Tappan Visualite electric wall oven - around 1960

Top oven has a preset cooking mechanism. I can't get top oven to lite because I don't have the dials lined up properly. Center dial is a clock (not working) a setting for "hrs to cook" & "stop". There is also another knob to the left of the clock which reads (I think) S C O M (4 settings). I can get the oven to work by trial and error - not suitable for holiday cooking. Has anyone ever encountered this problem?

Thanks

    She said it all...I have the same exact settings and can only work it by trial and error.

    I also have a Tappan from 1960's w/ the center clock and two knobs. My problem is there are no numbers on the dials. I'm sure one is the temperature but I don't know what the other one does. No-one can help because I can't find a serial number. A replacement knob from the stores has temp and broil but if I have a separate knob for broil then the temps won't line up. Can anyone tell me whats on these knobs and where I can get replacements even if I don't have the serial number.

SOURCE: the igniters wont light the burners

49er, if none of the igniter switches work you're on the right track. Follow those wires and you'll come to a "spark module". This will need to be replaced. Part number 74008821... lists at about $21.00. Good luck and let us know how it turns out.

SOURCE: Self-cleaning feature of GE Built-In Oven does not work

Simply set the Clock and Delay Start to the current time, then set the Stop Time ahead 3 hours. For example, if it is currently 8:00 then set the Stop Time to 11:00. The lights on the console will come on and the cleaning cycle will begin. At some point during the cycle when the oven gets hot enough, the lock mechanism is "fixed" and will not release until the cycle is complete.

Gas Tappan oven will not power up after power outage


make this test and use the multimeter. God bless you

No power
Make sure there's power getting to your range, oven or cook top. Check for a tripped circuit breaker or a blown fuse. Check the wall socket for power with a voltmeter or by plugging something else in.

Stuck oven light bulb


I use 2 sided tape to get a grip on the bulb. If it is really stuck and you end up breaking it, don't worry as it will be easier to remove the rest of the bulb with a pair of needle nose pliers.

Tappan TMV151FS over range microwave starts to work and then dies


Never run the microwave without a load (something to heat)!!! That kills the microwave generating parts.

Sounds like a 'thermal' protect switch is activating after running. Make sure that (if the unit is mounted in a cabinet) that there is sufficient space around the unit for proper air flow and that nothing is blocking the vents. Try setting it on a counter top and heat something. If it works properly and doesn't shut off, the venting space is the problem. You may have to have the cabinet that it sits in redesigned for more clearance.

Have a GE Electric Cook Top oven with digital


Unplug the stove. plug back in and program a short clean cycle. If this does not fix it is eithe the selector switch or the electronic control. Verifying the switch contacts with a meter is the only way to be sure.

When burner is turned on, the "ticking" noise never stops!!!


You got water/liquid in the control switch,most the time you have to replace the switch,and most cook tops require the whole string of them be changed at once.That is all the switches are tied into /pre wired together.
