I CURRENTLY HAVE AN ELECTRIC STOVE. I WOULD LIKE TO PURCHASE A GAS STOVE TO REPLACE MY ELECTRIC STOVE. MY ONE FAMILY HOUSE IS HEATED BY A TRANE XR80 SINGLE-STAGE GAS FURNACE WHICH WAS INSTALLED BY KEYSPAN IN 2002. CAN A CONNECTION BE MADE TO ENABLE ME TO INSTALL A GAS STOVE. IF POSSIBLE, CAN KEYSPAN DO THE INSTALLATION. IF NOT WHO COULD I GET TO DO THE INSTALLATION ?

Gas is not to dangerous as long as you do everything properly. Ensure you have CO2 detectors throughout you're house and also if you smell gas when you are not using/lighting you're stove there may be an issue. Now to the stove, the clicking you are hearing is the spark to light the gas. let it make that noise until you see a flame. Here is a video and links to CO2 detectors.
Hello. One question has your range burner jets been changed to LP (liquid
propane). If you are using natural gas jets for the burners and ovens this make
the heat and flam fluctuate in temperature and the same for the oven. Natural
gas jets are larger. One more thing here! There is a control valve spring with
cap in the stove gas regulator that has to be taken out and turn around.
Search the operation manual on how to changes jets from natural gas to LP. In
back of the stove behind one of the panels is a small cloth bag contain these LP
jest and also there should be set of instruction in a bunch of languages.
If you are going to do this yourself--- DIY. Read those instruction ever
carefully. There a bass ball valve that hook to the gas line before the flex
stainless line behind you stove. Turn the nob to where it perpendicular to the
gas line. Open the windows in the house and turn off all electric equipment such
as, fans, toasters, don't be clicking the light switches off and on. Just
a precaution for you and your family safety.
Check with your city zoning ordnance about home owner changing their gas jets
in the range. Some cities and states won't allow you to due this. Then you will
need a technician to preform this operation. I wish you and family well being
and you safety first... GB you...stewbison
element has blown, pop is it breaking, that heating element will need replacing, failing this and elements all working water may have gotten to the electrics this would cause the pop and shut down all electric as well.
Ok, now that I know it's natural gas, what I would like for you to do is fire off the other gas appliances (furnace, water heater, etc) you have in the house to see if you having a similar problem with them as well. If so, you may may a regulator problem (at the meter) and will need to contact your gas co to replace or repair their equipment. If not, and the problem is isolated to the stove only, then you may have a defective appliance regulator, which supplies gas to all the burners on the stovetop and the oven. How old is the stove? Is it still under warranty? If so, you can call G.E. and have them service the stove for free.
Cast iron cookware is NOT recommended due to the weight and the potential damage it can cause to the glass top surface. There's nothing better than a good old-fashioned cast iron skillet that's been broken in over a number of years of use, but they are better suited for gas ranges rather than electric. I hate it. I have several cast iron skillets that I only use on the outdoor grill, because I currently own a glass top electric range.
Aluminum bottom pans and copper bottom pans heat well, but can leave metal transfer marks on the cook top surface. If the marks are cleaned after use with an approved stove top cleaner, you shouldn't have any problem retaining the condition of the glass surface, however. Stainless Steel seems to offer good resistance to metal transfer, but takes a little longer to heat than aluminum or copper. So...you have somewhat of a trade off. Baked enamel cookware seems to be the best recommendation because it heats wells and causes the least amount of damage to your glass top surface.
IMPORTANT: Make sure the bottom of your cookware is FLAT. If your pans are warped or bowed, this can cause uneven heat transfer on the heating elements and potentially cause the cook top to crack. Most manufacturers will not replace the top if it still under warranty if it is determined that your cookware caused the problem.
