The oven/stove is from the 70's and the pilot light is on but the oven will not heat up. help


Thank you for bringing me back to the early days of my appliance repair career,now a days every thing uses a electronic ignitor and its been a while since i have seen a free standing pilot :)

As far as your oven,when you turn on the oven does the small pilot light increase in size,if not the oven thermostat is the most likely problem and for the most part the thermostats are no longer avaliable. If the pilot size increases the pilot burner could be not properly heating a small bulb in the pilot burner,the pilot burner could be cleaned by a senior tech that knows how to do it correctly OR the small bulb is heating and what that the bulb attaches to (the gas safety vavle) is not opening to allow gas flow to the main bake burner
Depending on your exact model (what parts were used when it was built) the pilot burner and gas safety valve are still avaliable

Burners work properly. Stove won't heat. Pilot light is out. Won't re-light with a match. When the stove is on the rectangular flint block heats up and glows orange.

Hi, Jus because it glows that does not mean it is not bad...
The ignitor is not working right and is going bad....
have the repair man replace the ignitor, or DIY....

You have to light burners on stovetop with a match all the time.

The pilots for the range top are beneath the top of the range top. YOu will see them if they are there. YOu stove may use electronic ignition and you can hear the sparking when you turn the knob to the "light" position.

If it is electronic ignition, make sure the stove is plugged into an operating outlet

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.

Tappan Gas stove

The pilot adjustment screw is located on the back side of the oven temperature thermostat. Lift the cook top to access it. Use a flat screwdriver to adjust... counter clockwise= bigger flame.
