Question about GE Ovens

1 Answer

While using my LP gas oven I hear a "poof" sound like a flame going out or lighting after about 20 minutes of use and through out the whole time I have it on. About every 15-20 minutes. Yesterday it made this same sound and then a very loud noise (like a empty semi trailer coming down the highway) I turned off my oven and within a couple minutes the noise stopped. I turned it back on only to hear this noise again. I turned it off. This morning I had a very strong odor of gas. Turned off gas supply. Returned home this evening and turned it all on. The oven lights and no noise but still getting gas odor if the gas supply is on even with the oven off. Turned gas supply is off again.

    I would go with the appliance tech.

    Gas techs generally do not know appliance repair.
