Tappan MGF500PBW- Oven starts and lights but then goes out

I have a Tappan MGF500PBWE gas oven that just started having problems
The Oven starts normally and then after 5-10 minutes, the burner goes down and out- just leaving the pilot lit.
This happens even if the oven is not fully warmed up and the setting set to broil
any suggestions would be appreciated

TAPPAN GAS RANGE MODEL NUMBER MPF500PBWD


the owners manual will not give you any repair info. Only use instructions. Your model has an oven safety gas valve that opens only after the secondary pilot heats the end of capillary properly. You may need to clean/replace the pilot assembly OR replace the oven safety valve. If you need the valve, look on ebay because these things are over $275 from Tappan.

THE FLAME IS YELLOW AND PUT SUIT ON MY POTS HOW DO I CORRECT


The spuds need adjustment on the top burner gas valves. The oven safety valve needs adjustment too. Get a good fitting wrench and tighten down the spuds till the yellow goes away. Adjust the air shutters as needed.

I just converted a Tappan stove to lp and cant get to light. It acts like no propane is getting to the burners and pilots.


HI, Things to check. Did you reverse the cap on the regulator? Adjust the oven orfice by turning it clockwise until it reached the bottom of the threads? Some mofels have a small shut off on the gas valve as well.
Change the burner orfices?
Make sure the gas shut off valve is turned on all the way?
Just a check list. I hope this helps you.

I suspect you may have a bad igniter. They will still glow nice and hot, but if they are weak the gas valve will not open. This is actually a safety feature. Depending on which type you have, the glow bar igniter is supposed to draw a certain current potential before the gas valve will open. Here's the current readings for both types: Round Glow Bar: 2.7 to 3.2 amps Square Glow Bar: 3.2 to 3.7 amps I would try to to determine if the igniter is good or bad before proceeding with a gas valve replacement. Generally, the igniter is a common fail item. Let me know if this helps.
