Oven won't light

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......

Maybe you should light a bonfire in the woods and cook your ham that way. XP

We have a Magic Chef gas oven (model # CPL1100BDW) without electronic ignition. The oven isn't working. The oven pilot is out, can't get it to light, and the oven will not light - (obviously)....


Hello & Welcome to FixYa
If the pilot is clean and still won't light then the problem is with the safety valve that won't open and so needs replacement. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

I have a magic chef oven model # 61S04PAW. the


Electric gas igniters sometimes get stuck in one position causing a clicking sound. The clicking sound that you hear is the electric arc that is pulsing from the igniter conductor (wire) to ground (the gas burner). It receives power from the electrical outlet that the stove is plugged into.
Residue from food and sometimes cleaning products may be preventing the igniter from producing a spark (Arc) to the base of the burner. This is a common problem that occurs when the stove has been cleaned or food is allowed to build up. Make sure that the igniter and the burner base are clean and dry. This will help with proper operation. Oven cleaner and a small tooth brush may be used to accomplish this. Another problem with ignition may occur if you have too little (touching) or too much space between the igniter and the base of the burner; it will prevent the burner from igniting. You should only have a little more space than the thickness of a nickel between the burner base and the igniter. A good “blue” arc from the igniter to the burner base is optimal. If this doesn’t work, you may need to replace the electric igniter module. Good luck.

Magic chef oven pilot light out


Hi, If the oven has a standing pilot too, Open the bottom door and locate the main burner. Follow the burner toward the rear of the oven and there will be a flame switch attatched to the burner. Hold the flame near the flame switch and the gas should ignite.
Some model do not have a standing pilot in the oven. Please get me your model number off the label located around the opening of the lower door so I can look this up and instruct you better.

Oven won't light


you should have an igniter set up in the oven follow the the front of the burner to the end (back) you should see the igniter follow the wires from the igniter to the elec- safety valve unplug those two wires and tape them together make sure stove is unplugged before you start his process. now plug in oven does igniter light if yes safety valve is bad if no unplug oven from outlet unwrap tapped wires and reinstall them where they came from it would help if you had a ohm meter cut th wires coming out of the igniter not too short in case you have to reconnect them but you will need ceramic wire nuts the do not melt after you cut the wires from the igniter check for continuity @ the igniter no continuity means bad igniter ,i doubt the thermostat is bad but we can troubleshoot it tommorrow if these steps dont work
