What's the trick in lighting a magic chef rv oven? When we took our camper out for it's maiden voyage, we attempted to light the oven to make the boys (and me) some corn dogs. I turned the knob to "pilot on" and stuck a flame to where I thought a pilot should be. Nothing happened. I tried to find a model number to attempt to find a manual online but could not find the model number. It's a Magic Chef with three stove top burners and a small oven. Can anyone tell me how to light the pilot?

Thanks,
Jason

On ours you have to push the knob in and hold it for about 10 sends while holding a flame to the pilot burner.  There's a thermocouple there that has to get hot before it will allow any propane out, once the pilot light is lit it keeps the thermocouple hot to allow propane to continue to flow.

It's easiest done with a long grill lighter to me.

While most should lite as others have said ours doesn't.  We don't push and hold anything.  We turn the knob on to say 200 degrees and light the pilot which heats the thermocouple and allows gas to enter.  After the thermocouple is hot, we can turn the knob back to pilot on and it gets real tiny and stays on all the time during our vacation.  Ours is a black Magic Chef 3 burner stove and oven.

And in case you wonder how to get more even heating in your RV oven, so things don't burn on the bottom: At Lowe's get a 12" PORCELAIN floor tile, as plain a one as possible, and put this on the bottom shelf of the oven. It evenly distributes the heat and things bake beautifully.
I burned a lot of biscuits before I found out about this tip.

I'm scared to cook on the propane in the camper.    So all my meals are cooked usually outside. Plus I love cooking outside.  With that said....I don't even know what kind of stove I have. I have it on tape during our walk-thru how to light it. :D  Pizza stone works well in the bottom of the stove too.

Sounds like the guys can help you out.

Forget the overn! I gain weight just walking around the campgrounds around 4:30 in the afternoon breathing in all the good smells coming from the crockpots plugged in outside!

Never leave home without it!

My wife always has problems lighting the pilot light in our Magic Chef oven. I ended up purchasing one of those long lighters and keep it on the thermocouple until it heats up a bit. Then I push in the pilot knob on the front of the stove and it lights up. During our walk through, Iwas told that we could keep the pilot light lit all weekend as long as we are camping, but I don't trust it enough to do that. I just re-light it each time we use it.

We don't have an oven in the new camper and didn't use the oven a lot when we full-timed in the big rig. But when it did need lighting....well.....that's what good husbands are for, right?

M.E.

To chime in as chief biscuit maker.. It was a real P.I.A. to light ours having to get down on the floor to see where the pilot was.. I echo everyones reply only to add that on initial lighting after turning on the main tank, that it takes a little while to purge the air out of the system, so be patient and light the top burners first to get a good gas flow..

Never have used our propane oven.  That’s where I store the crock pot!
