Tappan Gas stove

I have older model Tappan gas stove with pilot light. I found the adjustment for the burner pilot light but I did not find adjustment for Oven burner pilot. I can see my oven pilot is weak. Oven control knob had LP, OFF and Nat option. I clean the tube and valve but still not much help.

Re: 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.

I just moved into a condo I am renting and the Tappan gas oven/stove stays hot when it is not even on. The part that is hot is the top between the burners. Is that normal?

Probably the pilot light. You should be able to lift the top of the stove for cleaning ... try lifting it ... to see and verify for yourself this is the case.

This is very typical of a stove fired by a pilot light.

You have to light burners on stovetop with a match all the time.

The pilots for the range top are beneath the top of the range top. YOu will see them if they are there. YOu stove may use electronic ignition and you can hear the sparking when you turn the knob to the "light" position.

If it is electronic ignition, make sure the stove is plugged into an operating outlet

Pilot blights wont stay lit on older model American gas range

Take a very small wire and clean out the pilot holes. Then find the pilot flame adjustment screw and re-set your pilot to 1/4 inch flame.

Tappan TGFS26C, Oven igniter not even

Lets take the oven problem first. Sounds like you have a Hot Surface Ignitor problem. This is the device that glows and lights the burner. You can buy a universal ignitor at most appliance or heating and air conditioning supply houses. Note carefully how the old one is mounted. You may have to make some adjustments to mount the new ignitor, but it MUST be close to the gas burner like the old one! You don't smell gas because the gas valve will not open until the ignitor is hot. All ignitors work with the same voltage, so simply connect the new wires to the old ones.

I'm not certain if you have a standing pilot for the stove top burners or electronic ignition. Remove the top panel to check. If you have a gas pilot, relight it. If electronic ignition, clean the ignitors. If that does not solve the problem you may have to call a technician, as these systems can be complex.

Hope this helps.
