Gas oder when using oven, not when using burners. stove well over 14 years old.


What brand is it? Does the oven use a glow-bar ignitor, or a spark ignitor. I'm assuming it uses a glow-bar ignitor, and that ignitor is weak and needs to be replaced.

Magic chef self ignitor top,, how do u get the oven to work.. is it self ignite too. i turn on oven ger a glow in the oven,, dont know the model ,,older stove. good shape. bought house with gas stove...


If the glow bar is glowing and the oven doesn't come on in about 30 - 45 seconds.... it probably is the glow bar that needs to be replaced. BUT it could be the oven valve. Usually it is the glow bar.
The glow bar is wired in series with the oven valve and even if it is glowing it may not be sending the correct voltage through to the oven valve. To change the glowbar... unplug the appliance, unscrew 2 screws holding the metal bracket to the burner and remove the ignitor. You can cut the 2 white wires going to the ignitor and use ceramic wire nuts with the new ignitor.

You have not responded to my clarification request, so I'm guessing that you have resolved this issue. If not, let me know if I can still be of assistance.

Hi Carlsr,

The F1 error code description is an electronic oven control failure. To fix this error, you need to replace electronic oven control (also called EOC or clock).

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

I'm not an expert, and I'm reading you're post while looking for a solution for our oven, so this is in no way should be taken as a suggested solution, it isn't!!!....here it is anyway: I think it might be a bad ignitor, I have replaced a couple on our stove and both times we had exactly the same symptoms you're experiencing, I think also we're in line for a third ignitor for this "less then 10 year old Magic Chef". Good luck
