You need to have a check over these

  • Loose wiring connections at the ignitor, the grounding strap, or spark module.
  • Broken or pinched ignitor wire between the burner and module

Hi,

If your concern is with only one of several, then possible culprits could be:

  • the heating element;
  • the switch.
Both of the above could be tested with a continuity tester.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

    Due to regional variations in design and manufacturing, some of the steps may differ slightly. To replace a defective heating element, please follow below procedures:


    • Before anything, pls make sure that the power to the Magic Chef Kitchen Range is off either at the circuit breaker or unplug from the mains;

    • Raise the cooktop. To do this, on some versions/models, the retaining trim must be removed by removing the retaining screws under the front edge of the cooktop;

    • Raise the cooktop;

    • the heating elements would now be exposed;

    • unplug the element's wiring harness. It is a good idea to mark the wires where they are connected or draw a connection diagram;

    • The entire cooktop could now be removed;

    • place the cooktop upside down on a flat surface padded with a blanket or rags to avoid scratching the cooktop;

    • Remove the defective element by undoing the screws holding the element mounting bracket to the cooktop;

    • turn over the element assembly to gain access to the temperature limiter and element;

    • Normally, the element is encased in a fragile insulated casting;

    • remove the wires from the element (again making a wiring diagram would be helpful);

    • Remove and replace the defective element and limiter by undoing the screws holding the element to its bracket;

    • lift away from the bracket. Install the new element and limiter assembly by reversing the dismantling steps;

    • Please make sure the new element is flat against the underside of the cooktop in the correct position;

    • Ensure that the element's wires are returned to the correct terminals/connectors.

    • Plug in the element's wiring harness;

    • close the cooktop and replace any retaining screws.
    Usually, a replacement element wold also have an instructions sheet (16000542) for a more appropriate procedure for your particular version/model.

Are you getting any fault codes? Check this relay board for coil voltage when the unit shuts down by itself. If the voltage is on the coil but not at the element, this relay board is bad.

    The relay board is controlled by the clock control.


    Does the clock display any codes?

Magic chef range burners and oven have no power. What can be checked.


Video is kinda veg. If nothing heats up at all, check the circuit breaker in the house fuse panel, check the plug in behind you stove.
Now if you are having just a problem with the oven heating up, you may have a bad heating element or a bad switch.

Same is you just have one stove top burner.

Please, If you do not have working knowledge of electricity do not try to fix this your self, call a repair person.

This oven and range work from two separate regulators and it sounds like the one for the oven has failed. Have it replaced and that should get you going again. Hope this helps. Good luck.

Magic chef electric fee standing range model 35ja-26x


Sounds like a shorted element. This can happen if the element shorts to ground near the middle of the element. Current will then flow from the unswitched side of 240 VAC to nuetral or ground, heating up the same as if on 240 VAC.

Replacement Parts For Vintage Magic Chef stove


You probably have a 1940's model of Magic Chef. Check for the model number under the lid of the cook top on the upper right hand side of the stove. It should have the model number and the serial number, too. You will need both. The Old Applicance Club run by Jack Santoro is the place to go along with a site called "Antique gas stoves"in Georgia. Good luck with the world of vintage stoves.
