    There is a gas smell when you oepn the oven door after cooking. GE came out and replaced some nuts under the oven. No leak was detected anymore. Just smelt gas the day after using the oven. Is this typical for a gas oven?

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.

Oven igniter works but oven doesnt lite. Strong smell of gas also. Stovetop works fine. Whats wrong!!!?


replace the ignitor,even though trhe ignitor glows orange its getting weak and cant pas enough current to open the gas valve to supply enough gas to fire the venturi tube,so it supplies gas but wont ignite this is where your odor is coming from

Oven will not ignite underneath, no gas seems to be flowing and if left on long enough it smells like gas, stove top works


Hello,

The reason your eventually are smelling gas yet the oven will not light is because of a extremly weak igniter for the oven,its not drawing enough power to open the gas valve. By replacing the igniter it will quickly open and no gas smell.

Hello tds. It is not uncommon to smell gas when you open an oven door. That said, if the amount of gas you smell is stronger than it used to be call your gas company. They will send out a technician, free of charge, to check your stove. Joe

Where is the pilot light for the oven?


Look inside the oven where the burners come into the oven. Right at that point you should find the pilot light. Here is where you light the pilot.If you smell a lot of gas when you open the door, turn off the gas altogether and let it dissipate. Then turn ot on and then you can light it.

Matag gas oven won't or is slow in comming up to temperature.


Hello and welcome to FixYA!
You are 100% correct in your suspicion that the oven ignitor is at fault. If you want to know "for certain" you can check that ignitor in circuit using an amprobe and looking for at least 2.9 amps, however I would say all you need do is replace that ignitor and your oven should return to proper operation. The gas smell is a result of an ignitor being on the "ragged edge" of being able to open the warp switch in the gas valve. Instead of opening up, it is "burping" the valve enough for you to smell gas. Your part number is a
12400035 and sells for around $50 or so, depending where you buy it.
Thanks for using the FixYA! service!
