Gas range makes noise

I have a gas range that makes loud whooshing sound before it will light. I have replaced the igniter so that is brand new. I turn on the oven and wait sometimes 20 mins or more before it finally lights and that's when there is a loud whoosh sound but never the smell of gas leaking. I have been afraid to use it for almost a year now so I don't know if its a good idea to try and turn it on. Any advice would be great!

SOURCE: gas leaks into oven when i turn on the broiler

You have what we called delay ignition. may be the broiler ignitor too far away from broiler, partially clogged broiler orifice or bad ignitor, I"ll check the Amperage on the ignitor, it should draw above 3 AMPs, if not, then I'll change the ignitor first then check the orifice. Have fun.

SOURCE: upper oven makes loud whooshing noise sometimes ,

Hi,
The gas is not the problem... the ignitor is...
The gas is building up in there before it ignites because the ignitor is not working properly...
Replace the igniotr and the problem will go away..

Viking VGIC oven burners ignite but cycle off repeatedly temperature rarely gets to 300 after 30 minutes. If igniters ignite is problem elsewhere - like bad bi-metal valve? Range and broiler work OK,


There is a sensor that detects the oven temperature, it must be defective and sending a signal that oven is at set temperature and this shuts off the gas valve.

I was using my oven when all of a sudden there was a loud whoosh sound. Since I use propane I immediately turned off the oven.


Hi, it sounds like you may have a gas leak some where else on your oven probably from the supply pipe . It looks like it is building up then its been ignited so you get a whoosh. Best get it checked out.

My Kenmore gas range 2274233 makes a loud noise when the oven is turned on.


Since it is new--have them bring you a new one. That should have been fixed before shipment

Brand new Whirlpool WFG371LVS Range has a burner that is leaking and when it comes on, it's huge. If you turn on the other burners when it's on, the huge flame gets smaller with every burner you...


It seems to me that espically if brand new and this happened th efirst time you used it,the gas pressure regulator was set for propane at the factory instead of natural gas

as far as for the leak that valve needs to be replaced in warranty but the decreasing flame size is due to incorrect regulator setting

My oven makes a noise before it lights. A "whoosh"


That is common with gas since the gas fills the entire element before there is enough gas for the pilot to ignite. You have the same thing with outdoor gas grills.
