Question about Tappan 30IN ELEC IGNa Oven

1 Answer

The top burners don't light and I don't hear any clicking noise when I first turn the Knob to "lite". The burner does work when I put a match to it and turn one burner on. Should I get a spark Module and installit. I don't know much about appliances.

    Yes the oven light works and the oven turns on and heats. It is only the top burners that do not turn on nor do they Click when turned to Lite.

    I am not at the stove until next weekend. If the connections are good then what do you think it is?

Make sure your getting power to 120V receptacle that oven is plugged into first, by testing receptacle with a lamp or something. Breaker may have tripped, but if clock & lamp in oven working, then power should be o.k. If all o.k. there, lift stove top & check all small wires for proper connections, and back to main module.

How to Troubleshoot a Gas Range Oven That Won't Heat
By Kefa Olang, eHow Contributor
Although gas range oven may prove useful for cooking and baking, they may fail to ignite if they aren't properly maintained and set up. Lighting a gas range often involves simply turning a knob; however, blockages from food particles and debris caught in the burners, improper burner cap installation and gas supply are common problems that interfere with your gas range oven's performance. A few troubleshooting guidelines may solve these problems safely.

      Inspect the small vertical holes on the side of your burners for dirt, food and debris. The gas won't ignite if they are clogged. Scrape dirt, debris and food from the vertical holes using a pointy object such as a toothpick or paperclip.

      Reinstall the burner caps properly. If they are tilted or wobbly, the gas may not ignite. Install the caps on the right burners. Some burners are smaller than others, so match the caps to the appropriate burners.

      Move the burner knob to the "Lite" position and wait for the gas to ignite. If it ignites, rotate the knob to your desired setting. If it doesn't ignite, contact a qualified appliance technician.

My oven wont turn off from the knob it keeps turning


You didn't say whether you have a gas or electric oven, or oven & stove. I'll assume you have a stove, just to cover all bases.

First, you should shut down the oven: a gas stove will have a valve on the gas line behind the stove. The valve will either have a red handle or a flat stem that usually has a hole in it. Turn either valve 1/4 turn to shut off gas, use a wrench on the flat stem. An electric stove should be shut off by flipping off the double circuit breaker for it in your electric panel. Do not unplug an electric stove when it is on; this can damage the plug &/or electrocute you.

Most likely the inside of the knob has stripped out. Look at the knob for a hole that has a setscrew in it: a small allen wrench or screwdriver will loosen the setscrew, most knobs don't have them and will pull off. Be careful to use even pressure on two sides of the knob; if you can't pull it off, use two butter knives or flat screw drivers to pry it up enough to get a grip on it.

Look at the center stem on the back of the knob, it will likely be cracked or stripped. Some stems have a D-shaped metal insert that strips out inside the plastic stem. If you have one, pull off a burner knob and compare the stems in the back, if they are the same size, put the burner knob on the shaft for the oven control, and use that knob to turn the oven control off.

If the burner knob won't fit, use your fingers or a pair of pliers (gently) to turn off the oven control shaft. If the shaft stops normally, you can turn the stove back on using either the gas valve or the circuit breaker. If you have a gas stove that doesn't have electric ignition (a clicking noise when you turn on a burner) you may need to re-light the pilots for the burners. Lift the covers off the burners to re-light the pilots.

If you have succeeded in turning off the oven, you need a new knob -- you can get one at an appliance parts store or maybe a hardware store. If the oven control did not turn off normally, I would leave the oven/stove turned off: the control itself will need to be replaced by a qualified repair person.

How do I lift the stove top to turn off pilot model # FGF366DCB?


there isn't a pilot in it,it has an electronic spark module in it.what problem are you having?when you turn it to lite it you'll hear a clicking sound,that's the sparking that lites the gas just like you're gas grill.if you want to remove the top you have to remove the two phillips screws out of each burner head,sometimes they don't come out and you have to drill them out,if the burner isn't shutting off the gas valve could be broke or the knob could be broke,if it's clicking just unplug it and you can lite the top burners with a match or bbq clicker to lite them until you get it fixed depending on what problem you are having.if the gas won't shut off by turning the knob you'll have to shut down the gas at the valve that feeds the stove.but like i said if you want to lift the top you have to remove all the screws in the burner heads.hope this helps you out.http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Frigidaire-Parts/Range-Parts/Model-FGF366DCB/1428/0124002?pathTaken=&prst=0&shdMod=FGF366DCB go to this site and you can look up your machine.

Hi there. there is no spark to ignite the gas in oven.


You will need to replace the spark module if you don't hear any clicking, or there is no spark present when trying to ignite the gas.

To test the Spark Module:
When properly operating, the spark module repeatedly produces a spark at the ignitor accompanied by a sharp snapping sound.
  1. Turn off gas and power supply to unit.
  2. Check wiring diagram to verify all terminals and wire connections are correct and tight with no cuts in the wiring.
  3. Prepare to measure voltage on spark module from terminal L to N.
  4. Turn power supply back on.
  5. Turn top burner to LITE position.
  6. If no voltage is present on the meter, this will indicate the electrical circuit is interrupted before the spark module
  7. If voltage is present, then check ignitor.
  8. If ignitors are ok; then replace spark module.
To access the Spark Module:
  1. Turn off electrical power and gas to the range.
  2. Disconnect gas and power from unit.
  3. Remove screws securing top surface burners.
  4. Remove surface burner and disconnect spark ignitor wire from surface burner.
  5. Raise and remove maintop from unit.
  6. Remove screws securing spark module bracket.
  7. Disconnect wire terminals from spark module.
  8. Replace and reassemble in reverse order.

SF 3000 EWWO how to light pilot


You can raise the top lid of the stove to light the pilot lights for the top burners.
The oven is controlled by a electric glowbar ignitor.
Make sure the cord is plugged into a electrical outlet.
If it is and the oven does not work the glowbar ignitor must be replaced.

Whirlpool 465. The top range burners will not ignite. I can hear and smell the gas. The oven burner works fine. Do I need to replace an ignitor for the range?


The bake is seperate from the burner ignition system. You may need a new spark module for the top burners. All burners should spark at the same time even if you are only trying to lite one burner.

Mid 90's Magic Chef gas stove


hi there,

since you can smell gas, you have a gas leak. i would recomend checking and cleaning the gas valves. if you can hear sparking, that means it's just the valves. sometimes cleaning the rods will fix the problem.
