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.

Tappan microwave vent motor and cooktop lights not working


see this test . God bless youThis microwave oven repair is only for over the range(OTR) models. First, with microwave still installed, gain access to the control board and check for voltage from the fan relay. If you are not getting voltage from the fan relay on the control board, and your display says fan is on, then you need a new control board.
Again, this microwave oven repair is for OTR models. If you know your light bulbs are good and your display is telling you that they should be on, check the light relay on your control board. If no voltage is found at that relay, then replace the control board. Otherwise your problem is in the light socket, wiring, or wire connectors. You can get to all of that by unscrewing 6-8 screws under the unit and taking the bottom panel off.If voltage is present and the wiring that you can see looks good, then you will have to take the unit down and test for voltage at the fan itself. If the voltage is present there, then test the motor itself and/or start capacitor for the motor. The fan motor assembly will slide out of the top of the unit after you take it down and unscrew 2 screws. Below, in the list of component testing, you will see how to test the motor and start capacitor. get the part from

Tappan Convectionaire stove with built in microwave. Purchased in 1985. This is the 4th time the handle on the microwave door has broken off. We were able to replace it in the past, but I cannot find it...


we have the same tappan oven/microwave combination. We are looking for the knobs for this. Its a great oven, but we need these parts. Our microwave handle broke a long time ago and we had one made from wood. If you are going to ditch the old oven would you be willing to sell the knobs?
