1984 magic chef stove

I have a 1984 magic chef stove. The rotary clock was making a buzzing sound, when I tried to open the control panel and find the plug to unplug it, something sparked and my circut breaker went out. I would like to know how to proceed, I am afraid to turn it back on

SOURCE: Magic Chef Gas Range

Does this oven glows before igniting the gas in the oven? if it does this unit uses a glow bar ignitor in the oven and spark module for the top burners.If it you dont see the spark( or hear the ticking sound the there will be no ignition. Do you smell gas even if there was no ignition happening? If there's gas that eliminate your gas regulator. If it's only one burner with spark but gas won't come on then your gas valve is deffective. But if there's gas and no spark ten it could be poor grounding, wiring, connection or switch or even spark module problem. You to need call your local Appliance service provider on this one. I do not recommend anyone fixing gas related problem if they are not a qualified servicer.

Hi,

It sounds like a bad control. Before replacing the control, make sure it is not in Sabbath Mode, Child lock and if all else fails try resetting the control to factory defaults. If none of these work then replace the clock/control part number 5701M827-60. This part runs about $175.00

I attached a cut out of the service manual, to show how to reset the locks and factory defaults

Magic chef stove model # 6898VRA keeps setting off alarm f1 why?


Hi,

Have you tried to Turn it OFF and then Turn it ON.You could also try Pushing Multiple Buttons, if that could help.

If not, i am afraid that this is a BAD CONTROL BOARD / TOUCH PAD error. You need to replace either or both of these. Once done, it would Fix the Problem.

Some Models do Incorporate Touch Pad and Clock Control as One Part. So, that means you Could have Bad Clock Control.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Magic Chef Oven 3888VRA beeps and shows F-1.


Hi this is indicating a Defective touch pad or clock (ERC).

This simple test will help determine whether the ERC (Electronic Range Control board or Clock) or the touch pad is defective when F1 error code is present. Follow carefully, and with caution.

Note: Some models incorporate the touch pad in to the ERC as a single assembly, in which case this test is not necessary. Simply replace the ERC (Clock).

Warning: Do not preform this test if you feel as if you are not qualified to do so. Contact your local service depot, if needed.

1. Disconnect power to the range (unplug the range power cord or turn the power off to the range at the circuit breaker). It is very important that the power to the range has been disconnected, so please double check before continuing.

2. Gain access inside the control panel.

3. Disconnect the touch pad (also called keypad or membrane switch) ribbon from the ERC.

4. Make sure there are no lose wires, or anything else that may cause a short when power is turned back on. Assemble the control panel back the way it was.

5. Turn the power back on.

6. Wait for at least one hour to see if the F1 code comes back (usually accompanied by a beeping sound).

7. If F1 comes back, replace the ERC. If it does not, replace the touch pad.

UNPLUG...Then you need to open the control panel and there is a ribbon cable you remove from the main control board then plug the unit back in to see if the F1 is gone if so you need to replace the Touch pad

Magic chef stove


If the oven is working but the control does not light up then you will have to replace the control.  If the oven doesn't work then will have to check and see if you have power to the control.  If power is there then the control is bad.
