My magic chef oven will not light. The pilot is lit and the flame gets larger when I turn the thermostat on, but will not light. I purchased and installed new oven safety valve and it is still doing the same thing and will not light. Any suggestions? Help!

You might want to replace the pilot assembly. Make sure the temperature sensing bulb from the gas safety valve is located in the pilot flame.

Now I have another problem, I was able to adjust the thermocouple position and I can now get it to light. The problem now is the flames are really high and shooting up along the sides into the oven compartment. It's burning way too hot, and the only adjustment in temperature is the off position. What's wrong now? Why such high flames? The valve is the exact replacement part, is there an adjustment from natural to lp I need to make? My stove is LP.

How did you convert it?

I didn't convert it in any way. I just ordered the exact part and put it on. Didn't occur to me that I would have to until the flame issue. How do I convert it?

I meant, if you ever convert the range from Natural gas to LP, how did you do it?

What is the part number of it?

Hi Gene,
Thanks for all your help. The gas stove was originally converted by our lp gas company at the time of purchase so I didn't know what they did. I figured it out. Was able to adjust the flame by tightening down the 1/2" fitting on the oven safety valve until it was just snug. I now have a pretty blue flame and my oven control knob is controlling it. thanks again!!

You are welcome. I'm glad you were able to fix it.
