Oven light receptacle broken - bulb base broke off

  • Difficulty: Easy

Turned power off at electrical panel. Pulled oven away from wall. Removed back cover (6 screws), then unplugged wires from old receptacle. I had to pull the squeeze clips backwards & break them to remove the old receptacle - couldn't squeeze them enough to remove them otherwise. The old receptacle came out through the inside of the oven, and the new one snapped in easily from inside the oven as well. Replaced wiring, installed new bulb, restored power & tested. Replaced back cover. Good time to vacuum under/behind where the oven usually lives before sliding it back to the wall.

Bought two to try out to see if they fit and worked-popped out the old ones and the new ones fit and worked like a new stove. Came back to this web site and bought the other two so all burners are now brand new without having to replace the stove.

Insulation was missing

  • Customer: Bryan from Holland MI
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: More than 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Screw drivers
  • 5 of 7 people found this instruction helpful
Apparently, the original insulation had been removed due to a mouse infestation-the unit had been in storage for a while. After removing about 50 screws, I had all the body panels off and cleaned out the interior of the stove then installed the new insulation. I put it all back together and hooked it up- works just like new. I only paid 60 bucks for this oven, so all in all, not a bad deal.

Push button oven light switch broke and fell inside the console.

Determined how to proceed to disassemble the console. Unplugged the power cord, shut off the gas valve, removed six philips head screws from back panel and one philips head screw from side panel that held the front glass cover in place. Removed the nut off of the old switch body and the two oven control knobs and the timer/clock knob. Removed the front glass by pulling the right side forward and sliding it slightly to the right. Disconnected the two wires from the back of the old switch.Removed the nut holding the old switch body to the console frame. Replaced with the new switch and did a reassembly by backtracking my steps. I even remembered to clean both sides of the control console glass before reinstalling it. Placed the range back in position, checked it for level, plugged the power cord in and checked for the proper operation of the new switch, turned on the gas and checked for any possible leaks from moving the range. The switch was a perfect match. The picture on the grid paper background really helped in identifying the switch that I needed.

A mouse living in my stove!

One night I found a mouse living in my stove. We found it literally living underneath the top of the stove (the part where the burners are that you have to lift up). The insulation on the inside of the stove was literally covered with mouse poop, dog food, dog treats, and scraps of food among other things. It was totally nasty and I thought we would have to buy a new stove. However, I searched online and found replacement insulation on PartSelects website and ordered it. It was cheap and the fix was removing old insulation, vaccuming out and cleaning the stove then replacing the insulation with the new one. PartSelect had a great price and shipped promptly.

Your website is great...easy and it literally took me no mote than 5 minutes to find what I needed and order...and received it VERY quickly.

An all-purpose hardware-store knob didn't work, the shaft was way too short.With the aid of the Part-Select diagram,I found the correct stove model number. The simple little Tappan oven control knob cost over $30. I checked other appliance part vendors on-line, but found their part descriptions imprecise and equally expensive. I ordered the part and it arrived in 2 days and worked perfectly. An appliance store had told me I wouldn't find a retrofit on such an old stove and I would have to buy a new stove!

I forgot to remove something I had saved in the oven, planning to remove it before using the range.
