Question about Tappan TGF657 Gas Kitchen Range

1 Answer

Firing Ingnitors I'm not sure if my Tappan is a TGF657. Its about 10 years old, 36", with openings around the burners. My husband was cooking and had a major spill, so he opened the top and cleaned underneath. Now, when its plugged in, the ignitors will fire (click) repeatedly at a long but regular interval....even though no knobs are turned. He's opened the top and gotten the clicking to stop and everything to work normal. But when the top is closed, it starts clicking again. We've had to unplug it and have been lighting the top by hand, but we can't light the oven. We can't find any wires loose; not sure if a fuse could be blown. We're wondering if there is a reset button or other procedure that we're missing. Anyone have any idea of what's going on?

But when the top is closed, it starts clicking again.....it means that wire touching body of your range. Carefuly check wire connection and insullation, re-connect, or repair damaged wire insulation or replace damaged wire.

Thermador gas cooktop explosion


I would say that pop was one of you igniters.  either that or the stove is not installed correctly and when it gets warm, thermal expansion makes the metal pop.  I would say that I would use caution and discontinue its use.  Most problems with these need to fixed professionally.

Tappan gas range burner ignition


Hello paultoledoWelcome to fixya.
I'm Huuum and happy to assist you,

You said, You got a 5-year old Tappan gas range. Two of the burners don't ignite, the other two and the oven are fine.
What do you need to do to fix the problem?
Sounds like a yes from where I'm sitting, your right on target, buying a new spark module will fix it.

That sounds like the spark modules.
I think you are correct!

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.
