Question about Magic Chef CPL1100AD Gas Kitchen Range

Pilot lit, ignitor glowing, oven will not light

Model# CPL1100ADW

I can't find a company that sells the ignitor. They all tell me there is no ignitor on this model, but I physically removed it from the pilot burner assembly.

Can anyone help me find an ignitor for a Magic Chef 20" Free Standing Range, that is lit with an ignitor that runs from the pilot burner, to the oven valve?

    Thank you for the help. I have mistaken the thermocouple for the ignitor. The pilot burner assembly seems to be working fine. The pilot stays lit, at the appropriate height, and when I turn the oven thermostat knob on, the pilot enlarges to warm the thermocouple.

    The thermocouple starts to glow, like it does on my other ovens of the same model, and this is when the gas is usually released into the baking burner, and is ignited by the pilot light, but this step does not happen.

    Does this sound like the pilot burner is bad, or the oven valve (this is a series ten, not eleven which has a "safety valve")?

A pilot light and a ignitor do the same thing. no unit would have both.

Perhaps you are confusing the thermo-coupling for an ignitor. An ignitor (glow plug style) is ceramic with a conductive coating on the end powered by electricity supplied by two high temperature coated wires that connect to the oven controller.

A replaceable thermo-couple looks like a copper tube with a elongated bulb at one end and a fitting at the other. The bulb is placed in the pilot flame and the fitting screws into the gas valve.

I am looking at a exploded diagram for the model number you listed. The unit uses a "safety valve" with the thermo-couple incorporated into it. To see the exploded view, click here If
you are asked for a model #, use CPL1100ADW. In section 2, gas controls, Diagram location 17 is the safety valve. Click on the part photo for a better view of the valve.

If you have any questions, let me know. Hope this gets your unit up and running again.

Please take the time to give this solution a fix ya rating,

    Based purely on economics, I would first replace the thermo-couple. If that does not repair the unit, the only thing left is the valve.

When I turn it on, the heating element glows, but there doesn't seem to be any gas flowing through. I checked the valve, and it's open. Does this oven have a pilot light that needs to be lit?


The glow you see is actually the ignitor, it has taken the place of the out-dated pilot light. It is likely that your ignitor is partially burnt out and the safety valve is not opening. A good bake ignitor draws just over 3 amps and the safety valve will not open until it reads this 3 amp draw.

If the glow you see is a dull orange, it is likely that the ignitor is bad.

My TGG220TQ's oven is not working. Both of the range pilot lights are lit, when I turn the dial for the oven, no gas comes out and obviously the oven doesn't heat up.


Looked up your model. You have silicone carbide ignition. If you see the ignitor glowing but the gas will not ignite chances are the ignitor is weak, I must pull 3.5 amps or better to get the safety bi-metal inside the valve to open. This is your oven safety feature.

My Magic Chef model 9112XUB wall oven will not light. It has power and gas but will not ignite.What can I do to fix it myself?


If this model has electronic ignition, you can open up the broiler door , turn on the oven, and look to the rear of the broiler...there should be a sort of glow plug getting reddish/orange. If not, the oven won't light and you will need to obtain an ignitor for the oven. these are available through appliance parts distributors such as Bell Parts Suppy. If it is a standing pilot model, then first check to see if the pilot is lit...if it's not lit try lighting...if it won't stay lit, then the thermocouple is probably bad and will need to be replaced

Getting to the Pilot


Your model JGBP28DED2WH uses spark ignition on the stove top burners, and a glow bar ignitor, part number WB2X9154 for the oven and broiler. To get to the bake ignitor if oven will not light: Take the racks out of the oven. Remove oven floor by removing two screws at back of oven floor and lifting floor. Remove the square metal flame spreader to get to the burner / ignitor assembly. (note: The ignitor may still glow when you try it, but usually is still the problem)

The JGRP17 (not a full model number) does not have a pilot light. It uses glow bar ignitors. Watch the burner at the top of your oven when you turn on broil. After a short time the glow bar ignitor begins to glow, and a short time after that the broiler burner should ignite. The same thing should happen with the oven burner under the floor of the oven when you attempt to bake. If the igniter does not glow, or glows and burner does not light, replace ignitor. (looks like part # WB2X9154)

Lighting pilot of GE gas stove


According to the model number you supplied it looks like your oven use a glow bar ignitor not a pilot light. In that case there is no place to hold a fire. what happens with these when you turn the oven on 120 volts goes to the ignitor causing it to heat up ,the amp draw across the ignitor causes the gas safety valve to open, and then lights the gas. So if you turn your oven on you should see a bright red glow if not probably the the ignitor, to check it you would have to verify you actually have power going to it. If the ignitor glows but the gas valve does not open you will still need to replace the ignitor has to pull about 3.2 amps across ignitor to open safety valve. Your broil burner works the same way. And most of the ovens the floor of the oven comes out to allow easier acess to the ignitor. also if you have to change the ignitor put just a dab of dish detergent on the screws to help from stripping them

Sister, there is no pilot light on this model. Sounds like you have a bad ignitor, however the F7 code shows as a bad touch pad membrane. d7 must represent how many times this fault occured, although Im not finding anything that shows a d7 code. Try resetting the board by killing power to the range for about a minute. After turning the power back on press the COOKING TIME, DELAY START AND NUMBER 8 PADS ALL TOGETHER. The words test should be displayed. Now you are going to energize the bake circuit; press the bake and start, you should hear a click, this is the bake relay on the board. By holding the start button in you are energizing the ignitor (glow bar) in the oven. If you do not hear the click, suspect the control board. If you do hear the click and the ignitor is not glowing, you have a bad ignitor. Have someone with you to verify the ignitor is glowing when you are holding the start button in. To exit the test, just push CLEAR/OFF key pad. Catriver...post back
