Question about Dacor Preference SGM365SS Gas Cooktop
I googled the problem to make sure I remembered how they worked.The only problem that would cause regulator leak is improper adjustment on a brand new one if the pressure is too high.It also talks about the spring which helps regulate the gas may lose its springiness,after several years though.There are numerous safety measures to stop the gas from coming out if you have a pilot light and it goes out which I did already know.I also know that NEVER will a regulator just simply release the gas into the air from overpressure.That would not even be allowed by anyone in the entire industry.Also,when your drawer is closed,then you open it,do you get a little whiff of gas?Natural gas(is that what you have?) does not have an odor in it's natural state.After it is drawn,a chemical is added so you can smell it and tell if there is a leak.If the odor is very minimal,it may just be the pilot burning if you have one.I would say it would likely be consistent if there was even the smallest of leaks.I used to repair gas appliances however...I was born with no sense of smell.I am including a link to you so that you can learn a little more about gas regulation.Also,I would be persistenet with your plumber and ask him to come over and do a checkup,and just tell him you are very worried about the situation since it could have obviously dangerous results,and it will give you peace of mind.They should do it for free,they better.Tell him you just want him to come over and make a quick gas reading.Hope this helps you out.If you have any questions about what you are reading,I know how all that stuff works,is designed,or whatever.
Just comment to this post and I will get an auto link.
Good luck! Greg
