I assume this stove is new enough to have electric ignition. Also assuming that the stovetop burners ignite with the usual Tic-Tic-Tic, the electric igniter in the oven is probably burned out. Most igniters are of a ceramic material, coated with a resistive/conductive coating so it will heat to a cherry red glow to ignite the gas. Being ceramic, it will work wonderfully until one day it develops a crack, and no longer conducts. A replacement igniter is probably the answer. A local appliance dealer should be willing to sell you the part.

TAPPAN gas range model 30-3991-00/03 oven won't work.


the button your holding is the switch that tells the board that the consumer whats to bake.so if holding the switch causes that message to work[or oven to heat] and letting go of that button ,then no work .its that button ,but its all part of the board .just that part of its funktion is broken.,if it was lets say your oven ignitor or oven gas safty valve ,the board/oven control[the one with the button]would continue to try after you have selected bake [pushed button]or would give error code.hope that helps you. God bless you , tom

Per this page (http://www.repairclinic.com/0078.asp#Tappan), it sounds like you need to replace your oven temperature sensor.
