Oven makes an exploding sound when put on "bake" smell of gas

Our Tappan oven is having a problem lately. If we put the stove on bake, it does not seem to start to heat up, then all of a sudden there is an exploding sound where the gas is igniting after it has built up in the stove. It blows all the dust under the stove out from underneath, and the door partly opened when it lights. I think this is a hazard waiting to happen! any advise? thanks

    I have the same problem, however, I smell gas after the explosion and the oven would not turn off when I press clear. I have to unplug.

Sounds like the oven valve is leaking slightly. just as a precaution i wouldn't use it till you can get a repair man out there.

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.

Smelling gas but not lighting


I've had ignitors fail that way, they don't always just burn into an open circuit. I'd advise replacing it.

Tappan TGFS26C, Oven igniter not even


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.
