Re: gas oven

The symptoms you describe point to a cracked or blown out burner. If you can see the flame on the burner the flames should be blue and even in size.

When i use my oven ,my eyes and nose burns . why ?


I'm assuming you have a gas oven.

You may have a sensitivity to combustion by products like CO2 (carbon dioxide) or CO (Carbon Monoxide) that are produced when the oven operates or there could be a malfunction with the oven. You didn't specify a make or model, but it's important to keep the oven clean as well.

In either case, crack a nearby window when using the oven if you have one and see if that helps. Some newer homes are so tight that the oven may not have enough fresh air and the by product gasses are building up.

If the condition persists, you may want to call a repair service to check the appliance. Also, all homes should be equipped with combination smoke and carbon monoxide detectors. The CO detector will alarm if the gas concentration starts to build up, signaling a potentially dangerous situation.

My mother has a hotpoint gas stove and when baking the oven has produced a lot of black carbon all over the oven...also the burners seem to be doing this also

the pores of the burner have been blocked by some food particles or the pores have not been cleaned since longtime,so try to remove the blockage thats creating fumes of the carbon and also try to maintain the time and temprature depending on the food u make or bake.this may help to prevent such problems in future. wish u success.

Have the oven burner gas stove emits too much carbon dioxsid what is the solution: Change the burner? Or give a pretty clean? Thanks

This is an extremely dangerous problem that should not occur. There has been a product recall for models of electrolux and kenmore's manufactured in Canada, so you should check the US Consumer products safety commission.

You should not use your oven for heat because it can also use up all the oxygen in a well insulated environment. You should never cover the bottom of the oven with foil. It blocks vents and causes Carbon monoxide to buildup.

If that is not the case, you should really have a qualified technician clean and tune the oven, because if you are right and your oven is emitting enough carbon monoxide to trigger an alarm, you can wind up dead.

Tuning can involve adjusting gas flow and checking regulators. If you still want to attempt a solution, check the top and bottom burners. Make sure the are in good visual shape and use a small pipe cleaner, paper clip or some other wire that will not break off inside the jet holes.

Clean the oven and check your manual to make sure that it does not require a vent.

Fire companies will often help out with finding the source of carbon monoxide, but they do not want people to air out or clean the offending area or appliance. Please take care, and thank you for your question.

Oven smells like gas when on

If the oven is new and has never been used, it should be cured before using. There is a curing your oven page in all manuals before use. You have to wash and burn off all the chemicals used in making the thing. Are u sure it sets off the smoke alarm and not the carbon monoxide alarm. Be careful some alarms are equipped with both now a days and people cant tell the difference. Get your gas company there to check it. Carbon monoxide is undetectable to the nose and is deadly so please be very careful! If there is smoke and u have cured ur oven then there maybe some old food on the burner, remove the bottom plate and check. If there is no smoke and no food on the burner then u need to change ur ignitor. It maybe old, cracked or both. Typical repair cost on high end range is 300 - 400 for 1 ignitor. Good luck. And I urge u to see if it is Carbon Monoxide!

Whirpool gas range - propane gas not sure oven is working right

First, the flame should be blue and without much visible yellow. You need to give the gas tube a good cleaning to get out any soot buildup and any partial obstuctions that might be causing the problem. Since you started with a yellow flame and soot, you need to get the burner tubes clean to see if you have resolved the problem after adjusting the regulator and burner valve(s).

You might need to install a different regulator to match the pressure of your gas supply source, as regulators have a specific working range of inlet (supply gas pressure) that they can operate properly at to "regulate" the supply pressure to the stove's needed pressure.

Check your manual and the installation guide to verify what the gas inlet pressure requirements are and check with your gas supplier to see what they are providing you.

To your 2nd question, yes, the gas will cycle on and off when you are using the oven, since the thermostat will call for more heat when needed and shut off the gas/flame once the temperature you set the control at, has been reached. The cycling is a result of the oven trying to maintain the desired temperature for baking.

One reason that you can smell gas when the oven is being used, is because all gas ovens have a surface vent to allow excess heat to escape from the oven compartment, however you should not be smelling raw gas (actually you're smelling the "rotten egg" additive that's put in the gas) all the time, since when the oven is turned on, a small electric ignitor is heated up VERY HOT glowing bright orange inside the oven compartment. Once it's hot enough a sensor opens the gas valve and lets gas into the burner tube to be ignited instantly by the VERY HOT ignitor. It is rare to smell raw gas with this system, but sometimes you'll get a stronger "rotten egg" smell at different times due to the gas company and their system, etc.

