Question about Magic Chef CPR1100AD Gas Kitchen Range

Open Question

The oven pilot is set too high on a Maytag CPR1100ADW. How can it be adjusted? We just replaced the oven thermostat and the oven pilot thermocouple. It works great now and holds the oven temperature correctly, but the pilot seems to be set too high. You can hear it and the flame is too big.

biggest issue with any gas oven is a faulty ignitor, not maintaining oven temp, too long to preheat, taking too long to cook, possible slight gas smell during operation, all signs of a bad ( or going bad) ignitor

Most, if not all, gas ovens do not have pilot lights any longer. They are electronically ignited. You could have a loose wire on the igniter or a faulty igniter. If your oven is new it should be covered by the warranty.

SOURCE: My gas burners are working but my oven will

Hi,

The issue with the oven , given the symptoms you've described , sounds like a faulty thermal couple, The "sensing" part of the pilot assembly needs to sit directly in the flame so when you turn "on" the oven control and the flame increases in intensity, the thermal couple can "open" the valve.

Since this is a "standing pilot" type gas range, there are no electic ignitor's for the oven, (actually it is, just not the electrically induced glow bar style). I digress, you'll need to either a) make sure the sensor for the thermal couple is not loose,check the tiny screws holding it to the pilot assy.(as a consequence not sensing the "pilot" flame) or b) replace the thermal couple itself for your range, and I think for that particular model it will come as a complete valve assembly. part #12002724 for around $45-50US. Don't just take my word for it though, double check that with your local parts depot or service provider.

**As an added note, some of those oven controls have a "set screw" for the pilot, it is behind the control dial on the oven control. You can try to adjust the pilot flame to insure the thermal couple is getting hot enough to open the valve. However, that should be left to an expert, and since you mentioned the pilot flame does increase when you turn the control "on", I doubt that is a problem.**

Hope that helps,

good luck

I have Magic Chef gas oven. Model CPR1100ADW. The pilot light don't light up nor does it come on. I don't smell gas coming from it. I can't figure what it is. Can you help me.


The oven probably has an igniter to light the pilot, and when not in use, shuts the gas off. Unplug the stove to replace the igniter. Enter your stove info and "how to replace oven igniter" on you tube for videos and detailed instructions.

Is there a conversion kit for magic chef CPR1100ADW


Yes, there is an LP conversion kit for the CPR1100ADW. Sears Parts Direct lists it here: http://www.searspartsdirect.com/model-number/cpr1100adw/1429/0124002.html . Select the Gas Control drawing. The direct link to the LP orifice kit, part number 74009923, is http://www.searspartsdirect.com/part-number/74009923/0022/464.html?modelNumber=CPR1100ADW&categoryName=Free%20Standing,%20Gas&brandName=MAGIC%20CHEF . Note: the Magic Chef range uses the same parts as a Whirlpool or Maytag range.

The gas regulator also has to be adjusted. Most ranges with converter kits available just require the regulator to be removed and turned 180 degrees before replacing it. It's recommended that a LP service person do the work. The air flow may need to be adjusted and any mistakes could be dangerous.

I hope this helps.

Converted HotPoint RGA720 to LP, burners and oven work fine, all pilots flames are still too high?


I have this model too and have had to replace two thermocouples because the pilot is so high it frys them. We replaced the whole modulator last time and it still goes out so I have to relight The pilot is at the lowest setting, it's a GE/Hotpoint issue that was not recalled. I do like the hot 125 degree oven for drying sun dried tomatoes and keeping plates warm.

Maytag DG410 gas dryer-no flame, no heat. I replaced the ignitor - that apparently isn't the problem. Other ideas?


Motor runs, but main burner will not ignite
1.heat switch set wrong---correct switch setting
2.defective timer or timer circuit---check timer wiring--replace timer motor or switch as needed
3.defective centrifugal switch in motor---clean switch or replace as needed
4.gas supply valve closed----open gas valve
5.inoperative solenoid coil---test coil for open circuit & the voltage to it
???
Pilot burner goes out
1.insufficient gas supply---- low gas pressure or clogged pilot filter or partially closed gas valve
2.carbon deposit on thermocouple tube---clean tube & check pilot burner for proper combustion
3.improperly adjusted pilot flame--adjust pilot flame until faint yellow tip begins to appear
4.faulty ignition or reset valve or thermocouple---replace

Clothes not drying, but dryer runs & heats
1.defective operating thermostat---test thermostat, replace if defective
2.fan or it's pulley loose on shaft---tighten set screw
3.incorrect heat or timer settings---reset timer
4.clothes to wet when placed in dryer----wring out or extract water from clothes before placing in dryer
5.clogged lint screen or duct (little air motion)---clean out lint screen & duct

Slow heating


  • When the temperature is consistent but too high or too low, it could be one of several different things. First check to see if the thermostat sensing bulb has come loose from its holder. It could be lying on the floor of the oven or resting on the heating element. This would cause the oven to not heat correctly.


  • If the thermostat bulb is not dislodged, it's likely that the thermostat or sensor is either mis-calibrated or defective. 

    Electronic ovens with a digital display use a sensor to monitor oven temperature. To solve temperature problems for these models, you may need to replace the sensor. On some digital-display models, you can calibrate the temperature using the key pad. See your operator's manual for details. 

    Ovens without a digital display often use a mechanical system for controlling temperature. On many of these units, you can remove the thermostat knob and adjust the knob itself to more accurately represent the actual setting of the thermostat. 

    If, when you remove the knob, there's a screw on the back of it with a small calibration plate, you can loosen the screw, adjust the plate, then tighten the screw again. If the knob isn't adjustable, and the oven temperature is off by more than 30 to 40 degrees, you need to replace the thermostat to solve the problem.

Oven will not heat up completely


Hi!

Try the following---

1.) When the food you're baking is done on top but not on the bottom--or when baking just takes far too long to finish--the bake element may be burned out.

You may get fooled into thinking it's working, because the oven is hot inside. But many electric ovens use the broil element, too, during the preheat and bake cycles. So the food may be getting heated only by the broil element, which causes poor baking results.

If the bake element is burned out, replacing it should solve the problem. Otherwise, you need to further troubleshoot the oven's electrical system to locate the defective wire or component.

2.) When the temperature is consistent but too high or too low, it could be one of several different things. First check to see if the thermostat sensing bulb has come loose from its holder. It could be lying on the floor of the oven or resting on the heating element. This would cause the oven to not heat correctly.
