    Yes, we aren't using it. Gas makes me nervous but thank you for the warning.



    I appreciate the response as well but I think I'll just call in a service to do it so I don't screw it up.



    Thanks!

    My Magic Chef 31GA-3KX gas stove also started giving off strong gas fume odours after starting the burners and or oven. Does not appear to have any blockages or buildup around the burners though - could this be a faulty pressure regulator valve?

STOP USING THE OVEN IMMEDIATELY!!! You are not getting enough air to the burners to burn all the fuel. Not only will you have an explosion hazard, you'll have a carbon monoxide hazard either of which will KILL YOU. Read all of the info below before you begin.

You need to clean all the burners and inlets thoroughly. You probably used the oven for a lot of broiling of meats or it is quite old. The deposits are clogging the tubes which gauge the amount of air entering the burners or the burner holes themselves. The burner tubes are generally removable by removing one screw and giggling the units clear. Before taking anything apart, note carefully the positions of any mix plates and scribe small marks between the two surfaces. Use a heavy duty cleaner or WD-40 to loosen grime. Don't use abrasives like Comet. Then wash in mild detergent with hot water and dry. Be sure all burner openings are clear. After assembly, note the color of the flames. They should be about 90% blue along their length from the burner head. If they are not, you didn't finish the job cleanly or you have another problem. If the burners are old, rusty or have irregularly shaped flame holes, replace them.

Magic Chef Oven won't light


Your oven bake ignitor is becoming defective. Even though it is glowing, the resistance is not great enough to "pop" the gas valve open and is slowly seeping gas into the oven cavity. With a strong ignitor, the oven should light within 30-45 seconds. Because this is a gas oven, I DO NOT RECOMMEND FIXING IT YOURSELF. Call an experienced technician.
