Magic Chef 61EA-3KX oven knob hard to turn

I have a Magic Chef 61EA-3KX gas range. The oven's thermostat knob easily turns counterclockwise from off to the desired temperature, and the oven lights and heats properly. However, it has recently gotten very hard to turn the knob clockwise from the desired temperature back to off. As I'm turning it towards off, there is a pull back against me. I have taken off the knob and it is clean on the inside, and there is nothing visible on or around the shaft onto which the knob fits. Suggestions?

I have an early 70's Magic Chef series VI oven/stove. The stove works fine. The oven takes about 30 minutes to light. When oven knob is turned pilot works fine. There is no gas odor before the oven lights.


My model is a UA119A-2W and I cannot find a place to light the oven pilot. Nor can I find a copy of the owner's manual anywhere online. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Hi, sounds like a weak igniter, you just need to replace it.

My magic chef kitchen range oven won't turn on, no gas


Some of the models require you to push in the oven thermostat knob to set the pilot if it blows out. So try pushing in the knob and hold it while lighting the pilot. When the pilot lights continue to hold the knob in for about a minute. When you let go of the knob the pilot should stay lit. If it does not stay lit then try it one more time. If it continues to go out the thermocouple or aso might be bad and will need service.

I cant find the stove top pilot


Electric Ignition (sparking clicking noise when control knob is turned to "light" setting) do not have pilots. The spark ignites the gas.

Magic Chef Oven lights and shuts off


This could be caused by a lack of air within the oven cavity, once the air is used up the flame will go out, it will then work again once it is relite, but will probably do the same again, this could be dangerous and requires on site proffesional attention. Regards Engineer
