If a Magic Chef Oven is not working, first check if the power cord is fully plugged into a working outlet and that the appliance is turned on. Replace blown thermal fuses and reset tripped circuit breakers. Check whether the bake element or the broil element has burnt out and caused other parts to short out. If any of the parts are burned out, replace accordingly. If the problem persists, examine the oven control board or the relay boards and replace any of them if faulty.

If the oven does not bake evenly, the convection element, broil element or the bake element might be defective. Use an ohmmeter to test these parts for continuity and replace any defective ones. If this does not fix the problem, check whether the convection motor has burnt out. A convection motor is not repairable and can only be replaced.

If there is an oven temperature problem during convection baking, the temperature sensor might be faulty. A temperature sensor works with the control board to regulate the oven temperature. Use an ohmmeter to test the temperature sensor for continuity and replace it if defective.
