Question about Tappan Kitchen Ranges
Model # tgf317esc
I am the manual on this one. A simple design. Oven works like this. Power is going to the ignitor and gas valve when oven is on. The ignitor must draw at least 3.5 amps to open the bimetal safety valve. If it looks dim orange chances iz that puppy is too weak to open the gaz safety valve.

the gas pressure regulator can whistle sometimes. turn up the radio. (just kidding) I have had some new units that did this and replaced the regulator and it still did it! I was working as factory authorized service tech and my factory techline said it was a gas pressure thing. I was thinking it was the valve rather than regulator but tech guys said no. I don't know about that response but thats what I got.

Hello paultoledoWelcome to fixya.
I'm Huuum and happy to assist you,
You said, You got a 5-year old Tappan gas range. Two of the burners don't ignite, the other two and the oven are fine.
What do you need to do to fix the problem?
Sounds like a yes from where I'm sitting, your right on target, buying a new spark module will fix it.
That sounds like the spark modules.
I think you are correct!
Let me know if you need me!
Please remember to leave a solved rating!

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.

I CALLED TAPPAN DIRECTLY. THEY HAD ME TRIP THE BREAKERS WHICH DID NOT HELP. THEN I HAD THE GAS CO COME OUT TO MAKE SURE THERE WASN'T A GAS LEAK. THE CLOCK STOPPED BEEPING ON IT'S OWN AFTER THE SERVICE MAN MOVED THE STOVE OUT TO INSPECT IT. THE NEXT STEP WOULD HAVE BEEN TO HAVE A TAPPAN SERVICE COME OUT, BUT I GUESS I'LL NEVER KNOW WHAT THE REASON WAS. HOPE IT DOESN'T HAPPEN AGAIN,.
