Question about Maytag MGR6772 Gemini Gas Kitchen Range

1 Answer

Inacurate temp I have a magic chef oven model 6948vra. the display temp. seems to be inacurate by a large amount as it takes forever to cook anything. When preheating for example to 450 deg. the temp. rises very quickly and reaches what the temp. indicator says is 450 degress but it is obvious due to cooking times and feel that it is not reaching the corect temp. I have replaced the oven temp. sensor with a new one.

Re: inacurate temp

The follow suggestions apply if you are at sea level, or a bit above. If you are in the mountains, you'll have to compensate for altitude issues. You need an accurate thermometer to be spot on. One way is to use an electronic thermometer. Another is to set the oven to 217 degrees, insert a small pan of water into the oven, with a metal tray or pie tin on a lower rack to catch spills and see if it eventually boils. If the water didn't boil, you can adjust the temperature upward in  5 degree steps (see your owner's manual for details). If you've lost your manual, you may be able to go on-line and get a pdf copy of your manual.If the water does boil, you know your oven is accurate within 5 degrees. You can then proceed to re-do the experiment at 212 degrees, if you wish. Then you may use the data to adjust the oven temperature.

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......

Magic Chef Gas Oven - Heats up slowly and has intermittent gas smell

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.
