Tappan Gas stove: oven/broiler won't turn on

In the display screen of my Tappan gas stove, a symbol (looks like half of a capital "H" followed by a dot) appeared and I can't turn on the oven/broiler, or clear it (none of the buttons work). However, the burners on the stove top work. What does this mean? How do I fix it so I can use the oven/broiler again? Please help, I'm desperate!

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.

SOURCE: Whirlpool Super Capacity 465 the oven/broiler does not come on.

More than likely a bad ignitor
Here is how to tell If the ignitor is glowing it should be VERY bright, if it is dim orange it is weak and bad.

SOURCE: Replacement Parts For Vintage Magic Chef stove

You probably have a 1940's model of Magic Chef. Check for the model number under the lid of the cook top on the upper right hand side of the stove. It should have the model number and the serial number, too. You will need both. The Old Applicance Club run by Jack Santoro is the place to go along with a site called "Antique gas stoves"in Georgia. Good luck with the world of vintage stoves.

Indesit oven keeps heating


Tappan gas range, TGF334BCWB. I can NOT stop the broiler burner from lighting. I have unplugged the 110 power and I light top burner with a striker. However when stove is plugged in to the power the broiler burner lights and continues to burn. The oven knob is turned OFF. The only way to stop the broiler is to unplug the power.

I would check with your manufacturer and see if a professional can diagnose the regulator and even the gas valve itself.

Hello, Can't find model/serial number. Older Tappan custom gas stove. Burners work but oven does not. Told it has electric ignition that could be problem. Where to find it, how to remove, where to get...


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
Oven back.

If this unit is anything less than 20 years old, there will be a label somewhere.

Reply back you findings and I can give you more information as to how to repair, and we can identify part numbers. You might also try www.repairclinic.com and see if you can drill down through parts when only knowing the manufacturer.

I have a double gas oven and no instructions


I have an O'Keefe & Merritt double oven gas stove. The model number is 72 7242 23. The upper oven is about the size of a large microwave and sits above the range burners. The lower (full-size) oven is below the burner unit and includes a broiler draw below it.
So, when you say, double oven, I wonder if you are just talking about the main oven with broiler drawer (both of which are below the burner unit.)

Mine was a builder-supplied appliance in the new house we purchased in 1986. The upper oven has never performed very well. And, yes the upper oven can only be used for baking.

I have an instruction manual for it, but it doesn't provide that much information. Getting parts for it is extremely difficult, since Tappan is no longer manufacturing this brand. (I've been trying to locate a flat oven ignitor for the upper oven and can't seem to find a replacement that's the same 6-1/3" length.) In the 1980s Tappan apparently purchased O'Keefe & Merritt and marketed this brand for several years. Models originally manufactured by O'Keefe & Merritt in the 1930s-1950s are considered collectible antique stoves!
