What is it??? How do u do it???

I was recently given a Tappan cookstove.  It is an electric stove but doesn't have the regular coil burners.  It has more of a solid metal plate instead.  In the center of the rear left burner there is a "button" that can be pushed down.  What the heck is this for??????

Also, how do you set the clock/timer on it????????

The button is a thermostat that measures the temperature of the pan, there's probably some cutesy name for the function, but it allows you to have more regulated heat on that burner.

How do I plug back in the GE stove top burners after unplugging them?


The two leads from the burner fit into a socket in the stove top. It's a bit tricky to get it in just right. If the three metal "legs" on the burner fit snugly into the three slots on the stovetop you did it right.

I have a tappan gas range all the burners but one works when i turn it on. You can hear the flow of gas, and the oven doesnt work. what could that possible be


Electric gas igniters sometimes get stuck in one position causing a clicking sound. The clicking sound that you hear is the electric arc that is pulsing from the igniter conductor (wire) to ground (the gas burner). It receives power from the electrical outlet that the stove is plugged into.
Residue from food and sometimes cleaning products may be preventing the igniter from producing a spark (Arc) to the base of the burner. This is a common problem that occurs when the stove has been cleaned or food is allowed to build up. Make sure that the igniter and the burner base are clean and dry. This will help with proper operation. Oven cleaner and a small tooth brush may be used to accomplish this. Another problem with ignition may occur if you have too little (touching) or too much space between the igniter and the base of the burner; it will prevent the burner from igniting. You should only have a little more space than the thickness of a nickel between the burner base and the igniter. A good "blue" arc from the igniter to the burner base is optimal. If this doesn’t work, you may need to replace the electric igniter module. Good luck.

Tappan ES 200 burner stays on high and not turning off.


I need to clarify a bit.... did you remove the knob and check where the metal rod inserts into the plastic knob hole? If that is chipped on the inside, it will not turn the metal rod that comes out of the stove. Take the knob off, and use a pliers to turn the metal rod. Leave me comment if you have already checked that or you do not have that type of knob on your model.

GE profile stove, Gas-electric


All oven elements are 115/130 VAC. Stoves use 220/240 so that you can use both the burners and Oven at the same time. Since the burners are Gas, then 220/240 VAC isn't needed.

(Note: 220 is simply dual 110 hot leads with a common ground)

Tappan gas stove


I had the same problem, and finally took the rings and the covers off of the burners. I used an old toothbrush to clean everything really good, and then used a vacuum ( or you can just close your eyes and blow really hard ) around the burners. If there is a build up of junk or if a pot has ever boiled over, sometimes junk can get lodged in the little igniter and this prevents it from lighting.
