Gas smell, oven not heating up



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.

You could do the repair yourself. Much more information is needed. Is your oven spark ignition or hot surface ignition ? A valve may be opening only partially. This can happen on a hot surface ignition system when the glow bar is starting to malfunction. Need to know more details to be of real help.

Turn oven on and smell gas will not light


I had the same problem when I bought a house with a gas range. If you wait ten seconds or more there is a unit that heats up and ignites the range instead of a pilot. You will hear a click every few seconds then while it ignites the stove. I was afraid to wait because I smelled the gas. But after paying someone $100 for a service call that is what happened.

It is electrical and in the back of my stove there is a cord that goes in the wall. make sure it is plugged in. It also affects the burners however they have a light option on the dial, the oven does not.

Hope that helps.

Tappan TGFS26C, Oven igniter not even


Lets take the oven problem first. Sounds like you have a Hot Surface Ignitor problem. This is the device that glows and lights the burner. You can buy a universal ignitor at most appliance or heating and air conditioning supply houses. Note carefully how the old one is mounted. You may have to make some adjustments to mount the new ignitor, but it MUST be close to the gas burner like the old one! You don't smell gas because the gas valve will not open until the ignitor is hot. All ignitors work with the same voltage, so simply connect the new wires to the old ones.

I'm not certain if you have a standing pilot for the stove top burners or electronic ignition. Remove the top panel to check. If you have a gas pilot, relight it. If electronic ignition, clean the ignitors. If that does not solve the problem you may have to call a technician, as these systems can be complex.

Hope this helps.
