Question about Tappan Ovens

Open Question

I have a Tappan 400 Series with side by side ovens and the surface elements that pull out. The left (larger) oven does not heat. I just purchased the home so I don't know how long the oven hasn't heated. Everything else seems to work.

    A good firm push on the "start time" knob on clock may restore manual operation to left oven. I am assuming this is a Fabulous 400 Tappan range. On my oven the left oven has an automatic start time and stop time function that is controlled by the knobs on either side of the clock-set knob. Sometimes the right knob ("start time") gets stuck and large oven will not work manually until you unstick it.

SOURCE: oven heats up very slowly and does not get very hot

Check your power to the oven at the terminals where the power cord connects.Should be 220 volts. Also check the terminals of the bake element for loose connections or a burnt wire.

SOURCE: oven not heating up properly

You could very well have an electrical problem. You may not be getting the full 220 volts needed to make the oven function correctly. Call a local appliance technician or electrician for service.

Sounds like a thermal overload has opened up during clean. It may be mounted on the back.

SOURCE: fridgiaire Gallery series Model GLEB30T8CBA lower elements dont work

I replaced the relay board for the top oven (the one with the transformer) and it works properly now. My issue was only for the top oven so you probably have to replace both relay boards since both ovens have only the top element working.

318022002 is the part number for the relay board with transformer
318022001 is the part number for the relay board without transformer

Yes the one without the transformer is more expensive for some reason.

The boards are on the top of the oven, I was able to pull out the oven about 75% of the way out of the cabinet and easily get to the boards. Just unplugged the connections and plugged them into the new board.

To get the oven out there are two small screws that go into brackets inside the top oven door. Highly recommend taking the doors off the oven to pull it out, much easier to work with.

NOTE: On my old board I noticed one solder joint that was burned out and I since I already had the new board I just replaced but you might want to check that first and see if just a solder fix gets you working again before you spend $$ on a new board.

Help it lights up but no heat.


Dont use it! You need to pull the cooktop and see what is wrong. There is a chance that the circuit for the surface light is the only standing circuit left because the heating element is bad or loose

I am attempting to pre-heat oven to 400 degrees but oven heat will not raise above 100 degrees


Hi, Upon reading your post I immediately thought of a bad ignitor for the oven, but I am not sure whether you have a gas oven or a conventional electric range. So...If it is gas, I'd suggest replacing the ignitor for the hot surface ignition. If it's electric the bake element may be at fault although most range's use the broil in the preheat, so it should still climb up to 400, it would just take a really long time. Maybe you can clarify if it's electric or gas and I can try to move you forward from there. Macmarkus :)

unplug it
and inspect your wire connections to both sides of the element

Fitting a new heating element Neff U1721


You need to remove the element from inside the oven cavity, but it is a bit of a fiddle. Once you have removed the screws at both ends of the element you need to remove the fan blade to access the centre fixing screw. Once all srcews are remove you have to twist the element and pull forward to remove the wires from the hole on the left, then remove the wires and refit to new element.

Tappan oven won't turn on after cleaning


I don't precisely understand...responding. I assume that if you say oven on that the oven isn't heating but the indicator controls are working. This has several possibilities. First, do turn your circuit breakers off then on...there are two linked together. This may reset something. If that fails, your problems are likely in either the high limit safety switch or the heating elements. The elements are more likely. To check them, turn off the power and remove them from the oven. This is usually by taking out one screw and unclipping the element. See if the element is bulged or damaged. If not, use a multitester to see if one of them is not conducting. Replace it. High limit should conduct fully. Use the curcuit diagram on the stove to determine its location.
