Question about Tappan MEF500 Electric Kitchen Range
I have a Tappan Model TEF326FSA Stove. The control pad looks like it's working but oven bake and broil does not heat at all. It does make the clicking noise like it is working.
Is this the clock/timer problem?
SOURCE: Tappan Gas stove
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.

Almost always a weak oven igniter. Remove oven floor by removing 2 screws at rear of floor. Remove flame spreader from burner, if it has one. Turn on oven and see if igniter gets red. It's the caged thing on burner tube. If it does but doesn't light gas, replace igniter. UNPLUG UNIT FIRST!!
Put dishwashing soap on threads of 2 screws holding igniter in place. This will allow it to come out easier. Do-not use oil. It will make your oven smell like a diesel truck.
Remove screws. You will have to remove drawer in front. Underneath you can fin wires from igniter. These will be cut at igniter and connected to igniter with enclosed wire nuts. The 2 wires to igniter go either way.

Older is BETTER !! Replace the igniter,even if it is glowing
REPLACE it !
note:there is a 2% chance the safety valve is the problem.And I'll bet you ,you are in the 98% side on this one.EVEN THOUGH YOU SEE IT GLOW -----IF ITS JUST GLOWING---------GLOWING--------GLOWING---------it's gone ! !
