On lighting the oven, smell of incomplete combustion, flame size up an down.


David Large... hello,

No make or model came thru with your question...
Regardless... GAS appliances indoors can greatly affect the continued quality of the rest of your life... (or not).

Really good thing you noticed you ARE STILL having issues.

There are really only two things that will cause your
flame to vary wildly as you describe...
- damaged valve body
- marginal thermocouple (failing or installed too tight).

If your house pressure/delivery were wrong it should
manifest in all your gas burners.

(The burner replacement (previously mentioned) reason... I'm hoping was for another reason)

Cautionary statement:

Gas fittings should only be opened by competent technicians using properly sized tubing wrenches and approved joint SEALING materials. APPROVED Post assembly leak tests should be performed and inspected to assure system integrity. Too tight is just as dangerous as too loose for joint connections. Carbon monoxide detectors should always be equipped & routinely maintained in every living space. Thermocouples & heat sensors (like properly sized fuses & breakers) are engineered for everyone's safety and wellbeing. MANUFACTURER'S Instructions should be precisely followed when service is necessary.

KFGU706. How do I eliminate a gas smell emanating from the left front burner control?


Is the burner installed properly? Do you have a pilot that is not working or a line that is cracked. Is the control knob area leaking?
Use soap suds to see if you can find out where it is leaking. If you use a match be very careful of fire.

Gas smell when oven is off


You definiatly have gas leak. The only way to find the gas leak is either use a gas leak detector which is an expensive device to buy and the second method is to use your eyes, nouse and a sponge with soap on it and every posible joint that is suspect put the foam over the pipe joint to see if you have any small bables created. Where you see small babbles then you have the leak .

The pilot light is on but I am not gettintg any smell of gas going to the oven. All four burners are able to light but I cannot get the oven to light.


When the oven lighting mechanism lights the gas the flames heat a temperature sensor that, once hot, increases the pressure in the sensor's copper pipe and opens a safety valve to allow gas to continue to flow (It's made like this so, if your flame gets blown out, the sensor cools and cuts off the gas supply, making it safe from gas leaks). These sensors occasionally fail, and very sensibly "Fail safe" - No pressure in the sensor pipe, the valve won't open and there is no gas to the burner.
If you take a look inside the oven at the back where the burner is, you will see the sensor, usually the bit that is in the flame is cylindrical, about an inch long made of metal about 3 or 4 mm thick, tapering at the end. It will be held in place by a nut that fits on a thread at the base of the sensor. Running from the sensor is a copper pipe that runs to the cutoff valve. Unbolt the sensor and withdraw it from the hole it is mounted in, trace the copper pipe back to the valve (where it is usually screwed into the valve with a 10mm connector that looks like a car brake pipe connector. Unbolt from the valve. These sensors are widely used on most gas appliances (Boilers, gas fires, cooker hob burners and patio heaters all use the same kind of sensor). You should be able to get a replacement from any gas appliance service agent. If you go into a shop, take it with you. The only thing you need to do is make sure the replacement you get is long enough. If you are offered one that is slightly longer, that

I think what you are describing is only the pilot light running. If there are no flames at all from the burner, or it lights, but then fails very quickly, it may be your safety cutout is not operating as it should. When the oven lighting mechanism lights the gas the flames heat a temperature sensor that, once hot, increases the pressure in the sensor's copper pipe and opens a safety valve to allow gas to continue to flow (It's made like this so, if your flame gets blown out, the sensor cools and cuts off the gas supply, making it safe from gas leaks). These sensors occasionally fail, and very sensibly "Fail safe" - No pressore in the sensor pipe, the valve won't open and there is no gas to the burner.
If you take a look inside the oven at the back where the burner is, you will see the sensor, usually the bit that is in the flame is cylindrical, about an inch long made of metal about 3 or 4 mm thick, tapering at the end.

The only thing you need to do is make sure the replacement you get is long enough. If you are offered one that is slightly longer, that's not an issue, you can just coil any extra pipe up somewhere between the burner and the valve.

How to remove black grease and smoke marksfrom brushed stainless


In order to avoid damage to the surface, my favorite is petrol (gasoline) to melt the muck and then a standard non abrasive detergent cleaner to get rid of the smell of petrol. Alternatively, you can try a proprietary oven cleaner (one that doesnt need the oven to be hot)

I have heard two things that could improve your stove. I had the same "bursting into flame" issue last weekend while camping. First, move the black handle back and forth a few times. That is supposed to clean the jet. Second, take the generator off and hit it with a blowtorch. That should clean out the deposites on the inside. Or you can purchase new generators (just make sure you get the correct one).
