Dont Mess with it if you bought it second hand and Gas is a bad thing.. It may have been an LP/ (Liquified Petroleum) gas unit prior and now its hooked to a lower Natural Gas pressure home system or vise -versa. Turn it off and call a local contractor please. "PLEASE" Shut the Gas valve off until you do so..

(Bad things can happen if you try to do this Modification yourself)..

Just food for thought..

Our MAGIC CHEF gas range has a pilot light that comes on, the ignitor comes on, but the oven does not work heat. Any ideas would be appreciated.


First off, decide which you have, a pilot lite or an igniter coil. In electronic controlled units, when the oven won't light, as long as there's gas available, 98% of the time the igniter is bad, even though the old one may glow and seem to be very bright, it could have a small hairline crack in the ceramic, which would not allow the proper amount of electrical current to travel to the gas oven safety valve, which would then make it open and release the gas. A new igniter works almost every time.

Hotpoint gas stove. burners work, oven and broiler do not.


Probably the safety valve. This unit broils and bakes off the same gas burner. A spark ignitor lights the pilot and this save gas because no standing pilot is needed. It takes a few minutes for the thermocouple bimetal combo to release the gas. When the temp gets to the desired rate then the bulb on the oven control closes off the flow of gas. To recap: The flow of gas comes from a regulator along a rail which supplys the gas to the top burners and the oven control. older models had pilot light tubing going down to the oven and to the top burners. This newer style uses a spark module to light off the top burners and the oven. So when yall turn the the oven on the spark ignitor lights the pilot first and then after the mercury bulf thermocouple heats up the bimetal inside the valve opens allowing gas to flow out to the pilot and ignite the gas burner. the temp rises and the mercury bulb oven control expands closing off the flow but not the gas safety valve. I would suspect the safety valve on this one.

I have a Tappan gas stove that takes forever to heat up (oven) and I smell gas before it starts to heat. Help?


Hello,
Thanks for answering my questions. It sounds to me like your oven's safety valve is going bad. There have been many times when I am at a customer's house and it has been a while since they used the oven, and it seems to take forever to light the oven. Just tapping the oven safety valve with a wrench or handle of a screw driver is all that's needed to open the valve and light the burner. As long as your oven's igniter glow bar is lighting, (glowing orange or sparking), then the oven safety valve is your problem. It is a silver rectangular valve in the far back bottom of the oven with the orifice on top of it and the burner tube coming down over the orifice. Try tapping it and see if that works. Otherwise, just have it replaced. Douglas

Dynasty oven fails to get enough gas to light.


I think you are talking about the oven safety valve or thermal valve. before you change you oven safety valve, I would check the Amperage on the oven ignitor first, install AMP meter on one of the ignitor wire, it should draw above 3AMPs, if not then you have problem with the oven ignitor and not the safety valve. we hardly change the safety valve, I'll try to change the ignitor first. Have fun.

Lighting an old Frigidaire gas oven


Sounds as though the pilot light in your oven went out. On the inside of the oven there should be a small hole about the size of a 50cent piece on the floor of the oven. Turn on the gas for the oven, light a matchstick or rolled up piece of paper, stick it into that hole and it should light, monitor the oven for 30 seconds to see if it starts to heat. SAFETY 1st!

THE OVEN WILL NOT HEAT


How old is the unit? Sometimes the igniter can glow but if it isn't drawing the right amount of power to open the gas valve then that is the safety that is built into the oven... So unless the power requirement is meant gas valve will not light. Even though the hot surface igniter is glowing red hot. chances are the igniter is bad. Let me know what turns up. ken

I have a 1948 Magic chef gas oven.Model # 8620. The gas was turned off at my home and the pilot light on the oven went out. The gas is now on and I need to relight the pilot light. I am not sure on the ove...


You did say 1948, as in 60 year old range?
Well, gas ranges did not have fancy safety valves or things like that back then. Most likely when you turn on the gas, a small amount of gas begins escaping at the pilot orifice. Then use a long handled lighter to put a flame there. Pilot should light right away.

Oven won't work


This could be a defective ignitor (glow bar) or gas valve (safety valve). If you gently tap the safety valve and it lights up very likely ingnitor problem

Oven won't light


Tip - do not change the safety valve first even if the ignitor seem "ok" if you gently tap the safety valve and the flame comes on initially but fails to come on after awhile after each"tapping" - the ignitor is the most likely culprit
