Question about Maytag MGR5751AD Gas Kitchen Range

1 Answer

Oven gives off strong chemical smell when it is turned on.

The odor is not propane, which we use, it can only be decribed as if a plastic handle were melting. This happened once before in 2006. A service man replaced the ignitor. It solved the problem until now. A couple of weeks ago it started again and is so strong and toxic smelling we can't use it. If it is the ignitor again we wonder why it would go out again? We want to do the repair ourselves and save $200.00. It is a Magic Chef Self-Cleaning Gas Range With Electronic Control
Model Number CGR3742CDC
Serial Number 13575971AC
We purchased it October 16th 2002
Thank you for any help you can give us.

    I have had this range (Kitchen Aid Superba) for 9 years. Suddenly a strange smell comes from the oven door when using the oven. It's not coming from behind the unit, nor inside where the food is. It's from the door. It smells toxic or chemically or like plastic melting?????

Why is there a strong gas odor?


Suggest you turn off the gas supply immediately! and check for a poor connection or other cause. Do not attempt to light the pilot again until the cause of the leak has been found and repaired!

Gas smell coming from oven during preheat. once oven is warmed up, smell goes away. I have a Frigidaire FGF366EBC S/N VF6289284.What would cause this?


Typically, all gas operated appliances will get a "gas smell" from time to time. What you're really smelling is the odorant (rotten egg smell) that is added into both propane and natural gas, as these gases have no smell by themselves.

The smell will vary from normal to very strong as the "receipe" for how much ordorant is added into either your propane tanks or the gas supplied to your home. Typically, when tanks start getting low, the smell is more concentrated, while with piped natural gas, the smell can be very strong at different times, based on how and when the gas company adds odorant into the main supply lines.

Usually when a gas appliance is first turned on, the smell can be rather strong, until the gas ignites. So long as your oven is lighting properly, there is nothing to worry about.

However, if you're hearing a rather loud "whoosh" sound as the oven lights, it could be that your ignitor is getting weak and might need to be replaced. If you've got a weak ignitor, it could be allowing a little bit too much gas to build up in the oven compartment before it lights, hence the reason you're smelling the gas.

You can check for a weak ignitor by simply watching the oven when you start it, if the gas lights quickly, once the ignitor is glowing brightly and you've heard the "click" of the gas valve opening (in the oven), then everything is fine.

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

Chemical odor in freezer


can you verify the odor. Does the odor smell like burnt wire insulation or of that of burnt meat?

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.

Fridge has chemical smell


The smells are being pulled in through the air intake from the fridge from the chemicals they used on the floor. As the coating cures, the odor will end. As for the damage to your food and drinks? I would assume if the food tastes like the chemicals, I would avoid eatting them if you do not like the taste )

Plasma TV smell?


i had the same prob and thought it would burn off. It didn't after a month. Read the comments and tried the plug direct into wall socket plus i washed off the tv surface several times. Now no smell. Not sure which action cured the problem but i'm now happy. It was so bad i had to leave a window open and at times i would gag from the smell.
