    Please indicate whether you are using Propane/LP or Natural gas to fire this oven.
    Did the oven ever operate correctly, and if so, has anything changed about it's installation?

    You indicated small explosion, but sometimes you will hear a rumble as the main burner lights. If you can watch the sequence of the lighting process, then we will have a better idea of what is happening.

    You should see the following sequence -

    1) Turn oven on
    2) See the glow plug glow, then a pilot.
    3) After a period of time, say 30-60 seconds, you may hear the gas valve open, then within 5 seconds, the main burner light. If, at this point in the sequence, the burner delays lighting, look to see if the pilot has somehow moved away from the main burner (bent bracket, screw came out, etc.). This is where the type of gas is important, as well as whether this unit is orificed for that specific type of gas.

Where is the problem -- in the oven burner or a stovetop burner?
If something got spilled on a burner ring and clogged the small holes, especially near the igniter, the burner will be slow to light. A stiff wire (small enough to fit) can be used to clean out the holes.

I have an ES340 gas self cleaning oven. I smell gas when I open the oven door. I checked all the connections in the back and the ones behind the back panel, and none are leaking. Are there connections...


Hello tds. It is not uncommon to smell gas when you open an oven door. That said, if the amount of gas you smell is stronger than it used to be call your gas company. They will send out a technician, free of charge, to check your stove. Joe

Thanks for choosing Fixya!

Gas stove When I turn on the oven, I smell gas,


This is more than likely the igniter to be sure you will need to do an amp draw on the igniter. To do this watch the video on troubleshooting a gas oven at www.appliancehelponline.com/servicemanual.html

I have a Frigidaire stove, when I turn the oven on the element lights up the smell of gas is real strong and then it lights and sounds like an explosion.


Hi,

Have you spilt anything on the burner? If so it will need to be cleaned,you will need to do the following (you need a pin, a matchstick, a drinking straw and a torch):

Make sure the oven control and the electric isolated is off please, remove the shelves, using the torch, inspect the oven burner, if there is no apparent blockage, disregard the following advice and seek the help of a 'Gas Safe' engineer in your area.

If it is blocked,using a pin or matchstick clean the holes in the burner, and use the drinking straw to blow the debris away. Move away from the burner, and see if it lights.

If this fails to work it could mean that the ignition is in the incorret position allowing for explosive ignition. See advice from a 'Gas Safe' qualified engineer.

I hope this helps.

Oven won't light on low settings (170), no trace gas smell.


Igniting bar located on the inside of the oven it is a rectangular piece with one or two screws. It is basically a heating element that also controls the gas. Change that ignitor and it should fix it no problem.
