Question about Tappan TEF242 Electric Kitchen Range

1 Answer

Tappan TEF242BW oven stopped working

Apparently, this particular oven (Tappan TEF242BW) was left on Bake at 400 for nobody seems to know how long... turning it on and off did nothing, unplugging and replugging nothing, breaker was not flipped but reset it anyway still nothing- the range burners seems to work.
The red indicator light doesnt even come on.
am I dealing with a burned out oven?

Have you tried the broil setting yet?
This will tell you if the upper element comes on.
If so, you may have a burned bottom element.

Oven will not work ignitors glows but the burner dose not fire up.


Hello,


The problem beleive it or not is that the bake igniter is weak ,and it is not drawing the proper amprage to open the gas valve.If you have a amp meter access the wires to the bake igniter(usually behind the storage drawer) and check for 3.3-3.6 amps when oven is set to bake by clamping the meter around ONE wire wire of igniter make sure only one wire,either one and not both.
if amp draw less than 3.3-3.6 amps replace bake igniter. I know it seems improbable that if the igniter comes on that it could be the problem.Professional appliance technicians who would charge a average of $250.00 to repair your oven,have found when the igniter comes on yet the oven won't heat that a weak igniter is the cause 100% of the time

I tried to cook a frozen pizza in my Tappan electric range last night (which required it to be preheated to 400 degrees) and it would not preheat at all, even after about a 3 hour wait. I just turned up...


http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=5153992&diagram_id=1251523#d1251523
your looking for part number 67 on that part breakdown
it is the bake element and if you inspect it im sure you will find it cooked or broken
befor you actually order the part take the unit out
unplug it
and inspect your wire connections to both sides of the element

I cannot assist you with your problem, but I do have the same oven and it seems the control panel doesn't work either. However, I am looking for the manual. Would you perhaps be able to help me with that? Sincerely, S. Rozier

TAPPAN gas range model 30-3991-00/03 oven won't work.


the button your holding is the switch that tells the board that the consumer whats to bake.so if holding the switch causes that message to work[or oven to heat] and letting go of that button ,then no work .its that button ,but its all part of the board .just that part of its funktion is broken.,if it was lets say your oven ignitor or oven gas safty valve ,the board/oven control[the one with the button]would continue to try after you have selected bake [pushed button]or would give error code.hope that helps you. God bless you , tom
