Self cleaning oven

I bought a used Tappan stove and when I plugged it in to see if it works, I turn the oven on, the oven self cleaning light keeps comming on, decided to put it through a self cleaning, hoping that would take care of it, but no...

Unplug the power cord for few minutes. then plug it back to see if the light still keep coming.
then do this:
Check if you have it in the lock mode.
Press bake and broil pads together for 2 to 3 seconds until SF shows in the display.
Press the self clean pad, display will show loc off or loc on.
Let me know if it clear the fault.
Good luck from : Prince P

Tappan oven won't turn on after cleaning


I don't precisely understand...responding. I assume that if you say oven on that the oven isn't heating but the indicator controls are working. This has several possibilities. First, do turn your circuit breakers off then on...there are two linked together. This may reset something. If that fails, your problems are likely in either the high limit safety switch or the heating elements. The elements are more likely. To check them, turn off the power and remove them from the oven. This is usually by taking out one screw and unclipping the element. See if the element is bulged or damaged. If not, use a multitester to see if one of them is not conducting. Replace it. High limit should conduct fully. Use the curcuit diagram on the stove to determine its location.
