Question about Magic Chef 31203 Gas Kitchen Range
NO GAS SMELL. OVEN WILL NOT LITE. I THINK THERE IS A GLOW PLUG THAT IS THE PROBLEM.
With the assumption you have a gas range with electric ignition and is fully powered (plugged in); the possible problem may be the "Electric ignitor/Glow bar".
When turning on the oven, do you see a redish (good) or yellowish (not good; replace) glow emitting from the very bottom or the oven/broil area?
There are typically 2 types of electric glow bar ignitors; Round and Square. Ignitors are actually fairly easy to replace, removing 2 mounting screws and cutting/splicing 2 seperate wires together. Is your ignitor "round" (circular - like size of finger ) or "square" (rectangular - like snickers candy bar)
If your ignitor is not coming on at all; this can be a couple things;
Defective Ignitor - Gone completely Bad - Out (Assuming your have full power 110v to ignitor)
Defective Gas Valve - Assist in passing 110V to Ignitor
Defective Control Board / Thermostat: Assist in passing 110V to Ignitor
FYI - As a safety measure, the ignitor needs to "come on and appear solid red" to properly pass power to gas valve; thus opening and allowing gas to pass through the burners and combust.
