Question about Tappan TGF657 Gas Kitchen Range

Open Question

Tappan Model No. TGF657BCW-2 (36 inch wide stove built 1990)

Approximately,few months ago noticed while using oven on the preheat setting was taking a long time to heat up.
Upon further investigation noted that on preheat only the upper broiler was on trying to heat the whole oven and the bottom burner was off. From that point on I started heating oven by putting it on bake setting and appeared to bring up temperature better (using bottom burner). NOW to our current problem; starting oven on bake, would smell gas would ignite loud puff sound heard and would eventually get to temperature but then start losing temp.After removing some internal oven panels observed the following:on bake setting bottom bake igniter glows, burner ignites but never goes to the larger flame. On broil setting broil igniter glows burner comes on appears high and when change to low broil keypad beeped showed low on display-- flame spread remained the same -no change.When start oven on preheat only broiler comes on to heat oven-- bottom burner never comes on. At present panels still off. Any help to direct what problem is would be greatly appreciated-dual combine brake/broil valve?, electronic control board- an actual circuit board? Other?
THANKS FOR ANY HELP/GUIDANCE.

    Oven won't come on - displays F1 and F2 flashing alternately.  Several weeks before the oven total refusal to ignite, like leebee22's Tappan (same Model No purchased approx 9 yrs ago) I noticed the oven did not ignite right away when turned on and then a loud swooshing noise when it did ignite.

Lets take the oven problem first. Sounds like you have a Hot Surface Ignitor problem. This is the device that glows and lights the burner. You can buy a universal ignitor at most appliance or heating and air conditioning supply houses. Note carefully how the old one is mounted. You may have to make some adjustments to mount the new ignitor, but it MUST be close to the gas burner like the old one! You don't smell gas because the gas valve will not open until the ignitor is hot. All ignitors work with the same voltage, so simply connect the new wires to the old ones.

I'm not certain if you have a standing pilot for the stove top burners or electronic ignition. Remove the top panel to check. If you have a gas pilot, relight it. If electronic ignition, clean the ignitors. If that does not solve the problem you may have to call a technician, as these systems can be complex.

Hope this helps.

Your ignitor has gone out or is no longer drawing enough current to open the gas valve. Replace the oven ignitor and it will fix your problem.

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.

Sorry to read about your problem, I hope this helps you out.

ok it seems you have a offset issue, you need to purchase a oven temp gauge. See what the unit read's, lets say you set the oven for 350, does it read 320 or 380. 20 min for 350 is little on the long side, you may have a gas pressure issue.

I would get a 2nd opinion on this matter. and no, they are not all like that.

How do I know when the oven is preheated?


Depending upon your make and model of oven when you first turn the oven on to heat a light may come on that says 'preheat'. When the oven is heated to the temperature that you set it for the light will go off and some models sound a tone or beep as well. If your model does not show you in any way when it is preheated ( such may be the case in an older oven)you can purchase an oven thermometer for that purpose. If you will send the information regarding the make and model of your oven, I can give you a more specific answer.

we have the same tappan oven/microwave combination. We are looking for the knobs for this. Its a great oven, but we need these parts. Our microwave handle broke a long time ago and we had one made from wood. If you are going to ditch the old oven would you be willing to sell the knobs?

Oven takes 5 minutes to come on (ignite).


Replaced the igniter. The parts guy told me that the amperage changes with age and use; thus the igniter still glows, but it takes much longer to operate the gas valve with the reduced amperage. Cost - $70.14

Kenmore oven lower element sporadically heating.


When the food you're baking is done on top but not on the bottom--or when baking just takes far too long to finish--the bake element may be burned out.

You may get fooled into thinking it's working, because the oven is hot inside. But many electric ovens use the broil element, too, during the preheat and bake cycles. So the food may be getting heated only by the broil element, which causes poor baking results.

If the bake element is burned out, replacing it should solve the problem. Otherwise, you need to further troubleshoot the oven's electrical system to locate the defective wire or component.

KitchenAid gas range superba not reaching/registering right temp.


Always preheat your oven and let it cycle at least 2 times. Your unit may show 350 but the manufactures know that it is not 350. When it registers preheated, it really means that it is at an acceptable temperature to start cooking. If you think that it may not be calibrated correctly, your owner's manual will have instructions on how to recalibrate your oven. You will be able to raise or lower the temperature by + 25 degrees or - 25 degrees. As far as the gas smell, you will from time to time smell a gas smell with a gas oven especially if you are right at it when it ignites. If you are smelling gas when it is not in use then you should be extremely concerned.
