We had our Kitchen floor tiled and the workers had to remove our oven and reconnect it afterwards. Now my oven hesitates to light and when it does it has a loud booming sound followed by a gas smell. Should I be concerned? If you are standing close enough you can actually feel it. I'm beginning to think that this could be a potentially dangerous oven. Please Help!

most likely you have a bad ignitor,pull out the racks and remove the floor to the stove,turn on the bake,if the ignitor glows but it takes more than 40 seconds for the flame to light you have a bad ignitor even though it glows and if it doesn't glow at all the ignitor is bad,also if the broil lights on top and the bake doesn't change out the ignitor.next time send the model number and i can look up your machine to help you better.
Hello, What is causing that is a weak oven igniter that is not strong enough to fully open the gas valve yet just open it a little,letting gas accumalate in the oven then finally the igniter gets to full strenght and all the gas explodes. By replacing the igniter with a new strong one it will stop that. The igniter is pretty easy to replace. Just remove the floor of the oven and the wing looking flame spreader, the screws that hold igniter to bake burner can be removed, and disconnect wiring.Then attach new igniter to burner reconnect wires and reinstall spreader and floor . The part number for igniter is WB13K21 it could be purchased at your local appliance parts store or online at; repairclinic.com searspartsdirect.com apwagner.com appliancepartspros.com apdepot.com
I hope i have been able to help you fix your oven, Gene
Hello, What you need to check is if the spark is strong at the bake burner.To do that remove the oven floor and the flame spreader under the oven floor, set the oven to bake and look for a good bright spark. If the spark is good the bake burner needs to be replaced,if it's a weak spark the electrode(spark Plug) will be needed. The part numbers are
Bake burner 8054077 Electrode 8054129 They could be purchased at your local appliance parts store or online at; searspartsdirect.com apdepot.com repairclinic.com assuredparts.com applianceparspros.com
