Westinghouse oven no gas but supply and power is good


Your subject line says dryer but the text is about a stove.... This applies to your stove. Check to see if something fell down the back of your stove, there usually is a gas shut off at the floor that may have been inadvertently turned off. You may have to pull out the stove slightly, to see behind the stove.

Oven will not ignite underneath, no gas seems to be flowing and if left on long enough it smells like gas, stove top works


Hello,

The reason your eventually are smelling gas yet the oven will not light is because of a extremly weak igniter for the oven,its not drawing enough power to open the gas valve. By replacing the igniter it will quickly open and no gas smell.

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

Oven will not light but smell gas


i think you probably have a weak ignitor. does the ignitor glow orange?
if it does, or i should say when it does, just tap lightly on the gas valve and see if that causes the gas to flow into the burner and then light.
you can use the handle of a screwdriver to tap with and it wont need to much force.
if this does work, then just replace the ignitor. when they get weak they will glow, but wont draw enough current thru the gas valve to allow it to open. your valve does get voltage but it opens when enough current draw opens the bi-metal portion of the valve to allow gas to flow.

Smelling gas at when stove is in prelight then going away


Welcome tkrogers,

You said,smelling gas at when stove is in Pre-light then going away.

In some stoves this is normal as long as it is a slight smell and it goes away when the stove or oven ignites.
You know gas really has no smell, but this smell is added for our safety!!
What is the Make,year ,and Model number of your range?

The gas must start somewhere until the flame ignites it.
So we smell a slight smell of gas until it burns.

Thanks,
Huuum
Please remember to lave a solved rating before you leave.
