Hi, I have a Maytag super capacity plus free standing stove. I think the past owners refitted it for propane. However, when I use the oven I can hear it turning off and on with the propane. Also, I smell...


My advice is to get a professional person to check this out. If you smell propane then there has to be a leak of gas. It could kill you if you don't get it repaired right way. Large flames mean you may have the wrong orifices in it.

20" gas stove: has pilot light in oven, oven lights but then after several minutes will turn off. do not smell gas after it turns itself off. Using 3/8" gas line. Please advise as to potential problems...


Hi,
The oven igniter should stay on constantly as long as oven control is calling for heat and not fade off. If the igniter is too weak and not pulling enough current it may not open the gas valve correctly and gas will be let out of the gas valve and not igniter.
The likely failure is a weak oven glow bar igniter. I recommend calling a service technician to diagnose and repair your range.

Hope this helps .

It may be a shorted high voltage diode.

Since it's less than one year old, it would be fully covered under warranty. I'd suggest contacting the manufacturer to get it fixed free.

You can contact Sharp at 1-800-BE-SHARP (1-800-237-4277) or visit them online.

Motor sounds differently, smells like something is getting hot, won't heat the food


Do you have good air flow coming out of the vents?

If for some reason the cooling fan stopped working, it can cause the magnetron to overheat and be damaged.

If you don't still have your manual, you can download it here:

It will address ventilation issues.

Please write back with more details if you need further help.
