Magic Chef (Maytag) CGS3760ADW - Oven "popping" long time to heat up

From the sounds of it, the gas is turning on and off, heats for a while and then shuts off, takes a long time to heat up. burners are fine. trying to narrow this down. does this sound like the oven valve, pressure regulator, or a thermostat issue?

any idea of where I can find a schematic for this oven? it's not in the manuals online a whirlpool. thanks!

It could be air starvation or a temp senser fault.

I have a Maytag (Magic Chef) gas oven model CGR3730ADH. The oven will not heat up. The ignitor will glow/heat up but there does not appear to be any gas flow. The top burners work normally. After...

First of all, thank you for all your information. A rule I live by, even if an ignitor glows does not mean it works. The ignitor works on the flow of electricity through it not how bright it glows. If you can use a amperage meter, hook on one of the two wire to the ignitor directly. You need 3.2 to 3.6 amps to open the safety valve. If lower than 2.6 amps, it will not allow gas to enter the burner. If you have no clue what I am asking you to do, you can purchase and replace the ignitor and life will be better. P# 12400035. Its not difficult to change, the screws holding the ignitor in place sometimes strip out, when you get them off, you can replace them if needed.
Good Luck

Range won't heat up

it is a glow coil , thermocouples are on units with a free standing pilot that you have to light, if you have a range like this you may need a thermocouple if not a free standing pilot you have a electronic gas iginition system that uses a glow coil, you turn on over setting and oven glows orange then iginites if this is what you have you need new glow coil, easy to repalce

Magic chef oven/stove top range not staying hot

Hi, It very well could be the ignitor. Sometimes they work at first and then will not open the gas valve later in cycle. You can set the oven to heat and watch the ignitor. If it glows and the gas will not ignite in 30 to 45 seconds, the igniter is getting weak. I jope this helps.
Please let me know if I can assit you further.

Old Magic Chef Gas Oven won't light

sounding like thermostat isn't working. If you could ohm out the t-stat should be closed when you call for heat. If that passes the test then only thing it could be is the gas valve.
