Hello,
When the burner is burning, are both sides of the burner lit and is it lit all the way down the burner? If it is and you are still smelling gas you should not use the oven until you have it serviced, so you do not have an explosion. Propane is heavier than air, and will settle in low areas, so smell low by the floor around the oven before you light it to make sure you don't have a leak first. To be safe until then, close the shutoff valve on the gas line at the appliance until you get it looked at and fixed. Douglas

Gas odor and turns my pans black


Sometimes theres too much air in the line. A better connection from tank to stove may help, or your running low on propane. Try cleaning the burners with an old toothbrush removing built up sut. Your flame should burn blue, not yellow. Hope it helps!

Fridgatare modle #FGG3054KFB I have a frigidaire range that has been converted to propane. When the oven is turned of it has a strong propane smell and there is alot of moistier inside. The flame is about...


It shouldn't be burning yellow and emitting soot at all;sounds like on of these possible causes-
(a)blocked burner airways(this can lead to yellow tipping and sooting on LPG powered appliances because insufficient air is getting through to the burner causing it;you can also get this effect on LPG barbecues say if dead insects or spiderwebs are in the burner pipes and airways after a period of storage),
(b)incorrect aeration being set when the burner was converted using LPG jets(too much gas and not enough air causing yellow flames/smells and sooting),
or (c) if you use propane cylinder gas a dicky or faulty regulator. I would get it looked at investigating all the possibilities I mention and taking action to correct this where necessary ie clearing the burner airways(if this is causing your problem), adjusting the aeration in the burners until you get a clear noiseless blue flame without any excessive yellow and sooting(but even after good adjustment you may find still get a very slight yellow tip without sooting at the top of the flame;this does happen with propane gas and there is a slight tendancy for this to happen more often with butane-butane tends to display very slight yellow tips on ignition increasing slightly as the burner warms up to full temperature) or if you use propane cylinder gas replacing the regulator if that is necessary.

I have Premier gas stove about 3yrs old. The oven will not work but, you can smell gas and hear a hissing noise. the number off of it is SLK849WPOL. the stove top works and the griddle but not the oven


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. This video will walk you thru the correct procedure for testing an oven igniter. 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.

Oven - Very bad gas smell


Very Dangerous! turn off supply to appliance, supply ventalation and call service tech. If you are very familiar with gas appliances and know what you are doing then you can try to locate the leak using soapy water or leak detector liquid. make sure all flames and other possible sources of ignition have been eliminated. Keep room well ventilated. Spray leack detector on all fittings and look for leaks replace or tighten parts as needed. This responce is asuming you have not blown up already, seriously dangerous situation you have there.

My oven isn't warming up


can you verify the ignitor is working (ie: can you hear it sparking)?
1. If no, and you are absolutely sure there is not a buildup of propane inside the oven (or house for that matter), you can try lighting it with a match. If that works, you need to replace/reposition your ignitor.
2. If yes, do you smell propane after trying to light the oven?
A. If yes, STOP and get it fixed..
B. If no,
1. Check to see that your propane tank isn't empty?
2. Verify the regulator supplying the oven with propane is actually sending gas to the over (might need a repairman for this)

F2 error code


Intermittents are a real problem. My first guess: look around for a corroded or damaged electrical feed. Could be electrical noise from that. Not sure what No other possiblities other than a bad panel. I don't know what F2 is.
