Tappan Oven Won't Heat


S

Steve Thomas

I've got a Tappan range (Model 30-8072-00). The oven has suddenly
stopped working. Top burners light fine. But when I turn the knob to
heat the oven I can observe what I assume to be the igniter glowing
bright red down there, but do not smell or hear any gas coming out.
As I said, the stove-top burners are getting gas and igniting fine,
but no gas down in the oven. What are the most likely causes of this?

Thanks!

The part of the oven switch that opens the gas port to the oven?
It happened on my Kenmore (Roper) range.

Hi,

The glow coil ignitor CAN glow red and not be good, it may be weak and
can no longer open the gas valve....info on this and how to check is
