Question about Magic Chef 9122 Gas Single Oven

1 Answer

Faulty switch? As soon as we turn on the oven it trips the circuit breaker knocking out all power to the kitchen. We've had this oven for quite sometime and have never experienced any problems what so ever. So I was wondering if it could be something wrong with the switch or what?

I have changed oven switch plus new elements and still oven does not work pls assist thks


Oven temperature will be controlled by a thermostat which might be separate from the oven switch. There possibly is also a thermal fuse or breaker to protect against serious overheating in the case of thermostat failure.

One of those devices or the wiring or connections is probably faulty and continuity should be checked through the circuit with an appropriate meter.

We had power outage and now oven won't turn on


Did you check your breaker? If it's not the breaker, your oven might have suffered form a power surge. Call your elctrician or kitchen repair service, probably you have some quite sever electric circuit burnout, or maybe it's just a tuse?

Frigidare RM-75 5420245. When oven is turned on breaker trips. Any suggestions?


Possible burned wire either grounding or crossed into another wire. Try breaker after removing all elements. If no trip, add one element one at a time until faulty circuit is identified.

Circuit braker trips as soon as i switch oven on


It is possible there is a heavy short on the oven and so the circuit breaker cuts off the supply when the oven is switched ON.
You will need to disconnect the coils to the ovens one by one till it is confirmed of the shorted coils. A test of the coil also will indicate the fault. If this is a ELCB then the ground leak within the oven /poor ground connection of the outlet can also cause the issue. make sure there is no damping in the connections of the power to leak and trip the circuit.

The oven trip switch was tripped last night. After I swirched the switch back on the oven won't work. The lights and the stove are both working and the gigital screen is working.


If you were using the oven at the time it is likely that a short circuit occurred in the element causing the circuit breaker to trip. After switching it back on the oven wont work. You probably need to replace the element.
The switch may have tripped for another reason. If it did when you turned the power back on the electronic clock/timer generally reverts to the auto. function. You need to set the clock/timer back to manual so that the oven will work.

Went to switch oven on fan works when you turn the temp knob it trips the trip switch every time help


HI, Sounds like your from the UK
If you are referring to a trip switch as being equivalent to an American circuit breaker. (Electrical safety device designed to shut down power to an electrical appliance). Then we are on the same page.
Do the following diagnostic procedure:
1 SHUT DOWN THE POWER SUPPLY TO THE OVEN. I.E. THE TRIP SWITCH/CIRCUIT BREAKER.
2 Open the oven door and look very carefully with a flashlight at the heating element. Look at the the entire element. If it blew (similar to when a light bulb blows) you will
find white powder around the hole in it or it will be completely broken, or have bubbles in it. Some indication like that. If so it has failed and must be replaced. It is probably tripping the switch because it is shorting out somewhere. There is also the possibility that the internal wiring connectors to where the element is mounted into the oven walls is broken off and short circuiting against the oven chassis (walls). That being the case, it may be just a wiring repair in which you install new appropriate electrical contacts and re-connect the element.
Hope this helps,
Happy New Year,
Mark

The display panel is blank, and none of the buttons work. It had been working earlier in the day, but is no longer functioning. Is there a breaker button?


Hi, Check to see if there are any lights working, such as the ones that come on when you open the oven doors. If there is absolutely no power going to the unit, check the household circuit breaker panel that services the oven.
An oven works at 240 volts so the circuit breaker for it will be a double breaker, similar to the ones
electric water heaters or air conditioning units. It may have tripped. If it is tripped, then
the lever connecting the two sides of the breaker will not line up with other breaker switches in the
breaker panel. If that is the case, shut down the breaker completely and then after about 10 seconds,
turn it back on. If it will not stay on, there is an electrical problem in the circuit going to the oven or the oven itself. Hope this helps. Let me know if your need more help.
Best,
Mark

Oven wont come on, installed new igniter


Make sure there's power getting to your range, oven or cooktop. Check for a tripped circuit breaker or a blown fuse. Check the wall socket for power with a voltmeter or by plugging something else in.


A faulty igniter is probably the most common cause, however there are others:

-- defective thermostat
-- defective selector switch
-- defective gas safety valve/coil assembly

Neff U1421 main oven trips the circuit breaker.


It might be that the breaker is overloaded and it's no longer supporting the load of all the appliances together.If you do not want to change your breaker you can still use your oven by switching off other appliances that is running while you are using the oven
