Question and Answers

Q:

Upper and lower elements in Tappan TEF326FSA have gone out but the range still works. What could cause this?

A:

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

Based on the model number and symptom if both (broil/bake) oven elements quit heating at the same time; the oven control board has most likely failed.

The control board usually fails if one of the two oven elements happens to burn out and shorts to ground or the control board can fail for no reason or causes.

The oven control is part #316455400 which can be ordered from Sears PartsDirect

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 .

Q:

bake and broil both quit working

A:

Thank you for your question.

I can understand your question about both elements failing at the same time. The odds of both elements failing at the same time are slim. What they have in common is the electronic control on this model.

  • In looking at the wiring diagram it looks like it is the control that has failed.

  • I recommend removing power to the range for one minute and restoring power to see if in resetting the microprocessor on the clock will help.

  • If you REMOVE POWER from the range we can remove the top and bottom back cover and do a visual inspection of the wires for the elements.

  • The bake and broil have a common orange connector on the one side of the line.

  • Next if you have a volt/ohm meter we can do a continuity check on the bake and broil elements.

  • Remove one of the wires on the elements and check across the element terminals. Set the meter to the RX1 setting for ohm reading. If the meter shows a continuity reading the elements are ok.

  • Since we already have the back panel off the range the oven control is not that hard to change.

  • If you order a new control there is only four screws to remove and a few wire connectors to change to replace the control.

If you want to order the control the part number is:316455400 and you can order this from Sears Parts Direct .

I hope this information will help with your Tappan range.

Thank you for using Manage My Life.
