Question about Magic Chef CGS3760 Gas Kitchen Range
I have a Magic Chef stand alone oven, Model # 31213wav...all the burners work fine as did the oven until it just went out while cooking a ham. Now it won't light. It doesn't even try. Someone told me it may be the thermocouple but I don't even see a reference for it on the numerous web sites I've visited. Any ideas on how to troubleshoot the problem by process of elimination? Thank you.

My mother also has a magic chef oven and she was not getting the temp to rise and gas smell sometimes. The unit uses a hot surface ignition. The HFC has a resistance of 120 ohms. If you use a multimeter and it jumps around or is infinite the HFC is bad. A cheap fix is to swap it with the one up above, from the Broiler. Most units use the same HFC (hot surface ignitor) for the oven and Broiler so are interchangable. Just remember Now YOU have an oven and NO broiler ; but who uses the broiler anyway!

I also have a Magic Chef model 31213WAV and the thing inside the oven glows but the gas doesn't come on for the flame. I was told I need an "igniter" which for this oven is Maytag part number 12400035.
On the Web they sell for from around $50 to around $70.

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......
