When I heat up the oven i get a strong smell of gas and it fills

When I preheat the oven I get a strong smell of gas that fills the kitchen. It goes away after a while but it shouldnt be happening. Is there anything I can do? Is there any valve I can turn down?

Ok, your mixture is to rich at this time. you will need to access the gas pressure regulator and adjust the air to fuel mixture. add a bit more air and back off of the fuel a bit. this will correct this issue.

depending on the model, this may or may not be an option so, if you cant access the regulator and the burner assembly is not accessible as well, i recommend calling the local gas utility service tech to preform this adjustment. This rich mixture is very dangerous for you and your family and i suggest that this be corrected asap for you safety.

Please rate and god bless:)

I have a Preway gas wall oven. Repair man said it was 55 years old. Guessing he couldn't know the exact age so late 50's/early 60's. It remains lit until about 3 or 4 minutes of preheating. Then the flame...


Try contacting them directly- I bet they might be able to help. Please don't take this into your own hands and attempt to rig something up, unless you're a professional. Especially when you're smelling gas during pre-heat. Here's their contact info:

Maytag gas oven takes a long time heat and smells of gas.


Important---if you smell gas--I'd be very very careful---could be your control valve or lines to it are malfunctioning or leaking. You might have to call in an expert repair person. How old is the oven? Some preliminary checks you might make are: Do you have a pilot lite or preheaters on the unit? If a pilot lite, make sure it is lit. An unlit pilot lite could sometimes give the smell of gas if malfunctioning. If so, there is is a procedure for lighting the pilot lite--check your user or installation manual. If you have pre-heaters make sure they are lighting up. Normally you have one for the top broiler burner, and one for the bottom oven burner. Check your preheater(s) by selecting either broiler or oven and visually checking to see if they are warming up. After 15 seconds or so, they should be turning bright red. You will see some light coming from them. Check one pre-burner at a time. If they do not come on quickly, shut off the associated valve. Again, be very, very careful with any buildup of gas. It could cause an explosion. At the least it could make you sick.

Gas stove When I turn on the oven, I smell gas,


This is more than likely the igniter to be sure you will need to do an amp draw on the igniter. To do this watch the video on troubleshooting a gas oven at www.appliancehelponline.com/servicemanual.html

PCS 127 does not heat up. Fan and preheat start.


We were able to unscrew the plate that sits behind the latch. 6 screws I believe. Look towards the middle back-right side you will see a red switch. Click it twice. Before we put plate back we tested oven and it worked!!! Hope this info will help you. Dacor oven has been a real problem and I'm a kitchen designer. Will never recommend Dacor anything to my clients after many oven issues.
