Question about Magic Chef Ovens

Old Magic Chef Gas Oven won't light

I have an old Magic Chef gas oven (Model 318Y44LW) that was recently re-connected to the gas line. It has been sitting in my basement for at least the past 4 years. I am not sure that the oven worked previously - but all the pilots light, the burners work and it was re-connected by a HVAC pro but he didn't know about old gas ovens. We lit the pilot for the oven, and it lights fine. If you hold in the knob after you turn it to WARM, after about 10 or so seconds, the flame reaches the thermo coupler, ignites the element, and stays lit for about 10 seconds. If you try and increase the temperature, it extinguishes the element, but the pilot remains on at all times. If I try to just set the oven - say to 350 - nothing happens...not sure if I am not waiting long enough or the oven needs repair... Thanks! OBTW...Harvest Gold!!!

Sounding like thermostat isn't working. If you could ohm out the t-stat should be closed when you call for heat. If that passes the test then only thing it could be is the gas valve.

We have a Magic Chef gas oven (model # CPL1100BDW) without electronic ignition. The oven isn't working. The oven pilot is out, can't get it to light, and the oven will not light - (obviously)....


Hello & Welcome to FixYa
If the pilot is clean and still won't light then the problem is with the safety valve that won't open and so needs replacement. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

Oven won't heat up, you can see a little orange light glowing and it heated a little bit, but now the light does not come on at all. Also, not sure this is a double oven, but it does have the broiler...

How do i light a old magic chef stove


Hi,
If the stove is the one that I think that it is... you will have to lift the cover and then between the burners there will be a small orifice that you light... the pilot light will then light the burners when the gas is turned on to them...

I can't find the pilot light shut off valve on my Magic Chef oven. Where is the gas shut off valve? It is 20 years old, uni burners with self cleaning oven. 314-837-1073


Good chance there is no shut off for the pilot by its self. Of course one should have been installed at the back where the line comes into the house. If you are smelling gas please turn off your gas until you find the problem.

I don't have the model number for this range but it's a very old magic chef gas oven. What I need is the oven temperature knob. The knob used to have all of the temperature numbers printed on it however...


If you go any hardware store (Lowe's, Home Depot) they have universal knob replacement kits. Take your old knob with you and ask for help from someone who looks like they know something (the old guy). Its so much cheaper this way, exact replacement knobs can run $20 or more each. Good luck!!

Magic chef oven/stove top range not staying hot


Hi, It very well could be the ignitor. Sometimes they work at first and then will not open the gas valve later in cycle. You can set the oven to heat and watch the ignitor. If it glows and the gas will not ignite in 30 to 45 seconds, the igniter is getting weak. I jope this helps.
Please let me know if I can assit you further.
