Tappan 32-1272-10/07056-8509-4080 gas range/oven pilot light works,main oven burner won't come on


You will need to look and see if the igniter is glowing a bright red. If it is weak, the oven will not light. Here is the igniter if you need to order it.

Also check and make sure your getting 3.2-3.6 volts AC to the valve.

The oven doesn.t go on, I see the ignighter turn on but the gas won't light.


Hello Jim,
Believe it not the igniter is the problem,yes indeed it is coming on yet it is not getting hot enough to allow the gas valve to open. By replacing the igniter with a fresh strong one, the oven will work just fine.

Smelling gas but not lighting


I've had ignitors fail that way, they don't always just burn into an open circuit. I'd advise replacing it.

Oven will not light but smell gas


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.

The oven doesn't work ,the ignator doesn't light up. no gas coming


The technical jargon is,.....:
In order for your gas oven to work this is what has to happen: 1. when you turn on the oven, the range sends 120 volts to the glow bar igniter. 2. as the igniter heats up (and starts to glow) it starts using more electricity. 3. when the electric use reaches a set amount (say 3.2 amps) the range knows the glow bar igniter is hot enough to ignite the gas, so it then releases gas through the gas safety valve. 4. when the thermostat tells the oven controller that the temperature has been reached, the control cuts power to the igniter, cutting the amp draw down, causing the safety gas valve to close. 5. process repeats to hold oven temp until you turn off oven.

So,..........the solution is:
most likely your oven igniter burnt out. Find your model number, usually on the range frame just behind the lower drawer or broiler drawer (depending on if it is a self clean gas range or not) and order the correct igniter and replace it.

GE profile stove, Gas-electric


All oven elements are 115/130 VAC. Stoves use 220/240 so that you can use both the burners and Oven at the same time. Since the burners are Gas, then 220/240 VAC isn't needed.

(Note: 220 is simply dual 110 hot leads with a common ground)
