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

A tenant of ours is saying that their Maytag 27" single oven of: Every time we turn on the oven, there's a very strong gas smell for at least the first few minutes. The oven is heating ok.


you should probably go over or send someone ASAP to pull it out and check the lines are connected properly and haven't become damaged.

Could you imagine the lawsuit and property damage if their was a gas leak. This is the very reason gas has an odor added, it is the only warning sign of a potential leak and explosion.

I would take this very serious and give immediate attention.

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

Old frigidaire wall oven model RBE-94N emitting strong odor & not baking


Hello - From what you have described it sounds like the unit has faulty elements or could possibly be experiencing a wiring issue with the EOC. Try resetting the oven by unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker off. Wait approximately ten minutes and if it proves to be ineffective contact a professional to move forward accurately to properly diagnose the unit.

Gas odor and turns my pans black


Sometimes theres too much air in the line. A better connection from tank to stove may help, or your running low on propane. Try cleaning the burners with an old toothbrush removing built up sut. Your flame should burn blue, not yellow. Hope it helps!

Have a frigidaire gas stove has worked great for 6 years. Now we are getting a strong smell of gas when it is heating up or cooking. Have checked to make sure flame is on and it is. It also seams like it...


Try changing out the regulator for the stove. Does the flame seem weaker than it used to? If so, your regulator is probably going out and the gas you smell is the residual leaking out when the stove is on.

Frigidaire gas oven, 5 years old, oven pre-heat light comes on and stays on, oven gets warm but not up to temp (it was like this for about an hour), also smell gas when oven door is opened. Burners work...


I don't have a solution, but I was wondering if it constantly beeps until you press the start button? I am having the same problem with my oven preheating. Until we can figure out how to stop this we unplug it and shut the gas off when not in use.

Won't get hot, smells like gas


Most of these new fangled gas stove feature a silicone carbide ignitor to light the oven. Older stoves used a standing pilot light. As silicone carbide ignitor age a little they tend to get weak and fail to open the gas safety vave sufficiently enough for ignition. Take a look

Co smell during oven use


What you are smelling is the protective grease against rust or corrosion that came originally with your oven. the odor is normal if you are just purchase the oven.

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!!!!
