Safety valve is stuck or the ignitor is weak. Tap on the valve while the ignitor is glowing with the plastic end of a large screwdriver. If it lights replace the ignitor. If it does not replace the valve and the ignitor.

Tappan gas range model 72-3981-00/07. Upper oven does not ignite even though the igniter comes on and glows yellow.


The ignitor is weak and must be replaced. When you get the new ignitor turn off the gas supply and the power to replace the ignitor.
Remove the oven racks,remove the oven base pan,remove the flame spreader to access the ignitor.

Oven ignitor will not light flame


When ignitor gets worn it will come on but not get hot enough to open the gas valve. You will need a new ignitor

Tappan Millennia range's baking component doesn't work.


Your ignitor has gone out or is no longer drawing enough current to open the gas valve. Replace the oven ignitor and it will fix your problem.

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.
