Gas oven smell

My new gas oven smells funky when in use, like a factory coating or something is burning off. We have had it for six months and it still smells. It is not a natural gas smell. We have to open window while using the oven. Please help, its driving me crazy.

Re: gas oven smell

I have the same issue. I live in an apartment, and I had maintenance come by to check it out. They say that it is carbon (white, ashy) built up around the burners from where the gas is burning. They clean it, but then it comes back. I'm wondering what else it can be because I feel like death every time we use the oven. And I know, I shouldn't use it! Well, I like to cook, and I'm stuck in this crappy place until the end of my lease. I don't know what to do either. If my maintenance actually figures out the problem, I'll let you know.

Strong fumes from new frigidaire gas oven.what should i look for

If it smells like gas Shut the gas off outside call installer, or
gas company. If it doesn't smell like gas, most likely it's the "new smell" caused by the heat. If you have a kitchen vent fan turn it on. If it persists Call the installer or dealer. No action by them? call the mfg customer service number in your owner's manual. It's possible something was left in the oven burner area that shouldn't be there.

There seems to be to much smoke coming out of my oven it comes up through the burners , this oven is only 5 months old, I it's a gas oven and I hate using it, and I cook every night, but I hate this oven,...

Maybe isolation broke and something is burning? Does it smell burnt? If the smoke is coming out of the burners it seems like an isolation problem. My knowledge is very limited though, so good luck. Contact your store to ask if this is unusual or not.

Burning plastic smell

Hi, Sounds like something is wrong. Is this a gas or electric oven? Did you have to change settings from natural gas to lp?
Please let me know, I would like to try and help you.

Kitchenaid selectra oven range: Electrical smell

If this is a new range the odor is coming from the binder used to install the insulation in the range. You would need to put it through a self clean cycle of at least four hours to burn off this binder. I would suggest that you do it on a nice day when you are staying home and can open the windows as it will smell quite horrid for a while.

Gas oven smell

Have you checked the temperature with a hand held or stand alone thermometer? First thing I would do is get a cheap oven thermostat, set the oven to 200 and make sure the oven is not being controlled.

This smell, does it sour the flavor of whatever you are baking, broiling whatever?

Sounds to me the oven might be over temperature, if it checks out against another thermostat is there any breakin procedures in your manual or cd?

Check that out, next have you called the oem?


If that goes no where, get a mailing address, ,get a frozen pancake or waffle if it is sticking to the food, cook it, wrap it hot in plastic rap then aluminum foil and mail it to them.

Once they take a wiff of it you will get some relief,

I am concerned you might have some kind gas that could prove to be unhealthy, so get this dealt with, the three suggestions above should get you an answer.

Smelling gas at when stove is in prelight then going away

Welcome tkrogers,

You said,smelling gas at when stove is in Pre-light then going away.

In some stoves this is normal as long as it is a slight smell and it goes away when the stove or oven ignites.
You know gas really has no smell, but this smell is added for our safety!!
What is the Make,year ,and Model number of your range?

The gas must start somewhere until the flame ignites it.
So we smell a slight smell of gas until it burns.

Please remember to lave a solved rating before you leave.
