Question about Ovens
My Magic Chef oven won't light. Lately it has taken much longer to turn on (as long as 4-5 minutes) but I didn't think anything of it. Today it wouldn't light at all but filled the kitchen with gas. Tried it one more time: saw a yellowish light towards the back of the oven, but again, smelled gas & turned it off. My husband is fairly handy with fixing things & we were wondering if this is something we can fix or if we need a service call.
Your oven bake ignitor is becoming defective. Even though it is glowing, the resistance is not great enough to "pop" the gas valve open and is slowly seeping gas into the oven cavity. With a strong ignitor, the oven should light within 30-45 seconds. Because this is a gas oven, I DO NOT RECOMMEND FIXING IT YOURSELF. Call an experienced technician.
