My Kenmore propane fueled gas oven gives off a powerful strong smell every time it is started. The burners on top do not. Is there any way I can correct this?


this is because the gas is on full before the oven lights
IT is an explosive situation and should be quickly corrected by an accredited gas fitter
the soot indicates an incorrect burn ratio and that will be the major part of the problem

Strong fumes from new frigidaire gas oven.what should i look for


If it smells like gas Shut the gas off outside call installer, or
gas company. If it doesn't smell like gas, most likely it's the "new smell" caused by the heat. If you have a kitchen vent fan turn it on. If it persists Call the installer or dealer. No action by them? call the mfg customer service number in your owner's manual. It's possible something was left in the oven burner area that shouldn't be there.

The oven sounds like it is sputtering the whole time it is preheating and baking something once it reaches it's temperature. Oven is working, just making this sound. Although, it does seems to take a...


While you didnt say if your oven is heated by gas or electric i am going to assume its gas and the cause of that sputtering sound is due to weak ingiter that is not fully opening the gas valve yet its just opening it a wee bit cauing it to basically starve for gas flow and sputtering all the time the gas is flowing. By replacing the igniter the gas will flow properly and stong and thusly the noise will cease and it will heat quickly.

If its electric heated let me know and i will figure why its sputtering

Sometimes there is a stong smell of gas when the oven is used


The problem is usually the igniter not reaching the correct amp draw .When the igniter does not reach the correct amp draw it may allow the gas valve to partially open or not open at all. The igniters are inexpensive and easy to replace. There is a video at http://appliancehelponline.com/gasoventroubleshootvideo.html this will walk you thru the correct procedure for performing this test. It may be a different model but the testing will be the same.You can also enter your model # for diagrams and illustrations of your specific model. Not all models are available. All parts come with installation instructions.

Gas smell when oven is on and heating.


This sounds like a gas leak at the gas control valve for the oven, probably somewhere just past the control valve. If the leak was before the valve, you would either hear or smell gas leaking all the time.
The line could simply be loose at the fitting or the gas valve could be faulty. You could also have a leak somewhere at or before the oven burner assembly.

At any rate, this condition can be dangerous. The oven gas leak (any gas leak) should be diagnosed by a competent technician and the cause(s) of the gas leak determined as soon as possible and corrected.
