No flame


when this happens it is usually because of a faulty flame/gas safety valve.

The oven leaks gas fumes into the house and will "blow up" if not opened every 30 minutes. it forgotten and left on for an hour, it may blow out from under. This oven was converted from natural...


incorrect conversion- valves to large - gas should not leak at all- should only FLOW when in use- TURN OFF GAS TO STOVE- EXTREME FIRE HAZARD

I have an ES340 gas self cleaning oven. I smell gas when I open the oven door. I checked all the connections in the back and the ones behind the back panel, and none are leaking. Are there connections...


Hello tds. It is not uncommon to smell gas when you open an oven door. That said, if the amount of gas you smell is stronger than it used to be call your gas company. They will send out a technician, free of charge, to check your stove. Joe

Thanks for choosing Fixya!

Oven takes 40 minutes to preheat strong gas smell and then will make a loud bang at times have stopped using it


I think you may indeed have a leaking connection fitting, inside the Oven.
Below is your service manual, inside you will find troubleshooting steps to assist you to troubleshoot and hopefully remedy your issue.

However, in my professional opinion, I think, for safety reasons you should call a gasfitter and get them to look at your problem, it may need no more than a "lick of sealing, thread tape' but also it may not be. One shouldn't take chances when dealing with Gas. You did the right thing in turning it Off and not using it.

Pilot light is lit both on oven and stove top... previous user says to turn on gas and lite "sensor" or "2nd pilot" it stays lit as long as oven knob is on but oven burner does not light. "sensor" goes out...


On standing pilot ovens the maker uses a safety device to kill the gas in case the pilot blows out. As long as the pilot is lit the gas safety magnet hold the gas flap open inside the safety valve.To save energy the pilot has 2 flames. The standby pilot keeps the cooper/nickel probe/sensor warm so the oven will light faster, the 2nd pilot is much larger, only appears when the oven control is turned on and this is what opens that valve. So when you turn the oven knob on the gas leaves the control and goes downtown to burner land. If that pilot is lit and that slow opening flap inside that valve is open, then the gas will enter the burner tube and ignite when it hits the pilot. Pretty slick ain't it? So what can go wrong? With age the flap inside the safety valve will wear out, get weak, work a little, then take forever to light and eventually just goes bye bye. When you get ready to replace the valve it ain't gonna be adjusted exactamundo, you gotta tweak it. To do so after bubble testing for leaks and lighting the pilot you turn it on and observe the flames. It needs to be not more than half way up the flame spreader. If it is to small of a flame it will take forever to bake even a pie shell, if it is too much their could be burned bottom and in some cases fire hazards. OOPs.

Oven - Very bad gas smell


Very Dangerous! turn off supply to appliance, supply ventalation and call service tech. If you are very familiar with gas appliances and know what you are doing then you can try to locate the leak using soapy water or leak detector liquid. make sure all flames and other possible sources of ignition have been eliminated. Keep room well ventilated. Spray leack detector on all fittings and look for leaks replace or tighten parts as needed. This responce is asuming you have not blown up already, seriously dangerous situation you have there.

Gas leak from oven


Sounds like the ignitor is weak and needs to be replaced. How old is the oven and what is the model # from the sticker on oven?
