SOURCE: Magic Chef Gas Oven - Heats up slowly and has intermittent gas smell

STOP USING THE OVEN IMMEDIATELY!!! You are not getting enough air to the burners to burn all the fuel. Not only will you have an explosion hazard, you'll have a carbon monoxide hazard either of which will KILL YOU. Read all of the info below before you begin.

You need to clean all the burners and inlets thoroughly. You probably used the oven for a lot of broiling of meats or it is quite old. The deposits are clogging the tubes which gauge the amount of air entering the burners or the burner holes themselves. The burner tubes are generally removable by removing one screw and giggling the units clear. Before taking anything apart, note carefully the positions of any mix plates and scribe small marks between the two surfaces. Use a heavy duty cleaner or WD-40 to loosen grime. Don't use abrasives like Comet. Then wash in mild detergent with hot water and dry. Be sure all burner openings are clear. After assembly, note the color of the flames. They should be about 90% blue along their length from the burner head. If they are not, you didn't finish the job cleanly or you have another problem. If the burners are old, rusty or have irregularly shaped flame holes, replace them.

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.

Our MAGIC CHEF gas range has a pilot light that comes on, the ignitor comes on, but the oven does not work heat. Any ideas would be appreciated.


First off, decide which you have, a pilot lite or an igniter coil. In electronic controlled units, when the oven won't light, as long as there's gas available, 98% of the time the igniter is bad, even though the old one may glow and seem to be very bright, it could have a small hairline crack in the ceramic, which would not allow the proper amount of electrical current to travel to the gas oven safety valve, which would then make it open and release the gas. A new igniter works almost every time.

My stove lights very slow with a low flame. Should the igniter stay on after it lights oven


Yes the ignitor stays on even after the burner is lit. The ignitor is wired in series with the oven valve. It sounds like the oven valve isn't opening all the way. A new ignitor should solve this problem. The old igniter builds up resistance and doesn't let the correct voltage through to the oven valve for it to open properly.

Magic chef self ignitor top,, how do u get the oven to work.. is it self ignite too. i turn on oven ger a glow in the oven,, dont know the model ,,older stove. good shape. bought house with gas stove...


If the glow bar is glowing and the oven doesn't come on in about 30 - 45 seconds.... it probably is the glow bar that needs to be replaced. BUT it could be the oven valve. Usually it is the glow bar.
The glow bar is wired in series with the oven valve and even if it is glowing it may not be sending the correct voltage through to the oven valve. To change the glowbar... unplug the appliance, unscrew 2 screws holding the metal bracket to the burner and remove the ignitor. You can cut the 2 white wires going to the ignitor and use ceramic wire nuts with the new ignitor.

I have a magic chef oven that will not iginite, the electric ignitor will not come on for the oven but the one for the broiler will, what causes this??


Most likely a bad ignitor. Turn off the gas to the oven. Remove the racks,remove the bottom oven pan. Remove the flame spreader to access the ignitor. Use a volt meter. Inse the probes into the ignitor connector and turn the oven on to bake. No voltage reading is a bad ERC control. If you read voltage you have a bad ignitor.

Oven won't light


Hey im sorry to hear that...
I fix many ovens., however not really familiar to yours...
However instead of searching for thermostat, try looking for either thermo-couple, falme flaiure device or falme safety device these are the three main termonologies used....

Hope this helps......

Im sorry cant provide you with a full on solution ... but my guess is that your is probably a thermocouple......

Magic Chef Oven won't light


Your oven bake ignitor is becoming defective. Even though it is glowing, the resistance is not great enough to "pop" the gas valve open and is slowly seeping gas into the oven cavity. With a strong ignitor, the oven should light within 30-45 seconds. Because this is a gas oven, I DO NOT RECOMMEND FIXING IT YOURSELF. Call an experienced technician.
