Magic Chef Gas Ovens

If your Magic Chef gas oven doesn't light, most likely the oven igniter (rectangle style) is the problem. The igniter may glow and appear to be working, but doesn't get get hot enough to open the oven bake valve. I recommend replacing the igniter first.

I have a magic chef ovan/mic unit, when I press the bake option and set the temp the igniter goes on but the gas does not kick in. model # 54FN-5TKVWM


even though the ignitor glows it doesn't mean it's good it opens the gas valve by amps not just because it glows,if you turn on the stove and when you see it glow if the flame doesn't ignite within 40 to 50 seconds you have a bad ignitor.if you leave it alone for a few minutes does the flame ignite?the only other thing it could be is a bad gas valve but most likely it will be the ignitor

I have a magic chef gas oven, top burners work. Igniter glows, oven won't light. I have 2vac at oven igniter valve


If the bake ignitor comes on - check the amperage on the bake ignitor wires when it's on. If the ignitor is a round style - amperage should be 2.5-3A, if the ignitor is rectangular - 3 - 3.6A. If less than 2.5A or 3A respectively - replace ignitor.
Ignitor part numbers for round style ones: 4342528, WB2X9154, SGR403, 5304401265;
rectangular styles: 12400035, WB13K21, WB2X9998, SGR412, NR020, 5303935066, 814269, 9753108.
Ignitors of the same shape (i.e. rectangular) are interchangeable, if you can splice the wires.

Good luck!

Magic Chef freestanding gas oven/stove - oven won't ignite and heat, stove works fine.
