Oven will not ignite

Tappen Model 32-1272

    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?

    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.

    Oven Problems Replacing the Igniter


    Mar 07, 2011 | Tappan Ovens

    1 Answer

    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.

    Tappen oven lites then goes out after 30-40 seconds

    The problem is the igniter not reaching the correct amp draw .When the igniter does not reach the correct amp draw it may allow the gas valve to partially open or not open at all. The igniters are inexpensive and easy to replace. There is a video at this will walk you thru the correct procedure for performing this test. It may be a different model but the testing will be the same.You can also enter your model # for diagrams and illustrations of your specific model. Not all models are available. All parts come with installation instructions.

    Gas oven(tappen) with broiler draw. oven will not light, no pilot

    if this is fairly new, there is a hot surface ignitor near the back of the burner in the bottom part of the oven. This can go bad. There is a connector that can be pulled apart where the ignitor meets the wiring harness. Ohm out the ignitor or have someone with a meter ohm it out. There should be resistance and not open. If open the ignitor should be replaced. If you have a broiling element, turn that on. If the broil element comes on then the ignitor is almost for sure the problem.

    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.
