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

Tappan oven "turns on" by "itself" ??? Control


I cannot solve this problem yet. We have the same problem. However in ours if we turn the temperature know to off (the other knob is set to off - time bake, bake, broil, clean, etc - set to off) then it will not run. Somehow that temperature knob with the electrical control is making it turn on. Ours started to do this on the same day!

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

does it have a knob in front or is it a panel to operate bake broil ? if it has a oven knob take it off and look in the back of the knob you adjust it there if it is electric if it is gas you need to use a small screw driver in the stem where the knob goes on and turn a little screw in there to ajust temperture turn clockwize to adjust temp up
