Gas Range Oven Knob Area Gas Leak

We have an older mid 80's Whirlpool Gas Range. We suspected a gas leak and had the gas company out to confirm that there is a gas leak around the oven knob only. The four burner knobs did not set off the gas detecter wand when set next to them like it did for the oven knob. So I was wandering if there is a relatively easy inexpensive solution to stop the leak. I have not yet tried to open up the top of the stove to look at any of the mechanisms. Any ideas will be great. thanks

The only two things you can do are pull the core of the oven thermostat and re-grease it, but that could throw your temperature calibration way off. The other is to replace the thermostat. Either way, a calibration is probably a good idea.

GE Range - oven flames too high after regulator replacement and self clean


You need a Gas tech/plumber there urgently!!!!
If the gas jets in your oven had not been changed to accomodate LP gas then the orifice on your existing jets are still to large in diameter. In other words your using Natural Gas jets ( lower pressure jets) for Lp which has a much higher pressure than Nat. gas, this can be extremely dangerous, & could cause major problems.
Again I strongly suggest you contact a Gas tech/Plumber & do not use your oven until it has beeen checked by a professional.Good luck

HI,
SAFETY FIRST, Have the unit checked for issues, it not worth the home over a leak. Unless you know about this unit, have your gas company inspect for leaks and supply issues. If you leak is a connection issue, they will advise how to repair, if internal, it should be check right away or prior to using again.
I had seen a simple loose connection cause a lot of damage.
Please be safety, I would be glad to assist you further if needed.

The smell of gas


call for service immediatly. dont ever mess with a possible gas leak. it is more than likely a slow leak at the shutoff or the safty valve. your local repair company should have a combustible gas detector. to pin point the leak.
