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.

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

Oven is not working - I think the pilot is out but how do I light it?

HI, This oven has an electric ignitor not a pilot. Turn the oven on and look inside the oven. If you see an orange glow, the flame should light.
If there is a glow and no flame, the ignoitor should be changed.
If you remove the floor panel in the oven, you can see the ignitor and test it to see if it is getting 120V.
If it is getting voltage but not glowing, the ignitor will need changed.
I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist you further

Oven doesn't work but the pilot light is on

Hi, Does this have a standing pilot or is it electrinc start? If it is electronic start, and the ignitor glows but you get no flame, you will need to change the ignitor. Even tho it glows, it is to weak to open up the gas valve.
If you find that you need an ignitor, I can give you my web site and you could order the ignitor from me. I have very competative prices.

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)

Magic chef propane oven. recreation vehicle application

you need to check the amp draw on the ignitor.. if it is between 3.5 -5.2 amps your gas valve is bad..if not the ignitor is bad..YES theignitor can glow and still be bad due to lack of amp draw to open the valve..check that and let me know

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. back
