Question about Magic Chef CGR3742 Gas Kitchen Range

1 Answer

Magic chef gas range; oven takes about an hour or so to preheat.

It seems that the gas is not getting through properly. Stovetop works great but oven takes an hour or so to preheat. Sometimes it's an hour and a half to just get it to 350 degrees. I have used the self-cleaning function twice in the past 2 weeks thinking maybe it needs cleaning but nothing has changed. Very frustrating!. Any help would be appreciated. Troubleshooting problems in book does not address this problem.

Most common issue, and it sounds like what your experiencing here, is a faulty ignitor, replace the bake ignitor ( located under teh oven floor, attached to the burner bar)

You need to replace the touchpad. I'm just getting ready to replace mine for the second time in 14 years. A bit pricey but not a hard repair to make.
An appliance repairman told me that it's possible to peel the old pad off and carefully fish the connecting wire out to the point where it plugs together. This would save removing the burners and the stovetop I'm going to give it a try when mine arrives
