Question about Jenn-Air JGR8850 Gas Kitchen Range

2 Answers

I have model seg 196. It smells like a gas leak on the left side. When I ignite the burners, a fan kicks on. The fan that turns on appears to be the one in the oven, although the oven is electric. I tried switching the burners. Only happens on the left side. What's up?

    Since the oven is electric & the stovetop is gas, I don't understand why the oven fan would come on. I don't know where the leak may be coming from.

It smells like gas but there is no gas run to this oven? You are certain of that I take it? Is there any nearby appliance that runs on gas? What about the oven portion of it?

Let me know and I can help here.

    I just saw your other comment, couldn't see it before... the stovetop is gas correct? It sounds like something is malfunctioning for sure, there is no logical reason that fan would kick on, and if there is gas leaking that is extremely dangerous as I'm sure you realize. You can try replacing some parts, I have recommendations, but honestly you are going to be best served bringing someone in - in person to look at it. Either that or completely shut off the stove until you get the new parts.

    Thanks

Kathy,
The burner in the oven that has the fan going on is leaking. May be a small leak but a leak nevertheless. So please have its gas pipe removed and replaced soonest. Then the has smell and the fan running on its own will cease.

Does this Pro-Com heater leave a smell of gas?


the problem you have is a gas leak
turn off the gas at the mains or gas bottle immediately and call a gas fitter to locate and fix the leak
by using a fan you run a very real risk of a spark in the fan igniting the gas and leaving you homeless and badly burnt
the fact that you can smell gas means that it is already dangerous

Burners will not light


Hello bdrillbit - 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.

Occasional gas smell


If you have a burner lit and gas build up, strong smell etc., my advice would be to stop using the oven immediately! You no way gas should come out, build up, to the point you smell it, Especially while a burner is lit. Dangerous condition.

I have a Dayton gas heater Model 3E225


Does the main blower fan kick on? Also, if the heater is vented outside via a flue pipe, there may be a small (about 3 or 4 inches in diameter) vent fan that kicks on to ensure the exhaust fumes are evacuated through the flue pipe. If there's a problem with that fan, the burner won't light either.

Burner clicks a long time before igniting you can smell the gas


Not sure about what part 1 is about. #2 indicates a failing ignitor gap or a bad gas mix. Get professional assistance.

Amana oven gas leak issue


staunch has no idea what he is talking about. It has nothing to do with the igniter, or it would fire up at all. Since you are saying that your oven does ignite and heat up, it is the internal gas valve that is the problem.

The way all recent (20 year at least) are designed, the gas valve internally can not open unless the igniter is working, for obvious reasons ... boom! The igniter circuit allows the gas valve to open, once it detects that the igniter is ready to "ignite" a gas flow. BUT, the valve can be bad in the AMOUNT of gas being delivered. Your's is allowing too much gas, more than can be burned, hence the smell.

DON'T use the oven until you have a qualitifed tech come out and replace the valve. It is very dangerous for you to do it yourself.
