Seal on Tappan wall oven came off, what to do?

Hey friend, I appreciate your post!
I understand that seal on your Tappan wall oven has come off. In order to provide you additional information regarding the seal I would need your model number and serial number. You can locate the serial tag (which has your model number listed) on the front of the oven on the left side. With that information I could provide you additional assistance. I look forward to your response. -Matt

How do light an old Tappan gas range?

If it has a pilot light: themobilian_411.jpga little gas comes out all the time on these. Just use a lighter. Warning for propane model have plenty of ventilation before attempting to light it. Propane is twice as heavy as air and nat gas is lighter than air. propane puddles and lingers while nat gas dissipates. If yours has a glow bar no need to light it:

Our oven does not heat-the broiler and the range do work but the oven doesn't get hot. Is this a pilot problem-and if so how do we re-light it?

is it gas or electric?if it's gas and the broil works but the bake doesn't you need to change out the ignitor,ovens are electronic ignition now and you don't relight them unless you know there is a pilot,next time send brand name and model number,if there's a storage draw under the oven door,open the draw and look at the frame to the left or to the right of draw opening and you'll see a tag with the model number,most likely all you need is an ignitor,pull out the racks and remove the bottom panel and you'll see the ignitor next to the burner tube,when you put the oven on bake the ignitor should glow red and ignite the flame in less than a minute most times less than 40 seconds,if it doesn't you need to change the ignitor.when you go to remove the screws that hold the ignitor on wet the threds with a wet paper towel and the screws will come out easier than if they were dry

Relighting Your Furnace's Pilot Light

furnace1.jpg - Turn off the gas at the main valve at your utility box - Wait five to ten minutes for gas fumes to waft away - Get a long match—yes, a fireplace match, not a standard match - Set the gas valve on your furnace to "pilot" - Press the red button as you hold the match to the pilot valve - Keep pressing the red button for 30-60 seconds so the pilot can heat the thermocouple. Release the button and see if the pilot remains lit - If pilot goes out, wait five to ten minutes and repeat the process - Once the pilot stays lit, turn the main gas valve back on - If the pilot light continues to go out, call a technician, who may need to adjust or replace your thermocouple or adjust your pilot
