Slight GAs odor

I have an older Tappan GAs range- model # 30-2761-00/06. When I enter this # on any of the sites for an owner's manual, it says # not found.  Anyway, if you stand right over the stove there is an odor of gas. It has electronic ignitions. I looked to see if maybe something was clogged or dirty, but nothing was eveident. Everything lights and works properly except the broiler which stopped working 2 yaers ago. This odor has only been here a few days. Any suggestions?

Most all Gas Companies will check any apliance for leaks for free. Just tell them you "smell gas" and thats all.

 

Any repairs to a Gas appliance should be done by a Licensed Contractor or yoiur local Gas company.

 

I have repaired Gas appliances for years and NEVER ADVISED a CUSTOMER to touch anything involving GAS. It is not worth the RISK.

 

Be safe ...

Call your local gas company immediately. If the range is on a flexible gas connector, you should be able to pull it out and get to the cut off valve behind the range.

TAPPAN GAS RANGE MODEL NUMBER MPF500PBWD


the owners manual will not give you any repair info. Only use instructions. Your model has an oven safety gas valve that opens only after the secondary pilot heats the end of capillary properly. You may need to clean/replace the pilot assembly OR replace the oven safety valve. If you need the valve, look on ebay because these things are over $275 from Tappan.

Older Tappan range oven not lighting.


There is no way to light the oven manually. The gas valve will not open until the oven ignitor draws enough current. But replacing the ignitor will fix ya up.

Tappan Gas Range


Most likely has "ON PILOTS" As opposed to (electronic ignition/ Ignitors).. Change the stove to a more efficient model and being gas do "NOT" Do it yourself Period!.(Please)..Install should be tested and approved..
Call a local professional specialized in LP/Natural Gas Appliances. Flex lines on older Stoves tended to break down causing leaks as well as older construction codes where Black pipe feeds and shut-off valves break down after time. Sorry for the Negative info but Ive seen some Slum-lord homes in my days doing service calls.. Keep it shut off until you can get it fixed professionally..
