Wall oven removal and installation

I'm going to help my Mom by taking out her old tappan wall oven and install the new one. Can someone tell me how the oven comes out? How is it held in, does it come out in pieces or as one unit? Can I expect a flexible gas line?

Turn off the gas. Look in the front of the oven for mounting screws. Open the door and look inside the frame for mounting screws. Remove the mounting screws,slide the oven out carefully,it will be heavy. Unplug the cord.Disconnect the gas line. Set the oven aside in one piece.

There will be a removable panel that allows you to access the gas valve and line. There will be clips/brakets that hold the unit to the wall and the unit comes out as all one peice. (with the exception of the access panels of course.

You will "probably" have a flex gas line, but if not just look for a union for the disconnect. (usually found near the gas valve.)

I have an old 24 single wall Tappan oven from around 1985 that needs to be replaced. There is no model or serial number. Where can I go to figure out the measurements of it?


Built in ovens come in three standard widths, 24, 27 and 30.

Look at the installation guide in the link for a sears for the 24 inch and confirm the width of your opening along with the depth. Make sure the new does not exceed your dimensions..

The problem is usually in the height. There is a lip that extends outside the inside dimensions so the over all width and height need not to extend beyond you cabinet. You can jack up the bottom with spacers to minimize any upper gap.

Desperately searching for User Manual for Tappan Wall Oven Model 12-4990-00-04.


Hello Owner, thank you for your inquiry!
I understand that you need the use and care manual for your Tappan wall oven, 12-4990-00-04. If the model is older than ten years old manufacturers will not keep that information available. You might be able to perform a search for antique models online for any additional information. -Matt

Seal on Tappan wall oven came off, what to do?


Hey friend, I appreciate your post!
I understand that seal on your Tappan wall oven has come off. In order to provide you additional information regarding the seal I would need your model number and serial number. You can locate the serial tag (which has your model number listed) on the front of the oven on the left side. With that information I could provide you additional assistance. I look forward to your response. -Matt

I have a 1965 gaffers & sattler wall oven with the oven on the top and the broiler on the bottom. It began having issues lighting even though the pilot light was on. Now the burner doesn't light up at...


My Mom has a 1965 Gaffler & Stattler Mark 21 wall mount oven, it had the "Same Problem", People may tell you that the flame switch is no longer avalible but I found a universal fit flame switch at Applance Parts Center, I took the old part in and had it matched up, with a minor modification to the thermal sensor mounting bracket, "drilling a larger hole and lightly crimping it", it's a perfect fit, "problem solved". You may want to try cleaning the pilot light area with a small wire brush first, if that dosn't work try a jumper wire on the two terminals of the flame switch, if that works then replace the flame switch.
This operation can be done without removing the oven from the wall mount, just remove the two screws from the panel at the inside rear of the broiler, you will find the flame switch behind the panel it has two screws two wires a thermo leed and a sensor tip that goes up to the thermo sensor mounting bracket above the pilot light, the thermo sensor mounting bracket has one screw and a nut behind it, you will also need to remove one end of the 1/4" pilot gas pipe in order to remove the thermo sensor mounting bracket, When your done puting it back togather, check for gas leaks using soapy water in a spray bottle, a dish soap solution works great, also check your vent pipe connections.
After I cleaned the dust and grease out of this old thing, the 45 year old clock and timer started working again.
My Mom is very happy, try and find new oven to fit the cutout and vent, we saved a lot of $$$,
"Good Luck".

I need to replace the "Glow bar" in my 35 year old tappan gas wall oven. Is this something I can do without taking the oven out of the wall?


Hi, As long as the wires connecting the ignitor are long nough, you can do this while the oven is in the wall. They usually come out far enough. Make sure the oven is unplugged or the breaker is turned off. It is fairly simple to change.
Please let me know if this helps you or if I can assist you further.

How do you get a Jenn air oven out of the wall???


The JennAir website should have the installation manual for download. Go there, type on your model number, and it should come up.

Sometimes these ovens just get "stuck" in place, and take some easy levering to break free, or to help you find other fasteners.
