Tappan Oven does not heat up

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?

Thanks

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.

Stove on bake didn't get above 265 and never red.


It is possible the bake element has gone out and just the broil element is heating the oven. It is very common that the broil element is either powered by 120 volts while the bake element is energized in bake or it is pulsed by an electronic control.

Tappan oven won't come on


follow this steps and fix it.God bless you
Power Cord
If the power cord fails you still may have the control portion working but no bake or some other functions. The reason this happens is the oven takes in 220 volts then splits that to 2 110 lines. Some for the controls, lights, bake and broils elements, and stove top. If your cord has failed on one half of the 220 line or the terminal block were the wires are connected may have melted or failed. You may need to replace the power cord and terminal block.

Heating Element
This is usually the problem. To Check this first turn oven on to a bake setting,say @350, check to see if element glows, if not shut oven off. If it is warm but does not glow it is getting power and the elements need to replaces. If it does not get warm remove the element and check to see if it is getting power if it does get power replace the element. No power it is the main control that has failed. Check element for continuity, if none replace.

Temperature Sensor
This is a long thin tube like part located usually in the top rear of the oven. It is held in by 2 screws. This can easily be removed by removing the 2 screws and carefully pulling it out. Usually there will be wires connected and insulation so you will need to work it out. Then unplug the connector and check with an ohmeter. It Should have around 1000-1100 ohms if not replace sensor. Some will have a thin capillary tube attached in this case the problem will be in the control attached to this tube.

Main Control
This can cause your oven not to heat. Sometimes the oven relay gets burned out, when this happens the control is unable to send power to the bake element. There will usually be separate relays for bake and broil if you have 2 different elements. If your heating element gets no power replace the control. If your control does not respond at all check to if youhave power entering the control. If you do and it does not respond replace control board No power to the control Check or replace the power cord .

My spectra stove's oven is not working, the burners work, the broil works, but my oven will not heat up


Hi.

The JBP78 is electric, since you are talking about a gas oven I think the model is incorrect.

Talking about a gas ovens:

If the oven is not heating up and both broiling and baking burners are working and coming up then check the temperature probe sensor and the control board.

If one of the two burners is not firing check the ignitor, the burner and coil, the burner and flame sensor. The most common problems come from defective ignitor.

Regards.

Tappan oven "turns on" by "itself" ??? Control


I cannot solve this problem yet. We have the same problem. However in ours if we turn the temperature know to off (the other knob is set to off - time bake, bake, broil, clean, etc - set to off) then it will not run. Somehow that temperature knob with the electrical control is making it turn on. Ours started to do this on the same day!

My broiler works - but the oven does not - GE Dual Fuel range


Thanks for providing the full model number, which allows us to look up part numbers and see exploded views of your product.
Most likely the bake ignitor is bad (even if it still glows, it may not draw enough amperage to allow the gas safety valve to open). One way you can test this on your model is to swap out the broil ignitor for the bake ignitor, as they are the same part number on your model. (part number WB13T10045) The broiler is normally used much less than the oven, so the part does not fail very often on the broiler. You will have to take the cover off the floor of the oven, then the flame spreader, to reach the burner area. The ignitor is the rectangular part at the back, on the side of the burner. (only two wires to deal with) (By the way, for future reference, your model number ends is SS, as in stainless steel, not a 55)

TAPPAN gas range model 30-3991-00/03 oven won't work.


the button your holding is the switch that tells the board that the consumer whats to bake.so if holding the switch causes that message to work[or oven to heat] and letting go of that button ,then no work .its that button ,but its all part of the board .just that part of its funktion is broken.,if it was lets say your oven ignitor or oven gas safty valve ,the board/oven control[the one with the button]would continue to try after you have selected bake [pushed button]or would give error code.hope that helps you.
