Re: -F1-

F1 for Magic Chef means there is a problem with the control board or the touch pad to the board.  I would need the entire model # on sticker on the oven to see what parts are on this one.  If the touch pad is separate it will have a ribbon that goes from it to the board.  Unplug that ribbon, if the code goes away then the touchpad is the problem.  If the code stays with the ribbon unplugged then the control board is bad.  Make sure power is off to unit when touching anything!

Cant find model no.

You can generally found the model number for a cooktop in a few places. Sometimes the model number is faded or rubbed out. The first place I would check is directly on the bottom of the cooktop that is usually were you will find the model and serial number. Secondly, check on the units electrical box many times the label is to the right or left hand side. Lastly, some cooktops let you lift up the top to clean underneath and you can find the label somewhere around the edges.

Hope that was helpful.
Happy Holidays!

Magic chef oven: lights hard but when lit comes up to or near temp sputters and will not come back on???

The problem is usually the igniter not reaching the correct amp draw .When the igniter does not reach the correct amp draw it may allow the gas valve to partially open or not open at all. The igniters are inexpensive and easy to replace. There is a video at this will walk you thru the correct procedure for performing this test. It may be a different model but the testing will be the same.You can also enter your model # for diagrams and illustrations of your specific model. Not all models are available. All parts come with installation instructions.

your technical support is horrible after being left on hold for so long and being told to pay 10.00 just to ask a question is poor business.

My Magig Chef Glass Rangetop

This part can cost over $400. It is usually not worth fixing. NEVER operate the stove with a cracked top. This is tempered glass and it can just explode! It is also a dangerous electrical issue. Liquid can drip down through the crack and contact the live open element.
