Sounds like an problem with the ignition system.  You probably ought to get help on this.  GAS IS DANGEROUS.

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.

My tappan oven won't work. stove and broiler work fine. ignighter glows but it seems like there is no gas.


I would check with your manufacturer and see if a professional can diagnose the regulator and even the gas valve itself.

My oven is not working. At the bottom of the stove the ignitor light comes on, but gas doesn't come on. I would like to fix the problem, can you instruct me on how to fix my oven. I want to bake...


The ignitor is probably weak. You have a good circuit because the oven control is trying to light burner. The gas valve is alo fine because it is allowing current to flow. The ignitor with age does not draw enough current to light off the stove.

Oven does not heat. Broiler and stove work. NO gas smell.


could be the oven thermostat, get a plumber/heating engineer out, but make sure you can trust him, cause he could try and say u need a new cooker when it MIGHT only be a new oven thermostat.

I have a double gas oven and no instructions


I have an O'Keefe & Merritt double oven gas stove. The model number is 72 7242 23. The upper oven is about the size of a large microwave and sits above the range burners. The lower (full-size) oven is below the burner unit and includes a broiler draw below it.
So, when you say, double oven, I wonder if you are just talking about the main oven with broiler drawer (both of which are below the burner unit.)

Mine was a builder-supplied appliance in the new house we purchased in 1986. The upper oven has never performed very well. And, yes the upper oven can only be used for baking.

I have an instruction manual for it, but it doesn't provide that much information. Getting parts for it is extremely difficult, since Tappan is no longer manufacturing this brand. (I've been trying to locate a flat oven ignitor for the upper oven and can't seem to find a replacement that's the same 6-1/3" length.) In the 1980s Tappan apparently purchased O'Keefe & Merritt and marketed this brand for several years. Models originally manufactured by O'Keefe & Merritt in the 1930s-1950s are considered collectible antique stoves!

If both the broiler ignitor and the bake ignitor are not working it is unlikely they are both bad. You may have another problem. Need to check voltage to the ignitors to be sure.
