    I'm a little confussed why you think the igniter is bad when it glows all the time the thermostat is at 350 degrees? Isn't it the oven gas control valve that stopped opening???

  • tdg47 Jan 28, 2009

    I used an ammeter on the wire that connects to the oven valve and it reads only 2.3 amps. Hate to keep asking but is this the correct thing to do?

No, that is a top burner valve. Most likely the igniter is bad, part # 12400035. The only way to test it is with an ammeter; it must draw a minimum of 3.3 amps to cause the valve to open. Oven valve part # 7501P133-60. These go bad as well, but not nearly as often. If you are going to take a risk, try the igniter first. Available for $40 at and elsewhere. Hope this helps!

    It has to draw that 3.3 amps to force the valve open. I know it looks and sounds confusing, but in this exact situation I have used my ammeter many many times, and 90% of the time the amp draw is too low. Upon replacing the igniter; voila - heat! Hope this helps!

    Yes - or clamp it on either igniter wire - try it again with the new igniter (gas off!!) and you will be a believer - and smarter than most humans as well!

I have a magic chef ovan/mic unit, when I press the bake option and set the temp the igniter goes on but the gas does not kick in. model # 54FN-5TKVWM

even though the ignitor glows it doesn't mean it's good it opens the gas valve by amps not just because it glows,if you turn on the stove and when you see it glow if the flame doesn't ignite within 40 to 50 seconds you have a bad ignitor.if you leave it alone for a few minutes does the flame ignite?the only other thing it could be is a bad gas valve but most likely it will be the ignitor

Magic Chef oven won't lite. The ignitor glows red hot but no flame. After about 10 minutes of being on I start to smell gas. Not a strong smell but its in the air. I'm thinking gas valve. I did a...


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

No gas flow to oven, glow bar ignites no flame no smell of gas. safety gas safety valve was replaced

With the glow bar going and no gas smell that means you have a good circuit from control to valve and glow bar. For that glow bar to work it must change in resistance. If it is weak it won't change enough resistance to make the gas valve bi-metal open. Also the gas safety valve does not come preset and usually is bottomed out all the way for propane. You must adjust the orifice to aprox the same height as the old one to get the propah gas output for natural gas.

if your old valve did not leak and has continuity between the terminals it is fine. The ignitor/glowbar is weak. If it is dim orange that is usually a way to tell. Bumping the stove makes the bi-metal come on also is a sign of a weak glowbar

Oven heating up slow what can it be ?

you have a lazy ignitor,you should be able to see the ignitor glow or reflecting,if you can't see this you'll have to remove the floor or if there's a bottom draw or panel but anyway when you can see the ignitor start the oven,if it takes longer than 40 seconds to ignite the flame change out the ignitor.

Oven ignitor glows bright red, but oven will not light. No smell of gas.

our ignitor glowed but still was not working right. it has to get to a certain temp before the gas valve will open. try changing it out. fairly inexpensive.

Replaced bad thermostat on Magic Chef model 9112xpb. Ignitor now glows orange but oven still won't start. Does gas valve on bottom of oven need to point up or sideways to start?

Gas shut off valve handles are perpendicular to the gasline when closed and parallel when opened. If you are referring to the appliance regulator behind the stove, the lever should face up or out, as opposed to sideways. This particular lever only shuts gas down to the oven and not the stovetop.

It doesn't turn on - no ignitor glow, suddenly

Hi and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly. Without a model number we are pretty much shooting from the hip here. Having said that it takes all of the following to make the oven burner light:

1. Gas pressure to the gas valve and good solenoids (2 ea)
2. Power to Oven control and selector knob set above min temp
3. Over Temp sensor closed
4. Temp control "thermocouple or thermistor" functional
5. A functioning ignitor

So if you have power to the unit... and we assume the oven control is working.. suspects are:

a. Open ignitor
b. Open flame sensor
c. Open over temp sensor
d. Thermocouple or thermistor (depending on model)
e. Open coil on gas valve

Determining which of the above has failed is performed with an Ohm Meter.

If there is more that we can do for you just respond here.

Thanks for using FixYa.

What amps is the ignitor supposed to pull to engage the gas valve in a magic chef gas oven? The top burner all work fine.

I was once told it was 3 to 4 amps but most techs just replace the ignitor and test the machine for 3 or 4 cycles. if it does not fix the problem then we change the valve. It's hard to put your amp probe in the oven that is going to start shooting out a flame.

Most techs can look at how the ignitor is glowing and tell if it's bad or good by how bright it glows.

As always make sure you unplug the machine befor changing a part.

My stove does not ignite even when glow light is on model 3127wtv

Turn off the gas supply to the range. Remove the oven racks,oven base pan,flame spreader.

Place a clamp on amp meter on one wire of the ignitor and turn the oven on to BAKE. When the ignitor glows it should read more than 3 amps. If it reads 3 amps or less replace the ignitor.

I have a Magic Chef stove Model # 31001SAW. It is made by Maytag.I need to replace the ignitor switch in the oven. The light(flame) comes on but the gas does not ignite. I am assuming that the ignitor...

if the ignitor is not a brite red than it is not putting out the 3.5 amp's neaded to open can check the valve with a continueaty meter.remove the two wire's from the valve and check valve with meter,if valve check's good than ignitor is bad.
