You can rely on your Magic Chef cooktop to be there when you want to sear a steak, heat up a pot of hot apple cider or stir-fry some veggies. On rare occasions, though, your cooktop may stop working entirely. If this should happen to you, work your way through these troubleshooting tips to figure out the problem and find a solution.
Most often, when an electric cooktop stops working entirely, the problem is due to an issue with the electrical power. Start your cooktop troubleshooting by checking your circuit breakers to see if the power to that part of your kitchen has been interrupted, and restore it by flipping the circuit breaker if possible. Also, check the power cord to the cooktop to see if it has become unplugged. If the power cord appears damaged or frayed, replace it.
On a gas cooktop, the pressure regulator controls the amount of gas released to the burners. If too much gas is released, the burners often don't ignite properly. If you find a problem with the cooktop pressure regulator, this is one of the cooktop parts you can pick up at Sears PartsDirect.
Many cooktops use an electronic control board to govern the startup and temperature of the heating elements. If you notice that your cooktop's digital clock isn't working even though the stove is still receiving power, the problem may be in the electronic control board. Replace it if necessary.
