Question about Tappan TGF320 Gas Kitchen Range

1 Answer

Tappan Oven overheats!!

Our oven does not stay at temperature. If you turn on oven and set the temp at 350 the oven will continue to heat and go way above 350 degrees causing several burnt meals. Any idea on how to repair this? Also one burn on the stove won't ignite. Stove/Oven is 9 years old.....is it worth repairing or should we look at scrapping it?

    I have a Tappan oven/range model no. 30-4942-00/02. when the oven is turned on it heats up to broiling even when the electronic temperature control is set for a lower temperature such as 350 degrees.

If you have electronic controls, you'll need either the temperature probe (about $60.00) or the clock (about $150.00). You can test the temperature probe from behind the machine. It should read about 1080 ohms at room temperature. if the probe is good, replace the clock.

If you have mechanical oven controls, you need a new thermostat. Is the too high temp consistent? (i.e. runs at 375F +/- 25F?) If so, you can usually adjust the thermostat **** to read closer to the actual temperature.

Gas oven doesn't get hot enough


Good Morning Friend,

I understand that your Frigidaire oven will not heat to temperature if you set it to 350 degrees. I see that you have to set it to 450 degrees for it to heat up, and then turn it back down to the desired temperature. Please try resetting your appliance, by either unplugging it or shutting the power off at your home's circuit breaker, for 3-5 minutes. Restore power, set the clock and try setting the temperature to 350 degrees. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your appliances status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Oven temp fluctuates


It is normal for the thermal device to turn on and off. Obtaining a steady temp is not always possible. When setting a temperature on some ovens, they have what is called a tolerance point. That means a set temperature has a range of a few degrees up or down. At the Down point, the oven is triggered to energize the coils and bring the interior of the oven back to the settings desired. The other factor is opening the oven and allowing cool air to enter, or in some cases a leaking door seal allows air to enter and heat to escape.

Hello, My Jenn Air oven overheats. When I set


The temp probe resistance should read between 1050 and 1150 ohms. If not. Replace it.It causes the overheating situation you describe.
