Question about Tappan TGF657 Gas Kitchen Range

Open Question

Clock and temperature lights are very dim

I have a Tappan TGF657 36" gas range. It works great, except I have difficulty seeing the aqua colored numbers of the clock and the orange colored numbers for the temperature. Is there a way to fix this problem?

astrosandiWelcome to fixya.
I'm Huuum and happy to assist you,

you asked , Is there a recall on this Tappan range? You are exasperated; you have replaced the electronic control three times in the last six years and the clock still blinks off and on occasionally and the oven shuts itself off. Totally frustrated and would never buy this oven again.

What is the model number?
How old is the range?

Don't put good money into bad!
You need to shop quality and not price!


Here is an interesting report I just read!

Repair or replace?

When to pull the plug on your old range



Typically, you'll also find a troubleshooting section for more-serious problems
in the owner's manual.

Should you pay for a repair or buy a new model?
The answer depends mostly on the age of your range,
how much you bought it for,and the cost of the repair.

Follow these guidelines:

When a repair makes sense.

If your range is under warranty or less than four years old ,
paying for a repair makes sense.
Note that ranges under warranty might require service from a factory-authorized technician;
readers have found them on a par with independent repairers.

When a repair might be a wise choice.

If your ranger is out of warranty and is four to seven years old,
it might make sense to pay for a repair. Customers generally pay $100 to $200 for a repair.
But you might want to buy a new model even at this stage,
given that today's models have added features.
Higher energy efficiency is another plus: Energy Star-qualified models made after April 28, 2008,
are 43 percent more efficient than conventional models built before 2001 and 56 percent
more efficient than those built before 1993.

When it pays to replace.

The repair costs more than half the price of a comparable new range.
Data also shows that it doesn't pay to fix a less-expensive range
eight or more years old.

Thanks to better recycling programs, less than 10 percent
of ranges you replace are likely to end up in a landfill.

SOURCE: TAPPAN GAS RANGE, CLOCK CONTINUALLY

I CALLED TAPPAN DIRECTLY. THEY HAD ME TRIP THE BREAKERS WHICH DID NOT HELP. THEN I HAD THE GAS CO COME OUT TO MAKE SURE THERE WASN'T A GAS LEAK. THE CLOCK STOPPED BEEPING ON IT'S OWN AFTER THE SERVICE MAN MOVED THE STOVE OUT TO INSPECT IT. THE NEXT STEP WOULD HAVE BEEN TO HAVE A TAPPAN SERVICE COME OUT, BUT I GUESS I'LL NEVER KNOW WHAT THE REASON WAS. HOPE IT DOESN'T HAPPEN AGAIN,.

Takes about 15 minutes to fix. You will need a philips head screwdriver, pair of scissors and a butter knife. What you're going to do is cut the wire to the beeper. Your clock will still function.

Start by removing the glass faceplate that encloses your clock. By removing the 2 screws on either side of the metal housing, you can remove the faceplate (you'll have to remove the clock's pushbuttons, but that isn't hard, either. I used some spring-loaded pliers to get a good purchase, then pulled straight back. Oh yeah. You need pliers, too. Don't worry, you won't break the buttons; they'll snap out and push back in, later). Use the butter-knife to carefully work the glass out of the metal frame. The actual clock is secured by a couple more screws, which are easily removed, once you've removed the abovementioned faceplate.
[The clock, btw, is made by Fridgidaire (part # AP2125434 ), in case you want to replace it. Costs more than $130(!)]
If you haven't already unplugged the stove, now is a good time. Do not touch the two metal connectors of the two most prominent wires on the back of the clock, when the unit is plugged in! Yes, it's the voice of experience, talking...
You will notice, when you're looking at the back of the clock unit, a small metal disc, enclosed in plastic. If you plug in the stove, and listen, you should hear the beeping coming from this area. There is a medium-sized hole in the middle of the plastic housing, allowing access to the metal disc. There are two very small wires, red and black, leading into the housing and attached to the disc in two places. One wire is attached to essentially the center part of the disc. The other wire (in my case, the black wire) is attached rather toward the outer edge of the metal disc. The outer edge is even a slightly different color, so you can identify the two parts. In my case, the sound was emitting from the outer edge, as opposed to the center portion of the disc. If you press a Q-tip against the center portion of the disc (thru the hole in the plastic housing), and the beeping continues, unchanged, the sound is probably coming from the outer edge. You can check by bending the Q-tip, and working the tip over to the edge of the metal disc--by applying pressure, you should hear the sound change, slightly.
Unplug the unit, and cut the wire that corresponds to the part of the disc the sound is coming from--that should solve the problem!

Hi rich750,

The F1 error code description is an electronic oven control failure. The easiest way to fix this error is to replace electronic oven control (also called EOC or clock).

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Tappan Millennia range's baking component doesn't work.


Your ignitor has gone out or is no longer drawing enough current to open the gas valve. Replace the oven ignitor and it will fix your problem.
