Question about Tappan Ovens

2 Answers

Hi -- I have a Model 30 series self cleaning gas range. It has been smoking when I try to use the oven. The oven doesn't look dirty at all. And when I try to operate the cleaning cycle, about 45 minutes later it starts to smoke real bad. It looks like the smoke is coming up from the burners, and it has a "chemical" smell that actually burns my eyes. I never got this "chemical" smell when I cleaned the over before. The smoke is so bad, I have to stop the cleaning cycle. Is there any hope? Thanks for any assistance you can give me.

    Hi -- thank you so much for giving me some direction on this. I live in Norristown, PA, and don't know who to call that won't charge me an arm and a leg -- would you happen to have any advice on who to call? Thank you so much for your help.

The burner is blocked or burners cracked.It has to be checked,.Check the burner holes ,clean the holes with paper clip. Also see the spark igniter.Is it getting short,in that case it has to be replaced.Do not use till this problem gets checked and confirmed.------------

    A local appliances repair store engineer is advisable.But if in your area if there is no one near by then ,if there is any store dealing with new kitchen range appliance.Then that store can guide you to the local repair tech.As all the appliance store have their personal repair tech and have information of other near by repair techs dealing in kitchen range repairing.
    Thanks for keeping updated with your query.

This is very bad indeed. You can replace the burners themselves, which must have had something spilled on them unbeknown-st to you. I can find the part for you, but there should be a more elaborate model number. It is a Tappan Oven correct, check for the model number on the back of the oven... that is if you want me to point you to the part.

Thanks
Tim
