Question about Tappan MEF500 Electric Kitchen Range

Open Question

Need to find a picture or a replacement oven knob for my Range

Hey there, Internet! I've got a Tippan Apartment Sized Oven model number MEF500PBWE. I've checked Tippan's Website and it appears that this model is discontinued and they do not have the parts for it. I'm in search of the middle oven knob for the range and I cannot find it ANYWHERE. Is there anyone out there who can help me find this knob? Even just a picture would help!

I suspect you may have a bad igniter. They will still glow nice and hot, but if they are weak the gas valve will not open. This is actually a safety feature. Depending on which type you have, the glow bar igniter is supposed to draw a certain current potential before the gas valve will open. Here's the current readings for both types: Round Glow Bar: 2.7 to 3.2 amps Square Glow Bar: 3.2 to 3.7 amps I would try to to determine if the igniter is good or bad before proceeding with a gas valve replacement. Generally, the igniter is a common fail item. Let me know if this helps.

SOURCE: Oven takes up to 25 min. to preheat

I would suggest looking at how long before the bake burner ignites. If taking longer than 5 minutes before it ignites, then you are looking at a possible bad ignitor. The ignitors just don't last more than 5 yrs with regular use.

SOURCE: oven temp off

You either have a plug up in your flame from dirt etc.
or your valve needs to be replaced.
Try turning off the gas and getting to the burner and clean it first.

SOURCE: tappan gas range oven makes a whisling sound

the gas pressure regulator can whistle sometimes. turn up the radio. (just kidding) I have had some new units that did this and replaced the regulator and it still did it! I was working as factory authorized service tech and my factory techline said it was a gas pressure thing. I was thinking it was the valve rather than regulator but tech guys said no. I don't know about that response but thats what I got.

My older model electric hotpoint selfcleaing range, lower oven self cleaning function is not working. what could be wrong, maybe i didn't set a control knob correctly, don't have a maual for t


Back to the fifties! If the lower oven cooks normally, the heating element probably is OK. For self cleaning the normal temperature setting is bypassed and the heating element is set to a substantially higher level. Your oven may be unable to self clean because operation of the knob may not actually start the cycle. The thermostat could need replacing even though normal cooking is OK.

I have exactly the same problem and am trawling the internet to try and solve it. My oven is gas and I've had a qualified gas engineer who is a friend look at it - he tells us we need a new safety cut out device which is basically a long wire - but i cant find it.

Everything burns before it is done in the oven


You will need to replace the temp. sensor inside the oven. If you could post your model number I can direct you to the part you need.

GE spacemaker range model number jmp28g0r1wh display goes blank and oven turns off


the model number isn't correct.check and send the model number again.if you changed the sensor this should take care of the f3 error code but the clock shouldn't go blank and oven stops.like i say your model number doesn't show up as a good number,if this machine has a fan in it you could have a bad fan motor,the fan cools off the electronics and if it isn't working the clock assy. can get hot,damage it and it will do this,also i've seen on some models there's a screen where the fan is and dust gets stuck on the screen and the fan can't blow any air,i'm just telling you what i've found before but it sounds like the clock assy. is heating up and shutting down,if there isn't a fan in your model it sounds like you have a bad clock assy.if you send the model number i can look it up for you.

I just moved into an apartment that has an older Caloric Prestige oven and range and cannot find the Pilot light--Please help


Hi, The caloric ranges use diferent types of pilot igniters, to avoid any further delays, I suggest geting the model number off the stove usually located under the stove's top, you don't need any tools just lift the range top(like when you are going to clean it) the model number is located usually on a metal plate in between the burners, or if it's not there , it will be inside the oven around the door liner or the oven liner. When you do locate the model, just go to the repair clinic.com website and type in the model number, follow instruction after that. see the following figure it might help in locating the model number: small_13_4.jpg

I don't have the model number for this range but it's a very old magic chef gas oven. What I need is the oven temperature knob. The knob used to have all of the temperature numbers printed on it however...


If you go any hardware store (Lowe's, Home Depot) they have universal knob replacement kits. Take your old knob with you and ask for help from someone who looks like they know something (the old guy). Its so much cheaper this way, exact replacement knobs can run $20 or more each. Good luck!!

Oven


Hey ascollins217
This is normal with a gas range. The oven is lit with an ignitor (the glowing that is seen) - it glows first then the gas comes on and lights up shortly afterwards. There is no clicking sound for the oven (at least not for the model you have)
