Most gas stoves use a ceramic ignitor that heats up before the gas is allowed to turn on. I replaced one many moons ago, not that hard.

Tappan series 110 the igniter is glowing but it wont lite the oven


Is the gas turned on at the stop valve behind the range? Assuming the gas is on, the igniter can glow but not actually be working properly such that the control valve does not open or the valve may be failed. There are electrical measurements for the valve and igniter and related circuit that can be made if you have a clamp on amp meter and a volt meter.

You have to light burners on stovetop with a match all the time.


The pilots for the range top are beneath the top of the range top. YOu will see them if they are there. YOu stove may use electronic ignition and you can hear the sparking when you turn the knob to the "light" position.

If it is electronic ignition, make sure the stove is plugged into an operating outlet

I have tappan ove that does not turn on. The gas is on and working but the oven does not heat up.


I assume this stove is new enough to have electric ignition. Also assuming that the stovetop burners ignite with the usual Tic-Tic-Tic, the electric igniter in the oven is probably burned out. Most igniters are of a ceramic material, coated with a resistive/conductive coating so it will heat to a cherry red glow to ignite the gas. Being ceramic, it will work wonderfully until one day it develops a crack, and no longer conducts. A replacement igniter is probably the answer. A local appliance dealer should be willing to sell you the part.

Older Tappan range oven not lighting.


There is no way to light the oven manually. The gas valve will not open until the oven ignitor draws enough current. But replacing the ignitor will fix ya up.

Oven not always working


MOre than likely your igniter is getting weak. If it doesnt pull enough amperage. it shouldnt let gas into the oven. If it is letting in gas and not igniting, I would suggest a new igniter and a new safety valve. Hope this helps!
