Anyone know where I can find wiring diagrams for light commercial magic chef furnace?

    No. But furnace wiring is fairly generic. You may have to just dig into what is there and figure it out. Make a wiring diagram as you go. 1 wire at a time

    I recently serviced a Magic Chef. Light commercial low boy oil fired. Had to replace the belt drive blower motor.
    The only thing atypical was it had 2 fan/limit controls. I guess because it's designated commercial. The second control was used as a limit only, set at a higher temp. Like @EBEBRATT-Ed said, those old furnaces are are all wired the same. No boards or TDR's to worry about. Pretty straightforward.

    Post a pic of it and and any questions, someone can help. Anything special/different about the burner/controls, i.e
    -low/high fire w/ damper control
    -multi fuel
    -2 fuel pump solenoids
    -older model ODR
    etc.

    It does have 2 high limits, one above the heat exchanger and one below with a 230 vt blower. The problem is its completely unwired otherwise it wouldn't be a issue.

    The control circuit is 115v. Burner, limits. One leg of the 220v goes right to the motor. If it's a High volt motor, there should be a diagram on the motor for specified voltage and rotation. Some of the terminal numbers are hard to see in the motor so make sure it's right.

    Ok thanks nut, would the burner circuit go through both fan limits or just Top? Same with the blower side?

    The blower is already wired so speed and rotation is all set everything is wired into one box

    I would think the burner would go through both limits in series.

    The fan I would think would go with the fan controls wired in parallel.

    I'm not positive as I only replaced the motor and cycled it. I think the limits get wired in series but only one controls the fan (The lower one). Are there wires on the fan side of both controls?

    Yes there were wires on the fan side of both controls

    Series or parallel?

    Not sure would it matter.

    I guess it doesn't, just curious as to why. It's a single speed belt drive motor. Maybe if the first fan control failed, the second would take over. But it's got 2 limits.
    Any progress with the wiring?
    What exactly is the issue, burner circuit or fan circuit, and where are you getting hung up?

    The fan circuit, I inherited this after someone else worked on it .all the feeds come into one junction box and are not connected
