GE Model JGSP44AEV1AA When the oven tries to restart after reaching the initial temperature we experience a strong gas smell. I have replaced the igniter without solving the problem. I have discovered that the oven will light within seconds if I leave the oven door cracked. What is the air flow design for this oven?

There is nothing fancy about how the gas controls work on this unit. Do all burners give you the same problem? If so, it could be a kinked service hose or a service valve that has been partly shut. If it is limited to a single burner or two, the valve may be gummed up and should be replaced.

th to replaceere is also an electronic ignitor in the back of the stove that sends the spark to the burners, if they light with a match , then I would check out the back for a little black box

Frigidaire range oven has a smell of gas and trouble reaching temperature


Hello - Once you have experienced a gas odor, I highly recommend turning the unit and the gas off if you can reach it. For safety and liability reasons we do not suggest that you troubleshoot this yourself any further and to contact a professional to move forward. However if you do so, try resetting the unit by either unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker off. Wait approximately two minutes and turn the range back on. Select a normal bake cycle and if issue continues then the unit may possibly have either a faulty element, bad communication error with the main control board, oven sensor, or mechanical thermostat. I strongly suggest contacting a professional to move forward accurately. They also usually warranty their labor just in case something else may turn out to be the root cause of your initial problem and it does work out better to your advantage.

Sometimes there is a stong smell of gas when the oven is used


The problem is usually the igniter not reaching the correct amp draw .When the igniter does not reach the correct amp draw it may allow the gas valve to partially open or not open at all. The igniters are inexpensive and easy to replace. There is a video at http://appliancehelponline.com/gasoventroubleshootvideo.html this will walk you thru the correct procedure for performing this test. It may be a different model but the testing will be the same.You can also enter your model # for diagrams and illustrations of your specific model. Not all models are available. All parts come with installation instructions.

When I first turn on the oven I can smell gas. This just started so I don't that it is a leak at a gas line connection poin. It must have something to do with an internal valve.


Have the Glow bar ignition, thermocouple and gas regulator valve checked. It is not un-common for some gas smell as the Glowbar heats the thermocouple bulb.
This in turn when reaching the correct temperature activates the gas regulator. If the Glow bar is not providing ignition quick enough. More gas can be released before combustion is initiated. This extra can be the smell you are experiencing now.

Best to have the unit serviced by a qualified technician to be safe.

Good luck Luck be safe!

WHIRLPOOL SUPER CAPACITY 465 MODEL: SF368LEPQ GAS SMELL


I will rarely say "call a professional" here because this is a do it yourself site right?

However, in this case, you obviously have a gas leak and/or malfunctioning gas valve.

Unless you have experience and training in detecting gas leaks I highly recommend shutting the gas off to the unit, ventilating the area, and calling a pro.

Gas can be very dangerous if handled improperly and a mere spark can "make house go kaboom".

If you are smelling it strong enough that you have to open windows, it is a potentially dangerous situation.

GE oven


Yup...I believe this may have been an issue with some GE models. I seem to remember a problem where some models had problems staying lit after preheating. The fix was replacing the oven thermostat. Now...the normal cycle for an oven lighting is just what you described. The glow igniter will glow first, followed by the gas valve opening, followed by ignition. Once the oven reaches optimum temperature it is normal for the gas to shut off and come back on to maintain oven temperature. However, if this is going on in a frequent fashion with the oven never getting warm, your guess is probably a correct one. Good luck to you.
