Question about Tappan TGF657 Gas Kitchen Range
Hi there Stove expert meisters!
I have a Tappan gas oven, electric ignite. Model 30-3352-00-03, it is a little over 14 years old. Oven set at 350, on for 35 minutes, only heavy gas smell, food inside still frozen, inside oven thermometer didn't register any change. I had to run an errand (someone was home with oven on) & came home to smell bad gas odor. Turned off the oven, called the gas company, they sent someome out & turned off the main gas control. Now I am in search of an answer of what part I need to replace to get baking again, please help!
Thanks - The BakerMeister !!
You gas oven uses a glowbar to both regulate and ignite the gas entering the oven. If this glowbar is faulty, it might let some gas into the oven but it is not hot enough to ignite the gas. That is why you are smelling gas. I would suggest to start by replacing the glowbar (and if this is not the solution, simply return the part for a refund). The part you are looking for can be found online here: http://www.partselect.com/PartDetail.aspx?Inventory=470129&SourceCode=1
It is quite easy to replace. Simply remove the free-standing pan on the bottom of the oven, unscrew the existing glowbar, remove the back cover from the stove and trace the two wires that belong to the glowbar and unplug them. Thread the two wires from the new glowbar through the opening and reconnect to the plugs at the back of the stove. Screw in the new glowbar and test. Most oven ignition problems are caused by faulty glowbard. Good luck.
