Question about Kitchen Ranges

1 Answer

I have a Magic Chef range. My baking element in the oven caught fire and broke in half from the heat. I am trying to replace the element but am not sure if I am supposed to disconnect the element from the yellow wire in the oven at the clamp or if there is another way.How should the baking element be removed?

My Chef Classic Wall mounted fan forced oven stopped working. Its grill section working. Fan and the light in the oven working well. Bot oven doesnot heat up. Please give a tip what is probably wrong?


The bake element has gone bad. They can visually look fine but still be bad. To check and replace that element you will unfortunately need to kill the power and remove it from the wall. Remove the back cover. Check for a low resistance (around 16 ohms) across the bake element. If the resistance is high the element is bad. Google the make and model for a replacement element.

The oven won't heat on bake


Hi,You have inspected both the baking and broiler heating elements, and you still can't find a problem with your range/oven parts? Inspect the connections between the heating element and the terminal. You could have a badly connected electric wire, or a burned out electric wire. Range/Oven parts must deal with both voltage and extreme heat, so it's a common problem to have a burned wire from time to time. This is a simple fix and if you check this problem in your initial run of troubleshooting, you may save yourself unnecessary purchases of range/oven parts, etc.

Also Voltage Check can be the problem.
Try flipping the breaker off/on slowly a couple times, sometimes you can loose half the line without actually tripping the breaker.
If this does nothing, check the voltage at the plug
L1 to L2 should be 240 volts
L1 to Neutral and L2 to Neutral, both should be 120 volts.
If OK
Unplug the unit and check the wires at the terminal strip in the machine to make sure none are loose or burned out
If OK
Check the power at the terminal strip.
Be careful as 240 volts is lethal !!!

I have a magic chef range/oven. For the last few months, it has taken longer and longer for the oven to heat up to temp. Now it won't get more than 90 degrees or so. What is the problem??


Turn off the power to the range. Remove the bake element from inside the oven. Be careful not to let the wires go back into the oven cavity. Take a volt/ohm meter set for ohms or continuity and test the bake element leads. If you get no reading replace the element. If you do get a reading,replace the temperature sensor in the oven.

Oven doesn't work after replacing the bottom (baking) element


Will the clock control accept the bake and temperature request?
If so,
You will need to remove the rear panel of the range and test the bake element leads for 220 volts when the oven control is set to bake and is turned on.
