The most common reason for that is that the oven ignitor is bad. Part number WB2X9154.

My galaxy range model 790.60012604. The oven do not heat up . The element is lite up but the oven burner do not flame up which leaves a gas smell.


You need a new igniter, it may glow, but is probably not drawing the exact amperage required to open the gas valve decisively... You should also check burner tube and orifice for spider webs or other obstructions... Kenmore Range Stove Oven Igniter 316489402

I have a kitchenaid gas stove model #KGRT607. The oven does not reach desired temperature and there is a smell of gas when oven is turned on.


I had what seems to be a similar problem with my range, which is a KitchenAid KGRT607HGL6. I'd turn it on, and sometimes it would light, sometimes not. If it didn't light, I'd start smelling gas and I'd have to ventilate the kitchen. If it did light, it took forever to heat up.

That said, I have just finished doing the things I'll describe below, and the oven appears to be operating correctly now. I'm not going to go as far as to say this will work for you, and I'm not even sure which step was the key (maybe it was a combination of everything), but I'll tell you what I did.

PLEASE be careful. Gas isn't something to be messed with. If you have any doubt, you're far better off calling a repairman than blowing the side of your house off, or worse, hurting yourself.

It might help to download this parts list, and refer to page 9, so you know which parts I'm talking about:
http://shared.whirlpoolcorp.com/assets/pdfs/literature/Repair%20Part%20List%20-%208187617.pdf

Here's what I did:

1. Removed the racks from the oven.
2. Removed the pan from the bottom of the oven (it just lifts out).
3. Removed the flame shield by taking out the 4 screws holding it down.
4. Turned on the oven, and saw that the element glowed, but that the gas took forever to ignite. When it did, the flames were weak, shooting out perhaps 1cm from the burner. NOTE: For whatever reason, if I opened and closed the oven door every 30 seconds or so, the oven would start. If I just left the door closed, no such luck. ANOTHER NOTE: If I started to smell gas while I was standing by the oven, I shut off the oven, opened some windows and tried again later. I'm not a fan of emergency rooms.
5. Shut the power off to the oven.
6. Unscrewed the ignitor from the bracket that holds it in place inside the oven at the back.
7. Wiped off the burner element (there was a little buildup, sort of like gray dust).
8. Unscrewed the bracket holding the burner to the oven, allowing the burner to be moved around (can't be entirely removed, just wiggled).
9. Removed the storage drawer from under the oven.
10. Using a hose attachment, vacuumed all around the area where the valve and regulator send gas up into the burner (about center, back under the oven). Look for a brass nut sticking up into the end of the burner tube. With the burner unscrewed from its bracket, you'll be able to lift the burner up a bit and vacuum around it a little better.
11. Reattached the burner and ignitor to the bracket inside the oven.
12. Turned the power back on to the oven.

Then I turned the oven back on, and the ignitor glowed for 30-60 seconds and then the gas kicked on with much more flow than before, (core flame cones about 1.5 cm long with more even flame out beyond the cores) and the oven heated up immediately. I'll replace the flame shield, oven pan and racks when it cools back down.

My guess is that there was something (lint, cobweb, dust bunny, who knows) partially blocking the gas flow into the burner tube.

One other thing I did after the oven seemed to be working was to adjust the air shutter at the base of the burner tube, right where it meets that brass nut under the oven. I got that from Installation Step number 28 (page 6) on the following PDF:
http://shared.whirlpoolcorp.com/assets/pdfs/literature/Installation%20Instructions%20-%209755235.pdf

Like I said, I don't know if my solution will work for you. Try it at your own risk, and DON'T DO ANYTHING BUT SHUT OFF THE OVEN IF YOU SMELL GAS. :)

Whirpool gas range - propane gas not sure oven is working right


First, the flame should be blue and without much visible yellow. You need to give the gas tube a good cleaning to get out any soot buildup and any partial obstuctions that might be causing the problem. Since you started with a yellow flame and soot, you need to get the burner tubes clean to see if you have resolved the problem after adjusting the regulator and burner valve(s).

You might need to install a different regulator to match the pressure of your gas supply source, as regulators have a specific working range of inlet (supply gas pressure) that they can operate properly at to "regulate" the supply pressure to the stove's needed pressure.

