Question about Kitchen Ranges

Open Question

I have a magic chef furnace model #acd13-u60-4, 60,000 btu. When i turn on the furnace from the thermostat the unit lights up and the sound of the ignitor clicks for about 25 seconds while there is already a little flame and then the furnace ignites then shuts back down to a low flame and continues to do the same steps then finally kicks in for a while. Sometimes when it finally kicks on i hear a boom and it opens the doors where the unit is located. I do smell gas sometimes for a little while so this is telling me that there is gas buildup at times. Need some help or suggestions.

    Sorry I'm new to this site. This isn't a kitchen range. It's a furnace from a split system residential unit.

SOURCE: Gas range (oven)won't lite (gas broiler works fine)

Sounds like an ignitor problem or possibly a dirty orifice. Model #'s are usually on the frame behind the bottom drawer.

Replace the burner. Quickly. Do not use that burner until it is replaced.

SOURCE: Magic Chef Range in camp trailer, pilot light in

Hi,

The most common problem for gas surface burners is that they get gas but don't light. This is generally caused by dirt or grease splatters on the burner itself. Residential-grade range/stove burners are round and have small holes around their perimeter to allow gas to flow out and create a round flame. The gas coming from these holes is often ignited by a small vertical row of holes on the side of the burner. If these vertical holes are clogged or obstructed, the gas can't ignite.

The solution is to clean the burners thoroughly. Use a toothpick to clear the small vertical holes, then allow the burner to dry completely and try lighting it again. If it doesn't light immediately, repeat the procedure

or

May be the ignitor, replaced mine and it fixed it. A gas company guy told me that is common in Magic Chef ranges.

Thanks for contacting Fixya

SOURCE: burners sometimes will not light

You can check the ignitors/wiring by switching

the output wires at the spark module. If the

front ones work & back ones stop working, change

out the module. If no change take a look at the

ignitor(remove screw on bottom to remove

ignitor), ignitor wire & ground wire by removing

the burners.

Possible Causes Of Continuous Sparking:
Defective spark wires.
Continuous high heat can cause spark wires to

degrade. Use volt/ohm meter to determine

continuity
of spark wires. Look for obvious cuts/ abrasions

or pinch points. A defective wire can allow
spark voltage to transfer through insulation to

ground prior to reaching spark electrode. Under
normal circumstances all igniters fi re together

and if the burner in question has found an

easier
ground path the spark will go there. It will

not, however, in most cases have found a

CONTINUOUS
ground path such as what the fl ame would

provide under normal circumstances. This will

cause
the spark module to re-ignite.

I have a magic chef furnace, armstrong series if the pilot light and ignightor both work but the burners wont light is it possible the thermocuppler bad?


The thermocouple keeps the pilot light on. If the flame blows out it shuts off the gas to the pilot lite only the board that has the igniter on it supplies power to open the main burner as long as the igniter is operating. Sounds like the gas valve is nor working.

Magic Chef HMCF7WI is the green light suppose to go off ?


I not 100% sure but believe this is the power light so it should remain on when the freezer calls for cooling and go off when satisfied. If the chest wont stay cold then it sounds like the stat is gone. If it is digital, there may be a power card issue but most chest freezers are run on a standard thermostat with the capillary running up into the base of the unit.

You may need to replace the sail switch. It senses the fan speed and when it connects the gas valve should open and furnace should fire up.

Suburban rv furnace.


The best thing to do for these units is replace the ignition module, on Ebay they are cheap usually. Clean all orifices where any pressure switches or tubing connects on the induced drafts assembly, Does the pilot ever light?

How do i wire the thermostat to the magic chef furnace


Inside the furnace there is either a transformer relay with the markings of R & W stamped near the terminals or T TH or a circuit board with terminals marked R and W. This is where your thermostat wires will connect to. At the thermostat, connect the R terminal to the wire connected to the R terminal at the furnace or T terminal at furnace. The other wire goes to the W terminal on the thermostat. This will give you heat

magic chef furnaces were discontinued many years ago. Pull the motor and take it to your local motor shop. They will be able to match it. Furnace blower motors are pretty standard fractional horse motors.
