I have a Magic chef gas range from 1971 it is gas , pilots

Customer Question

I have a Magic chef gas range from 1971 it is gas , pilots not igniters, I think it is called a uniburner. I cannot find model or serial number. The problem is the oven is not lighting. The oven control feels looser than usual but the oven pilot and the top pilots which are controed by the same Robertshaw control as the oven itself both work.The Thermostat is connected to that control also. At first I thought that the control unit was faulty , but the pilots work and it lets gas out to the oven, but the oven burner don't lightup. I changed the gas valve at the back of the oven thinking that was the problem but no luck. What could be the problem? HELP

Welcome to Just Answer.

The model number is XXXXX a sticker or plate in the door jam of the bottom broiler drawer if it is a manual clean oven.
If it is a self clean oven with a storage drawer down below the sticker with the model number is XXXXX in the door jam!
