The ignition is not firing before the gas valve opens
have a gas technician check out the problem before you blow the kitchen apart

Strong gas odor only when oven is in operation?


If you're talking about the acrid smell immediately after starting the oven, that's aldehyde gas, a byproduct of cold gas combustion where the flame contacts the cold metal oven surfaces. That smell should disappear within the first minute or two, and it's entirely normal for a gas oven. If you're talking instead about the smell of fuel gas, then your burner may need to be adjusted; it may be running much too "rich".

Oven igniter works but oven doesnt lite. Strong smell of gas also. Stovetop works fine. Whats wrong!!!?


replace the ignitor,even though trhe ignitor glows orange its getting weak and cant pas enough current to open the gas valve to supply enough gas to fire the venturi tube,so it supplies gas but wont ignite this is where your odor is coming from

WE SHUT OFF THE GAS TO THIS STOVE SEVERAL WEEKS AGO AND ARE READY TO RELIGHT THE STOVE NOW. WE CAN NOT FIND THE MANUAL AS TO HOW TO DO THAT. WE ARE CONCERNED MAINLY ABOUT THE OVEN AS IT SAYS IT IS A...


You should be able to just open the gas ****. That will supply gas to the gas to the stove. Once you've opened the gas ****, wait about 60 seconds and turn on one of the burners. The electric ignition should work to ignite the gas and you'll have your flame. If you smell a strong odor of gas, DO NOT use the electric ignition until the gas odor diminishes. In other words, when you first smell gas, you can try lighting it. If the smell of gas becomes strong, you DO NOT want to light anything in the area because an accumulation of gas can lead to an explosion. Be very careful.
If this helps, please come back to Fixya and rate my suggestion.

When I turned on my frigidaire oven today I smelled a strong odor of gas, I never smelled that before. The oven is about 6 years old.


Have it checked immediately for a leaking gas line in your oven. The situation is very dangerous, gas accu-
mulation can explode and cause fire. Get is touch
for a technician immediately.

Gas smell coming from oven during preheat. once oven is warmed up, smell goes away. I have a Frigidaire FGF366EBC S/N VF6289284.What would cause this?


Typically, all gas operated appliances will get a "gas smell" from time to time. What you're really smelling is the odorant (rotten egg smell) that is added into both propane and natural gas, as these gases have no smell by themselves.

The smell will vary from normal to very strong as the "receipe" for how much ordorant is added into either your propane tanks or the gas supplied to your home. Typically, when tanks start getting low, the smell is more concentrated, while with piped natural gas, the smell can be very strong at different times, based on how and when the gas company adds odorant into the main supply lines.

Usually when a gas appliance is first turned on, the smell can be rather strong, until the gas ignites. So long as your oven is lighting properly, there is nothing to worry about.

However, if you're hearing a rather loud "whoosh" sound as the oven lights, it could be that your ignitor is getting weak and might need to be replaced. If you've got a weak ignitor, it could be allowing a little bit too much gas to build up in the oven compartment before it lights, hence the reason you're smelling the gas.

You can check for a weak ignitor by simply watching the oven when you start it, if the gas lights quickly, once the ignitor is glowing brightly and you've heard the "click" of the gas valve opening (in the oven), then everything is fine.

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

Gas Odor coming from oven


The reason you can't smell it when the oven is on is because the gas is being ignited. DO NOT USE YOUR STOVE until you get this fixed by a gas fitter. You have a gas leak, which is either a loose fitting or faulty valve or line.

Call your appliance dealer IMMEDIATELY or you could have an explosion!!!!
