Question about Tappan TEF242 Electric Kitchen Range
When I plug in my Gibson gas Stove/Oven the fuse in my panel downstairs blows I have the old screw in fuses it does not matter if I use 20 amp or 30 amp fuses, I can not see any defects in the cord I thought maybe wires in the cord may be touching. I have not taken the back panel off yet to look further, wonderring is there a fuse inside the stove that could be blown? not sure where to start. A friend told me to try a continuity test with a tester.
SOURCE: Oven fuse blows - Nothing works
try lifting the stove top assy and checking wires under main top, leading to the elements them selves??? if tis tripping and not allowing to reset its gotta be an obvious short. isit hard wired directly to stove or into a 220 cord and plug???id look again, perhaps remove entire back panel and have someone trip on the breaker you might see where it flashes as it trips off

SOURCE: Gas smell, oven not heating up
You gas oven uses a glowbar to both regulate and ignite the gas entering the oven. If this glowbar is faulty, it might let some gas into the oven but it is not hot enough to ignite the gas. That is why you are smelling gas. I would suggest to start by replacing the glowbar (and if this is not the solution, simply return the part for a refund). The part you are looking for can be found online here: http://www.partselect.com/PartDetail.aspx?Inventory=470129&SourceCode=1
It is quite easy to replace. Simply remove the free-standing pan on the bottom of the oven, unscrew the existing glowbar, remove the back cover from the stove and trace the two wires that belong to the glowbar and unplug them. Thread the two wires from the new glowbar through the opening and reconnect to the plugs at the back of the stove. Screw in the new glowbar and test. Most oven ignition problems are caused by faulty glowbard. Good luck.
