It 's very easy to fix, the oxygen vents need to be open on that burner, they are located as the burner meets the valve that supplies gas to it.

4 beeps with pauses for 2 year old carbon monoxide detector


I'm pretty sure that indicates an alarm. The pattern is referred to as "temporal 4" which is the alarm pattern for CO. Either your device is in a bad place or there is an intermittent CO leak which is exceeding the ppm (parts per million) threshold for a given time period. The instructions for the device will tell you what that number is. If you have more than one of these, I would try swapping them to determine if the problen is with the device or the location. Good luck!

Had customer with CO detector sounding quick double chirp about every five minutes. What is this?


This is not a beeping smoke detector. It is probably a CO detector that was installed by your alarm company. GE model 240-COE will give a double beep every 5.5 minutes when the device reaches end of life. Call your alarm company to have it replaced.

The detector has gone off two times within the last week. The detector reads "GAS" when it goes off. THe number the first time was 199 and yesterday is was 235. The first time I got out of the...


Propane is heavier than air so if the detector is mounted ABOVE the appliances that use it (or any tubing that brings the propane into the house) it (the propane) will NOT be detected, even if there is a leak. That said, the PRODUCTS OF COMBUSTION of a propane appliance will still contain carbon monoxide (CO) which is lighter than air and will be detected by a properly installed detector. If you continue to get alarms and readings that differ from each other, along with no error codes on the display, it sounds like the detector is really detecting something. If the fire department cannot identify a source, try calling the Kidde "Hotline" at 1-800-880-6788 and ask if they can recommend another agency in your area to check your premises. I don't think these units detect Radon but am not sure. If your dwelling is of relatively new construction, the problem can be complicated by the fact that there is less outside air infiltration to disperse any build-up of gas/radon/CO/etc. than is typical in older construction. *Disclaimer: I am not a lawyer, despite the handle.

Have the oven burner gas stove emits too much carbon dioxsid what is the solution: Change the burner? Or give a pretty clean? Thanks


This is an extremely dangerous problem that should not occur. There has been a product recall for models of electrolux and kenmore's manufactured in Canada, so you should check the US Consumer products safety commission. www.cpsc.gov.

You should not use your oven for heat because it can also use up all the oxygen in a well insulated environment. You should never cover the bottom of the oven with foil. It blocks vents and causes Carbon monoxide to buildup.

If that is not the case, you should really have a qualified technician clean and tune the oven, because if you are right and your oven is emitting enough carbon monoxide to trigger an alarm, you can wind up dead.

Tuning can involve adjusting gas flow and checking regulators. If you still want to attempt a solution, check the top and bottom burners. Make sure the are in good visual shape and use a small pipe cleaner, paper clip or some other wire that will not break off inside the jet holes.

Clean the oven and check your manual to make sure that it does not require a vent.

Fire companies will often help out with finding the source of carbon monoxide, but they do not want people to air out or clean the offending area or appliance. Please take care, and thank you for your question.

Oven smells like gas when on


If the oven is new and has never been used, it should be cured before using. There is a curing your oven page in all manuals before use. You have to wash and burn off all the chemicals used in making the thing. Are u sure it sets off the smoke alarm and not the carbon monoxide alarm. Be careful some alarms are equipped with both now a days and people cant tell the difference. Get your gas company there to check it. Carbon monoxide is undetectable to the nose and is deadly so please be very careful! If there is smoke and u have cured ur oven then there maybe some old food on the burner, remove the bottom plate and check. If there is no smoke and no food on the burner then u need to change ur ignitor. It maybe old, cracked or both. Typical repair cost on high end range is 300 - 400 for 1 ignitor. Good luck. And I urge u to see if it is Carbon Monoxide!

Carbon monoxide leak from back burner on stove


You need to get the control valve for that burner replaced. It's at the front of the stove.

Kitchen Aid Oven and Carbon Monoxide Leak


If you have Propane than any range will have to be properly converted to propane they are made for natural gas. Other than that gas ovens do emit quite a large amount of CO and new homes are built very air tight and any good CO detector may sense this. If you have a vent hood or hood/mwave combo and its vent is actually ran to the exterior it should aid in venting that CO. This is why the new dual fuel (gas cooktop, elec oven) are so popular. Hope this helps...
