Re: tappan gas range 50 deg. too hot
I was unable to find a photo large enough to see if this range has stove-front knobs or electronic controls.
If it is equipped with a knob for oven control, pull the knob off and peer into the shaft to see if a slotted adjustement is visible.
If so, you will need a small-bladed, long shaft screwdriver to reach and adjust it.

Typically, if there is no LCD display, the oven gas knob has the adjustments on the back of it. Just back off the screw and adjust it 10 degrees at a time, using an oven thermometer to verify accuracy.
you shouldnt need to adjust the burners for a temp problem. the control has a built in calibration setting and it should be described in your owners manual. if you dont have the manual, then try to set the oven temp to max, 550, and then hold the bake button in for 10 to 30 seconds. after that it should beep and show you a 2 digit number like 00. that is the calibration mode, then you can adjust it up or down +/- 35 degrees. try to make a small adjustment first like 10 degrees and see how it bakes. if it takes too long to bake, then use + degrees, if it is burning things then lower -10 degrees. hope that helps you.
hi thanks for the question yes this problem is very popular in gas ovens even though theigniter lights up its not hot enough to ignite the gas and also with this problem it wont reach the set tempeture thanks the appliance doc
If you have electronic controls, you'll need either the temperature probe (about $60.00) or the clock (about $150.00). You can test the temperature probe from behind the machine. It should read about 1080 ohms at room temperature. if the probe is good, replace the clock.
If you have mechanical oven controls, you need a new thermostat. Is the too high temp consistent? (i.e. runs at 375F +/- 25F?) If so, you can usually adjust the thermostat **** to read closer to the actual temperature.
does it have a knob in front or is it a panel to operate bake broil ? if it has a oven knob take it off and look in the back of the knob you adjust it there if it is electric if it is gas you need to use a small screw driver in the stem where the knob goes on and turn a little screw in there to ajust temperture turn clockwize to adjust temp up
