Oven: Magic Chef 31JN-2KLX-ON, Gas
I am trying to help my mom fix her oven, so the information I have comes through her. She says the oven has gradually taken longer and longer to light up. Now it does not light up at all, even after waiting for a couple of minutes. I know from looking at it myself that the stove top burners work fine. I know the electric igniter in the oven glows when you attempt to turn the oven on. I know the manual shut-off valve located under the "hood" is turned to the On position. The manual does not have a troubleshooting section. It looks to me that there are only two parts that could be at fault. It's either the igniter isn't getting hot enough to cause the gas valve to open or the gas valve isn't working. I would guess that just because the igniter glows doesn't necessarily mean it is working properly. Any suggestions guys?