Check your manual and the installation guide to verify what the gas inlet pressure requirements are and check with your gas supplier to see what they are providing you.

To your 2nd question, yes, the gas will cycle on and off when you are using the oven, since the thermostat will call for more heat when needed and shut off the gas/flame once the temperature you set the control at, has been reached. The cycling is a result of the oven trying to maintain the desired temperature for baking.

One reason that you can smell gas when the oven is being used, is because all gas ovens have a surface vent to allow excess heat to escape from the oven compartment, however you should not be smelling raw gas (actually you're smelling the "rotten egg" additive that's put in the gas) all the time, since when the oven is turned on, a small electric ignitor is heated up VERY HOT glowing bright orange inside the oven compartment. Once it's hot enough a sensor opens the gas valve and lets gas into the burner tube to be ignited instantly by the VERY HOT ignitor. It is rare to smell raw gas with this system, but sometimes you'll get a stronger "rotten egg" smell at different times due to the gas company and their system, etc.

As to the gas smell, you should NOT be smelling gas every time the oven cycles on when baking, as a normal ongoing occurrence. During the first few uses, it is normal to smell some gas, but this should go away after a couple of uses. If it doesn't, you should look to make sure the regulator and oven controls are PROPERLY configured and set - Since you've already fiddled with these, it's probably a good idea to have someone from your gas company (or a gas appliance tech) come out and do this. Improper settings can cause some serious problems.

Hope this helps!

Magic chef oven pilot light out


Hi, If the oven has a standing pilot too, Open the bottom door and locate the main burner. Follow the burner toward the rear of the oven and there will be a flame switch attatched to the burner. Hold the flame near the flame switch and the gas should ignite.
Some model do not have a standing pilot in the oven. Please get me your model number off the label located around the opening of the lower door so I can look this up and instruct you better.

Burner flame shuts off during use and then you smell gas


all ovens, when they reach temperature they go off and on to kip the temperature, but if you smell gas the oven ignitor needs replacing, the ignitor gets red hot to ignite the burner ,but when ignitor does not get hot enough, it will have a delayed, that's the reason you smell gas.

Constant gas smell. had PG&E come and check. The determined the leak is coming from the stove somewhere, not from the gas line


i have a 2 year old stove, and i smell the gas every time i walk by it, i when on a mission to find it, and it was coming from the safety valve in side the oven, right where the burner sits on. open the oven door when all the house doors and windows are close and smell it and check if is coming from the in side of the oven, not all gas leaks are from the same place, that's like a hands on job, to find a gas leak. you can also check every valve with some soupy water this are the ones that suplie gas to the burners.

Ge xl44 range gas smell


it's the safety valve, it's bypassing the gas. for you to put soup in there you will have to remove the oven burner. and put the soup on the tip of the orifice that's where the burner sits on.

Funny Smell


ALL YOUR FLAMES SHOULD BE CLEAN BLUE FLAMES WITH NO WHITE OR YELLOW TIPS OR FLAMES !!!! YELLOW FLAME = DIRT OR PAINT? WHITE = LACK OF AIR SOUNDS LIKE YOUR STOVE IS NOT GETTING ENOUGH COMBUSTION AIR. INPROPER AIR ADJUSTMENTS OR LACK OF AIR WILL CAUSE A WHITE TIP ON THE FLAME ... THAT IS CARBON-MONIXIDE !!! A CLEAN BLUE FLAME EMITTS CARBON-DIOXIDE AND IS NORMAL. IF YOU USED AN AIR-GUN TO PAINT, CHANCES ARE YOUR BURNERS HAVE A SLIGHT COATING ON THEM AND HOPEFULLY WILL BURN OFF IN TIME. TRY OPENING ALL YOUR DOORS AND WINDOWS IN YOUR HOUSE ... AND TURN ALL BURNERS ON AND LET THEM BURN FOR AN HOUR. DO NOT LKEAVE SIGHT OF THE STOVE, BUT KEEP NEAR A OPEN WINDOW. NOTICE !!! MOST GAS COMPANIES WILL COME OUT AT NO CHARGE TO CHECK GAS, AND FOR CARBON-MONOXIDE.(C0) NOT (CO2).
