Question about Magic Chef 31000 Gas Kitchen Range

1 Answer

Get too much of a gas smell when Magic Chef oven prheats up.

I've got a Magic Chef "Super Capacity" gas oven that when we use the oven, it gives off a fairly strong smell of gas which leads me to believe the igniter is semi-faulty. Semi faulty since the oven does heat up eventually. But the oven seems to take close to 20 minutes or more to heat up to 375 which seems a bit long for me? Then there's the smell of gas which isn't overpowering, just strong enough so that you know it's there which isn't pleasant and since it didn't do it before...somethngs malfunctioning.

I can get the model # if need be, but this stove was purchases in 2000 if that helps.

Thanks for your help!

Hello,

The problem with your oven is that ignitor is weak and not drawing enough amprage to open the gas valve, the gas you smell was since the ignitor does come on it allowed the gas valve to open a wee bit but since ignitor is weak it wont allow gas valve to open fully. I know you going to doubt that what i'm telling you is correct, i base my diagnosis on my 30 years experience as a appliance repair technician.Replace ignitor and enjoy your baked meal

We have a Magic Chef in our park model trailer. It has smelled and has heavy black soot inside the oven since day one. Any suggestions or reasons for this?


Make sure the gas valve has been set on the lp selection and not the natral gas one. This will cause the problem if cooking with the wrong setting on the oven control valve.
