Bet you the thermostat is shot

Magic Chef 31000... | Answered on Apr 10, 2010

Your range has a small 3"x1"x1" metal box with a gas valve going into it placed right behind the broiler flame tube; this gas safety valve alows the gas to enter the "pilot" tube to be lit by an piezio electric ignitor: that is the clicking you hear when you try to operate the oven. this gas valve needs to be replaced as, it is not opening to feed gas to the ignitor. an appliance parts store will have the oven gas valve; it just screws into place. be sure to turn off the gas and, remove power to the range before you do any work on it.

igniter is weak,replace it

Magic Chef 31000... | Answered on Mar 28, 2010

To replace the igniter (flat style), first turn off power to oven, shut off gas valve to oven, gain access to the back of the range and remove the cover from the igniter connector. Take the oven door off by pulling it up off the hinges, remove the cover over the oven burner to gain access to the igniter. Remove the two screws and pull the igniter out, then reverse to install. The part number for the flat igniter is 12400035.

This sounds like your ignitor is not quite reaching the proper amp draw. For a free video on testing this go to www.appliancehelponline.com/servicemanual.html

Magic Chef Gas Ovens

If your Magic Chef gas oven doesn't light, most likely the oven igniter (rectangle style) is the problem. The igniter may glow and appear to be working, but doesn't get get hot enough to open the oven bake valve. I recommend replacing the igniter first.

This oven and range work from two separate regulators and it sounds like the one for the oven has failed. Have it replaced and that should get you going again. Hope this helps. Good luck.

Press cancel and bake buttons simultaneously for 3-5 seconds until C appears then use up/down buttons to change to Fahrenheit. Hope this helps!

Just because the igniter glows, does not necessarily mean it is good. Igniters grow weak with age and occasionally need to be replaced. The following link explains a little theory has these igniters and how to replace one:


Replacement parts (if required) can be purchased at any of the following websites:


Prices vary between these sites, so shop and compare. The first three sites listed also offer helpful exploded view diagrams to help you locate and properly identify the parts you need.

If you have any qiuestions please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.

Go to their website (Magic Chef) and there should be a conversion kit. Simple to do - you just change out a few parts. Good luck

Magic Chef 31000... | Answered on Feb 08, 2010

It sounds like you have a weak igniter. Just because the igniter is coming on and glowing doesnt mean its getting hot enough to open the gas valve. The way the igniter operates is as it heats up, the hotter it gets the more current is able to pass through it. It needs to be able to get hot enough to allow the proper current to reach the gas valve for the gas valve to open. This is the issue 99/100 times. In the 4 years i've been working for my company I have only replaced two gas valves and both times it was because the customer shorted it out themselves by trying to replace the igniter without unplugging the unit. My website is down to be able to cross-reference the part and get you pricing but the factory OEM number for the bake igniter is 7432P075-60.

The igniter will be mounted on your burner tube by 2 5/16 screws. Will have to remove the bottom panel of the oven to access it. You will need to remove the broiler drawer at the bottom to acces the harness for the igniter. Unclip the harness and pull the igniter out from the top. BE SURE TO UNPLUG THE UNIT FIRST as you could run the risk of shorting your gas valve.

Good luck with the repair. Let me know how it goes. _MJ_

if it is gas i would check the either bake or broil ignitor as both cycle on and off to preheat oven,, if one is out u will experience the problem u are discribing. some replacement ignitors are sgr403 or a 12400035 u can get pics of these ignitors on repairclinic.com hope this helps..

Magic Chef 31000... | Answered on Feb 07, 2010

no you do not need oven on! if it is a freestanding pilot that passes gas as soon as supply is on it should light with a match, if it isnt you may have a clogged orifice on that pilot hood, you need to remove the pilot line at pilot hood and get orifice out it may be stuck in there and need some coaxing but it'll come out it may even stick to pilot line once you take it apart, just clean with a clean rag and replace, I would clean pilot hood at this time as well , wire brush or very small file to clean any rust in there, be carefull not to break hood of pilot body it is easy to do if your not gentle

hello there:
On Magic Chef ranges, F1 usually indicated a defect in either the keypad or the electronic control. If the error shows when the keypad is disconnected from control, the problem is usually in the control. If the error ceases with the keypad disconnected, the keypad is usually the cause.
On some models the keypad and electronic control are 1 integral part in which case the whole control assembly usually has to be replaced to correct the problem.
: Until you can get this part replaced you can disconnect the ribbon cable from the board and the error should go away can
here is as picture of the part you will need c8db069.gif
: disable the beeping? if this is happening
The buzzer circuit may be able to be separated from the rest of the control. If wired to it, the wire(s) may be able to be cut. or removed
hope this is very helpful for you
Best regards Mike
