    I have a 36" Tappan range with 5 burners. It's probably 10 years old. Everything works except the oven. It won't heat. Oddly enough, the broiler works as well as the "pre-heat" on the oven. Any suggestions?

    Yes the igniter glows, do not hear or smell any gas - what controls gas flow? Should we smell or hear gas if the igniter is the problem?

Older is BETTER !! Replace the igniter,even if it is glowing
note:there is a 2% chance the safety valve is the problem.And I'll bet you ,you are in the 98% side on this one.EVEN THOUGH YOU SEE IT GLOW -----IF ITS JUST GLOWING---------GLOWING--------GLOWING---------it's gone ! !

I have a 6 yr old Tappan stove, model TGF657BFW5. the burners work fine, but the oven and/or broiler take 5 to 10 minutes to light. when the oven and/or broiler do light, the flame is only about 1/8 to 1/4...

that ignitor should lite the flame within 40 to 60 seconds if not the ignitor is bad.even though it glows red it doesn't mean it's good it works with amps change the ignitor

Oven not receiving any gas but pilot is working

Sounds like you have a weak ignitor (pilot lite) . The ignitor has to turn white hot , not red , orange , but white , to open the gas valve . Replace the electronic ignitor and that should get the oven working .

You have to light burners on stovetop with a match all the time.

The pilots for the range top are beneath the top of the range top. YOu will see them if they are there. YOu stove may use electronic ignition and you can hear the sparking when you turn the knob to the "light" position.

If it is electronic ignition, make sure the stove is plugged into an operating outlet

Tappan TGFS26C, Oven igniter not even

Lets take the oven problem first. Sounds like you have a Hot Surface Ignitor problem. This is the device that glows and lights the burner. You can buy a universal ignitor at most appliance or heating and air conditioning supply houses. Note carefully how the old one is mounted. You may have to make some adjustments to mount the new ignitor, but it MUST be close to the gas burner like the old one! You don't smell gas because the gas valve will not open until the ignitor is hot. All ignitors work with the same voltage, so simply connect the new wires to the old ones.

I'm not certain if you have a standing pilot for the stove top burners or electronic ignition. Remove the top panel to check. If you have a gas pilot, relight it. If electronic ignition, clean the ignitors. If that does not solve the problem you may have to call a technician, as these systems can be complex.

Hope this helps.

Tappan Gas stove

The pilot adjustment screw is located on the back side of the oven temperature thermostat. Lift the cook top to access it. Use a flat screwdriver to adjust... counter clockwise= bigger flame.