As to the gas smell, you should NOT be smelling gas every time the oven cycles on when baking, as a normal ongoing occurrence. During the first few uses, it is normal to smell some gas, but this should go away after a couple of uses. If it doesn't, you should look to make sure the regulator and oven controls are PROPERLY configured and set - Since you've already fiddled with these, it's probably a good idea to have someone from your gas company (or a gas appliance tech) come out and do this. Improper settings can cause some serious problems.

Hope this helps!

Carbon monoxide leak from back burner on stove

You need to get the control valve for that burner replaced. It's at the front of the stove.

When i increase the temperature control the oven soots excessive

Check your oven for flame color; what you are describing could be deadly. It is possible that you have an air vent clogged or blocked causing the flame to burn yellow indicating incomplete combustion and possible source of carbon monoxide. This is very dangerous and I would strongly recommend you purchase a carbon monoxide detector. We have one on the main floor and one in our basement. 
A defective gas floor furnace in a home in a neighboring town 2 days ago put three children and two adults to sleep during the day and a 64 year-old man died of the fumes. The others are recovering but are all hospitalized. The family moved to Clay, WV from New Mexico only a week ago.

How clean oven??

  1. Buy an empty spray bottle and some baking soda.
    You'll find that baking soda is cheap -- especially if you buy in bulk.
  2. Using a funnel, place 3 heaping teaspoons of baking soda into the spray bottle.
    If the baking soda clogs the funnel, unclog it with water.
  3. Wash the baking soda into the spray bottle by running water into the funnel.
    Fill the bottle with water. After the bottle fills, you'll notice undissolved baking soda that has settled at the bottom of the bottle.
  4. Shake the spray bottle so that all the baking soda dissolves in the water.
    Unless all the baking soda is fully dissolved, some of it gets left behind in the bottom of the bottle as a residue.
  5. When the oven is cold, spray the baking soda and water solution on to the black stuff. Do this one or more times a day.
    It is important to work on a cold oven for two reasons:
    • Safety. You can't burn your hands if the oven is cold.
    • Containment. You'll get baking soda all over the house if you start with a hot oven. I know. I've done it.
      Starting with a cold oven solves the problem.
  6. Use your oven as you normally would. Keep spraying wet baking soda on to the top and sides of the interior of the oven between meals.
    Wet baking soda will break up the carbon sticking to the sides of the oven. Keep spraying baking soda on to the black stuff between meals until it is all gone.
    Don't worry about getting baking soda in your food. Baking soda is one of the prime ingredients of many recipes such as corn bread. It is safe to add it to your food should you do so inadvertently.
    Using this technique, the black carbon that was stuck to the sides of your oven will flow to the floor of your oven and settle there as a black carbon powder that can be wiped away.
    Your oven will look like a mess while this is in process. Choose a good time to do this.
  7. At your convenience, when the oven is cold, wipe your oven with a damp cloth.
    Eventually, you will have to wipe down your whole oven with a damp cloth. The black carbon and baking soda will will settle together on the bottom of your oven. Both are easily removed with a damp cloth.
    In theory, you will have to apply the spray bottle many times but you should only have to wipe down your oven once. Try not to wipe down the oven prematurely as this removes the active ingredient that makes the whole thing work -- the baking soda.
    Important! Let the baking soda accumulate so that it can do its job.
  8. Repeat, repeat, repeat until all the black carbon is gone.

For caloric gas range, the bake function did not kick in after setting the temperature dail. Display window shows on but no gas burning. Temperature stays at 100 degrees.

Usually when an oven won't bake, it's because the bake igniter is weak or burned out. The igniter is a small, round or rectangular device, that's about 1 inch by 4 to 8 inches. It's near the burner itself.

The burner is the tube-type device the gas flows through before it's ignited. It has many small holes on the sides to let the gas, when ignited, form a long, low flame. If the igniter is weak, if it glows red but doesn't get hot enough, or if it's burned out, the gas doesn't flow to the burner and the burner won't ignite. If this is the problem, you may need to replace either the igniter or the gas safety valve. Usually the igniter is to blame.

Other causes Other reasons that your oven may not bake are:

  • The clock settings are incorrect (if you have timed baking or a self-cleaning oven).

  • The thermostat is defective.

  • The safety valve that prevents accidental gas flow is defective.

  • The selector switch is defective.
