Question about Tappan Microwave Ovens
After you replaced the flex connector you got air in the gas line. You may have to wait up to 30 minutes for the air to purge itself to the point gas is available at the oven gas valve.
You will have to set the oven to come on and wait for the air to purge.
There is a possibility of a coincidence that the gas ignitor has gone bad. You can remove the oven racks and the base cover inside the oven so that you can see the ignitor. Turn the oven on and wait for the ignitor to glow a very bright orange color. If it does not glow at all the ignitor is bad. It can glow weakly and still not allow the gas to flow due to low electrical resistance. This usually is noted by a hotspot appearance in the center of the ignitor.
To recap: turn the oven on. Wait for air to purge. If that does not work,remove the oven base pan and turn the oven on again. Look for a glowing ignitor.
If these resolutions do not work,let me know and we will go to the next phase of repair.
