Question about Imperial IR-6-C Elite Gas Kitchen Range

1 Answer

How do I turn my oven on!

I moved into a new home this week, and have a beautiful 6 burner Imperial gas range. I believe the model number is IR-6-C. Anyways, I don't know how to turn the darn thing on! We've used the burners by lighting them with a match but can't find the pilot to use the oven or start the burners automatically. Please help us locate the pilot light on this thing!

The oven pilot will need to be lit, On the bottom there is the oven safety valve, it has a red button on it, you must depress the button and hold it with the pilot lit for 60 seconds, when you release the button the pilot should stay lit and the oven will be ready for operation using the thermostat (knob). Please note: if the oven has set unused for some time you may need to hold the red button for a long time to bleed the air out of the lines. The pilots for the top burners are actually right beside each burner. You may need to turn these pilots on, they are controlled by small valves (small brass screws on the gas manifold where the gas valves and knobs are located, look between the knobs). These small screws/valves will open the gas flow to the pilots when turned counter clockwise. If you open these valves and the pilots still do not work, they will need to be replaced. Hope this helps

Do you push a red button to light the pilot ? Does the pilot stay on after you hold the button for 30 seconds ? Need more information. Could be the safety... could be the thermocouple....?

The oven will not light when turned on.


When the bake igniter becomes weak or burns out, your oven will not bake. The bake igniter is usually mounted on the oven burner. It's about 1 inch by 4-8 inches (depending on the model), and comes in round or flat styles. If you don't see the igniter glow at all, it's probably burned out. Replace the igniter if found defective. Note: one of the exceptions could be that your oven is set to automatic mode instead of manual. If this is the case, set your oven to manual mode and check again.

If the bake igniter glows red and not bright yellow or white, it is probably because it is too weak. When this happens, the safety valve will not let the gas out into the oven burner. A weak igniter must be replaced.

A faulty igniter is probably the most common cause, however there are others:

-- defective thermostat
-- defective selector switch
-- defective gas safety valve
-- defective gas valve coils

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.

Kenmore Gas Range/Freestanding/ Electronic Ignition


I have an electronic ignition Kenmore Gas Range. The Model Number is 790.78573407.

Am getting the error code F93 in the oven control panel. The manual says the likely cause is "Maximum oven door lock time exceeded". When I plug the oven the "door lock light" flashes and then the "F93" error code flashes. Am not able to use the bake or broil.
