Question about Magic Chef Kitchen Ranges
When you turn the thermostat on the pilot light goes to secondary flame. The flame kicks on to the oven safety valve thermocouple. When it gets hot enough it generates millivolts and opens the safety valve. Here's how to check it; Make sure the flame kicks down and covers the bulb of the thermocouple. You can use a lighter if you're not sure. If no gas comes out It might be the valve that's bad. Now, some of the older models used a flame switch. It looks like a dryer thermostat with two wires on it and the thermocouple coming out of the middle. To check it, short the two wires together or use a ohm meter to see if it's closed.
