What Is a Magic Chef Furnace?

The Magic Chef Furnace is a standing pilot furnace for home heating made by the appliance company Magic Chef. The company no longer manufacturers furnaces, but older models can still be found in use.

Magic Chef’s furnace line was produced from the 1970s to 1988. While Magic Chef still exists as a brand name, the company was acquired by Maytag in 1988, and the heating, ventilating and air conditioning division of the company was renamed Armstrong Air. Armstrong continued to produce furnaces after the sale and some of the parts are interchangeable. Armstrong is still in business, and their dealers may be able to offer parts and maintenance.
