Question about Magic Chef 31000 Gas Kitchen Range

1 Answer

Oven Won't light anymore

On our gas range, the electric igniters quit working some months back, and today, our oven would not light. It seems as though it is taken forever for the oven to get warm. We have a thermostat inside, and had to wait and wait for it to get up to temperature. No electric noise of ignition was heard today when we went to turn it on. Is this something we can fix ourselves? The oven is about 11 or 12 years old.
Inside the broiler drawer it said: Maytag 31213 WAV .. On the front of the appliance it says it is a Magic Chef
I really do hope you can help us fix this ourselves, we cannot afford to buy a new one at this time, thank you in advance!

When your oven was working did it "click" to start? or do you have a glow bar style ignitor. if yo u have a glow bar ignitor chances are thats the issue. if your oven would click to light then there might be a few issues on that but just like you top burners you should be able to light the oven with a long match and or barbecue lighter

You will need to look and see if the igniter is glowing a bright red. If it is weak, the oven will not light. Here is the igniter if you need to order it.

Also check and make sure your getting 3.2-3.6 volts AC to the valve.

On my whirlpool gas range only 1 burner out of 5 will ignite. oven light works, oven ignites. only 3 months old and worked fine until now.


Most often when cleaning, soapis left behind and obstructs the flow of ignition gas normally directed at the exact point of the spark. Check this area and use a small wire brush to clean these area of the burners that do nto work. Let us know if this helps. Eric Campion

Our MAGIC CHEF gas range has a pilot light that comes on, the ignitor comes on, but the oven does not work heat. Any ideas would be appreciated.


First off, decide which you have, a pilot lite or an igniter coil. In electronic controlled units, when the oven won't light, as long as there's gas available, 98% of the time the igniter is bad, even though the old one may glow and seem to be very bright, it could have a small hairline crack in the ceramic, which would not allow the proper amount of electrical current to travel to the gas oven safety valve, which would then make it open and release the gas. A new igniter works almost every time.

My Maytag Gemini double oven gas...........the bottom oven won't heat up past 100 degrees. What can I do to troubleshoot?


Hi

This issue seems to be with the gas inlet valve or the igniter itself that is bad. Gas Valve has a bi-metal that open when a certain amount of current flows through it to heat it up. Make sure that the glow bar is not cracked. Faulty igniters can allow correct current to flow to the oven gas valve for it to open but not get quite hot enough to ignite the gas burner immediately. Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.

Gas range won't ignite. We had PGE and come over


This sounds like a failed burner igniter, also called a spark module. These are pretty easy to replace since the module itself is located at the back of the stove under an access panel. The price is around 40 to 60 dollars. Lately it seems that these newer stoves have weaker spark modules. I see dead modules on models less than 2 years old, where it used to be more like 5 or more years on the older ones.

Stove burner igniter does not work.


Your problem is not the igniter itself, but the burner switch that controls the igniter. All the igniters get their power from one spark module that is mounted somewhere in back of the oven. That's why you are able to get all the igniters to spark with only one burner control turned on. This is normal. That is also why you are able to light the burner in question buy turning on another burner. The spark is being provided by a switch that is working. To answer your question: the igniter is removable, but I don't think it's necessary. Cleaning them generally doesn't make them work better. I would check the wiring from the spark module to the burner switch and/or replace the switch. I hope this helps.
