Depending on how vented and the weather you could be getting some wafting, if concerned with a leak should contact your gas service person to come check. Make sure your vent isnt blocked. But I have found with most units in winter especially you can get the occasional smell due to wind directions , humidity. But please if over concearned get someone to check.

Small gas leak smelled inside house from GE Adora (just 2 yrs old). Have moved stove and have put soapy water with paint brush on every connection including regulator...don't see any leak evidence...any...


You may have to use dish soap straight, do not use the brush. I use an old spray bottle and dish soap straight, not watered down, to find my leaks. Gas is a very low psi. Soapy water will not bubble up. It can and will just be pushed out of the way. Do not forget any other gas appliances in the house, hot water heater, stove, any thing that uses gas. Please check all. Recheck your stove and even any connections inside, on/off valve etc. Hope this helps Fixya up.

My GE XL44 Gas Range (Model JGBP34 GEP 1A) control


If you like the stove and it in good shape otherwise, have it fixed. The parts are still available. The stove in good used condition (without leak) is probably worth $75.00. May cost that much to repair it. Will cost approximately $450.00 to replace it with equal range. If it's a standing pilot model (no electricity needed) they are unavailable and your new range will require power to use the oven. Hope this helps.

If it was used with LP and you are using it with natural, did you change everthing back over to natural gas settings? Orfices, regulator cap, and oven orfice?
It could be a pressure issue.
Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Gas smell during startup of GE hot water heater


yes, provided there is no excessive build up. The gas and air mix must be right before the mixture will ignit. a household stove will do this each time it's turned on. That's why yhe igniter sparkk hits about three times before it lights. proper venting will confine any fumes to the cimbustion chamber to be carried out the exhaust. If the odor is strong then have the appliance checked for safety sake.

Oven does not heat. Broiler and stove work. NO gas smell.


could be the oven thermostat, get a plumber/heating engineer out, but make sure you can trust him, cause he could try and say u need a new cooker when it MIGHT only be a new oven thermostat.
