Question about Magic Chef Kitchen Ranges
Propane is a "dirty" gas. That can sometimes result in a particle of debris getting lodged in a pilot orifice, causing a low pilot flame. Inspect the burning pilot, look to see that the pilot flame encompasses the thermocouple so that the thermocouple may get hot enough to open the gas valve. If the pilot is too low, sometimes tapping on the pilot assembly with some handy tool will dislodge any restricting particles from the pilot orifice and restore flame size. Make sure that the pilot or thermocouple have not been struck by some object and knocked out of place. If the flame and thermocouple seem OK, you may have a bad thermocouple. Before replacing the thermocouple, loosen and re-tighten it's connecting nut at the valve (follow the thermocouple "wire" to find the valve) , if the connection is poor, sometimes that will restore good contact.
Also to note: the pilot will be at minimum when the control valve is "off", the pilot flame size should at least double when the control valve is turned on. Be careful, that is gas you are working with.
