Question about GE Profile JGS968 Gas Kitchen Range
I smell gas in the oven or burner tops when gas supply is on. Each time we turn the gas supply off the smell goes away. Can't tell if the smell is coming from the burner or oven. We have changed the gas connection pipe as well; but no difference. We have spent enough on labor. We even broke the glass door in trying to take the stove out. Now can't afford to call a technician who will charge $100 for service call. If we can't find a cheap fix, then we will replace the stove with another one. Any idea where the gas might be coming from and how to fix it?

You got one or more of the burner switches wet. (It usually happens when you wash the knobs and water stays in the holes until you replace it on the shaft) If just water they may work after a day or two. try using a hair dryer, Keep it at least 12 inches away. If oven cleaner or other chemical got inside switches they may need to be replaced. If you can't dry them out. Disconnect the wires from all but one switch at a time and see which one/s need to be replaced. Sometimes the electric part of the switch can be seperated from the gas part and replaced seperately. DO NOT LEAVE THE STOVE PLUGGED IN until you fix this problem. There have been reports of fires started from this electrical problem. You could also burn out the spark ignightor. The fire problems have been mostly with Maytag/Jenn air products but my whirlpool blew a fuse and shot sparks when this happened to me. I just replacet the whole cooktop as my gas valves were one piece units and way to expensive to repair.
