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.

I have a dual fuel Dacor ERD30 range that will not stay hot. Lately, it will heat up to the desired temperature and beep to indicate it is ready, but then will not hold the temperature. And strangely, if...


Sounds similar to what mine is doing.
Since Dacor uses the gas broiler to preheat the oven, the problem is that the lower heating element isn't getting power.
I took out the element and verified that the element is still good, but no AC voltage coming from the relay board to the element.
Try setting on the Pure Convection mode - it will probably heat up and hold the temp fairly well - that still doesn't do any good if you need to bake something covered (convection modes are useless for covered container..

The oven doesn't work ,the ignator doesn't light up. no gas coming


The technical jargon is,.....:
In order for your gas oven to work this is what has to happen: 1. when you turn on the oven, the range sends 120 volts to the glow bar igniter. 2. as the igniter heats up (and starts to glow) it starts using more electricity. 3. when the electric use reaches a set amount (say 3.2 amps) the range knows the glow bar igniter is hot enough to ignite the gas, so it then releases gas through the gas safety valve. 4. when the thermostat tells the oven controller that the temperature has been reached, the control cuts power to the igniter, cutting the amp draw down, causing the safety gas valve to close. 5. process repeats to hold oven temp until you turn off oven.

So,..........the solution is:
most likely your oven igniter burnt out. Find your model number, usually on the range frame just behind the lower drawer or broiler drawer (depending on if it is a self clean gas range or not) and order the correct igniter and replace it.

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.
