Gas Stove Question??
I apologize if I have the wrong n/g. I have a Magic Chef. Four burner
Propane cook stove.Electronic pilot and timers. I am having problems with
my oven. I f I want to use the oven I have to turn it on and wait maybe 15
min. for it to kick on. The pilot is on all this time. And when it does
kick it has a high pitch whistle. Then there is the electronic temp.
control. It will only go up to 350 degrees no higher. the cook timer
doesn't work either. the stove is about 6 years old. any suggestions.
Have you checked the level and amount of propane?
I can't help you with the temperature part. That sounds like an expensive
When I have had slow to light ovens I have had good luck cleaning the pilot
assembly with small wire brush.
The way these things work is the pilot is on all time. When you turn the
oven on the pilot gets bigger and heats a flame sensor. Once that achieves
a certain temp the main burner lights. A little bit of crud on any part of
the pilot assembly can reduce the gas flow to the pilot or the sensors
ability the feel the heat.
If the other posters price estimate for a new electronic control is correct
I would not even consider a repair.
