I need to change my magic chef range from natural gas to propane. Do I have to change the orifices out or is there a valve that I can readjust?
Answer M.O, the unit is self 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.
Hi, My Magic Chef propane gas oven started whistling and now it wont heat up. What do you think? Thanks, Paula
Answer Hello Paula. The only thing that could cause that issue is either the gas coming to the unit is low or out or the pressure regulator is bad.
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.
