Question about Tappan TGF320 Gas Kitchen Range
I replaced the oven gas control valve. Still doesn't light. I am not sure but I think there is no power to the control valve. The tag on the valve says it is 3.3 vac. Not sure where to go from here?
Jeff, i read your other ? here and 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.
if you have no glow, then its a whole different problem. to be addressed in next comments.
