Trying to find model number of an old Magic chef gas oven
I need to order a part to fix the oven door as it is falling off; the oven works great but we need to either replace the hardware on the door or the door itself. I can not locate the model number and have looked on all doors and areas around the oven door and the drawer below.

Is the model number listed 251v-2CW that of the Oven or the part # of the element? That number is not showing up as either as a proper model #. Can you double check the Oven's Model # and list the Serial Number as well?
Find the model number on the appliance to be repaired. Look for a gray or silver label on the appliance that lists the model number and serial number. If you cannot find the tag, check the locater featured on PartSelect.com. Click the link marked "Need help finding the model number on your magic chef appliance?" Then click on the type of appliance. The guide will show possible locations for the identification label, along with a sample label for visual reference. The URL is listed in the resources section below.
Use the part number to make ordering simple. Look closely at the part you intend to replace. A part number will be printed or inscribed on any part that is large enough to display at least six digits.
Order parts from appliance retailers. Call local USA appliance shops and ask if they sell parts. If so, get a price quote for your part and ask if it's in stock, or how soon it could arrive.
Order from online parts dealers. Use your appliance model number and part description or part number to check online parts dealers for prices and ship times. PartSelect.com, RepairClinic.com and AppliancePartsPros.com all sell Magic Chef parts online. The Magic Chef website may also be able to provide needed parts. It also lists owners manuals, warranty information and installation instructions for their appliances (see Resources).
Compare prices and order fulfillment times between local retailers and online dealers. Most online dealers will offer lower prices. A local dealer may have to wait for your part to ship from their supplier. The shipping time between local and online dealers may not vary.
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!!
Hi, If the oven has a standing pilot too, Open the bottom door and locate the main burner. Follow the burner toward the rear of the oven and there will be a flame switch attatched to the burner. Hold the flame near the flame switch and the gas should ignite.
Some model do not have a standing pilot in the oven. Please get me your model number off the label located around the opening of the lower door so I can look this up and instruct you better.
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.
