Question about Magic Chef 9122 Gas Single Oven

Open Question

Buzzing noise at the self cleaning dial for a wall oven.

I had some work done on my house while I was away and the Electrician turned off the power to the house. After turning it back on the self cleaner dials for setting the time are making noise and he disconneded the wires to make it stop. Has anyone ever experienced this? I have an old Magic Chef Wall Oven model # 996-4CX that works absolutely fine and so did the self cleaner until the powered off. It is just at the knobs for the self cleaner. It is a buzzing like the timer is done. Can anyone give me any suggestions?
Also, the analog clock hasn't worked in forever. Does anyone know if it is worth repairing?
Thanks, Cathy

SOURCE: Old Magic Chef Gas Oven won't light

sounding like thermostat isn't working. If you could ohm out the t-stat should be closed when you call for heat. If that passes the test then only thing it could be is the gas valve.

I just had a model 976-4CX put in...I have no manual...I'm trying to find one. I thought I had a problem with the element, dial or thermostat. The bottom worked, but the top stopped working. There are 2 timers with dials next to the clock labeled Start and Stop, and Push for Manual. Come to find out my problem was solved by adjusting the Start and Stop dials and/or pushing in for manual!?!
If I had a manual I'd know how these timers worked.

You can download it here but you need the right model #.
As for the temp adjust it is best if you get an repair man out to do that.
Good Luck

The f1 problem is a losing battle. If the oven is otherwise working fine, save your money and just disconnect (ie, with wire snips) the buzzer alarm inside the controller. You'll still be seeing f1 most of the time when you are not using the oven, but so what? I performed this "fix" several years ago and haven't regretted it.

Hi, most likely that Power outage has damaged the main controller board, it is not so much the outage as the reconnection of the power after an outage, you see when this occurs, when the power is restored usually everything is still ON, then when reconnected, the "Inrush" current can be enormous, and it damages the sensitive electronics, frequently.
Most likely the controller and or the thermostat has failed, another candidate is the thermistor temperature sensor.
To effect a repair one MUST obtain a service manual, this has all the circuits and troubleshooting steps and parts numbers too, it is a must have. They can be obtained from the manufactures website below.

Whenever there is an outage one must race around and turn off, and withdraw every power point and appliance to stop this from occurring. reconnect and turn them back on when all is well again.

This may indeed be a job for a professional, in this case please contact magic Chef, and ask for a referral to an authorised repairer, when they call ask for a 'Quote" for the repair, before allowing any repair work to be done.

I have a wall oven that is 15 years old and it's making a loud noise, after it's turned off. This has never happened before.

Don't burn your house down! Get a new wall oven. FYI Sears no longer sells Whirlpool.

When I turn on the self cleaning oven, it makes a loud buzzing noise. Is this normal? If not, what needs to be fixed and how do I do it?

The buzzing sound comes from the relays located on the control board. Remember, the oven gets very hot during self clean, so the control works at full speed to get all the elements working.

Hello Gillian, thank you for your post!

Let's try reprogramming your wall oven by either unplugging it or flipping the circuit breaker off. It is necessary to wait roughly ten minutes and then turn your wall oven on. Select an option and confirmed that the door is securely latch. If the issue persists, then the temperature may have tripped the internal sensor of your wall oven and needs to be reset. This usually has to be done by a professional since the back panel needs to be taken off and the power reset inside. Also, your wall oven may possibly have a communication problem with the EOC (Electronic Oven Control). Personally, I would recommend contacting a professional for a further evaluation.

Best regards, Chris!

My frigidaire gallery series oven made a popping noise while heating up dinner in oven and now the whole oven is not working

Hello jnjpelli - Try resetting the unit by unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker off. Wait approximately ten minutes and restart the unit. If the oven does not turned on, then more than likely there seems to be a power supply issue. Also try checking the breaker and the power connections located on the back of the range. If any of these suggestions prove to be ineffective, connect with a professional to accurately pinpoint any potentially more serious issues

I turned on the cleaning switch for my self cleaning wall oven and now it seems to be finished but mthe door lock is still on and the oven keeps making a buzzing noise what do I do?

If the lock does not open after the oven has cooled down, then try this: First, unplug the range or shut off the circuit breaker for ten minutes. Plug the range back in or turn on the circuit breaker. Set the clock and try moving the door lock lever or opening the door. Next, set the self-clean cycle again and only allow it to work for twenty minutes. Cancel the self-clean cycle and allow the oven to cool. Gently try moving the door lock lever or opening the door
