Default Magic Chef gas oven won't light
Model Number: 34HA 5TKXW   Brand: Magic Chef   Age: 5 - 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


Hi, I have a Majic Chef gas oven that just decided to stop working and I'm hoping you might be able to remotely diagnos it. I can set the temperature control but the oven never reaches the set temperature. The ignitor glows a bright orange but the gas valve doesn't see to turn on and the burner doesn't ignite. That having been said, it must fire at some time beause the oven temp will climb to about 200F if I wait long enough. Also, when this happens, there is a slight gas smell. I'm guessing that the ignitor is bad/weak rather than the gas valve as the broiler still works. Can you provide any suggestions?
Doug

Sounds like a classic case of a bad igniter. The glow should be white not orange. Replace the bake igniter and all should be back to normal.

Click here for the Magic Chef (Maytag) oven igniter.

I have the same problem. The ignighter glows a bright orange. I tried to use a lighter adn got a VERY weak small blue flame that flickered out after a second or two, so I think it may be the regulator for the oven.

The range top burners all work but they are actual mechanical knobs that regulate the gas. I think that an electrical signal is sent to the ovens gas regulator and tells that to come on.

Could it be this? Also if the gqas pressure is weak for some reason would it not allow gas to pass

the number on the sticker on the door is

8114p471-60

I checked it out again last night and there is definitely no gas coming out when the igniter is on. Would the "bake valve" not open if the igniter was not hot enough? It glows bright orange and is pretty hot but I read on here that it should be almost white.

I am assuming it has to be either the bake valve or igniter. Any info on this issue would be greatly appreciated.


Also I took the black cover off from under the thermostat and stove top burner controls. There seems to be some sort of regulator knob on part that sends the gas down to the stove. You can turn it about a quarter turn. Tried both ways thinking it may allow more gas to flow to bake valve but no go

Not a good idea. Try to turn it back the way it was or this basic igniter problem will turn into something else.

Your igniter is not drawing the correct amperage number, which is why there is no gas flowing through the valve - the valve needs correct amperage from the igniter in order to open.

8114P471-60 is a part number for the little sticker you found. But that's alright. This number tells me that yours is a Maytag made stove, which means it should have a flat bar igniter, which means you can use the same oven igniter I mentioned earlier.

Keith,

You're welcome to post your repair questions any time. That's why we're here. This is a free service we are offering and we certainly would never make you purchase parts from us. But please, out of common courtesy, don't post links to our competitors.

I hope you understand.
