Tappan Electric Range No Bake No Broil
« on: November 09, 2011, 02:38:41 PM »

Tappan 31-2979 electric range model with mechanical clock. All the cooktop burners work but the oven does not. Both the broil and bake elements were working fine. I was testing the oven self cleaning and it tripped the breaker in my house. After that, the oven was still working but a few days later it stopped working. None of the oven indicator lights come on now (they do for the burners). Both the broil and bake elements tested fine for continuity.  The oven selector switch also tested fine for continuity in all positions. Pretty sure the thermostat is fine. Does anyone have any ideas on what could be the problem? If the mechanical clock is bad, will that cause the oven and broil to not work? Thanks!

Self clean latch area has a switch which will render the oven useless if not set properly. Since you has the trouble around the time you tried the self clean I would start there.
