Question about Tappan TGF320 Gas Kitchen Range
I have a tappen gas stove, and when I turn on the oven to bake I smell gas and my oven will not light. I see the red glow like it's trying to light but nothing is happening. What do I do?
I think you probably have a weak ignitor. does the ignitor glow orange?
if it does, or i should say when it does, just tap lightly on the gas valve and see if that causes the gas to flow into the burner and then light.
you can use the handle of a screwdriver to tap with and it wont need to much force.
if this does work, then just replace the ignitor. when they get weak they will glow, but wont draw enough current thru the gas valve to allow it to open. your valve does get voltage but it opens when enough current draw opens the bi-metal portion of the valve to allow gas to flow.
