    Well, that works, but now this poses a new question. I am off the elctrical grid and for now use a generator for basic lighting needs and to go on the computer. And now to turn on my stove. Is there a way to by-pass the electronic ignition?

    not to my knowledge but it uses very little voltage and you can turn the top stright by lite to low and light them with a match but the oven uses a safty valve you need to contact techinacal support at whirlpool to see if they have a kit as they now own majic chef

We have a Magic Chef gas oven (model # CPL1100BDW) without electronic ignition. The oven isn't working. The oven pilot is out, can't get it to light, and the oven will not light - (obviously)....


Hello & Welcome to FixYa
If the pilot is clean and still won't light then the problem is with the safety valve that won't open and so needs replacement. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

My Magic Chef is a 1979 gas oven and it won't light


OK, you will need to watch the pilot when you turn the temp control. It should get longer and give heat to a coupler that should be attached to your gas valve. If the pilot does not extend when you turn the temp control then the temp control is bad. if it does then your valve is bad.

I hope I got the right kind of machine doing this blind.

Magic Chef range the pilot on the oven will not light.


Is this a manual lighting pilot,do you light it?

If so you may have a bad gas valve.

If this is an auto light pilot it could be the electronic spark is bad.Im guessing the popping noise is the autospark trying to light.

Propane not getting to oven... stove top works fine..


The pilot light must be lit and stay lit before you will have any propane coming into the oven. This is a safety feature.

I ran out of propane...so now truck is filling us up..how do I get the oven working again..how to light the pilot light?


Hi there, hope this helps. On the front of the oven, usually on the left side, where your thermostat is, has a red button sticking out, that is your pilot safety. To light it, you need to open the lower door, and aprox. in the center of the area, is your pilot, has a small pipe going to it, you have to hold the red button in, and light the pilot in that lower chamber, and most of the time, once the pilot is lit, you must hold the button for 60 to 90 seconds. If it does not stay lit when you let go of tthe button, you may have additional problems, let us know. And thank you.

Delay in oven burner to light after pilot is lit.


Usually delayed lighting on a standing pilot system is caused by a gas pathway that is dirty from spilled food or grease. If you can remove the burner assembly and clean it that will correct the problem. If there is a removable plate above it then you can remove that and get access instead of removing it. Pilot ignitions work by creating a column of gas between the pilot and the burner that is established when the burner is turned on kind of like a fuse. A small tube my be used to establish the column of gas between burner and pilot and it may get blocked with food that overflows. Sometimes the pilot is just located right next to the burner and may get partially blocked or the orifice in the burner next to the pilot may be blocked. Cleaning all this helps. Be very careful with gas. Work in a well ventilated area. Turn on gas very briefly to run an ignition test. Turn off the gas and vent it off if it fails to light in about 5 seconds. Unburned propane drops to the floor and collects. Natural gas rises. Be aware of this when you ventilate.
