnace.

Help!

    Tappan model 30-2759-23/03

    The heating element comes on for the bake/oven but the gas does not ignite. We have been smelling gas.

    Switched over to the broiler and it did ignite.

    What's not working and how can it be fixed?



    Any suggestions

This is an erratic operation of the thermostat you can reset the thermostat. Please check the reset operation procedure of the installation manual

    Diagnostic: Set SYSTEM Switch to HEAT and raise the setpoint above room temperature. Within a few seconds the thermostat should make a soft click sound. This sound usually indicates the thermostat is operating properly. If the thermostat does not click, try the reset operation listed above. If the thermostat does not click after being reset contact your heating and cooling service person or place of purchase for a replacement. If the thermostat clicks, contact the furnace manufacturer or a HVAC service person to verify the heating is operating correctly.

Why the piolet does not lile inmy Ge wall oven when turned on


Thermal Fuse
If the air flow in the dryer is restricted, the temperature in the heating chamber can get hot enough to blow the thermal fuse. If the fuse blows, it cuts power to the coils that control the gas valve. The fuse is usually mounted to the exhaust duct just inside the back panel. You can check its continuity with an ohmmeter. If, after disconnecting the fuse, you get any reading other than 0 when you touch the leads of the meter to its terminals, it has blown. There's no way to restore it -- you'll have to install a replacement.
Igniter and Gas Valve Coils
TEST with a multi meter: The igniter is an electric conductor that works like the element in an electric heater, glowing hot enough to ignite gas when you turn on the dryer. This conductor can burn out, and when it does, it may glow, but it won't get hot enough to ignite the gas. At times it may give a reading of continuity yet fail mechanically and not get hot enough to ignite flame though it gets hot and glows and even may show Ohms or continuity ( close circuit) ?
Occasionally, the Gas safety valve and the electric coils that control the gas valve are defective -- they can wear out when the dryer gets old. When this happens, the igniter glows, but gas never enters the heating chamber or does not stay consistant.
Performing a continuity test on either part will help you determine whether or not you need to replace it. But the coils should also be tested for amount of resistance as well as Ohms. As they may be showing ohms yet not putting out enough resistance to keep proper gas pressure flowing. Most coils should show at least 1300 ohms ( GIVE OR TAKE 150 OHMS). Anything significantly less Thus u get an ignition but then it soon goes back out. The flame does not stay lit.
Air Flow and Heat
The motor that drives the tumbler also drives a fan that circulates air through the heating chamber and the tumbler and expels it through the vent. If the air can't circulate, perhaps because of lint blockage, the heating chamber overheats, which prompts the cycling thermostat to turn off the gas. The thermostat resets when the chamber cools, but the chamber heats up quickly and the thermostat again shuts off the gas. The result is that the temperature in the tumbler doesn't stay hot, and your clothes take longer to dry, if they get dry at all.
Warning
There's a big difference between a dryer that doesn't heat up at all and one that just doesn't get hot enough to dry your clothes. In the first instance, the problem is usually a defective part, and things should be back to normal after you replace it. In the second instance, the problem is caused by restricted air flow, and you need to clear the lint filter and vents and take steps to prevent lint build-up. If you don't, you'll use more energy for drying than you need and the dryer may continue to malfunction. Worse, you may have a dryer fire.

My gas oven isn't heating up properly, is there


We were able to trouble-shoot our gas oven before calling the repair man. Our oven reached temperature but did not reheat when it cooled down. Our troubleshooting included taking out the storage drawer and looking at the underside of the oven near the valve.

First check if you can see the flame when the oven is on.

Use an oven thermometer in the oven to test if the oven gets to the desired temperature first. Does it get close to the desired temperature and stay near there for your entire bake time? If it does, you may need to adjust the thermostat setting. (This should be in your manual. Many Frigidaire manuals are available from their support site: http://www.frigidaire.com/Customer-Support/Videos--Manuals/ . )

Since our oven was reaching the set temperature and then not reheating, we had one person crawl under the oven and tap on the regulator when the oven needed to reheat. (We could see the ignitor spark.)

If the oven isn't heating at all, then the thermostat, the gas valve, controller or ignitor are suspects. Can you see the spark of the ignitor? Then it's probably not the issue. Similarly if you see the flame coming on several times during the bake cycle, it's not likely to be the valve. If you have a multimeter, you may be able to check the thermostat and controller for any breaks in the wire.

In our case, since the valve was failing, we ended up replacing the 10-year old range. (We looked at the price of a new range versus part and labor cost for the replacement. The part and labor was more than 50% of a new range.)

I hope this helps.

My oven works fine it just doesn't heat-up. I can hear ignition clicking but no fire from burners. A technican told me to purge the union above gas to get rid of air in the line. Thanks Louis


Personally I wouldn't describe an oven that doesn't heat up as working fine. You shouldn't have any air in your gas line unless this is the first time firing the oven, in either case the air in the gas line would work its way out eventually and the oven would light on its own.

Check to see if your ignitor is glowing before you hear the clicking, if the ignitor isn't glowing it needs to be replaced and is fairly easy to do so. If your ignitor is glowing you should check to make sure you are getting gas to the burner. The only way I would recommend checking this is with your nose, do you smell gas when the gas valve clicks? If you do then something is wrong with the burner, either dirty or the exhaust is too strong, or even gas pressure too low. If you don't smell any gas that doesn't necessarily mean no gas is coming out, at this point you should call a authorized service provider to take it over from here.

Were is located the thermostate


The thermostat is solid state, it is incorporated into the control board. You can however locate the temperature probe which goes into the left side of the back of the control board and goes into the top of the oven under a cover near the air pressure switch and high limit thermostat. To locate follow the small aluminum tube coming from your exhaust stack, that will lead you to the air switch which is next to where the temperature probe enters the heat exchanger compartment.

Gas furnace short cycling. checked by experts no solution


This is tough one. If you have an older mercury type thermostat, behind the cover theirs a small copper pointer that points to some numbers. This is your heat anticapator. This setting has to match your milliamp draw of all the controls on your furnace. If set to low it over heats and fools the thermostat into thinking its satisfied. Move the point to a higher setting in little increments. Hope this works for you. Can't help with the vibration without hearing it.

My Whirlpool oven no longer heats to the set temperature.


Temp probe/thermometer inside oven dirty, or off attachment, or defective. On some models, a small screw head adjustment is provided to calibrate thermometer under dial knob. Else, I would just set dial 50 degrees higher rather than expense of new thermometer or dial.

The pilot light for the oven went out.



Relighting Your Furnace's Pilot Light

furnace1.jpg - Turn off the gas at the main valve at your utility box - Wait five to ten minutes for gas fumes to waft away - Get a long match—yes, a fireplace match, not a standard match - Set the gas valve on your furnace to "pilot" - Press the red button as you hold the match to the pilot valve - Keep pressing the red button for 30-60 seconds so the pilot can heat the thermocouple. Release the button and see if the pilot remains lit - If pilot goes out, wait five to ten minutes and repeat the process - Once the pilot stays lit, turn the main gas valve back on - If the pilot light continues to go out, call a technician, who may need to adjust or replace your thermocouple or adjust your pilot
