    Default tappan gas oven not igniting

    We recently bought a new home and a tappan gas range/oven was included. We used the stove portion a couple times and it works fine. however, the oven wont ignite. When i look in i see the ignitor is red but no gas seems to be coming in. I tried lighting it with a match and nothing happend. It ran for about 3 minutes with no smell of gas coming through. I checked the gas line and it is active and sending gas at the split to the burners. If anyone has any ideas or suggestions that would be great.

    Thanks

    You will need a new oven igniter.

    Whats the model# of your range?

    Yes, trust me, I have changed hundreds of these igniter's with the exact same problem as your having now.

    Here is a new igniter for your model you can order:
