I just didn't know you could fix a stove like fixing the TV, Radio, or Computer. Last week my TV started acting funny so I slapped it and problem solved. About a year ago my radio went on the blink so I slapped it and wala, it works fine. This morning my old computer would not turn on so I slapped it and got it working. I should have slapped (or tapped) the gas safety valve instead of letting that repairman do it.:)

I'll take your advice and replace the valve. But don't worry about dinner, The wife has about 15 dozen biscuits baked so we'll be having Biscuits and gravy till I get this fixed.:( I would try to fix her by slapping her but she might slap me back!:D

Thanks

I will let you know how I come out.

Ok, No way to get to it from the back, have to go thru the broiler door (which I took off) Tapped one more time, gas started coming out, turned the gas off, then plugged back in and turned the oven control knob on glow plug lit up fine, turned the gas on, oven lit. unplugged the stove and glow plugwent out but the oven stayed lit. Turned the control knob to off but the oven stayed lit. Then turned the gas off.

Magic Chef Model# 31HA-2KLX  SE#30C924622619

Part numbers on Gas control valve are:

8922

NC-4125-5

7501P017-60

The item number from your link to buy parts (repairclinic.com) is #3030 Gas burner or Control component $73.55 (the pic of it looks just like the one on my stove)

SO we are sure it's the gas control valve?

One last question before I tackle this. Does the Glow Bar Igniter keep glowing thruout the baking process?  does it stop glowing after the oven is lit?

We just used the top burners to make some chili and left the oven on during that time. The whole time the oven was on (about 45min) the igniter was glowing and didn't turn off till I turned the oven off.

Thanks

In an earlier post it was mentioned to make sure to check for gas leaks. Can this be done with dish detergent and a little water?

What about using the white plummers tape when connecting the joints, it it ok to do that or not?

Yellow Teflon Tape for Gas
(but not for "flare fittings" connections)

Ok the part came a little while ago and I put it on and it seems to be working with no leaks BUT!

The flames are shooting up the side of the oven like its going full blast while set on 200. How do I adjust the flame down some? I may have moved the thing on the end of the burner that is over the valve gas output. Could that have caused the flame problem? if so, How do I adjust it down?

the thing on the end is the shutter, it s for flame adjustment it changes the air/fuel mixture, flame should be touching the burner, mostly blue with a slight orange tip

adjust till the oven burner flame looks like the flame from the stove top burners

Adjusted the air/gas mix on the burner, flame was still to high. (it had no effect) Flame was way over the baffles on the burner so adjusted the gas out orfice on the safety valve all the way clockwise. This lowered the flame. The flame is blue with yellow tips and is still just barely still going out past the baffle and not quite hitting the oven floor. Is this normal? How high should the flame be? and is there any way to adjust it down even further? Thanks!

most gas ranges use a different oriface for LP, are you using one that came with the valve, or the oriface off the original valve?

if you are using a new oriface, it will be for natural gas, try the oriface off the valve you removed

sorry, i never even thought about this the first time you asked about the flame, i dropped the ball on that one
