Question and Answers


I have a Tappan Stove Model #MGF334BGDD, The oven isn't kicking on but the heating element is. Is this the ignitor or is at a regulator or something else.


Thank you for your question.

I can understand you seeing the glow of the igniter and wondering why the burner is not lighting.

  • A very high percentage of time the igniter even though it is glowing will be the problem.

With out going into a detailed explanation of how the igniter and safety gas valve work together, the simplest thing to do is replace the igniter. It is the cheapest and quickest way to solve this problem.

It could be the safety valve but since the igniter is glowing it is probably ok.

The part number for the igniter is 5303935066 and you can order it from Sears Parts Direct .

First REMOVE POWER from the range.

  • To replace this igniter open the oven door and locate the two thumb screws at the back of the oven floor and loosen. (On some models the do not come out)

  • Remove the oven bottom by lifting with the slots up and to the back of the oven bottom panel to remove from the front lip tucked under the front frame.

  • Then remove the nut that holds the flame spreader.

  • Remove the flame spreader plate, which will give you access to the igniter mounts on the burner tube.

  • Remove the mounting screws and unplug the wire harness for the igniter.

  • NOTE! These igniters are easily damaged so handle with care. Any drop or rough handling can break the igniter heater, so be very careful.

  • Install the new igniter and re-connect the wire harness and install the flame spreader and the oven bottom.

  • Re-connect power and test operation.

I hope these instructions will help you with the repair of your range.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .
