Magic Chef stove model #3121WTW Oven/broiler won't light

The oven and broiler had been working. Last used the oven Thanksgiving. Now the oven/broiler won't light. The burners are electric igntion. I don't know about the oven/broiler. The stove came with the apartment and I have never had a problem. We have lived here for a year. Temperature is about 25-50 degrees off but always worked and cooked fine. Can you help?

    I have a Magic Chef Model 64HN - 4TKVW. The oven and broiler had quit working, so I ordered, got & replaced the oven broiler. Other than not providing a short wire length in the existing oven, it wasn't terribly difficult and all worked well (oven & broiler) ... a few times. Then, the same thing happened. I thought maybe the ceramic wire nuts had come loose (they also don't "stick" to the wire very well) but after checking them, nothing still not heat. If one ignitor (this time the broiler's) isn't working, would that be the the problem? This oven has never had heavy use.

SOURCE: Replacement Parts For Vintage Magic Chef stove

You probably have a 1940's model of Magic Chef. Check for the model number under the lid of the cook top on the upper right hand side of the stove. It should have the model number and the serial number, too. You will need both. The Old Applicance Club run by Jack Santoro is the place to go along with a site called "Antique gas stoves"in Georgia. Good luck with the world of vintage stoves.

I dont know how to light the polit light for the oven .but the stove works


The bottom of the oven should come out. Then the flame spreader should come off with a couple of screws. The pilot it located in the rear of the over and if the over has a broiler use the same instruction for the top of the oven.

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.

Oven won't light


Hey im sorry to hear that...
I fix many ovens., however not really familiar to yours...
However instead of searching for thermostat, try looking for either thermo-couple, falme flaiure device or falme safety device these are the three main termonologies used....

Hope this helps......

Im sorry cant provide you with a full on solution ... but my guess is that your is probably a thermocouple......
