The most common problem is the ignitor is out. I'm unable to pull up the model number posted.

If this is a older tappan, you will have a burning pilot flame. If you take the bottom of the oven floor out, so you can see the pilot assembly, which is the burning pilot flame. When you turn on the oven the flame should jump, and hit the little metal wire that is coming from the gas valve. Sometimes the lines get full of gas residue, and the flame does not jump far enough to hit the end of the sensor. So what you have to do is cheat time. So the end of the sensor, had a small straight screw that holds it in place. losen the screw and take the sensor out. Now turn the oven on and see how far the flame jumps, and bend the sensor to stay in the spot where the flame jumps too. Leave it there for a minute, and see if the oven comes on. You might have to move it a few times to get it in the right spot. Let me know how it goes. Tom ********************************************

Default Oven not lighting

Saw that post above and I can see my Tappan (model: -MPF300PXWG):

1. Oven control definitely gets the pilot light to go higher. Stay higher as long as oven control is not OFF. Pilot light much stronger.

2. No ignition of gas takes place to the oven. I have taken out the oven bottom and seen how high the pilot gets, and it definitely gets to the gas pipe running front to back.

3. So I'm guessing there's no gas flowing in that pipe else it definitely would ignite. [Note: I've removed the spreader and oven base and cleaned them of debris, soot, etc].

4. Takes me back to the oven control behind the oven knob under the stove top panel. It has 3 lines out of it (1 is thermostat into the oven, 1 is control for the pilot light to go higher, 3rd I'm not sure but guess it's gas control related?)

So I'm stuck with 4 working burners, and no oven. Not sure what to replace.
