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!

Gas smell during cooking cycle - Magic Chef oven

turn off the stove and call the gas company. They will come out for free and check things out. It's dangerous to be there when you're smelling gas. If you want to look into it yourself, use a soapy solution in a spray bottle and spray the gas valve and the gas line all the way from the valve to where it connects into the stove.
