Angry Magic Chef gas oven doesn't heat up
Model Number: 3488vtv   Brand: Magic Chef   Age: More than 10 years

My Magic Chef gas oven was working fine until the other day I went to heat it up and the temp never got over 100. I opened the oven and it was stone cold. It seemed like no gas was coming into it to ignite it. All of the burners work just fine though. It's always been a great oven. My husband says it's the ignitor but I need to know for sure. Thank You

JandD,

I have to agree with your husband, it's probably a weak glow bar igniter.

Part number: AP4012072

Part number: AP4012072


Basically, the igniter has to glow "white hot" and produce 3.2 to 3.6 amps or 3.2 to 3.6 VAC(a/c volts) to the bake burner valve, in order to open the internal switch, and release the gas.

You would need to use a multi meter, or clamp on amp probe meter, to test the circuit).

Usually, an igniter that glows to a orange or slightly red color is weak, and does not produce the proper VAC or amp draw.

Here's some meter usage information:

Good Luck,
