Question about Tappan TGF320 Gas Kitchen Range

Kenmore range oven will not hold temperature

I have a Kenmore gas range that won't hold temperature. When I turn it on, it comes up to set temp, but if the oven is used for more 10 minutes to bake a batch of cookies then it loses temp. Even pizza takes nearly 45 minutes to cook! I have temporarily remedied this by babysitting the oven and turning it off every 10-15 minutes to reset it. When it is on for a longer period of time you can hear the gas come on. The gas sounds like some rhythmic pulsating sh-sh-shh, sh-sh-shh. Could this be a temperature sensor? It seemed to have started after one of the first times I used the self-cleaning feature.

    I have the same problem with my kenmore range, it took over an hour to bake a pizza and 3 hours to do a chicken pot pie. I have turned my oven up to 450 then back down again and ruined countless batches of cookies because of theis problem. A simple cake takes over an hour and a half to bake.

You're glow bar ignitor is on its way out. I had this exact problem and swapped mine out with its identical sibling that runs the broiler element. Problem fixed.

Oven temp fluctuates


It is normal for the thermal device to turn on and off. Obtaining a steady temp is not always possible. When setting a temperature on some ovens, they have what is called a tolerance point. That means a set temperature has a range of a few degrees up or down. At the Down point, the oven is triggered to energize the coils and bring the interior of the oven back to the settings desired. The other factor is opening the oven and allowing cool air to enter, or in some cases a leaking door seal allows air to enter and heat to escape.

The ignitor is probably weak and not relighting when it needs to. Replace the ignitor.

OVEN WILL NOT COME UP TO TEMPERATURE


Hello,

You can calibrate the oven on this model. Press the bake button, adjust the bake temperature up to 550 degrees and then press and hold the bake button until a 0 displays. Now you can adjust the oven temperature up or down to match the display.

Here is a repair manual link that you can use to download frigidaire repair manuals. The one for 30 inch freestanding ranges will have the section on calibrating the oven's electronic control.

Thanks

Oven beeping f1 and f3


Here are the error codes for your range:

F1 Circuit board defective Replace control board F2 1. The oven temp has risen above 665F and the door is not locked or
2. The temp has risen above 965F with the door locked 1. Check oven temp in mode that failure occurred. Replace EOC (Electronic Oven Control) if above limits
2. Check 8-pin connector. Check and replace oven temperature sensor if necessary F3 Oven temperature sensor is open (above 3000 ohms) Check resistance of oven temperature sensor, check for open wiring between oven temperature sensor and control F4 Oven temperature sensor is shorted (below 500 ohms) Check resistance of oven temperature sensor, check for shorted wiring between oven temperature sensor and control F5 Internal watchdog circuit has detected a failure Defective EOC (Electronic Oven Control) F6 Shorted buttons Check push buttons and dome switches on control F8 Logic interrupted (lock motor switch sequence) Check door lock switches and wiring

Most likely problem is the oven temp. sensor. Should check around 1100 ohms at room temp. I would replace that first because it is the easiest and cheaper than an oven control.
