The main burner is the heating element, they can go bad. If the pilot is light, that is a good sign, You can replace the heating element (main burner) or remove it to make sure there is debris inside of it. Do make sure all parts are securely in tact. There should be a diagram on partselect . com that shows you all of the parts.

That pilot that heats the safety element pictured lights off a standing pilot (constantly on) or a small glow coil. If the glow coil does not glow, it will not ignite the pilot flame.
If there is (or should be) a constant burning pilot flame just above the larger actuating flame that heats that element is not burning or will not light, the orifice is clogged. Smaller constant on flame will be located on the pilot assemble as will be the very tiny glow coil, which ever system is used.

Tappan 32-1272-10/07056-8509-4080 gas range/oven pilot light works,main oven burner won't come on


You will need to look and see if the igniter is glowing a bright red. If it is weak, the oven will not light. Here is the igniter if you need to order it.

Also check and make sure your getting 3.2-3.6 volts AC to the valve.

I'm trying to light my tappan oven...can't find the pilot


Your oven doesn't have a pilot,it has a flat surface igniter.If the igniter is bad or not getting the correct voltage,the safety will not allow the gas valve to open.This being said,I will say any repair involving gas is best left to a qualified tech.If its just the igniter its pretty easy to check it with a ohm meter.It should glow bright red when its calling for the oven to ignite.Hope this helps

Our tappan oven won't light. the pilot element lites and glows but no gas to the burner


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.

Oven does not light


If no gas at all is coming from the oven burner, then it sounds like you need a new gas valve. If the pilot lights but the main burner does not then its the thermocouple.

Where is the pilot light for the oven?


Look inside the oven where the burners come into the oven. Right at that point you should find the pilot light. Here is where you light the pilot.If you smell a lot of gas when you open the door, turn off the gas altogether and let it dissipate. Then turn ot on and then you can light it.
