I have an 1960's upper level double oven tappan range that needs new oven heating elements. I can't find the model plate with the parts number or the parts number for the large oven element or the broiler element. every repair person I've tried can't help me

Hello - We too have a "Fabulous 400" and while we love it, the 40" size may not work with our kitchen re-do plans.

Anyway, remove the right burner and look for an ID plate in that area. That's where our's is. if not there, peak under the other burners. Even when you find the model #, which willproibably be 400-2, etc., dodn't expect much from Tappan. They stopped making parts decades ago.

We got l;ucky and got the repairman from a USED appliance store to come fix ours a few years ago. My suggestion would be to find a store that specializes in USED appliances and try to get their repair person to help, even if it's on a Sunday on his own time.

I don't have a time frame yet..in fact the electrician has yet to give the nod that we can ever do what we want to do..but e-mail me in a few weeks or month and perhaps I'll be able to help you with parts. I found a Fab 400 at a garage sale and took it for parts. I know I have a cutting board and some oven elements in the attic....but I can't let them go until I know what we'll be doing.

Best of luck,

Bob

One of the regular burners doesn't work and the thermostatically controlled top burner unit has been a little "flakey" but seems to be working at this time. Would it be possible to get these parts. You can email me at Toe-Tapper1@juno.com

Bob,

My mother is 97 years young and has a Tappan Fabulous 400, Model # AV 442-0. The oven will not work and she, at her age , does not want to buy a new oven. We are told that the flame switch tube and constant pilot are out and have been unable to find that part. I found a partial picture of the part on repairclinic.com (item 2125) but they do not have the part. Just wondering if you have that part in your attic?

Thanks...Jim Ford

I am very interested in finding a Tappan Fabulous 400. We have had ours for years and absolute love it! We need to replace at least one oven and have trouble with one of the burners. If anyone knows where to find one or how to get parts/repairs, please contact me.

We have a Tappan #442 that we are willing to give away. We want someone to want it, not to be thrown in a junkyard. Contact us.
