Hello, The Magic Chef oven does not heat. Was wondering what part I would need to fix this, please? Want to order the correct part.
(I received instructions on how to install part: AP4102828.)
Answer Jacqueline, There are several possibilities. The more likely issues are, a faulty relay board 7428P009-60 (depending on serial number) A broken wire in the harness. An "open" hi limit switch circuit 7403P063-60. Usually, if you can program all the selections on the electronic control 7601P156-60 and there are no error codes displayed, the control is not the issue. You'll need to remove the oven from the cabinet, so you can access the back of the wall oven and the relay board and wires, or remove the top cover, to access the hi limit switch and wiring to test or inspect the components.
How do you install this: Item Number: AP4102828 Please? (I only have a screw driver and a hammer.)
Answer Hello Jacqueline,
First thing you need to do is go tool shopping. You will not need the hammer. It should be left in the other room, depending on your temperance. You will need a 1/4 inch nut driver and a Phillips head screwdriver at the least.
As is the norm in appliance repair, the first step is to guard your life by discontinuing the power supply to the unit. You will need to remove the screws on the top trim piece and lift it off. Now you need to remove all of the buttons and knobs. This will allow you to tilt the glass forward so it can be lifted out. Now the screws, (approximately 6 of them), can be removed that hold the metal plate in that the clock is mounted to. When they are removed, the metal plate can be tilted forward and the clock can be removed from it.
This is the crucial part. Do not remove all of the wires from the clock unless you enjoy nightmares. The proper way to continue at this point is to remove one wire from the old clock and, keeping it thread through the metal mounting plate, place it on the new clock assembly. I know the wires are short and it is a bit of an aggravation, but this is the easiest way and it will work. remove and replace each wire one at a time. When they are all replaced, the assembly can be reassembled in the reverse order of the disassembly. If the wires are hard to remove, you can use a small screwdriver to pry the connectors up from the base of the clock terminals. Do not grab the wire and pull. This will normally pull the wire from the spade connector and the spade connector will still be on the board. Please let us know if we can assist you further.
Clock display light goes out when oven heats up. Oven works but you can't see the oven temp. When oven cools down,if you open & close the oven door, the display light will come back on. Any ideaes on the problem?
Answer Hello Ray. The first thing you will need to check is the wiring and make sure none is bad or loose connections on the unit. If all is good, then you will need to replace the clock assembly 7601P156-60 as it has shorted and is bad.
