Top 20 Tappan 30IN ELEC IGNa Oven Questions & Answers

Should be able to remove a cover on back, disconnect 2 wires, possible a screw mount inside oven, remove probe and replace in reverse. Are you sure probe is bad ? After you get it out, put an ohm meter across contact points and run hot, then cold water over probe. The resistance (ohm readings ) should change.

I do not know what the error code f11 means on your appliance but I do know that if you cannot find it in your manual you will obtain the information you require from the manufacturer or a reputable dealer or service engineer. If this error code relates to an open door and you are satisfied the door is properly closed then the switch that closes the circuit that permits your oven to operate is not operating. This may be due to the oven door seal stiffness being just enough to keep the switch contacts apart or it may be due to dirt or grease preventing a clean electrical contact being made.

Assuming there is power to your appliance and the oven control is operating correctly, likely causes are a failure of the thermostat or heating element, both of these are easily checkable with a circuit tester or multimeter, and both are easily replaced. If there is some age to the appliance you may also want to inspect the wiring connections. Cooking appliances are very simple animals, they mostly fail through poor hygiene, poor maintenance, or corrosion caused by the products of combustion.

Steam is a natural product of baking but the heat from an oven rising directly to the control knobs on any cooker is unacceptable. Those knobs are not decorative mouldings to make the appliance look pretty, they are a means of controlling the gas valves! I suggest you check that your appliance is standing square upright and level. If it is then I think perhaps you might replace the oven door seal.

Probably thermocouple needs to be replaced. pay attention to hygiene, KEEP YOUR COOKING APPLIANCE CLEAN and it will serve you reliably for a very long time. Keep it CLEAN and SERVICED and it will serve you for life.

Hello janicejoh679, there is no manual for YOU to clean the oven, it's a self cleaning oven. Okay, please pardon my loose sense of humor.
A friend of mine was able to get a free replacement instruction manual from Tappan off of their website several weeks ago, I think she typed, " tappan", in the google search bar to find their official website.
I hope the info helps you,
Good luck!

You don't have to have a hood over a stove. If you do though it removes all steam and odours. The grill also catches all the cooking fats. Your kitchen will stay a lot cleaner if you have one.
