Question about Kenmore Kitchen Ranges
I have a Kenmore 317B6035 (gas top stove) that seems to be leaking gas from outside and or inside the stove. I took all the lines coming up from the floor and flex line, shut off valve included and pipe doped them then tightened away. all seemed well. until I smelled gas again and called the gas company. They said I got a gas leak in the stove it seems. They were not sure, but suggested I shut off the gas and find the gas leak inside the stove. Hope there is an easy fix! LOL! hate to buy a new stove if all I need is an intenal gas line or pressure valve. Do I start taking it apart or is there a common problem with this brand or model that is known? Thanks!
I had this problem with my stove and had the regulator changed coming off the PROPANE tank.

SOURCE: constant gas smell. had PG&E
i have a 2 year old stove, and i smell the gas every time i walk by it, i when on a mission to find it, and it was coming from the safety valve in side the oven, right where the burner sits on. open the oven door when all the house doors and windows are close and smell it and check if is coming from the in side of the oven, not all gas leaks are from the same place, that's like a hands on job, to find a gas leak. you can also check every valve with some soupy water this are the ones that suplie gas to the burners.

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.

SOURCE: smell gas
On the bottom of the oven on the inside you will find an igniting bar. It is rectangular and usually just has one or two screws in it. This is your problem, switch it out and it will work fine.

Take a spray bottle and mix up a solution of strong dish soap and water... then spray down all of the connections in the gas line...with the gas turned on and the room well ventilated.
There will be bubbles from the leaking gas where the leak is. Proabably all you will need to do is tighten the connection that is leaking...
