I have a maytag gas stove model mgr5720adh When I use the oven during the preheat is fine it does take longer to preheat but when it maintaining the temp I start smelling gas.


Change the igniter the igniter is not getting hot enough to open the safety valve and what it does there's not enough heat on the igniter to ignite the flame of the burner

My Maytag Gas Oven MGR5750ADW preheats on certain temperatures and not others. For example it wont preheat at 350 degrees but will preheat at 380 degrees. At 350 we smell gas.


What you have is an ignition problem get this corrected before you experience a delayed ignition, the hot surface ignitor pulls enough amps 3-3.4 to power up and open the gas valve but ignition did not take place reason you smell gas don't know how old unit is ignitor may be weak good on draws 3-3.5 amps burner ports may be dirty or the bracket that the ignitor mounts too may have bowed away from the burner

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

I've had a Premier electric stove for a number of years and just today i'm noticing a smell coming from the oven that resembles gas while preheating and cooking. Any idea why?


Either the ignitor is wearing out and not drawing enough amperage to open the gas valve properly, or the gas valve is not working properly. You can not tell a weak ignitor by looking at it, you need a amp clamp to test.

Do not recommend using any appliance with a gas smell coming from it.
If you are smelling any type of gas when not on, turn off gas to appliance completely.

You state this as a electric stove, taking this to mean electric ignitors and not pilots............

CRG9700 - OVEN TEMPERATURE BIG FLUCTUATIONS


biggest issue with any gas oven is a faulty ignitor, not maintaining oven temp, too long to preheat, taking too long to cook, possible slight gas smell during operation, all signs of a bad ( or going bad) ignitor

GE gas stove


sounds like a bad bake ignitor(uneven heat,long cook times, long preheat times, perhaps even gas smell while cooking)as far as the heat from under the clock assy thats the normal vent( nedds to release heat somewhere, not a problem
