Question about Tappan Kitchen Ranges

Pilot light won't stay on

We can manually light burners or oven, but pilot lights will not stay lit. Once oven is lit, it will stay on. But when we turn it off, the pilot goes off also. Range was in house when we moved in 1999. Cannot find model. Gas range.

SOURCE: pilot blights wont stay lit on older model American gas range

Take a very small wire and clean out the pilot holes. Then find the pilot flame adjustment screw and re-set your pilot to 1/4 inch flame.

SOURCE: Garland H283 gas range. Right oven wont come on.

I just read this here:
http://www.american-appliance.com/catalog/newsdesk_info.php?newsPath=13&newsdesk_id=117
that explained how to test if the problem is the thermostat. It said to watch the pilot as you open the thermostat to turn on the oven. If the thermostat is ok the pilot should get bigger, if the pilot does not change when turning on the thermostat, then the thermostat is bad.

SOURCE: The oven pilot does not light. The broiler will

    If you have standing pilots, make sure the pilot for the oven/broiler is lit as well.  When you turn the thermostat up to call for heat, you should see the pilot get larger. That larger pilot flame heats a hydraulic sensor and opens the main burner valve.

    SOURCE: Oven pilot light won't light

    It is usually a bad thermocouple. Mine had only had a weak pilot flame and the problem turned out to be a corroded and leaking pilot gas line. It was leaking whee it enters at the bottom of the oven chamber.

    SOURCE: One of the top burner pilot lights will not stay

    You probably have grease that has gotten into the pilot. Turn off the gas to the pilot and detach the pilot tubing and pilot tip. It sometimes helps to take a propane torch and heat up the pilot tip and tubing, paying special attention to the first bend from the pilot tip. Get it red hot and tap out any ash from the inside. You may have to **** out the tubing with a piece of bare wire or blow it out with WD-40. With the oven pilot, check the pilot flame. If low, adjust. If OK, replace the thermocouple. If neither of these corrects the problem, replace the pilot satety. I always recommend a new thermocouple with a new pilot safety.

    I changed the thermo coupler and the pilot light does stay lit but the burners won't light


    If you are referring to a gas fireplace:

    • Make sure the pilot knob is turned from "pilot" to "ON" or it will never run.
    • If the pilot knob is "ON", and the pilot is lit, but the burner won't light, it could be a bad Thermopile. The thermopile is the other safety mechanism in the pilot assembly that controls the burner.

    The pilot won't stay lit on gas hot water tank.


    Make sure thermocouple tip is seated inside the burner flame.
    Make sure thermocouple is not overtightened. Finger-tight + 1/4 turn.
    If the pilot lights, then ECO energy cut off is not tripped, but gas control valve might be bad.
    Check color of pilot flame: it should be strong and clear blue.
    If pilot flame is weak, or color of flame is yellow-orange: Clean pilot orifice and burner and combustion parts on yearly basis.
    Clean air intake screen if applicable.
    Increase air supply to water heater. Open a window and see what happens.
    Check for adequate draft going up chimney using match under vent hood to see if smoke drafts immediately upwards.
    Bleed air out of gas line.
    Check gas pressure.

    I have a frigidare gas stove I have changed the ingnitor bar and it still wont light, it seems if there is no gas coming in to the oven. Altough the top burners still work


    Good day!!!

    Your pilot light might have gone out. If this is the case then you have to re-light it. If the pilot light won't stay lit, then you might have to adjust the thermocouple or move the pilot light closer to the burner.

    I hope this information will be helpful..


    Thanks for using fixya..Have a nice day!!

    Most gas water heater problems can be solved by having service technician perform yearly maintenance. Or by doing maintenance yourself.
    This maintenance includes cleaning burner parts and combustion chamber, checking gas pressure and supply, bleeding air out of gas line, checking vent draft, making sure air supply is adequate and not exposed to chemicals, cleaning air intake. Also adjusting flame sensor so it is positioned correctly. If water heater is connected to electric circuit, the outlet must have correct polarity.

    You can get gas to appliance indicates the gas control valve and water heater are not locked out. But the gas control valve thermostat can still be bad.

    Open following link for illustrations, typical service manuals, and maintenance information, and images of gas control valve thermostats.

    When i turn on oven all i smell is gas i cleaned with a wire brush still nothing. also is the pilot light always have to be on and can you see it when oven is off


    Most gas ovens that aren't electronic ignition usually have a pilot light.
    Usually one in the oven area and one for each burner. (Sometimes shared between two burners.)
    These pilot lights must lit at all times...otherwise it won't light up and you'll smell gas.
    Usually the pilot light is in the very back of the oven and can be seen with the broiler drawer opened.

    There is a small set screw located at the pilot light assembly in the oven and also at every burner.
    This allows you to adjust pilot light up or down, thereby letting you set pilot light flame to a level that doesn't get blown out by a draft...or you can turn it off completely.

    If you use that set screw to turn off the pilot light gas, you'd need to strike a match to light the oven or burners everytime you needed them.
