What part is nt working when my magic chef 34mn37kxw clicks but will no ignite burner

Can you see a spark when that happens? It should be right in the vicinity of the bottom of the gas flame, and it should spark briefly every time you hear that clicking noise. That's what lights the flame.

If you see a spark, your burners may just need a thorough cleaning inside. If you do NOT see a spark but you still hear the clicking noise, remove the burner trays and try to find someplace where the little wire leading to each "spark plug" is permitting a spark to the stovetop instead of the burner.

Flame is flickering

The Dometic refrigerators use an ammonia coolant which makes it different from residential units. A good steady flame is essential for proper operation. So first make sure that you are using a winter mix fuel, and that you tank is not close to empty. Obtain a long handled VERY SMALL wire brush (brass if you can find it), and then go into the back of the unit. First, gently clean the around the pilot light area especially the thermocoupler. Check the burner unit and see if you have a mostly blue or a lot of yellow flame. The yellow flame indicates impurities so you would would to clean that area of the burner.

Carbon from the back of the burner. higher flame from the back of the burner

Possible that a fully cleaning of the burner is needed as there can be cases of clogging or even food particles having caught up into the burner over a period of time. The use of a pressurised air to clean will be good as it will be worth while to remove and clean the entire burner assembly.

This rv has been parked for a year. When I first started it it worked perfectly on gas. Then after a few days, when it sensed it was time to increase gas to burner it would blow out the pilot with a small...

Hello, First thing would be what is the make and model number of the unit? I have also found on units such as dometic and norcold there are recent manufacturer recalls due to issues with the burners. I will await till you provide the make and model number before makeing a specific solution to your issue. I await your reply and will respond to any questions you have as well.
Thank you,

Burner lights. Flame pulls away from burner and sensor. Unit shuts off

The first thing I would do is check burners to make sure they are clean. Often if rust particles or carbonsoot come loose from inside of the heat exchanger they can partially clog burner opening which causes increase in gas pressure to fewer ports.This can make the flame roll out of burner compartment shutting off flame rollout switch.With burners off turn thermostat down so that furnace won't come on and inspect burners. If they are dirty you can use shop vac with crevice tool to clean most of them. If needed the burners can be removed for cleaning. Usually all you have to do is raise up on the back end of burner and slide it backwards to clear air shutter and burner orifices and then remove. Clean one at a time and put them back in the same position they were in.When they are all back in furnace reset flame rollout and check furnace.
If burners are not dirty then I would have service tech. check gas pressure and repair as needed. Hope this helps you. Thanks

I have an older natural gas furnace that has a manifold and 4 burners. I clean & inspect it myself every year. This fall I removed & cleaned each burner as usual. I'm now experiencing something...

You need to reclean the burners every little hole needs to be cleared of rust the only thing that can cause fire in the tube is the gas is not getting out. Try scrubbing with a wire brush then use compressed air to blow out each opening in the burner.

Right stove top burners won't ignite

Your right side burners probably have small vertical lighting holes that are clogged where the pilot lights the burner. Use a sewing needle to poke each hole clean. While you're at it, poke clean the horizontal burner holes just to make sure they are not clogged either. Are there also little tunnels from the burners to each pilot flame? Make sure those are clean inside and attached properly on each end. The pilot flame should be approx 3/8" tall. Compare the working pilot flame to the non-working pilot flames and adjust as necessary. Each pilot has a small aluminum tubing running to it, the adjustment screw will be on this tube. You'll just need a small flat head screw driver to turn it counter-clockwise to increase flame. Hope this helps. Let us know if we can be of further assistance. Douglas

Measure the voltage to Terminals #2 and #3 on the main gas valve. If the voltage remains consistent while you hear the sound and the burners diminish slightly, the problem will be your main gas valve. If the voltage fluctuates, you will have to trace it back through the wiring to see through which switch you are losing it.
If this furnace has a hot surface ignitor with flame sensor, try cleaning the flame sensor with some emory cloth.

I hope you find this information to be very helpful as a good starting off point for you.

Please leave a rating. :-)

The back burner doesnt consistently light up.

If the flame doesn't go completely around the burner, ther is an obstruction at the outlet holes. Make sure all outlet are clear of dirt, rust,or any material. Even water will block the outlets.

Back burner makes periodic clicking noise and flames increase

This clicking noise would be an indication that the burner is 'burnt out'. Burners have individual ports that release individual flames to create one big flame.

If the burner has a hole in it or the burner's internal baffles are burnt out the burner will make a 'popping' or 'clicking' noise.

Also, heat makes metals expand and when metal expands it makes a clicking noise. The increase in flame could be because the burner has a large hole in it or the holes are increasing in size as they expand, thus throwing a larger flame.

Just a thought.
