Question about Tappan TGF320 Gas Kitchen Range
My tappan oven doesn't always light. The igniter gets red hot but the gas valve doesn't always open. Some times if I jar the oven or turn on a burner on the stove the valve will open and the oven will light. Once it lights it works fine until it sits for a while. Is it possible that the gas valve needs a good cleaning?

The pilot adjustment screw is located on the back side of the oven temperature thermostat. Lift the cook top to access it. Use a flat screwdriver to adjust... counter clockwise= bigger flame.

You need to check the connection at the back of the unit that hooks to the house power. Turn off breakers or pull fuses before checking. It sounds like you only have half of the voltage you need. One of the wire connectors may be burnt or you may have a problem with the house wiring.

Serial number labels are usually located in any one of a number of places -
Under the cooktop in one of the corners
Inside the oven door frame (not on the door)
Behind the bottom drawer pullout on the oven, left hand side
If this unit is anything less than 20 years old, there will be a label somewhere.
