Oven will not ignite

Tappen Model 32-1272

  • dflee48 May 23, 2008

    This model is 32-1272-10. This is a gas range.

    I have replaced the igniter but there still is no fire.

  • dflee48 May 23, 2008

    I have replaced the igniter and there is no glow at all. A new Tstat is $100, is there a way to test the old one? Also, what are the chances it's the switch & how do I test to see?

Is this an electric range or gas range?

  • Priya darshan May 23, 2008

    if the
    igniter is weak, if it glows red but doesn't get hot enough, or if it's
    burned out, the gas doesn't flow to the burner and the burner won't
    ignite. If this is the problem, you may need to replace either the
    igniter or the gas safety valve. Usually the igniter is to blame.

    Other reasons that your oven may not bake are:

  • The clock settings are incorrect (if you have timed baking or a self-cleaning oven).

  • The thermostat is defective.

  • The safety valve that prevents accidental gas flow is defective.

  • The selector switch is defective.

    What needs fixed in my built in Tappen oven, model 12-1263-30, when it is 90 degrees off?

    Hello Wendy;

    My name is Peter. I am a retired field service appliance technician.

    The normal operation of a oven is the oven will rise 20-40 degrees above the set temperature and turn off. Then, when the oven temperature drops 20-40 degrees below the set temperature it will turn back on and cycle again. This is true except for the new accurate ovens.

    Since you are getting heat your oven heating element is good.

    You have a older oven.

    Your problem is either the oven thermostat which cost over $200.00.

    25691587-pfxp0re3pkk4llvjptchxxrl-3-0.jpg Or, your oven control, which base on your oven age is no longer available.

    Now, here are your choices:

    1.) Take a chance and purchase the oven thermostat and install it. If this does not solve the problem you can return it less shipping and restocking charges.

    2.) My professional recommendation is to put the old girl to rest.
    You can:
    a.) Go to a Sears Outlet (Scratch and Dent) Store, save a couple of hundred dollars on a new oven and still get a one year warrantee .
    b.) Go to a used appliance store.
    c.) Go to Habitat Stores - used appliance stores.
    d.) Go to Second Chances Stores - Appliances removed from homes that were torn down.

    Best of luck,

    I have a tappen model 32-2642-23/02 gas stove the oven igniter has been taking a whiloe to light as in minutes. now it seems not to want to light. the igniter glows and I smell the gas but not lighting.

    Igniters grow weak with age and occasionally need to be replaced. Just because an igniter glows, does not mean it is good. If you are experiencing longer ignition times, or no ignition, this is most likely the case. The following link explains a little theory about these igniters and how to replace one:

    Replacement parts (if required) can be purchased at any of the following websites:

    Prices vary between these sites, so shop and compare. The first three sites listed also offer helpful exploded view diagrams to help you locate and properly identify the parts you need.

    A replacement igniter part number for the model you have listed is 5303935066 and costs about $20-$25.

    If you have any questions please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.

    Constant Gas odor

    Constant gas odors is nothing to let go. You should have a technician check it out right away and turn the gas off to the unit.
