I have a Magic Chief oven in our 1970 Sovereign
, that is either on, or off, but will not control the temperature to a specific setting.
Am I going to have to change just the thermostat, or is it time for a new temperature valve?
If I have to put much money into this oven, I may just replace it with a microwave. The cabinet above the oven seems like it gets awful hot from the exhaust of the oven, at the front face, top of the unit.
I would like to hear comments from others that own this type of oven or similar Airstream. Do you think the heat radiating from the oven exhaust will cause long term issues with the cabinet above? I don't want the wood to dry out, crack, or worse yet catch on fire...
I measured the surface temperature of the lower corner of the cabinet door, just above the oven, with a IR gun, and it registered 168 F, when the oven internal temperature was 375 F. that seems hot to me. Any thoughts???
