Magic Chef Oven lights and shuts off

A friend of mine has a Magic Chef oven that lights up and turns off intermittently, without reaching the preset temperature. When you set the oven temperature, the ignitor light comes on but the burner won't light until a few minutes later. Before it even comes close to reaching the preset temperature, the oven burner goes out. Is this a thermostat problem or an ingitor problem?

Re: Magic Chef Oven lights and shuts off

This could be caused by a lack of air within the oven cavity, once the air is used up the flame will go out, it will then work again once it is relite, but will probably do the same again, this could be dangerous and requires on site proffesional attention. Regards Engineer

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.

Magic Chef Gas Ovens

If your Magic Chef gas oven doesn't light, most likely the oven igniter (rectangle style) is the problem. The igniter may glow and appear to be working, but doesn't get get hot enough to open the oven bake valve. I recommend replacing the igniter first.

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.

Fan in oven will not shut off, F-4

Hi jsachse,

The F4 fault code description is a shorted or open oven temperature sensor (RTD). Please check the sensor harness and harness connection between oven sensor and oven control. Replace oven temperature sensor (RTD) if wiring is ok.

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.
