has a Tappan Mity Mite that is virtualy identical to the Magic Chef. I suspect they were made by the same company. I would like to repair this because it still looks like new.
Like the original post.......... I can light the oven pilot light, but the burner will not light. There is small gas line with a screw pilot valve in it under the range top. There is also a valve in the larger gas line that goes to the burner.
I suspect that the burner control knob is failing to send gas to the burner. If this is not the culprit, then there must be a thermocouple at the burner.
Below the burner there are two gas tubes. One lights (and stays lit) that is the pilot, but the other does not.
If anyone knows how to diagnose and fix this problem, we would appreciate learning the secret. Parts availability is probably also an issue.
