SOURCE: oven quit working

Hi. this is common in many old gas range ovens. There is a set of coils that are attached to the gas valve assembly. These coils , when activated and operational, open and close the main and secondary valves in this unit. They are controlled by the main ERC(clock/oven control board). I recommend checking these coils and there respective wiring harnesses. if the clips and wires are worn and corroded, simply replace the entire wire harness.

Now, if the wiring harness and wires that are connected to the coils look good and there are no signs of corrosion on the wires and connector clips, this will confirm that the coils have failed and you will need to replace them.

You can also preform an additional test with a multimeter. simply connect your multimeter or voltage meter to both terminal posts located on the coils. once your meter is connected, start the oven cycle. you should register some sort of current during this test at this time. if the current is sufficient and the coils do not initiated the valve action, this will confirm coil failure. if the meter dosen't register a current during oven operation, this will confirm ERC(control) failure. you will have to replace the Oven control board in this case.

The Most common issue in this situation will most defiantly be the coil assembly and not the control.

Please rate and god bless:)

First unplug for a couple of minutes to reset the control. If that doesn't work you need a new control.

Where do I find the orface and air intake on the GE Range


Sealed burner ranges the orifice is in the center of each burner, down inside(brass color). Open style burners the orifice should be under the lift off burner or in some case where the burner tube goes back to the control panel at the control knob. Almost all will be brass color. Oven orifices are at the end of the burner tube where the gas would come into the burner. Air adjustments are usually right near the orifices. A small sliding window with 1 screw holding the adjustment in place.

Why do I smell gas when the hoses are good?


That stove has sealed burners. It is not uncommon for folks to try and raise the top and when they do they break the lines on the front to the front sealed burners. To lift the top ya must twist each burner a quarter turn then get it out far enough to remove the screws which hold the burner tubing in place. Once them screws is removed you can lift and look for leaks. I have also seen places where the oven tubing bends get a small leak down to the oven valve. One more thang to look for is a dim ignitor. if it is dim and weak it might be allowing a tiny amount of gas to come out before ignition. Bubble test for leaks you must!!

I have a small, 4-burner gas stove; no wondow in the oven door. I think my stove had a mouse infestation. I think the insulation above the oven has mouse urine in it; I can smell it, although there is no...


It is common for mice to get into the oven box insulation and nest. I had this problem before and its not likely you'll be able to get rid of the odor without replacing the insulation. Another issue is any fecal matter the mice leave behind. This can become a health hazard (expecially in an appliance that you use to prepare food). I would recommend replacing the insulation. If the model oven is correct, the insulation can be purchased for around $20 at any of the following websites:

searspartsdirect.com
pcappliancerepair.com
appliancepartspros.com
repairclinic.com

The part number will depend upon your COMPLETE model number (located on a nameplate around the oven door opening, or lower drawer opening (if equipped). On some models, the model number will appear on the back of the operator console. The first three sites on the list include exploded view parts illustrations to assist you with locating and properly indentifying any parts you may need. The insulation for the Magic Chef 31000 series is listed under the "Body" parts list.


To replace the insulation on MOST ranges, all you should have to do is lift the range top to access the oven box. The top on most ranges can be lifted by removing a series of screws that are usually holding it secure under the bottom of the front edge. You will need to open the oven door to see them. CAUTION: Do not lean on the oven door as this may cause damage to the door hinges and springs.

On the Magic Chef 31000 series, it appears that you will need to remove the burner control knobs, followed by screws holding the burner control control panel in place. You should also remove all the orifice covers and burner grates from the top of the range. Once the burner control is removed, remove the top panel, followed by the burner box top panel. The insulation will be wrapped around the oven box. It should just lift out. Depending on the potential infestation, you may want to wear a dust mask and use a vaccum to **** up any loose debris. CAUTION: Turn off the gas supply BEFORE attempting any repairs - if this is a gas range.

If you have questions, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.

HOW TO CONVERT FROM NATURAL GAS T PROPANE


Their are 2 types of ranges. Ones with sealed burners and ones that do not have sealed burners. The sealed burner ranges must have a kit to replace the orifices. The none seal burner models are simply called crank down and flip models. That means you flip the screw on top of the regulator to where it reads LP. and then you tighten down the spuds on the top burners and the oven valve and then you adjust the air shutters.

Note: Some stoves with sealed burners cannot be converted to LP. The model number you posted is not a correct model number.

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
