    Default Magic Chef range timer continually going off

    I have an old Magic Chef gas range/microwave combo unit model #24FN-6CKXWV8 and serial #17C812456979 from the late '80s. Over the years, we have had problems with the timer on the oven/range unit continually going off. You can hear it ticking so it is timing something (we have never used the timer on the oven, only the microwave), and then the darn thing goes off. We cannot figure out how to turn the timer off permanently. As I type this, it is ticking away and, no doubt, will go off again, driving us nuts.

    Magic Chef's website does not list this unit (possibly too old) for their user's manuals so I have no way to figure out how to turn the timer off.

    Any help you could give would be most welcome.

    Hi Sharon,

    Your range is quite old, I found the parts diagram for it and the clock/timer assembly is no longer available. Without the wiring diagram I couldn't tell you if you could disconnect the clock without other issues that can happen to do it.

    Can you just tell me how to turn the timer off? I assure you that we've tried EVERYTHING, and this is driving me crazy.

    Turn it off from the front? I really couldn't tell you without seeing a photo of it Sharon.
