Question about Magic Chef Kitchen Ranges

Open Question

I HAVE A MODEL CLY1620ADB MAGIC CHEF 3 BURNER,W/ OVEN IN MY 4 YEAR OLD MOTOR HOME THAT I RECENTLY PURCHASED. THE OVEN WAS NEVER BEEN USED. THE OVEN PILOT WILL NOT LIGHT WHEN THE CONTROL KNOB IS PUSHED IN AT THE PILOT POSITION. HOWEVER, IT WILL LIGHT WHEN IN THE OVEN IS ON (LOW TO HIGH)AND THE PILOT FLAME SIZE INCREASING AS YOU GO FROM LOW TO HIGH. THE MAIN BURNER NEVER LIGHTS. THE DANGER IS THAT IF THE CONTROL IS ON (LOW TO HIGH), THE OVEN WILL FILL WITH GAS AND COULD BE IGNITED WHEN ONE OF THE SURFACE BURNERS IS LIT. IT APPEARS TO ME THAT THE OVEN CONTROL THERMOSTAT(#74006332) MAY HAVE BEEN ASSEMBLED INCORRECTLY OR IT MAY HAVE A DEFECTIVE COMPONENT. HAS ANYONE EVER SEEN THIS PROBLEM? IS THE THERMOSTAT REPAIRABLE? SINCE THIS PROBLEM MAY NOT BE UNQUE TO MY UNIT, HAS THERE BEEN ANY RECALLS ON THIS STOVE.

Hi! melisrus
If you are using LP, even if you change the regulator settings from Natural Gas to LP Gas, the orifices all need to be changed. The Orifices should have come with the new unit, if not contact Hotpoint.

Make sure you order the instruruction manual and this is an Oven with Range Top, you will need orifices for all the burners on the range top.

SOURCE: Magic Chef Range in camp trailer, pilot light in

Hi,

The most common problem for gas surface burners is that they get gas but don't light. This is generally caused by dirt or grease splatters on the burner itself. Residential-grade range/stove burners are round and have small holes around their perimeter to allow gas to flow out and create a round flame. The gas coming from these holes is often ignited by a small vertical row of holes on the side of the burner. If these vertical holes are clogged or obstructed, the gas can't ignite.

The solution is to clean the burners thoroughly. Use a toothpick to clear the small vertical holes, then allow the burner to dry completely and try lighting it again. If it doesn't light immediately, repeat the procedure

or

May be the ignitor, replaced mine and it fixed it. A gas company guy told me that is common in Magic Chef ranges.

Thanks for contacting Fixya

SOURCE: Magic chef oven pilot light out

Hi, If the oven has a standing pilot too, Open the bottom door and locate the main burner. Follow the burner toward the rear of the oven and there will be a flame switch attatched to the burner. Hold the flame near the flame switch and the gas should ignite.
Some model do not have a standing pilot in the oven. Please get me your model number off the label located around the opening of the lower door so I can look this up and instruct you better.

SOURCE: 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.

Hello Barbara,

Is the ignitor you need for the oven, stove top surface burners. If for the oven is it about a inch or so in round diameter and about 4-6 inches long with 2 wires to it and glows when oven is turned on?
the very old ignitors for the oven was a square/rectangle glow plug about a inch or so square


Which best describes the one you need?

Microwave not heating up food


This model is a lower-end type that probably didn't cost very much. Since it's over 2 years old, you have no warranty left. Most appliance repair shops charge extra $$ for servicing installed items in the home. You'd probably be better off purchasing a new comparable model. The labor fee alone might equal what you paid for it.

Old Magic Chef Gas Oven won't light


sounding like thermostat isn't working. If you could ohm out the t-stat should be closed when you call for heat. If that passes the test then only thing it could be is the gas valve.

Replacement Parts For Vintage Magic Chef stove


You probably have a 1940's model of Magic Chef. Check for the model number under the lid of the cook top on the upper right hand side of the stove. It should have the model number and the serial number, too. You will need both. The Old Applicance Club run by Jack Santoro is the place to go along with a site called "Antique gas stoves"in Georgia. Good luck with the world of vintage stoves.
