Gas smell when using and not using


follow this steps and fix it. God bless you

f the pilot light on your stove goes out, natural gas may build up in your stove. If your pilot light has gone out, open the kitchen windows and doors for 15 minutes to let the gas dissipate safely then relight the pilot light. Do not relight the pilot light immediately -- striking a match could cause an explosion.
Gas Leak

  • If you can smell the sulfur-like or rotten egg smell of gas, there may be a gas leak inside or outside your home. You might also hear a hissing sound coming from the stove or another appliance or from a pipeline. Outside gas leaks may kill or stunt nearby vegetation. Signs of carbon monoxide poisoning include nausea, dizziness, fatigue and other flu-like symptoms.

f you still smell gas after relighting the pilot light, don't hesitate. Leave your home, along with the rest of your family and pets, then call your utility company or 911 from a safe location. Leave the doors and windows open behind you, especially if the odor is strong or you can hear the hissing of a gas leak. Do not turn appliances or lights on or off or use a phone in your home. Do not strike a match or use a lighter, either. Prevention

Where is the problem -- in the oven burner or a stovetop burner?
If something got spilled on a burner ring and clogged the small holes, especially near the igniter, the burner will be slow to light. A stiff wire (small enough to fit) can be used to clean out the holes.

You should be able to just open the gas ****. That will supply gas to the gas to the stove. Once you've opened the gas ****, wait about 60 seconds and turn on one of the burners. The electric ignition should work to ignite the gas and you'll have your flame. If you smell a strong odor of gas, DO NOT use the electric ignition until the gas odor diminishes. In other words, when you first smell gas, you can try lighting it. If the smell of gas becomes strong, you DO NOT want to light anything in the area because an accumulation of gas can lead to an explosion. Be very careful.
If this helps, please come back to Fixya and rate my suggestion.

Won't get hot, smells like gas


Most of these new fangled gas stove feature a silicone carbide ignitor to light the oven. Older stoves used a standing pilot light. As silicone carbide ignitor age a little they tend to get weak and fail to open the gas safety vave sufficiently enough for ignition. Take a look

I have a used kenmore propane gas stove that i just bought from someone. We have hooked it up but can only get the oven to come on. The stove top burners will not come on. We we turn on the burners we do...


In the old days stoves were lit with a match. If this does not work for you it would be due to the stove's lines remaining "airlogged" after the move. The oven purged and ignited more easily because it has a much larger orifice, so the air bled more quickly. I expect if you were to leave one burner turned on long enough for the air to bleed out you will find it to ignite normally. Do not leave the stove to bleed unattended, and if you encounter a strong smell of the gas, turn off the burner, and ventilate the room as needed. The smell of gas would indicate that gas is present, it may be possible that a lead came disconnected from the ignition module in the back of the stove. Again if this is the case, the ol' match will light the burner. Be Careful!

Oven burner doesn't light


If memory serves me,there are a couple of screws on oven floor.Remove panel.Sounds like ignitor is the culprit.It feeds back to control.It may glow and light but unless it is sending full signal,gas valve will not open fully and oven will take forever to heat.
