It is fairly unlikely you'll be able to find an owner's manual for that age of product. It won't list replacement part numbers anyway.

The second number (191T102F04) looks like a Tappan "part number" and is likely the part number of the piece of paper you're looking at (the wiring diagram). That will be of no use in getting parts for your appliance.

The "model" number printed on the wiring diagram is also usually incomplete and may not be useful for getting parts for the appliance. The only reliable place it will be found is printed on the model and serial number identification plate.

On many of the Tappan 400 (and 500) models, that tag is located beneath the right most surface element/burner.

But even then, it is unlikely you would find a listing for a Tappan 400 model in any of the online services as it is too old. Most of those services have information from the 1980's or late 70's at most, not the 60's when such model were in their heyday.

: OVEN WILL IT WORK? THE PART NUMBER IS RP626.

As long as the element is the same physical size, approximate wattage and voltage, I can't see any reason it should not work. You can find those specifications for that replacement part at the link below.
