Oven - Very bad gas smell

Oven has a very bad odor of gas. Just started happening the other night. Checked the gas line and the back of the unit and nothing coming from there. The top burners work just fine. Most of the smell comes from the oven itself. Oven is only 1 yr old and just out of warranty.

Very Dangerous! turn off supply to appliance, supply ventalation and call service tech. If you are very familiar with gas appliances and know what you are doing then you can try to locate the leak using soapy water or leak detector liquid. make sure all flames and other possible sources of ignition have been eliminated. Keep room well ventilated. Spray leack detector on all fittings and look for leaks replace or tighten parts as needed. This responce is asuming you have not blown up already, seriously dangerous situation you have there.

Strong gas odor only when oven is in operation?


If you're talking about the acrid smell immediately after starting the oven, that's aldehyde gas, a byproduct of cold gas combustion where the flame contacts the cold metal oven surfaces. That smell should disappear within the first minute or two, and it's entirely normal for a gas oven. If you're talking instead about the smell of fuel gas, then your burner may need to be adjusted; it may be running much too "rich".

This just happened over night the oven is on but there is a bad gas smell when it is in use. There is a hissing noise too.this oven runs on propane


Hello,
When the burner is burning, are both sides of the burner lit and is it lit all the way down the burner? If it is and you are still smelling gas you should not use the oven until you have it serviced, so you do not have an explosion. Propane is heavier than air, and will settle in low areas, so smell low by the floor around the oven before you light it to make sure you don't have a leak first. To be safe until then, close the shutoff valve on the gas line at the appliance until you get it looked at and fixed. Douglas

When I first turn on the oven I can smell gas. This just started so I don't that it is a leak at a gas line connection poin. It must have something to do with an internal valve.


Have the Glow bar ignition, thermocouple and gas regulator valve checked. It is not un-common for some gas smell as the Glowbar heats the thermocouple bulb.
This in turn when reaching the correct temperature activates the gas regulator. If the Glow bar is not providing ignition quick enough. More gas can be released before combustion is initiated. This extra can be the smell you are experiencing now.

Best to have the unit serviced by a qualified technician to be safe.

Good luck Luck be safe!

When I turned on my frigidaire oven today I smelled a strong odor of gas, I never smelled that before. The oven is about 6 years old.


Have it checked immediately for a leaking gas line in your oven. The situation is very dangerous, gas accu-
mulation can explode and cause fire. Get is touch
for a technician immediately.

Gas Odor coming from oven


The reason you can't smell it when the oven is on is because the gas is being ignited. DO NOT USE YOUR STOVE until you get this fixed by a gas fitter. You have a gas leak, which is either a loose fitting or faulty valve or line.

Call your appliance dealer IMMEDIATELY or you could have an explosion!!!!

you most likely have a bad oven ignitor...if you see an orange glow under the oven panel that is your ignitor trying to come on....but if it is weak it will not open the gas valve.....acess the ignitor and replace it

Gas smell at start up


Be sure that the igniter has a good ground. I mean make sure you clean it well. Be sure its fastened well. And of course that it is close enough to burner. Air flow in building can also hinder lighting.
