Question about Tappan TGF320 Gas Kitchen Range

1 Answer

Oven temp off

My Tappan range is about 11 years old I think it is a model 285640A, and the oven temp is always low. The temp is about 75 degrees off. The oven temp is lower than what the control says it is. I have adjusted the screws on the back of the oven temp knob until there is no adjustment left.

You either have a plug up in your flame from dirt etc.
or your valve needs to be replaced.
Try turning off the gas and getting to the burner and clean it first.

I have a used Tappan gas range with 4 burners and a griddle in between the burners. everything works, but the oven temp varies about 40 degrees above and below the setpoint. it never seems to level out...


not normal
problem thermostat not lighting the gas or turning the gas off to maintain an even temp
temp variation should be around a 10 degree range
call a gas fitter to check out the oven controls , thermostat or thermocouple

Oven won't heat up at all.


broiler on top of oven?? if so it might have a second ignitor that is working. Most units now with gas have an electric ignitor to start gas ovens. What they do is send electric current through an electric "wire", when enough current is flowing through wire to open gas valve the wire is hot enough to ignite the gas flowing over it. When you turn on the oven look at the burner and after 1 imute or so you should be able to see an Orange glow in bottom of oven if not I'm sure its the ignitor, if glows then probably oven valve is bad. I'd guess ignitor because most oven makers use this ignitor to mantain a warming temp (around 100 degree's) so since your display doesnt register over inital "start" temp of 75, i'd bet ingitor not coming on at all

Oven won't reach proper temperature and hold


If the element glows its ok , if you have replaced the sensor with a new one it can only be the control board. in some cases you can adjust the temp. through the control , it should list directions to do so in the manual. Good luck

Tappan Oven overheats!!



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.
