A faint gas odor near an appliance may indicate that the pilot light has gone out. If the appliance has a pilot light and the odor persists after relighting, exit immediately, leaving doors and windows open as you exit. Do not open windows if they're not already open. Do not use your telephone or cell phone, operate any appliance, light a match or turn light switches on or off. Call your local gas supplier from a neighboring location.
To answer the question fully, I'm gonna need the model number. Pull out the bottom drawer, and the model should be located on the side of the frame or on the drawer itself. Might even be behing the oven at the top, should be a metal plate that flips up.
Hi, The caloric ranges use diferent types of pilot igniters, to avoid any further delays, I suggest geting the model number off the stove usually located under the stove's top, you don't need any tools just lift the range top(like when you are going to clean it) the model number is located usually on a metal plate in between the burners, or if it's not there , it will be inside the oven around the door liner or the oven liner. When you do locate the model, just go to the repair clinic.com website and type in the model number, follow instruction after that. see the following figure it might help in locating the model number:
THE PILOT LIGHT IS IGNIGHTED BY AN ELECTRICAL WIRE THAT IS LOCATED BESIDE THE GAS JETS SO MAKE SURE THE ELECTRICAL IGNITION SYSTEM HAS POWER YOU NEED TO LOCATE THE WIRE AND FOLLOW IT TO FIND THE POWER SORCE THEN CONECT THE POWER SUPLY TO IT , GOOD COOKING.
Relighting Your Furnace's Pilot Light
Turn off the gas at the main valve at your utility box
Wait five to ten minutes for gas fumes to waft away
Get a long match—yes, a fireplace match, not a standard match
Set the gas valve on your furnace to "pilot"
Press the red button as you hold the match to the pilot valve
Keep pressing the red button for 30-60 seconds so the pilot can heat the
thermocouple. Release the button and see if the pilot remains lit
If pilot goes out, wait five to ten minutes and repeat the process
Once the pilot stays lit, turn the main gas valve back on
If the pilot light continues to go out, call a technician, who may need
to adjust or replace your thermocouple or adjust your pilot
Most ovens, unless they have an electric igniter (does it go tick tick tick when plugged in and turned on? If so, it has an electic ignition.) have a pilot light. In order to keep gas from flowing out, and to prevent a possible explosion when the pilot light has gotten put out, they have an electric thermocouple on them that shuts off the gas when it gets cold. Plug the cord back in, and relight your pilot light by holding the lighter (I recommend a fireplace match or bbq lighter, not a cigarette lighter to prevent singed knuckle hairs!) over the thermocouple for a couple of minutes.
I would take out the pilot and clean it up and see what happens,also look behind the unit and see if theres a gas regulator on the gas line,if so you will see a nut on it take it off with a pair of pliers and clean as well.that valve is actually the saftey valve,when the pilot lights the flame impinges on the thermocouple and that sends a millivolt back to that valve in order to open.if none of these resolve your problem i would replace the thermocouple first as this is a cheap part and easy to put on.if you need a part # i can give it to you.let me know.
