Hi,
In most cases these cannot be lit manually.... for your safety!!!

The ignitor needs to pull xxx amps before the gas valve will open. So even if the ignitor seems to be working it may not pull enough current to open the valve.

Any ignitor will slowly deteriorate as it ages... they need to be replaced periodically.

The temperature sensor in the oven needs to be replaced. Here is the part to order. As far as the top element, lift the top up and look for lose or broken wires on the element. Keep me posted.

Oven won't heat up, you can see a little orange light glowing and it heated a little bit, but now the light does not come on at all. Also, not sure this is a double oven, but it does have the broiler...

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.
