Lighting pilot light on magic chef gas range

The broiler does not heat up on magic chef gas range. How do I know that gas is getting to the burner? The top four burners work fine, but the pilot light for the oven and broiler, I don't think is on. Please help

    The range is a 2003 year. There are no red buttons on the oven knob and I don't see a pilot setting. The oven knob turns and depresses. Does the depressing start the igniter? When I turn on the knob and look into the broiler area should I hear hissing because I don't hear any hissing It sounds from your comment that it is an electric spark starter. As I look at the region where the pilot is it does look like an electric igniter. Is there a battery somewhere in the system to cause the spark.

    Thanks for the help. I found out that I was not keeping the oven control in long enogh for the T/C to heat up and keep the gas flowing to the pilot. I works fine.



    Thanks again

You should start by measuring the current flow to the bake ignitor, or checking to see if the ignitor is even getting voltage. There are articles on what to measure on ignitors and how to make basic electrical measurements .

If the ignitor is not getting voltage at all, then trace the circuit back to find where the voltage is getting interruted. Thermostats are common culprits.

-Sounds like your oven has a separate ignitor for bake and broil. If so, your valve is a two-port valve and you should check the bimetal in the bake port to ensure that it hasn't been blown.
Hope that helps..............

Hello Jim,
Try to replace the ignitor if it is more than 3 or 4 yrs. old..If it not that old then Turn the knob to the pilot setting and depress the handle. Holding it down and at the same time, press down on the red button that sparks. You may have to repeat this a few times. Once the pilot lights, continue to hold down on the pilot knob for about 30 seconds. When you release the knob, the flame should stay oN. If it does not, replace the thermocouple. Once the pilot flame is steady, turn the gas valve knob to on!!!..Thank you...

Hope this helps you!!...

Regards!!!....

My Magic Chef model 9112XUB wall oven will not light. It has power and gas but will not ignite.What can I do to fix it myself?


If this model has electronic ignition, you can open up the broiler door , turn on the oven, and look to the rear of the broiler...there should be a sort of glow plug getting reddish/orange. If not, the oven won't light and you will need to obtain an ignitor for the oven. these are available through appliance parts distributors such as Bell Parts Suppy. If it is a standing pilot model, then first check to see if the pilot is lit...if it's not lit try lighting...if it won't stay lit, then the thermocouple is probably bad and will need to be replaced

How do i re ignite the pilot light


Hi

The surface on this range have standing pilots that must be lit initially. To light them:
1. Be sure the surface burner control knobs are in the "OFF" position.
2. Remove the grates and cook top.
3. Locate the pilot ports and light each of them with a match. Replace the cook top and grates.

Light the oven burner pilot in the following manner:
1. Be sure the oven control knob is in the "OFF" position.
2. Remove the broiler carriage.
3. Hold a lighted match at the top forward section of the pilot (See diagram). No adjustment is required.
4. Replace the broiler carriage.
Hope this helps...

Oven pilot light is on, but burners will not light. pilot light burns larger when trying to turn burner on. Do I need a new thermostat?


The thermostat is doing it's job if the pilot gets bigger. When you turn on the thermo, it does 2 things: Makes the pilot bigger and supplies gas to the oven safety valve in the oven. The bigger pilot heats up the bulb from the valve and the stuff inside expands and turns on the main gas. The oven cycles when temo is reached by making the pilot smaller. The most common problem is that the pilot doesn't get big enough to satisfy the valve. Take out the pilot burner ***'y. (7/16" wrench for the nut). Replace the pilot burner. The part is probably a 5414S030 if the valve bulb is located parallel to the ***'y.

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.
