Magic Chef Oven pilot
We are working on the appliances in our '65 Safari.
The instructions for our Magic Chef tell us to turn the control knob to 300 and then light the pilot. It does not say what to do after that?
When the oven comes up the the set temperature on the control knob and turns the burner off, the pilot goes off with it. In addition, if the oven has reached the set temperature, whatever thaqt may be and the burner goes off, the oven cannot re-ignite to maintain temperature because the pilot always goes off too.
If we leave the control knob in the off position and are only using the range top, do we even need to light the pilot inside the oven?
Now, to the heater. If you light the pilot light in the heater, and turn the thermostat to ON, the incoming gas blows the pilot light out.
We hope you will have some suggestions for us and thanks very much!
