Change the bottom ignighter just because it glowes doesn't mean its getting hot enough to open the safety valve you should see two screws at the bottom of the floor of the oven cavity after removing the racks remove those and remove the floor then you will see a deflector shield remove that to get access to the ignighter take out the two screws and install the new ignightor and reassemble

I have a magic chef oven that will not iginite, the electric ignitor will not come on for the oven but the one for the broiler will, what causes this??

Most likely a bad ignitor. Turn off the gas to the oven. Remove the racks,remove the bottom oven pan. Remove the flame spreader to access the ignitor. Use a volt meter. Inse the probes into the ignitor connector and turn the oven on to bake. No voltage reading is a bad ERC control. If you read voltage you have a bad ignitor.

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......
