If this is an lod cooker and you are rightly concerned for your safety you should consider changeing the cooker for an appliance that has thermocouple safety devices . these controls dont allow gas to pass unless the burner is lit and should the flame blow out it will sht the gas off aftre 30-45 seconds

Amana counter top gas stove when plugged in start making clicking noise and you can smell gas .

on most, your push down and turn to hi to open gas valve and turn on piezio to light burner. it sounds like you have a knob already turned on . the control under the knob may need replacing. kinda an easy replacement if you get new part. check out for video(maybe) but for parts for sure. be careful. gas is explosive.

I have to replace the front and rear cork gaskets on my Richelieu gas stove/fireplace. Does anyone know what kind of job this is? Difficult or easy? Any suggestions on how to do this?

cork is not a seal against gas so what he is talking about may be a retainer or bed for the gas unit. I would get a second opinion first and ask how it is done .

I walked by my stove and noticed heat coming from it and I opened the oven door and heat was coming from it. I did not turn on the stove top burners or the oven when I noticed it. The switch was OFF. I...

You most likely have a problem with the temprature contol knob and the thermostat.

This is all contained in one unit. The controller has a long metal "wire" that sends the temp info to the controller. The "wire" ends inside the oven.

This whole assemblage needs to be replaced.

I would need the type of stove, gas or electric age and model to give you replacement directions

I have a Frigidaire gas stove model FGF337BCGL. It makes a groaning sound when I first turn on the stove top also when i turn on the oven. Sometimes it does the groaning 15 min after being turned on. It...

The groaning your hearing is the internal gas regulator. It is nothing to be worried about unless your having problems with the size of the flame whn the oven is in use. The groan is the gas passing under the diaphram and the diaphram is gently vibrating against the regulator mating face. It can be annoying but really nothing to be concerned about. If you really want to rid yourself of the nuisance you can either have the regulator changed (legally) or change it yourself:
The regulator is item 14 this link:

My thoughts are as a 35 + year in home repair person is: Unless there is some other problem.. do not be too concerned.

Thanks for choosing FixYa.

The orange glow you see is coming from the oven igniter. The igniter needs to glow white hot in order to light. You need to replace the oven igniter. Hope this helps.

Electronic Ignition for Gas Stove Doesn't Work

We have the same problem constantly. We have discovered that if we disconnect from electrical outlet, we "reboot the interior control" and it starts again. Said to say, tonight it doesn't seem to be working. I hate these! I'm going to go look for an "old fashioned gas range."/

GE profile gas stove igniter don't stop igniting

take a look at the igniter located in the center of two burners. clean the gap with a stiff brush between the eletrode and the upper plate. the distance is preset at the factory. you may have enough buildup to close the gap enough to trigger the igniter.
