Question about Maytag 30 in. Admiral LGC1330 Gas Cooktop

1 Answer

The smell of gas

I am having a problem with my gas cooktop. Ever since we installed it yesterday, it smells like gas. We checked for leaks with the soapy water, but it won't go away. Is this normal for a while? What should I do? I have the 36" inch model that has the same problem. I smeel gas after leaving the shut off valve open for more than 10 minutes. It is not leaking from any of the connection. COnfirmed with soap test. It smells like it comes from one of the burners.

I have the drop in Jade 5 burner cooktop. for the first time, I noticed a significant gas smell when I light any of the burners. we cant figure out the problem since the cootkop is functioning fine, but...

All gas burners will put off a gas Oder when lit, if you go away for a while and come back home and smell gas, you should turn off the gas and call the gas company

Slight propane leak in JDC8536

gas is not in the diy domain as it is more deadly than electricity
call in a gas fitter who will have a gas sniffer to determine the exact position of the leak and carry out the repair
by the time you can smell the gas , it is already at the explosive mix with the air

The smell of gas

call for service immediatly. dont ever mess with a possible gas leak. it is more than likely a slow leak at the shutoff or the safty valve. your local repair company should have a combustible gas detector. to pin point the leak.
