Question Magic Chef oven won't get hot
Model Number: 64FA-3CKXW   Brand: Magic Chef   Age: More than 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


Hello,
Our Magic Chef oven won't get hot enough to bake. It reaches about 200 degrees at most (Not thermometer checked), but the broiler was working when I tested it yesterday. Stove top works just fine. This unit, I think, was the original appliance with our home when it was built in 1989. Has anyone had this problem, and do you know how much it would be to fix? Should we just invest in a new unit?
Thank you!!!!!

Question Ignitor glowing?

Quote:
oven won't get hot enough to bake
The model appears to be a gas range whose oven uses a 'hot surface' (glow ignitor) ignition system. A first step in diagnosing possible causes will be to observe what the oven ignitor is doing when the oven should be heating.

You can read about how common gas oven ignition systems work and the observations and tests necessary to start diagnosing problems with them at the following link:

Not before you find out what and how much fixing yours is going to cost so you can make an informed decision between those options.

Thank you. We have determined that we had a bad igniter, and we now have the new part. I need help installing it though. Any tips or tricks?

Nope, other than do NOT use plastic wire nuts if you have to cut and join the wires. Only porcelain or ceramic wires nuts should be used due to the heat in that area.
