Question about Tappan TGF320 Gas Kitchen Range

Oven does not heat

When I turn the oven on it does not heat. back a couple of months ago if I open the oven door rapidly and slam it a few times it would click on and start heating. Now nothing happens. I can see the pilot is lit and it warms up to about 70-80 degrees if I had to guess (probably from the pilot.) Any ideas for trouble shooting? The last time i did the door slamming trick I smelled a faint odor of gas but still nothing happend. Any ideas???

    I have the exactly the same problem. When I turn the oven on, there is no smell of gas, no sound of gas hissing, nothing. Just the heating element coming on and that's all. I know it is not a problem with the gas line, because the top burners will turn on just fine.

    I wish I knew a fix for this, because tonight we were going to have a steak dinner with baked beans. Now we have no way of making those beans. :(

Noisy fan and no heat

Kitchen aid is made by Whirlpool. There is a very good chance the then thermal fuse on the back of the oven has tripped. Whirlpools are very prone to this fuse tripping after a clean cycle. The noisy fan is just that a noisy fan it will probably need replacing. I have replace a couple of them over the years. When you pull the oven out to replace the thermal fuse replace the fan motor at the same tiome.

We have had this microwave for 7 years. Not had any problems until about six months ago when the volume went way down when you push the buttons and timer, but still heated. Then all of a suddon it does...

Remove the cabinet ... check the door safety interlock switches for proper operation. Most of the time, no heat problems can be traced to the oven thinking the door is open. These switches tell the oven if it is open or closed. If they are faulty ... well ... the oven thinks the door is open and will not turn on the heat.

Make sense?

Thanks for your question today.

I have an 1100 watt Aurora. It has power the display lights up but it doesn't heat up. It was purchased from Home Depot about 5 months ago

Five months ago ... it may still be in warranty. If so .. take it back ... dont open it up ... you will jeopardze your warranty standing.

Do you ever open the door while the machine is running? If you do ... the door satery interlock switches may have failed. If there is no warranty issue, you may want to remove the cabinet and check these little switches.

What happens is this ... when you close the door, the switches report to the oven that the door is closed and it is OK to turn on the heat. If the switches are burned, the contacts don't close and the oven thinks the door is open and will not turn on the heat.

It wont heat anymore and the tray stopped turning a few months ago

Im sorry to hear you are having this trouble.

I believe you have a faulty door safety interlock switch. Please remove the cover and check the small micro switches with your ohm meter.

What frequently happens is this: because of opening the door during oven operation, the small points inside the switches arc and burn. Once they cannot make contact, they are not able to tell the oven the door is closed and when the door is not closed (forget what YOU think the door is doing) the oven will not turn on the magnatron. No magnatron, no heat.

Please let me know what happens

I have a gas oven whirlpool sf3020ekq2 buners work but oven won't

Sounding like your hot surface ignitor is getting bad. What I would like for you to do is open the oven and take the bottom panel off. This is so you can see the hot surface ignitor. Turn the oven on and look at the hot surface ignitor it is down on the bottom right next to the burner assembly. Does it start to glow and turn cherry red? This ignitor isn't too hard to replace couple of small screws and two wires. Will have to cut the wires so disconnect the unit from the 120 volt plug. Now if it starts to glow and get cherry red hot then the gas valve is sticking and it is the one going bad. That is a little tougher to replace. Turn the gas off at the source and get your wrenches unscrew the gas valve small space so if you want remove the door by just pulling it off the hinges.

If unit is old and you don't like it anyway maybe santa would be good to you and replace the stove oven. The gas valve is about 60 bucks or so and hot surface is about 20 bucks. let me know how it turns out.. ken

GE JKP45 double wall oven shuts off

This sounds like a loose connection (solder joint) on the main control board. I had one that had a similar problem. checked the price of a control board $350. I took the control panel off, took the board apart and found a loose connection on one of the relays. resoldered the bad connection. oven works fine now.
