Question about Magic Chef 9512 Electric Single Oven

Oven igniter does not light unless hit

We have a 1995 Magic Chief single oven. To start the oven, even since we got it, I would turn on oven, wait about 30 seconds and then take a wooden spon and hit the igniter and it would light. The problem is that if I baked something a long time and oven turned off (as too hot), it would never turn back on unless I hit igniter agin (which I have trouble doing as oven is now too hot). the igniter was made by EATON Controls in Illinois with following specs: G-LP .5 psi, 3.03/3.3 VAC, 3.3/3.6amps. I now want to bake more often than in past. What should I do

I just cleaned by hand by magic chef wall oven and now I can't


Pilotless ignition means that a hot surface ignitor lights the oven burner. It does take a little bit of time to light the burner. Maybe 30 seconds. If you want to make sure it lights take the bottom panel out from the oven and observe the hot surface glow and the burners light. No real danger as the gas valve will only open after the hot surface ignitor has satisfied the gas valve. Let me know how it goes. ken

THE OVEN WILL NOT HEAT


How old is the unit? Sometimes the igniter can glow but if it isn't drawing the right amount of power to open the gas valve then that is the safety that is built into the oven... So unless the power requirement is meant gas valve will not light. Even though the hot surface igniter is glowing red hot. chances are the igniter is bad. Let me know what turns up. ken

How to light Oven Pilot for Magic Chef stove 31000 PAW


There is a cover plate that has two screws holding it down. Inspect the pilot area and you will see a hot surface igniter sitting right next to it.. That is what lights pilot and then the pilot lights main burner. You need a new igniter. Also do not touch any part of the hot surface igniter as human oil will shorten the life of part.
