I have an oven that was in the place when i bought it. i do not know how old the oven is but i can tell it has not been used much if any at all. still looks brand new. the oven will not work. press the oven button and the preheat light will come on but no gas goes out into the oven to light. the broil works and all top burners work just not theoven. the igniter does not glow at all and there is no gas odor when trying to use the oven. i have checked all wires and they all look good and are connected securly but thats the extent of my knowledge on ovens. there is a pin on the gas connection and it is in the correct position.

SOURCE: oven wont light

Rick0192, Most likely, the bake igniter is shorted out and it has to be replaced. The part number for the igniter is 5303935066 .You can buy it for $60.00 to $80.00. If you are handy and have the right tools (Philips #1 and straight 1/4" screwdrivers, 1/4" and 5/16" nut drivers or socket wrenches, wire cutter and wire stripper) you probably can do it yourself. I would recommend to call a local appliance tech. just because of the safety issue. If you are going to do it yourself, let me know and I can help you with step by step instructions. Gendos

SOURCE: Tappan gas kitchen oven will not heat

Almost always a weak oven igniter. Remove oven floor by removing 2 screws at rear of floor. Remove flame spreader from burner, if it has one. Turn on oven and see if igniter gets red. It's the caged thing on burner tube. If it does but doesn't light gas, replace igniter. UNPLUG UNIT FIRST!!
Put dishwashing soap on threads of 2 screws holding igniter in place. This will allow it to come out easier. Do-not use oil. It will make your oven smell like a diesel truck.
Remove screws. You will have to remove drawer in front. Underneath you can fin wires from igniter. These will be cut at igniter and connected to igniter with enclosed wire nuts. The 2 wires to igniter go either way.

SOURCE: Tappan Millennia range's baking component doesn't work.

Your ignitor has gone out or is no longer drawing enough current to open the gas valve. Replace the oven ignitor and it will fix your problem.

SOURCE: our tappan oven won't light. the pilot element

Either the safety valve is stuck or the ignitor is weak. While the ignitor is glowing. use the handle of a large screwdriver to tap on the valve body. If it lights replace the ignitor. If it does not light replace both the ignitor and the safety valve.

SOURCE: Oven will not heat

This can be caused by a weak/inop hot surface igniter or a defective gas control valve. First you will need to verify that the hot surface igniter is coming on(you should see it glow in the burner compartment). If it is not glowing then you will need to verify that the wiring harness has voltage to it when the oven thermostat is on. Also check the igniter for any cracks or damage and if found then replace the igniter. If it is glowing then one thing that you can try(be very careful doing this) is to give the gas control valve a light tap with something hard like a wrench when the oven is turned on,igniter is glowing but the burner is not on. You will need to remove the broiler/storage drawer at the bottom of the oven. Once you pull the drawer out you should see the gas control valve at the back of the range. Try turning on the oven and lightly tapping the valve housing after the igniter is fully on. This may loosen up any debris inside the control valve housing that might be causing the problem. If the oven burner comes on then try completely turning the oven on and back of several times. And when I say completely I mean turn it on after the igniter is not glowing and burner has shut off. This works about 30% of the time. If the burner control valve sticks again after trying this procedure then it could be the control valve and/or the hot surface igniter defective. The hot surface igniter would need to be disconnected from it's harness and tested with an OHM meter. Most igniters should have a 500 to 700 OHM reading. If you get a reading that is way off then the igniter is defective and replace it. If the igniter tests good then the gas control valve is suspect and replace it. Most appliance parts retailers will test your igniter for free. When the igniter is on it should glow very brightly. If it is dim then that is a sure sign it is bad.

I just bought a about 35year old house it has a chef contessa deluxe gas freestanding oven and warmer i don't know the model no can you help i need a manual and parts

Hello Helen, most model number labels can be found either under the cook-top surface burners; on the side of the oven unit; or in the back near the vent. Other places to consider, behind the oven door jamb along the top or side edges. If your particular stove unit has a kick plate, you may find the oven's schematic attached to the inside of the kick plate with may contain the technical data to your unit. Hope this helps.

Old hot point oven clock is noisy. Can this be fixed. I haven't seen the oven so I don't have any details, sorry. It has chrome on it so I know it's old.

Those clocks are no longer made. To repair we had to remove and send to a rebuilding facility. I d not know if these places are still available but I would leave well enough alone until it dies completely.

Old Kenmore oven does not work anymore. Broiler and top burners work fine. What could be the problem?

Just a guess. There may be a temp sensor in the oven that tells the element to turn off when it is hot enough. If this is gone the element will not heat. It is 4 or 5 inches long and sticks through from the back of the stove. Try turnig on the element and then tap this thing with a wooden spoon. If it begins working you know what needs to be placed.

Melted Tin Foil in bottom of oven

Unfortunately, it's too late. The tin foil has melted into the panel and can't be removed. You should never place anything on the bottom of a stove that has a hidden element. You WILL damage the panel. The only option you have is to replace the panel or the entire oven liner...

Instead of trying to place the bracket to the door from a lowered position at floor level, I positioned the brackets and from a standing position, placed the bracket into the slot, pushed in a downward position and the door went into place.
