Your Tappan wall oven is one of the more versatile appliances in your kitchen, always ready to help you bake chocolate chip cookies or brown the mac and cheese. On those rare occasions when it stops baking properly, some quick troubleshooting can help you find the problem and get your oven working quickly again.
A wall oven's thermostat is the part that controls the temperature of the oven. If the oven doesn't turn on correctly, fails to turn off when it should or doesn't maintain the proper temperature, there's a good chance the thermostat needs to be replaced. Check this by using an appropriate thermometer.
Working alongside the thermostat, the temperature sensor probe of a wall oven detects the oven's actual temperature. If the oven doesn't maintain the temperature you've set, a wall oven repair usually involves replacing a broken temperature sensor probe. Check the oven control panel for an error code, since the temperature sensor probe is one of the wall oven parts that usually shows up on the panel's display.
In an electric wall oven, the bake and broiler elements are the tubes that glow hot at the top and the bottom of the oven. If you can't sense heat emanating from these elements or if you can see that they're broken, replace them to get your oven heating properly again.
