I went to a local appliance store and was told that the knob/thermostat is one complete assembly and only available thru a RV specific appliance place.
They also had no reference or cross reference for the oven serial number.

Peter ~

I wonder if that's the case with my older one too? Hmmm...now my curiousity is peaked, I may have to find time to fit this "quest" in sooner rather than later ~

Thanks y'all. I too haved baked up a couple of delights with "manual control". The choclate chip cookies were crunchy on the outside and soft in the middle... not bad with milk! The biscuits on the other hand were way to dry, not even the gravy helped. There are some numbers on the part itself but difficult to make out.I will be taking it to an appliance store to see if they can decipher. I am 100 miles from civilization enough to find "parts heaven". We must take the buckboard to town for provisions every month!If any one does come up with a source I'd appreciate it.

Unhappy Harper Thermostat

I have a 1966 Magic Chef, 4 burner, also. The stove top works fine, but the thermostat doesn't control the oven. It lights, but just like it's been said in some of the postings it has to be manually controlled. The owners manual indicates that under the control knob there is a heater pilot adjusting screw (green) and a constant pilot adjusting screw (red). When I checked for these I noticed that the heater pilot adjusting screw was still there, but the constant pilot screw (red) was missing. I haven't been able to find a suitable replacement part yet -- any suggestions???? Might this be all there is to the problem???

Magic Chef

Hart Enterprises @ 1.800.782.2455 is who Magic Chef told me to call to get replacement parts for my stove/oven.

I needed a nut & ferrule for my oven pilot light and they had it stock @ $1.40 plus $5.70 for S&H.

oven thermostat

same problem here with our 4 burner, as an appliance repairman myself, I went to Fox appliance parts here in ATL but have had no luck so far. The entire assendbally behind the freekin' knob needs replaced to restore automated thermostat controll of the oven.
I'd kinda like to find a furnace cut-off button that clicks at 350 deg and cuts off the gas! Let y'all know if I can finger something out! Maybe someone can fill me in on the model # of the not so Magic chef, ours is illegible. tod47d

Magic Chef Fixes?

Today I ordered a Thermostat for my 4-burner Magic Chef. My model # is BT22LS-4TVX, which I'll bet is a compatible model number for the bulk of 4-burner RV Magic Chefs. This model number does come up as an RV appliance on RepairClinic.com. However, my serial number was obliterated by some idiot who glued a metal safety sticker over it. This has caused some problems being absolutely certain I am ordering the right part.

This part was in stock and is shipping today, they say.

Going to see if the thermostat fixes my main problem, which is that the oven burner won't shut off. Of course I had to buy an assembly rather than just the bulb and bi-metal strip.

I ordered this part from repairclinic.com for $84 bucks plus about $6 shipping. Part #707965 on their website. I have 30 days to return the part if it doesn't fit, but I eat the shipping. I compared three sources, two had in stock, one didn't. These folks were the cheapest.

My other problem is the pilot safety valve, which won't open up at all - have temporarily bypassed this. This, too, is sold as an assembly and is an in-stock $80 part that I may or may not replace depending on whether or not my new thermostat has a separate "pilot on" setting on the knob.

Anyway, I thought I would pass along this source - it has excellent photos of the parts so you can see if what you're buying resembles your original part.

I did call Hart as one of the sources, by the way. Their price for Thermostat was $90 and would have to be ordered. Couldn't sell me a pilot safety valve without the serial # of the stove.

Will let you know if I'm back in business stove-wise after I fool with this stuff this weekend.

More Parts

I went ahead and ordered the pilot valve shut off. It occurred to me that if the pilot light went out while the thing was in use (like someone slammed the oven door shut and it blew the pilot out) my trailer would be pumped full of LP and lead to a very bad day.

AND - I saw a stove for sale for $75 in the parts forum of this site. Too late for me but maybe someone else can snag it.
