When I turn on oven, it doesn't heat up. Igniter isn't cracked and tests fine. What else could it be, the igniter lines?
Answer Hello Jeezy. You will need to look and see if the igniter is glowing a bright red. If it is weak, the oven will not light. Also check and make sure your getting 3.2-3.6 volts AC to the valve. Hope this helps.

MY BURNERS WORK FINE BUT MY OVEN AND BROILER ARE NOT LIGHTING IGNETER IS GLOWING YELLOW BUT STILL WONT LIGHT
Answer Curtis, Sounds like a weak igniter 5303935066 the igniter should glow "white" hot, and draw 3.2 to 3.6 amps within 90 seconds of it being energized. If it only gets to an orange or red glow, it's weak and can't draw the proper amperage to open the safety valve.
Oven would not ignite, so I orderedt the igniter (5303935066) and replaced it however the oven still will not ignite. I checked the continuity on the new igniter and the safety valve and both are good. Not sure where to go from here?
This is the way to test the unit when the oven will not ignite. Test for 3.2-3.6 vac at the gas safety valve with the igniter turned on. If the voltage is there, you have a bad safety valve. If the voltage is low, you have a weak igniter and the igniter will need to be replaced. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
Hi I was tightening the nut on the flame spreader and the screw part broke off how do I fix it, thanks
The screw part that broke off actually comes as part of the burner assembly and you would need to replace the burner to get the screw to hold the flame spreader. The part number for the screw is 316114300.
I have a Tappan Gas Oven purchased in 1985. No problems until now. The oven nor broiler will turn on. The burners all work fine. I put a new oven ignitor in the first of July. Worked great until last week. Now the oven won't heat at all or the broiler. Any suggestions what might be the problem. Can parts be ordered for this age of oven? I was told the oven was unfixable, but I don't want to give up yet. Thank you.
The first thing to check is to see if the igniter is coming on. If it is then test at the safety valve and see if it has 3.2 to 3.6 vac of power. If it does then the valve is bad and would need to be replaced. If not then the igniter is bad and will need to be replaced again. The model number listed is not coming up as a valid model and we would need to have that to see if there are any parts available.
