I need to change the magic chef model 6498VRV from natural gas to propane... How do I do this? (I don't have an owners manual, and cannot find one on the net). Thanks!
Answer JC, your model is convertible. You will need to bottom the orifices out and come back up one and a half turns. Adjust the burner flame until it is blue. Flip the cap on the regulator. Thanks!
Hi, my stove used to take 10 minutes to heat up to 350, but just recently it takes 25 minutes. It still ignites at the 2 minute mark, it just warms up much slower. Some research leads me to think the pressure regulator is to blame. If so, how easy is it to replace? Thanks
Answer Mike, replacing the regulator 74006429 isn't that difficult to replace, it can be awkward. But that's not likely the issue, especially if your top burner flames operate correctly. Your most likely issue is a weak igniter 12400035. The sooner the igniter produces 3.2 to 3.6 amps to the safety valve, the sooner the burner will ignite. If you can get access to a "clamp on" ammeter, you can test the amp draw while the igniter is glowing to determine if you have a weak igniter. 95% of gas oven heat issues are due to a weak or inoperative igniter.
I converted from LP to Natural Gas, Seems as if Burners and Oven are not getting enough gas. When I flipped the regulator, it put a concave side down into the regulator. Stove would not ignite like that. When I flipped it back the way it was with LP, everything would light, but not very big flame. What is wrong and what do I need to do?
Answer Randy, Did you readjust all the burner orifices back to the Nat Gas setting ? (two to two and a half turns out(counterclockwise). If you didn't, theres not enough gas being released from the valve to allow for proper ignition and flame. and you'll have to flip the regulator cap back to Nat gas as well. You'll need a 1/2 in. open end wrench to perform the adjustments on the orifices. Thanks and Good Luck
when oven is on, heats fine, but you start smelling a bad gas odor fills house, then Ii open oven door real quick, then I see the deal on bottom light up causing the gas to ignite again? what would be causing this?
Answer Ed, You may have a weak oven burner igniter 12400035 causing a delayed or intermittent ignition. When you remove the oven cavity bottom panel,and the flame spreader check the burner tube and openings for clogs and debris, and air shutter adjustment,it should be 3/4 to full open, on natural gas. Thanks and Good Luck
