    my range is a tappan electric designer series. I have no idea how to operate it. it has buttons that read, "preheat", "bake" "varibroil" "bake time" "stop time", arrow up, arrow down, timer, and cancel.



    i do not know how to turn the oven on or off. Can you help me?

1. Add baking soda to a cool oven. Sprinkle a thick layer of baking soda onto the bottom of the oven. Make sure the oven is completely cool before you attempt to do this. 2. Spray the baking soda with water. Using a spray bottle, spray the baking soda down until it is damp, not saturated. The water and baking soda together will help break down the food particles. 3. Continue spraying baking soda as it dries out. Every few hours spray the baking soda down again to keep it moist. Continue this process over several hours, spraying water as the baking soda begins to dry out. 4. Scrape out the baking soda. Scrape the baking soda out of the oven. Food residue will be scraped out with the baking soda. 5. Rinse the bottom of the oven out thoroughly. Yes, you'll still have to rinse out the oven, but next time you cook your food won't have an added taste of oven cleaner.

If I had the rest of your model number I may find what Tappan now Fridgedaire Electrolux reccomends, but this is the least toxic. Have a great day..

I have an older Tappan Centenniel range with a self cleaning oven. I have lost the book and need to know how to clean the oven. It is probably a late 70's model.

Lost my manual. how do i clean my self cleaning Gemini double ovens


would need the model #, but generally, the top oven is manual clean. To clean larger oven, press clean, then up or down next to the timer to determine how long you want the self clean to run.

Tappan double oven


I have the digital timer oven and also cannot find the manual. You have to set the bake time timer, I think for 3 hours. Then you set the oven knob on clean and turn on the temp knob, probably to full but I don't think it matters. When you engage the lock, the clean light should come on/ When the oven reaches high temp, the lock light will also be on.
