Question about Kitchen Ranges

Magic Chef LP range produces soot whenever oven is on.

I have a Magic Chef Gourmet Collection Range running on LP gas. It came with our house and we don't have a copy of the owners manual. The sticker on the inside says model number 31DN-2KX. I tried calling Magic Chef customer service only to be told that this is not one of their model numbers and thus they won't help me. The stove burners work fine, but the oven is producing soot that covers everything inside of it. I think that it's not getting enough air intake, so the gas is coming out too rich, but I can't find anyway to adjust it. I can adjust the amount of gas being used, but lowering that just causes it to not light.

The vent (shutter) allowing air to mix with the gas has shut. Access the burner with the oven off, of course, and look for the shutter (a sliding 'door'). It usually has one screw holding it n place and an elongated slot to permit adjustment. It may also turn. Since your burner is producing soot, you need to open the shutter more. Loosen the screw and slide the shutter open more. Turn the oven on and look for a nice blue flame, and one that doesn't run too far over the burner. Keeping in mind that everything there will be hot when the burner is on, and also for a long time after it is off, you can use a long-bladed screwdriver to push the shutter back and forth to get the flame you are looking for. If the screw is loose, a gentle tap will be enough. When you are see that optimum blue flame and you are satisfied, let the oven cool off for an hour or so, and final tighten the screw--making sure you haven't moved the shutter much when tightening. If this doesn't work you have a bigger problem and need to call a service person. Your local gas company sometimes will direct you to a person.

You can find the vent as the burner mets the orifice, this is part of the burner it's at the end of the burner , the invention of the stoves to burn gas, is that they have to have a vent, so everything that burns gas it has to have the vent for the mixture of gas and air. or you will have the soot,wich can not be burne inside.

Is there a conversion kit for magic chef CPR1100ADW


Yes, there is an LP conversion kit for the CPR1100ADW. Sears Parts Direct lists it here: http://www.searspartsdirect.com/model-number/cpr1100adw/1429/0124002.html . Select the Gas Control drawing. The direct link to the LP orifice kit, part number 74009923, is http://www.searspartsdirect.com/part-number/74009923/0022/464.html?modelNumber=CPR1100ADW&categoryName=Free%20Standing,%20Gas&brandName=MAGIC%20CHEF . Note: the Magic Chef range uses the same parts as a Whirlpool or Maytag range.

The gas regulator also has to be adjusted. Most ranges with converter kits available just require the regulator to be removed and turned 180 degrees before replacing it. It's recommended that a LP service person do the work. The air flow may need to be adjusted and any mistakes could be dangerous.

I hope this helps.

Our Magic Chef oven just began making a whirring noise and the clock stopped functioning properly at the same time.


Hi Peggy Freeman,

I suppose that it is a Maytag Magic Chef.
From your description my conclusion is an electrical fault on the clock.
You have to open the cooker and remove the connection to the clock.

BE CAREFULLY

Always insulate the connector, as it is mains grid.

When it is indeed the clok, the noise will stop, but you an not use the clock anymore.

Kind regards, Dik

I have a Magic Chef Range model number 31fn-7 and I need to find out how to change it from Natural gas to LP


You should be able to go to Lowe's or Home Depot and ask them if they have a LP conversion kit. They should be pretty much universal...however, you need the installation booklet and/or the owner's manual. There should be a diagram in the book that tells you what size orafice goes where...If you really want to insure that you have the correct orafices for your model specific unit, contact the Mfr. and they should be able to give you all of the correct info.

We have a magic chef gas stove with sealed burners. were trying to change it over from natural gas to L.P. do we haveto have different orfaces?


Do you have your owner's manual? It will tell you how to convert it to propane and what size orifices to use with each burner. Not all the burners are the same size, so you will need this info in order to install the right size orifices. The data plate on the oven, which is usually behind the bottom pull out drawer, will tell you what the BTU rating is for each stovetop and oven/broiler burner. If you don't have the owner's manual, reply back with the exact model # you have (it's listed on the data plate too) and I'll look it up for you. You will need a small nut driver tool to change the orifices. As soon as you provide more info, I'll try to help you further. Douglas

I have an early 70's Magic Chef series VI oven/stove. The stove works fine. The oven takes about 30 minutes to light. When oven knob is turned pilot works fine. There is no gas odor before the oven lights.


My model is a UA119A-2W and I cannot find a place to light the oven pilot. Nor can I find a copy of the owner's manual anywhere online. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Gas range burner flame too high and too yellow.


Did it work OK in that location before the changes?
Sounds like you used Natural gas parts instead of LP.
Lp orifices have smaller holes than Nat.

Flames in oven are WAY too high! Having trouble lowering them.


Hi! melisrus
If you are using LP, even if you change the regulator settings from Natural Gas to LP Gas, the orifices all need to be changed. The Orifices should have come with the new unit, if not contact Hotpoint.
www.hotpoint.com
Make sure you order the instruruction manual and this is an Oven with Range Top, you will need orifices for all the burners on the range top.
