Tappan Neon Lamp Problem

I have a Tappan electric oven. When the oven is turned on, a neon lamp light on the control panel turns on with the oven heating element. Recently, I have noticed that when the oven is turned off, the neon panel lamp does not extinguish completely. It dims about 90% and flickers slightly. Nevertheless, the heating element is completely cold. Is this characteristic of a neon lamp failure, or is something else wrong?

SOURCE: Oven does not light

even if the ingitor glows, and the oven wont lite, the odds are that the ingitor is bad. it must draw 3.2 amps to open the gas valve. the only way to test the ignitor is with an amp probe. replacing the ingnitor is about 90% a sure thing.

It is very common for elements to "catch fire" when they fail. It is really electical arching. But to answer your question you shouldnt be concerned if it ever happens to the bottom element immediatly kill the breaker it will stop instantly. dont use a fire extinguisher as it wont stop the arching. And most ovens do use the upper broil element for baking for very short intervals like 10secs on every minute or so to brown the top of product. Some models (especially older builder line ) do not

You need to check the connection at the back of the unit that hooks to the house power. Turn off breakers or pull fuses before checking. It sounds like you only have half of the voltage you need. One of the wire connectors may be burnt or you may have a problem with the house wiring.

My 2001 dodge neon, turn signals , hazards, and brake lights do not work. 3rd brake light does work though. Any ideas?


Maybe something wrong with multifunction switch? Your lower stop lamps are wired through the multifunction switch, the high mount stop lamp isn't wired that way. The lower brake lamps and turn signal, use the same bulb filament, just not at the same time. Sometimes, you can click on diagram to enlarge, if not, click on your highlighted post, sometimes on that page, you can enlarge.

Wire diagram to make sure three wires are connected correctly to the lighted rocker switch


Normally the neutral lead of the lamp is a different color. If you have a ohm meter you can use it to look for a short between two terminals, this is the switch. The lamp is likely a neon lamp that you can not read with a meter, neon must have over 60V to light.

Broil LED light stays on


It is possible that the lamp is being powered through a ground loop in the stove or a contact in the control, is not disengaging. The lamp is possibly a neon bulb and I have had this happen . It is usually not a big concern and difficult to track downif it is a ground loop.

Engine runs rough after a few miles


Easy way to check plugs wires while driving, get 4 or 6 small neon lamps depending on how many cylinders,the neon lamps used in appliances to show they are on are good NOT LEDs.
Remove resistors from neon and connect one side of neon lamps together and earth to body, take other side of each lamp and solder long single telephonr wire and wind about 10 turns around each plug wire insulation a little way from plug leave end of this wire disconnected. make sure the end of wire does not earth anywhere on body leave unconnected. the high voltage going through plug wire will induce enough voltage to fire neon and show plug works if one neon does not flicker as plug fires it the bad one.
This will only show electrical misfire not injector problem.
The best time to do this test is at night neons will flicker bright at night. As a mechanic how to check injector and injector voltage.

Bottom oven is not working even though the top one is 720EF model


When you turn the bottom oven on, does the fan start to run in the oven? Do the oven lights come on? Does the main cooling fan switch on? Does the oven control knob illuminate? Does the thermostat neon illuminate?
As a guide, the power/control for the bottom oven is via the main switch on the front panel. Power then goes from the switch through the thermostat to the the oven/element/fan. The lights go direct from the switch.
I hope this helps.

Zanussi electric double oven. Top oven not working.


It sounds like a faulty thermostat, because when you turn the thermostat on it should supply the oven element and the neon light, so even if the element is faulty, the neon light should still come on regardless of the element working or not.
Hope this helps.

  2. While pressing the brake pedal, insert switch into the keyed hole in the bracket and rotate the switch into the locked position.
  3. Gently pull back on the brake pedal until the pedal will go no further. This will cause the switch plunger to ratchet backward to the correct position. No further adjustment is necessary.

My oven does not work at all.


Put a lanp in the same outlet that the stove is hooked to, If the lamp does not light then you popped a circuit breaker for that line. If the lamp works then you blue a fuse that is probable in the control panel of the oven. I hope this helps
