Question about Tappan TGF657 Gas Kitchen Range

1 Answer

Oven shuts off

Hi,
Is there a recall on this Tappan range? I am exasperated; we 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.

Thanks

    My Tappan 36" gas range, model TGF657BFW2, does the same thing. Three brain replacements, and no luck. It still shuts down randomly. At first I had a problem with the electronic igniter, which was replaced under warranty. That unit was partially melted. Located on the back of the stove under a shield. I keep wondering if this is shorting something out. The oven will restart for me, and I reset the clock. I would not recommend this brand either!! First time it happened... 20 people were waiting for Thanksgiving turkey :(

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.
