The Range has not been hooked up in several years, but has been stored properly and is in Great shape (almost new). It had limited use before it was stored. When I hooked it up, the range top burners work properly , but the oven will not ignite..... the oven igniter glows red hot , but no gas to burner. There is a separate small manual valve just below the range top that controls gas to the oven, and it is on and working properly. I tested the voltage going to the safety valve and it appears that it is around 6 volts with the oven off and jumps to 120 volts when i turn the oven to 350. Can you tell me if the safety valve needs to be replaced? Is there a troubleshooting manual you can point me to? I do not want to order the wrong parts.

Re: Tappan - Model 36-3052-23
I suspect you may have a bad igniter. They will still glow nice and hot, but if they are weak the gas valve will not open. This is actually a safety feature. Depending on which type you have, the glow bar igniter is supposed to draw a certain current potential before the gas valve will open. Here's the current readings for both types:
Round Glow Bar: 2.7 to 3.2 amps
Square Glow Bar: 3.2 to 3.7 amps
I would try to to determine if the igniter is good or bad before proceeding with a gas valve replacement. Generally, the igniter is a common fail item. Let me know if this helps.

Cost isn't the main factor to get a quality vacuum. There are plenty of vacuums in all price ranges that may work great the first year or two. Some expensive vacuums have problems and require lots of maintenance. Most vacuums in the hundred dollar price range are good for about a year. Bagless vacuums require a lot more maintenance than a bagged vacuum. Filters must be cleaned frequently to insure good airflow, and the filters and belts should be replaced at least once per year on most models. Filter replacement on bagged vacuums is not as critical because the dirt goes into the bag keeping the insides of the vacuum a lot cleaner which makes it last longer. Some vacuums, Hoover Windtunnel for example are available as a bagged or bagless model. The bagged models perform much longer than the bagless models for the average consumer, mainly because most people do not maintain their vacuums properly. There are a few really great vacuums in the two to three hundred dollar range that can work great for 10 years or more with nominal routine maintenance. The best place to find one is at a reputable vacuum store.
I would suggest that you take it to a local sporting goods store or gunsmith (Transport legally) and get some "hands on" knowledge.
Another option would be to try using Google to hook up with a Colt Firearms club or forum.
If this weapon is new to you and you have no firearms experience, for your own safety and that of others, please get some training.
Happy New Year
the owners manual will not give you any repair info. Only use instructions. Your model has an oven safety gas valve that opens only after the secondary pilot heats the end of capillary properly. You may need to clean/replace the pilot assembly OR replace the oven safety valve. If you need the valve, look on ebay because these things are over $275 from Tappan.
Dead or poorly grounded battery. Take your battery to your auto parts store and they will test it (usually free of charge). Also check your battery leads for corrosion in between the strands. It actually creeps up the cable under the insulation and grows like mold eventually rendering them useless. The Range Rover cranking requirements as well as operating draw push the limits of a properly matched battery and bring any battery less than minimum spec to its knees in short order. So have a good strong properly fitted battery such as an Optima or Interstate brand. A new battery and leads will cure your problem im relatively certain.
Good Afternoon Esmond, this is Z. I am happy to assist you!
The serial tag of your range, which lists your model number, may be found in the storage drawer, on the right side or on the front of the oven, in the upper left corner, as you open the door. I hope this information proves useful.
yes you can replace it....you actually get the entire top not just the glass....Tappan is a spin off of Fridgidaire so you would have to get ahold of them to get the top just need to give them your model number....price usually ranges from $200 to $350
