Tappan Gas Oven Issues PLEASE HELP!

Hi My name is Corey and this is my first post here,

Long story short, I bought a forclosure home and this oven was included and very clean so I would like to use it but I am having issues with the oven staying lit.

From the START this is what the sypthoms have been and work thats been done:

1.When "Preheating" oven Ignitor would glow, gas would light, and oven would start heating up. It would only stay lit for aprox 4-5 minutes then would go out with ignitor still glowing for a bit before it stopped glowing as well. The display would still read "Pre" as if is was still pre-heating. It seems to only heat up to 250 degrees F

2. I replaced the Ignitor with a new unit-----No Change

3. I replaced the Temp Probe with a new unit----No Change

The top 5 burners have no issues with staying on and the only other issue is that the lower RH burner doesn't ignite on its own but once lit it will stay on.

I am at a loss and need the oven to work. I do not have the funds for a whole new unit so if anyone has any ideas or suggestions I would be very greatful!

Thank you for taking the time to read.

Hi Corey.... welcome to the forums.

Well...... you replaced the two most common parts to cause your problem. That would leave the safety gas valve and the control board.

The only real way to diagnose the problem is with a voltmeter. You'd need to check either at the back of the control board or at the gas valve.

Question... after the original preheat when the flame went off.... would the oven relight again a second time ?

Thank you for resopnding PJmax,

The oven would not light again right away a second time. It seems I would have to wait a little while.
