The problem is usually the igniter not reaching the correct amp draw .When the igniter does not reach the correct amp draw it may allow the gas valve to partially open or not open at all. The igniters are inexpensive and easy to replace. There is a video at www.appliancehelponline.com/servicemanual.html this will walk you thru the correct procedure for performing this test. It may be a different model but the testing will be the same.You can also enter your model # for diagrams and illustrations of your specific model. Not all models are available. All parts come with installation instructions.

Main oven does not heat at all


Sounds like the heating/starter element went out. This item is very delicate and will break if touched. They are used on almost all newer gas appliances. It takes about 3 minutes to check. Turn the oven on and look down near the burners with all of the lights in the room out. You should see a glow for a while, then it will click off for a while and then come back on. If not, then turn off the oven and get a flashlight and look for the starter element to see if it is broken. It is about one inch wide, two inches long, and 1/4 inch thick. If you do get a glow then this is good news, the element is not broken. However, the element operates a thermostatic switch which operates the gas valve. This switch may be broken. The switch and the starter element usually come out together when removed.

My oven want light its gas and the the pilot light islit


Is this a standard gas cook-top there maybe some small particle blocking the area where the gas comes out and lighting with the pilot. If you feel comfortable try lighting it with a match. First make sure there is not a lot of gas build open, so if there is a window near the stove open that and make you have plenty of ventilation before striking said match.

Oven won't come on unless you press bake and immediately hit arrow to 400 degrees. Can this be fixed


Yes, this is most likely a thermostat problem. If you have tried every temp level below 400 and it will not come on until you reach 400 on the dial, then you most likely have a temp sensor switch/ thermostat problem.
I had to assume alot of things here:
1. It is an electric oven.
2. Once you get the oven to start at the magic number and try to dial down from there, the oven turns itself off.
3. It will start up as long as the temp is first set at 400 degrees or higher.

My Magig Chef Glass Rangetop


This part can cost over $400. It is usually not worth fixing. NEVER operate the stove with a cracked top. This is tempered glass and it can just explode! It is also a dangerous electrical issue. Liquid can drip down through the crack and contact the live open element.

-F1-


F1 for Magic Chef means there is a problem with the control board or the touch pad to the board.  I would need the entire model # on sticker on the oven to see what parts are on this one.  If the touch pad is separate it will have a ribbon that goes from it to the board.  Unplug that ribbon, if the code goes away then the touchpad is the problem.  If the code stays with the ribbon unplugged then the control board is bad.  Make sure power is off to unit when touching anything!

PILOT CLICKING


Dawnie, under each burner control there is a valve and a switch. One of your switches has either become wet or shorted out. This is why it's clicking. Sometimes grease gets in them and causes this problem. The part number for the switch is 7403p367-60. You can look it up on the net to see what Im talking about. Not a hard fix. Catriver..post back.
