Does anyone know about thermostats and selector switches on Older Tappan stove w/ self clean from the 70's. When you turn oven to bake, the temperature goes to the highest temperature no matter what you set the oven temperature to. If you put the selector on T-Bake nothing happens. Is this a problem with the selector switch or the thermostat? Thanks!

Hi,

No model# posted :(

The over heating temp problem is likely a faulty oven temp control...but there may be more to the control ( relays, etc ) since the unit is self cleaning.

T-bake sounds like Timed Bake, the clock buttons must be set for the oven to come on and go off for timed bake.

** the temperature goes to the highest temperature no matter what you set the oven temperature to. **

The temperature is regulated by the thermostat on NON-electronically controlled (ie. NON-digital display) ovens. The thermostat would either have to be defective or there could be a short in the range's wiring (although fairly unlikely) to cause the oven to heat uncontrollably.

BTW. You can read about what information is needed to get replacement parts for your appliances in the 'Repair Parts' section of my site linked below. That information is also *very* helpful when just asking about the appliance.

** If you put the selector on T-Bake nothing happens. **

I assume "T-Bake" refers to 'timed baking' which would be used in conjunction with the appliance's clock/timer assembly. That setting in itself should not cause your overheating symptom as the temperature is still (suppose to be) regulated by the same thermostat.
