Question about Tappan Ovens
Tappan wallmount oven.
mfg date 1961, EOWV-510, mod EOV-510, pt# 191T100F02
I don't think this oven was ever used-looks new inside and out.
Analog Clock system control. Looking at the mechinism it seems to have a main clock with an alarm(start) hand, and a bake time dial with a manual position. Knobs are very hard to turn. There is an actuator on the back of clock that should close a switch, in auto start from the clock or from the manual position. When I put the bake time switch in manual it seems to lock the actuator in position away from switch. I have used a screw driver to close the switch, and the oven works.
ANY fixes or available parts out there for this unit
SOURCE: GE Oven bake element not work
It sounds like a problem with the selector switch. You have to remove the back panel to get to the back of the switch in the head unit, and find what wire goes from there to the bake element. With a meter set on 240ACV, or whichever setting is on yours that's HIGHER than that i.e. 400ACV, with the red probe on the terminal and the black one going to ground, see if you are getting 210-240 through it. If so, then it's either a faulty neutral wire connection (the other wire coming out of the element) or the selector switch. Hope this helps.

You have a problem that may be solved with my solution to the Dreaded F7 Problem. Even though you don't have a F7 error on the display the symptoms are all the same. You can find my fix at the following links.
I have shared this with more than 1550 folks and most report success. This problem often develops after a self clean cycle.
I hope it works for you too. Please let me know at the following:

Hi, You press the second and third button in together, hold them in and use the + or - buttons to set the time.

I had exactly the same problem. I followed the directions to reset the clock. That is the cooking button and finish cooking button. They look like a caserole dish and a casserole dish with a cross through it. Hold them down at the same time and the + and - button to advance the time. Be aware I had to try this a few times before it worked. Hope this helps, Dean
