Tappan gas stove


Older gas stoves used a battery to ignite the flame but due to its age, I would get a hand held gas lighter.

Have a maytag Stove Model# mgr5729adw oven stopped working and just before it did smelled gas. ignitor looks to be good no cracks.


Our Maytag MGR5729ADW recently started having a problem. Whenever the oven was turned on gas would flow but did not ignite. My wife thought she was baking, but I walked in the kitchen and smell a heavy gas smell. Bad igniter or not the gas control valve should never open unless there is ignition. Had we turned on the oven and left the house, there would have been a major problem.
After a little more checking I will probably replace the igniter and the gas control valve. The parts are not cheap but neither is a house.

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............

When I use my gas range it smells like lighter fluid. Only when it is on, when off the odor goes away. It is a dual stove with electric oven and gas top. It started with one burner and now all 5 of them...


I am having the same problem with our stove in our new house. We just moved in and everytime I turn a burner on it smells like charcoal lighter fluid. Anyone know what this is?

Brand new gas stove. When oven is turned on there is a heavily gas smell.


There have been reports of gas ranges which have been installed with no leveling legs. (due to various reasons, like a new floor installed, but the counter tops stayed in the same place, so the range surface would be higher than the counter top if the legs were installed) In some cases, this results in an insufficient amount of combustion air for the oven. To test this, put the range up on a set of 3/4 inch or so blocks and try the oven again. Let me know how that went. Thanks.
