    I have a Baumatic gas hob and have what we thought was a dead mouse under or behind the units beneath the hob ehich was causing a stink. We pulled out the base boards to search for the mouse, we even used a mirror to search behind the unit but NOTHING.

    Our conclusion is that it got into the bottom of the hob when it was still warm and became trapped as the hob cooled. Each time I use the hob the smell is appalling.

    Before I send for someone to dismantle the hob, can anyone confirm that it is indeed a mouse or is there some other cause for the smell?

You smell gas after it is turned off. you do not smell gas if valve is off. The burners work but when turned off you can smell a hint of gas.


Hi, you have a leak some where an old trick of finding gas leaks was to use washing up liquid diluted if its possible in this case and when the washing liquid finds the leak it produces a soapy bubbles where the leak is .

Cooktop burner do not ihnite


Hi hgodoy2 - Is the electronic igniter aligned properly? Ensure that tip of spark igniter is aligned with metal point or "nib" located on underside of burner cap after the burner mounting screws have been tightened. (Not all burners having mounting screws). When the burner control knob is set to the "LITE" position do the igniters spark? Can gas be heard or smelled coming from the burners when the control number is turned on? However, if you smell gas, I highly recommend turning the unit and the gas off if you can reach it and contact your gas provider. The range itself does not have a switch or regulator to relight it. Keep in mind that it may be experiencing an issue with the spark module, electrodes, wiring or EOC.

The left side of my cooktop shorted out. Initially popping sound and electrical burning smell. Now shorted out with loud popping sounds and large flash of red under the cooktop. Did not start a fire but...


What you had was a slow short - practically the same thing as in a welder: big and loud flame, localized and the amperage isn't that great. As such it's very possible that the breaker wasn't tripped, especially if you had a big one, over 30Amps.
No, you shouldn't even try to repair it, that unit is dead as a dodo.

Ran out of propane, Stovetop has ignitors and they seem to be functioning fine. When turning on knobs there is plenty of propane smell but the burners fail to light.


This is normal when you run out of propane. Depending on the length of line you have, there will be a delay in relighting it again because of insert air in the line. My advice to you is to first air out the house til the smell is gone. Then turn on only 1 burner with the igniter sparking and also hold a handheld bbq lighter at the burner to ensure that the gas burner lights when the air is finally purged. This should only take 20-30secs. If it takes longer, air out the room and try again. Use common sense and please be careful!

One gas cooktop does not light, no gas smell


Hello Liz. The most common reason for the problem you are experiencing is greasey dirt in the burner. Use a small brush, some fine wire and some degreaser to clean up the burner. Then let it dry overnight and try it again. If it still won't start, you will have to replace the ignitor.

Thermador gas cooktop explosion


I would say that pop was one of you igniters.  either that or the stove is not installed correctly and when it gets warm, thermal expansion makes the metal pop.  I would say that I would use caution and discontinue its use.  Most problems with these need to fixed professionally.
