Ceiling in electric oven is flaking...smells like propane

Hello, Our Kenmore Oven is about 2 years old. We noticed recently that was a smell coming out from the oven that smelled like natural gas or propane. It is an electric oven. I noticed the over day that the oven's ceiling is flaking off its finish. The flakes that come off from it are black on the outside and silver in the inside. We have noticed that it is getting in our food. Could this be the smell? Is this still under warranty and if not, shouldn't it be? Thanks, Todd

SOURCE: gas leak from oven

Sounds like the ignitor is weak and needs to be replaced. How old is the oven and what is the model # from the sticker on oven?

What you are smelling is the protective grease against rust or corrosion that came originally with your oven. the odor is normal if you are just purchase the oven.

Did this with me twice now on self clean. It's the thermostat on the back of the oven. Set to trip when oven gets too hot which happens with self clean. Part is about $45 - $50 and pretty simple to install. Hardest part is pulling the oven out of the wall.

SOURCE: Won't get hot, smells like gas

Most of these new fangled gas stove feature a silicone carbide ignitor to light the oven. Older stoves used a standing pilot light. As silicone carbide ignitor age a little they tend to get weak and fail to open the gas safety vave sufficiently enough for ignition. Take a look

It shouldn't be burning yellow and emitting soot at all;sounds like on of these possible causes-
(a)blocked burner airways(this can lead to yellow tipping and sooting on LPG powered appliances because insufficient air is getting through to the burner causing it;you can also get this effect on LPG barbecues say if dead insects or spiderwebs are in the burner pipes and airways after a period of storage),
(b)incorrect aeration being set when the burner was converted using LPG jets(too much gas and not enough air causing yellow flames/smells and sooting),
or (c) if you use propane cylinder gas a dicky or faulty regulator. I would get it looked at investigating all the possibilities I mention and taking action to correct this where necessary ie clearing the burner airways(if this is causing your problem), adjusting the aeration in the burners until you get a clear noiseless blue flame without any excessive yellow and sooting(but even after good adjustment you may find still get a very slight yellow tip without sooting at the top of the flame;this does happen with propane gas and there is a slight tendancy for this to happen more often with butane-butane tends to display very slight yellow tips on ignition increasing slightly as the burner warms up to full temperature) or if you use propane cylinder gas replacing the regulator if that is necessary.

EW30EW65SS Stainless Steel smells like burning electrical


Hello purrpplee - If the smell is coming out of the oven vent, more than likely it is something inside the oven that is creating the odor. Also, keep in mind that new cooking products can create a burning electrical odor when the bake and broil cycles are used as any residual coating or film on the oven liner and elements burns off. However, if odor increases consult a professional for an accurate diagnosis.

My oven isn't warming up


can you verify the ignitor is working (ie: can you hear it sparking)?
1. If no, and you are absolutely sure there is not a buildup of propane inside the oven (or house for that matter), you can try lighting it with a match. If that works, you need to replace/reposition your ignitor.
2. If yes, do you smell propane after trying to light the oven?
A. If yes, STOP and get it fixed..
B. If no,
1. Check to see that your propane tank isn't empty?
2. Verify the regulator supplying the oven with propane is actually sending gas to the over (might need a repairman for this)

Oven does not heat up, can smell gas.


You probably need an oven igniter, it's weak. Remove oven bottom and find caged unit attached to burner. Replace this oven igniter. The 2 wires can go either way.
