Question about Tappan MPF500PBW Gas Kitchen Range

1 Answer

I have an old (20 years +) Tappanr 4 burner range with a double oven. I am missing the knob for the cleaning cycle but it says it is self cleaning. I need a replacement. I'd also like to find replacement mesh seal for the lower oven door, and I can't figure out where the broiler is. (I can't see anywhere I can broil but the lower oven has a broil cycle on the dial. Anyone know where the broiler is? or where I can get new knobs...Also, can the clock be repaired. Mine doesn't run.

Chances ar erte hlower oven door , is your broiler, the older models didnt have a seperate broiler inside oven, rather they used 1 burner bar ,and depending on wher oyu place the food you would either bake(above) or broil( under) made sense, just pain in the rear to bend down to use it. as far a knob and gasket , perhaps you can find a model number under the main top assy so we can look up for you

Self clean doesn't start


i would pop the top up and see if there is a bad switch on the handle that locks the oven.

Self-clean not cleaning


I was wrong (I think).  the baking element probably was burnt out as the repairman said.  He replaced it and I thought selfclean still wasn't working.  In fact, I think I just had to give the self-clean function more time.  Also, I was judging by smell.  We have become used to a bad odor during self clean which was missing when it was broken and still missing after the repair.  Bottom line, the oven was clean after the baking element was replaced, sans smell.

Hotpoint 30" self cleaning gas range with sealed burners - no bake


It may be the ignitor, they can crack and you wouldn't even see. Good news is they are cheap ($5-20) and they are usually easy to replace. But before you replace it...

When set to bake, does the "oven cycle" light come on? If not, that means no power is being sent to the ignitor. Reason? There is a switch in the oven latch, to make sure a) latch must be closed for cleaning cycle and b) latch must be unlocked for baking. On mine, the switch button gets stuck, so even when the latch is unlocked, it thinks it is locked and will not allow the bake cycle to proceed. Cycling the latch a few times may free it, otherwise you'll need to replace the switch (not that hard but a bit of a pain to get to).
