Question about Tappan Ovens

Open Question

Oven will not turn on.

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

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.

SOURCE: Kleenmaid Scala Oven. My oven will not turn on.

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

Seal on Tappan wall oven came off, what to do?


Hey friend, I appreciate your post!
I understand that seal on your Tappan wall oven has come off. In order to provide you additional information regarding the seal I would need your model number and serial number. You can locate the serial tag (which has your model number listed) on the front of the oven on the left side. With that information I could provide you additional assistance. I look forward to your response. -Matt

I have a designer series self cleaning oven and I have lost the instruction manual of how to clean the oven.


Hello janicejoh679, there is no manual for YOU to clean the oven, it's a self cleaning oven. Okay, please pardon my loose sense of humor.
A friend of mine was able to get a free replacement instruction manual from Tappan off of their website several weeks ago, I think she typed, " tappan", in the google search bar to find their official website.
I hope the info helps you,
Good luck!

Tappan gas range model 72-3981-00/07. Upper oven does not ignite even though the igniter comes on and glows yellow.


The ignitor is weak and must be replaced. When you get the new ignitor turn off the gas supply and the power to replace the ignitor.
Remove the oven racks,remove the oven base pan,remove the flame spreader to access the ignitor.

Tappan gas oven won't turn on


Hello,
I cannot assist you with your problem, but I do have the same oven and it seems the control panel doesn't work either. However, I am looking for the manual. Would you perhaps be able to help me with that? Sincerely, S. Rozier

Wall Oven won't work


I tried randomly pushing 2 buttons at a time, and when I pushed "Timer Off/On" and "Cancel" together it unlocked and is now working fine. The following day it beeped a lot for an hour or so (must have been catching up on previous pushes) but now is back to normal.
