Question about Ovens
MY WHIRLPOOL OVEN SMELLS GAS WHEN I USE THE BROIL OR BAKE.
THE SMELL IS SO STRONG THAT WE HAVE TO OPEN WINDOWS TO LET THE GAS GO OUT.
ANYBODY HAS HAD THIS ISSUE WITH THIS MODEL BEFORE OR ANY SUGGESTION ON RESOLVING IT WILL BE VERY MUSH APPRECIATED.
I will rarely say "call a professional" here because this is a do it yourself site right?
However, in this case, you obviously have a gas leak and/or malfunctioning gas valve.
Unless you have experience and training in detecting gas leaks I highly recommend shutting the gas off to the unit, ventilating the area, and calling a pro.
Gas can be very dangerous if handled improperly and a mere spark can "make house go kaboom".
If you are smelling it strong enough that you have to open windows, it is a potentially dangerous situation.
