oven will not heat up over 350 deg

Tappan Ovens | Answered on May 22, 2010

I cannot assist you with your problem, but I do have the same oven and it seems the control panel doesn't work either. However, I am looking for the manual. Would you perhaps be able to help me with that? Sincerely, S. Rozier

The problem is usually the ignitor not reaching the correct amp draw .When the ignitor does not reach the correct amp draw it may allow the gas valve to partially open or not open at all. The ignitor is inexpensive and easy to replace. There is a video at www.appliancehelponline.com/servicemanual.html this will walk you thru the correct procedure for performing this test. It may be a different model but the testing will be the same.You can also enter your model # for diagrams and illustrations of your specific model. Not all models are available.

most of the time this means that the ignitor is weak.if the broil and the upper burners are ok I would think to change it.

If you need further help, I’m available over the phone at https://www.6ya.com/expert/dude_653d05454b389bba

yes the igniter is not calling for enough amps to open the control valve, the igniter needs to be repalced.

The ignitor is weak and must be replaced. When you get the new ignitor turn off the gas supply and the power to replace the ignitor.
Remove the oven racks,remove the oven base pan,remove the flame spreader to access the ignitor.

There should be a gas shutoff **** inside a adjacent cabinet or on the gas line behind the stove.

Thanks for using FixYa. When an oven won't bake, it's because the bake element is burned out. The bake element is the black, pencil- thick tube at the bottom of the oven. This element glows red, when the oven heats. This element has an expected life-span of several years. It may last for only one; it may last for many more. When the element burns out, you need to replace it.

Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.

MaryAnn, If you try to push the locking lever/handle towards the "lock" position first, then pull it back towards the open position, it should unlock for you.

However if that doesn't work, you can turn off the breaker for the electric range, in most electric panels, it is marked as "Range" or "Stove" but is typically a double pole 50 Amp Breaker (It takes up 2 spaces). If you look at the handles of the breakers, you should be able to see the numbers "50" on the handle.

Once you turn off the power, you should be able to unlock the oven. Some ranges require that the power be on in order to unlock it, but first try to open it with the power turned off, and it that doesn't work, turn the breaker back on and the door should be able to be unlocked.

Remember that it will take a little bit of effort to get the door to unlock in some cases, so give it a good tug.

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

The fix is not really a DIY unless you want to take the oven covers off. The control board inside has fused and it is not a case of putting in a new fuse, but removing and replacing the main display control board.

The oven may not be affected, due to its controls being drawn from the power end of the board. But it needs investigating to find out what caused the "blow"

Is this oven under any extended warranty? If so make the call and have it looked at, it is quite likely that the faulty board may now start to deteriorate due to the failure and eventually nothing will work. If in fact it is still working properly. Thje temperature sensors are also monitored on this board in some of the later models

Thanks for using FIXYA

Your oven temperature sensor must be replaced.

Your gas valve is defective. Replace the safety valve.(gas valve).

Tappan Ovens | Answered on Sep 02, 2009

Hi Satk78
Since both broiler and bake are affected then the cause is common. The first to consider would be the gas supply - make sure the regulator from the supply is functioning properly

The safety valve is the most likely problem. If a knock on it(safety valve) cause the oven to work better, then, change the safety valve.
