Magic chef oven wont turn on

I have a magic chef oven that will not turn on. The burners on the stove will light, but the oven wont turn on. There is no gas coming from the oven and there is no little light in the back. Is this something I can fix myself?

    No there was no gas smell. However there was a poping sound of something trying to turn on, but the broiler never came on.

Hello Barbara,

Is the ignitor you need for the oven, stove top surface burners. If for the oven is it about a inch or so in round diameter and about 4-6 inches long with 2 wires to it and glows when oven is turned on?
the very old ignitors for the oven was a square/rectangle glow plug about a inch or so square

Which best describes the one you need?

How do i light a old magic chef stove

If the stove is the one that I think that it is... you will have to lift the cover and then between the burners there will be a small orifice that you light... the pilot light will then light the burners when the gas is turned on to them...
