SOURCE: Dryer smells of natural gas

Of course, this applies to gas dryers only. If you smell natural gas near your gas dryer, do not light matches or a lighter and don't operate electrical switches or anything that might spark, igniting an explosion. Immediately shut off the gas valve that serves the dryer. If the smell is mild, ventilate the area, wait until the air is clear, and re-light your pilot light. If the smell is strong, move everyone outside, leaving the doors open to ventilate the house. Turn off the gas supply valve --located by the gas meter on the gas inlet pipe-- by rotating the valve one quarter turn with an adjustable wrench. The valve's oblong stem should be perpendicular (at a right angle) to the inlet pipe to stop the flow of gas. Call your gas supplier (or the fire department) from a neighbor's phone or a cellular phone outside the house.

SOURCE: Dryer smells like gas

If you smell gas then there is a leak. The gas company came out and checked for a leak? Get them back in the morning before you open the room to check again. Eric

The limit switch is bad. most likely or the igniter. Does it give off a gas smell? If it is propane you can really smell it. But Natural Gas You may not.

Smell propane after I ran out and filled it back up> I replaced the regulator behind the stove but still smell propane


It is not uncommon to "smell" propane when you run out. Propane has an odorant called mecapitan added to it so you may detect it. When you get low or run out the mercapitan is typically in greater volume than the gas itself. Once you refill, you will also smell it temporarily. Check all connections for tightness and leaks, use a leak solution, and if all is well, start it up and monitor it. The odor should dissipate. If it does not, contact your local licensed propane technician.

Is it normal to get a faint gas smell when you hook up you'r gas dryer?


Absolutely. Your dryer runs on gas, and the gas kicks on when the heating element engages. It should be so faint though. If you smell it continuously then check your connections with soapy water, if their is a leak then shut off the gas and try using soap pipe dope, or teflon tape on the threads, then recheck. My guess is its the regulator near the heating element. Good luck

Converted to propane ,installed turned on seems to heat etc properly but smell gas


Hi,
Propane will often give you an odor even though you have done everything correctly...just spray all connection with soapy water to make sure you don't have any leaks...

It smells like something is burning smells like the gas is not burning very harsh odor that burns your eyes after a period of time


If it smells like an incomplete combustion smell, clean the burner first. I'm assuming it used to work and now doesn't? If it never worked correctly it may have the wrong jet in it. There is a jet for propane and one for natural gas. They do not interchange. If it smells like plastic burning, something probably got past the screen and fell into the burner.

ELECTRIC DRYER SMELL LIKE GAS


I would imagine that you are saying you have an electric dryer, but it smells like it has a gas leak correct? Let me ask one question, have you used any kind of paints or chemicals in your house lately? If you have painted anything (in any room as well), the fumes of that paint (or other chemical) will get into the elements, and produce that smell for sure. I have actually had customers give me the clothes they dried to smell them, and sure enough, it will get in the clothes for sure. If this isnt the case, be sure that you dont have a gas line behind the dryer that may be leaking, or if your hot water heater or furnace is gas, you dont have a leak there. If you do have gas coming into your home, and you havent painted, etc, call your gas or propane service provider IMMEDIATLY from another home or location and let them come out to be sure you dont have a hidden leak. Good Luck!!!!!

Gas smell


Fire Hazzard ? YES !! Sounds like the ignitor is taking too long to lite the gas. This lets the gas trickle into the machine. It is very important to the operation that the ignitor lite within 30 seconds on the first try and within 20 seconds thereafter.
