Question about Magic Chef CER3740 Electric Kitchen Range

1 Answer

My oven takes 45 minutes to get to 350 degrees

My Magic Chef oven will take a very long time to heat up to a low temp. When I make cookies, the oven will take at least 45 minutes to heat up to the required amount. Does anyone know why it takes so long or does anyone have the same problem?

    It came with the house which is about 10 years old. I'm assuming it's the original stove but can't be sure. Will check with my neighbors.

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/stove top range not staying hot


Hi, It very well could be the ignitor. Sometimes they work at first and then will not open the gas valve later in cycle. You can set the oven to heat and watch the ignitor. If it glows and the gas will not ignite in 30 to 45 seconds, the igniter is getting weak. I jope this helps.
Please let me know if I can assit you further.

Oven does not heat up


I had the same problem with my magic cheff oven. I had to set the temp at 400 - 500 degrees to get to get an actual oven temp of about 250 degrees. The oven temp sensor checked ok with an ohm meter. Should be around 1100 ohms at room temp. I work in the electronics industry and know capacitors go out of range and dry out with heat and over time so I replaced the 3 or 4 electrolitic capacitors on the timer board. Cost me about $6.00 at Radio Shack and now my oven temp is right on the money. I realize not everyone may want to do this but it worked for me. Better than the $200.00 for a new oven timer control board. I have also found a company's website that fixes these boards for about $89.00 ApplianceTimers.com

Pilot light out/will not go above 350


Sounds like the thermostat controlling the gas valve in the oven is not working, I’m trying to find if the oven igniter is electric, but believe the igniter is electric. If it does light then not regulate the temp above 350 degrees, I am convinced the thermostat control is bad.
