Question about Tappan TGF363 Gas Kitchen Range

Oven doesn't always heat.

I have to turn the oven on and off several times to get it to heat. Works sometimes. Other times it heats up, then temperature drops part way through cooking.

I would say it is the clock that controls the oven.

    A way of elimanating the controller is to pull the inner panel of the inside of the oven and watch it ignite if it glows but takes a really long time to ignite you probably have a bad bake ignitor. If it glows and missfires no ignition you probably have a bad ignitor . But if it glows a nd ignites then never glows again you probably have a bad controller.

Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome to the site. If you have a electric oven or a gas oven that won't heat or doesn't heat properly, here are some things you will need to check. The most likely cause of a oven not heating correctly is a defetive heating element. You have two types of heating elements in your oven. The bottom element(s) are the baking elements. The element(s) on the top are the broil elements. If you don't see the bright red glow from the element, chances are they are not working or not working correctly. If a heating element is bad, you need to replace the entire element. If your oven is warm and not correctly hot, one of the elements may be bad. In most ovens, when you preheat, both elements are used. This would make the oven to appear like it is working correctly but it is not. If the elements are not working, they might not be getting power. Test the wires to the elements with a voltage meter to make sure they are getting power before you decide to change them out. Many electrical ovens have a sensor that monitors the oven temperture. Ovens that have this sensor usually contain a digital display on the oven. The sensor could be defective. Those without the sensor use the basic mechanical system to control the oven temperature. You also want to check the thermostat sensing bulb. Make sure the bulb is good and has not come loose. Now, if you have a gas range oven that doesn't heat properly, first, you want to check your bake igniter. It may have burned out or it could be not working properly. It will be located near your burner. It is also possible that you are not getting gas to the burner. If so, it may be the gas safety valve or the igniter. You need to check your selector switch and thermostat as well. They may be defective. Always make sure you test the parts for power with a voltage meter of some type before you decide to change the part. If you have a part that appears to not be working, it may not be getting power because of a bad wire or broken connection. Thank you for your time and thanks for choosing FixYa.

Posted by Tvaclav on May 05, 2008
I have a Whirlpool oven model number SB130PER-0 the oven will not heat up also when i turn the oven on the indicator light does not come on. Any suggestions? Thanks


Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR APPLIANCE before beginning any service procedure.
You may have an bad heating element that would needs replacing because that is the heat source for the oven and on the oven light issue you nay have a bad sending unit , switch or just a burnt out bulb or light. Check with your local Whirlpool appliance dealer – sometimes they can be of some help. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local appliance dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.
