Question about Magic Chef 31000 Gas Kitchen Range

1 Answer

Is my oven worth fixing? The utility person turned off the gas because he said, gas was leaking from the knob around the oven.

I purchased it brank new about 20 years ago or so. Should I just go on and purchase a new range, as was suggested?

SOURCE: majic chef gas range not sure of model #

You need to replace the oven igniter. It's what you see glowing. They grow weak with age. TURN POWER OFF before servicing this. The numbers can often be found behind drawer at lower front, on oven frame, on left or right near bottom.
Bring model # with you. It should be a standard magic chef igniter. Think it's 12400035.
Remove oven floor to access igniter. It's held on by 2 screws in side of burner. Put some dishwashing detergent on them before trying to remove them. Otherwise they might strip out. The new igniter may plug right in or you may have to cut wires and attach with enclosed wire nuts. The 2 wires to it can be attached either way.

UNPLUG...Then you need to open the control panel and there is a ribbon cable you remove from the main control board then plug the unit back in to see if the F1 is gone if so you need to replace the Touch pad

How do I fix the broken oven knob on my GE XL44 oven?


First you need to check the value body (around the value stem) for leaks.. you can use soapy water, your nose for smell...if you suspect a gas leak... turn the gas off to the appliance (located behind the stove) and call your gas supplier or a service tech...
You can use a thin pair of needle nose plyers to hold the stem.. or an easier way is to cut a playing card in half, poke a hole in the middle of it so it will slide over the stem... cut a line for the edge of the card to the hole so you'll be able to pull the card out from under the installed knob...

My oven wont turn off from the knob it keeps turning


You didn't say whether you have a gas or electric oven, or oven & stove. I'll assume you have a stove, just to cover all bases.

First, you should shut down the oven: a gas stove will have a valve on the gas line behind the stove. The valve will either have a red handle or a flat stem that usually has a hole in it. Turn either valve 1/4 turn to shut off gas, use a wrench on the flat stem. An electric stove should be shut off by flipping off the double circuit breaker for it in your electric panel. Do not unplug an electric stove when it is on; this can damage the plug &/or electrocute you.

Most likely the inside of the knob has stripped out. Look at the knob for a hole that has a setscrew in it: a small allen wrench or screwdriver will loosen the setscrew, most knobs don't have them and will pull off. Be careful to use even pressure on two sides of the knob; if you can't pull it off, use two butter knives or flat screw drivers to pry it up enough to get a grip on it.

Look at the center stem on the back of the knob, it will likely be cracked or stripped. Some stems have a D-shaped metal insert that strips out inside the plastic stem. If you have one, pull off a burner knob and compare the stems in the back, if they are the same size, put the burner knob on the shaft for the oven control, and use that knob to turn the oven control off.

If the burner knob won't fit, use your fingers or a pair of pliers (gently) to turn off the oven control shaft. If the shaft stops normally, you can turn the stove back on using either the gas valve or the circuit breaker. If you have a gas stove that doesn't have electric ignition (a clicking noise when you turn on a burner) you may need to re-light the pilots for the burners. Lift the covers off the burners to re-light the pilots.

If you have succeeded in turning off the oven, you need a new knob -- you can get one at an appliance parts store or maybe a hardware store. If the oven control did not turn off normally, I would leave the oven/stove turned off: the control itself will need to be replaced by a qualified repair person.

GAS OVEN KNOB STUCK


The valve is 'seized'. Grease gets into them and over time turns acidic corroding the valve from the inside out. Replace the valve. Any appliance parts seller can get it for you. Turn off the gas before starting repairs!

Gas Range Oven Knob Area Gas Leak


The only two things you can do are pull the core of the oven thermostat and re-grease it, but that could throw your temperature calibration way off. The other is to replace the thermostat. Either way, a calibration is probably a good idea.

My GE XL44 Gas Range (Model JGBP34 GEP 1A) control


If you like the stove and it in good shape otherwise, have it fixed. The parts are still available. The stove in good used condition (without leak) is probably worth $75.00. May cost that much to repair it. Will cost approximately $450.00 to replace it with equal range. If it's a standing pilot model (no electricity needed) they are unavailable and your new range will require power to use the oven. Hope this helps.

Will the flame go out if you turn the control knob to the off position?

Sometimes gas cooking control knobs have two seperate types of control in the one knob. One control turn the gas on or off, one adjusts the variable quantity of gas allowed through a gap to your flame jets. Some control knobs can get gummed up and stick a little. The can be fixed by carefully taking apart the control knob, taking note of EXACTLY how everything goes back together and cleaning any gummed up bits. Then reassemble the knob and drizzle soapy water over the control to test for leaks. A leaky gas join blows bubbles and makes noise. Let me know if this fixes the problem.

Oven wont come obut igniter works


Yes, it could be the knob or the oven control.

If the knob fits tightly to the control, and turns the stem of the control, then I would be suspect of the control. But if the knob fits loosely, I would be suspect of the knob.
