Tappan Gas Range Oven Will Not Light

The stove was working fine until it was moved. The only thing done except for moving was a cleaning. The burners work and the pilot in the oven seems to be working also. The stove is about 20 years old.

    The stove is a Model M32-1026 and was built in 1077 so is is 30 years old instead of 20.

    oven knob for tappan stove

  • Anonymous Mar 14, 2014

    This range is at least 40-50 years old. I like this stove but I fear it is becoming dangerous. It has two pilot lights - I am afraid to use half the burners because one of the pilot lights has gone out a couple of times and I didn't notice until the next morning. Now one of the other burners is not lighting all the way around (sometimes) and sputters. It either needs major cleaning out or replacement of parts. The building sent a repairman who threw up his hands and said it was old, so didn't do anything. Is it worth pursuing a repair job on this? Money is an issue as far as buying a good new stove goes and I'm happy with the way this cooks.

I just moved into a condo I am renting and the Tappan gas oven/stove stays hot when it is not even on. The part that is hot is the top between the burners. Is that normal?

Probably the pilot light. You should be able to lift the top of the stove for cleaning ... try lifting it ... to see and verify for yourself this is the case.

This is very typical of a stove fired by a pilot light.

hopefully the gas smell isn't too strong and posing a hazard to you. If it is, reach behind the range and turn the valve until it is across the gas line and not parallel to it. You should be able to raise the top of the range from the front and see all the workings underneath. There you will find the pilot light.

The pilot adjustment screw is located on the back side of the oven temperature thermostat. Lift the cook top to access it. Use a flat screwdriver to adjust... counter clockwise= bigger flame.
