Question about Magic Chef Ovens

1 Answer

I have a Magic Chef oven about 15 years old. Model 3868V V V, serial # 42547130QK. The oven heats to less than 200 degrees, and that takes a long time. I took the heating element out, no obvious signs of problems except some discolored spade ends. Is there a resistance spec I can check before I tear into if further?

All you need to check for is continuity. If you have it the element is good.

Magic chef oven/stove top range not staying hot


Hi, It very well could be the ignitor. Sometimes they work at first and then will not open the gas valve later in cycle. You can set the oven to heat and watch the ignitor. If it glows and the gas will not ignite in 30 to 45 seconds, the igniter is getting weak. I jope this helps.
Please let me know if I can assit you further.

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.
