Sounds like a shorted element. This can happen if the element shorts to ground near the middle of the element. Current will then flow from the unswitched side of 240 VAC to nuetral or ground, heating up the same as if on 240 VAC.

My Magic Chef model 9112XUB wall oven will not light. It has power and gas but will not ignite.What can I do to fix it myself?


If this model has electronic ignition, you can open up the broiler door , turn on the oven, and look to the rear of the broiler...there should be a sort of glow plug getting reddish/orange. If not, the oven won't light and you will need to obtain an ignitor for the oven. these are available through appliance parts distributors such as Bell Parts Suppy. If it is a standing pilot model, then first check to see if the pilot is lit...if it's not lit try lighting...if it won't stay lit, then the thermocouple is probably bad and will need to be replaced

Magic chef smooth top electric free standing oven temperature


Most likely a bad temperature sensor if the bake element is coming on and not reaching temperature.
The temperature sensor is in the back wall of the oven up high on the right or left side depending upon your model number. It is about 3 inches long and about the size of a thin pencil. It removes from the inside of the oven.

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.

Oven won't light


Hey im sorry to hear that...
I fix many ovens., however not really familiar to yours...
However instead of searching for thermostat, try looking for either thermo-couple, falme flaiure device or falme safety device these are the three main termonologies used....

Hope this helps......

Im sorry cant provide you with a full on solution ... but my guess is that your is probably a thermocouple......
