View Full Version : Magic Chef Oven heats up to 450 degrees no matter what you set it at, and Pilot is almost impossible to keep lit

I'm suspecting that the gas valve for the oven is likely borked, but my problem is two fold.

1.) The pilot will not stay lit unless I light it and then hold it in while starting the burner.

2.) The oven's thermostat doesn't work, period. You can set it to 265 degrees and it will heat up to 450 or higher sometimes.

Am I correct in assuming that the valve assembly for the oven part of the range has simply gone bad?

Might be a good time to contact Magic Chep.
Or if still in warranty check with your dealer.

On the bright side, 450 is what most frozen pizzas need to be cooked :-)

That describes the easiest way for me to light the oven and pilot. Pilot will then stay on when the knob is turned to pilot.
