Re: Magic Chef CPR1100ADW

I just dealt with the same problem. On this model, the (already very compact) oven temperature control includes a pilot safety valve. With the control turned to OFF, push in on the knob while applying a lighted match to the pilot. After the pilot lights, keep holding the knob in for a few seconds. When you release it, the pilot flame should stay on.

Me, I'm interested in why the pilot went out in the first place and what to do if it keeps going out. IS there that repair manual (online or in print) that jvmagic was asking about?

Re: Magic Chef CPR1100ADW

Is the pilot lit or does it have electronic ignition (you will hear a tap tap tap noise when you turn it on).if you do light the pilot and it doesnt stay lit the thermocouple is most likley bad (a very cheap part).remove the racks and the side rails then the bottom cover can be pulled out.if the unit is electronic reply to me and well go from there.

How do you light the oven? We turn the dial and

I take it the range is electric ignition because you say the top burners have a clicking(igniter) noise. If the top burners are electric ignition then the oven is also. The oven probably uses a hot surface igniter and that is why you do not hear any clicking. Turn the oven on and open the broiler compartment. You should see a bright glow from the hot surface igniter. If you do not see any glow there may be a grounding issue or the igniter could be bad. If you do see a glow but the burner does not come on in a few minutes then give the gas valve a tap with a wrench and see if the burner comes on. Shut it off and then back on several times. If the burner continues to light after this you may have fixed the problem. If it does not come on gas valve could be sticking or igniter is weak.

Most, if not all, gas ovens do not have pilot lights any longer. They are electronically ignited. You could have a loose wire on the igniter or a faulty igniter. If your oven is new it should be covered by the warranty.

Magic chef oven pilot light out

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.

Replacement Parts For Vintage Magic Chef stove

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.
