My question is can the Control panel be reset or Do I have to purchase a new one? Where do I find the Model number?
Answer Hello Peggy. You can try resetting the control board by disconnecting the power for 20 to 30 minutes. If it does not reset, then you will need to replace the control board on the unit. Here is a link to help you locate the model number on your unit. http://www.appliancepartspros.com/modelnumber_locator.aspx

My oven element doesnt work but broil work. Can it be just the oven element?
Answer Hello Felix. Test the element and see if it is closed for continuity. If so, replace the board. If it is open, replace the element. 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
I have a Tappan electric range. When the top burners are working, the oven won't come on.
Answer Hello Mack,
Since the top and the bake compartment only share wiring from the terminal block, (where the power cord connects to the unit), back to the breaker, I would start at the terminal block, then to the wall outlet and back to the breaker. If there are any burned spots on the prongs that plug into the wall outlet, this is an indication of a loose receptacle and the wall outlet should be replaced. If you can sand off the burned places, the cord can still be used, but if it has heated up so there is swelling around where the prongs leave the insulated part of the plug, it should be replaced also.
Stove quit - replaced the element but seemed to not work either. I turned the oven up to 450 and it did heat enough to smell like new elements do the first time. It didn't get red though. Any advice?
You will want to check to make sure that there is 240 vac getting to the element. Check at the control board when on bake for 240 vac from L2 to bake and if there is not 240 vac then replace the control board.
