SOURCE: gas smell by back of stove and burner amana model

Firstly, The guy who tested with a lighter needs reporting to the professional body that qualfies gas engineers (In the UK he would have to be "CORGI registered" I presume you have similar in the US). Had he found a substantial leak with his lighter he could have exposed you to a lethal explosion.

Here is a vers safe ameture way to see if you have a leak:

First: Vevtilate the room so there is no smell of gas, open all the windows and doors and let the air blow through. If there is any hint of a gas smell, just call out a gas emergency service.

It's unlikely taht your leak is that bad and if you are happy that lighting the stove is not going to cause an explosion, do the following:

  • Turn the gas off at the main
  • Immediately, go to the stove and light the smallest burner
  • Time the interval between lighting and the flame dying out for lack of gas
  • Turn the burner control to off
  • Turn the main back on
  • Light ALL the burners (It may take a moment) to ensure any air is evacuated from the system
  • Turn OFF all the burners
  • Return to the main and turn that off
  • Wait 30 minutes to an hour
  • Without turning the main back on, turn on the small burner and time the interval it ramains lit again.
  • Turn the control to OFF

The time it took the burner to go out immediately after turning off the gas and the time it took after your 30-60 minute wait SHOULD be the same.

If it took less time to go out after the wait period, it's because some gas leaked out somewhere.
If the time was the same you have no leak.

If this demonstrates you DO have a leak, my advice would be to call out the idiot who tested the stove the first time and go through the test with him. Then, demand a refund on pain of you reporting him for a health and safety violation if you don't get your money back. Now throw him out of the house.

Call out someone who is more competent (Shouldn't be difficult, a trained chimp would probably out perform this guy!)

You can test the new guy's work the same way before he leaves too!

There is NO WAY that a leak like this should force you into a replacement stove unless someone can demonstrate what the failing component is and that costs more to replace than a new stove.

Hope all the above helps. Please drop a comment on this thread to let me know how you got on, or if you need any further advice

My GE XL44 Gas Range (Model JGBP34 GEP 1A) control


If you like the stove and it in good shape otherwise, have it fixed. The parts are still available. The stove in good used condition (without leak) is probably worth $75.00. May cost that much to repair it. Will cost approximately $450.00 to replace it with equal range. If it's a standing pilot model (no electricity needed) they are unavailable and your new range will require power to use the oven. Hope this helps.

Replacement Parts For Vintage Magic Chef stove


You probably have a 1940's model of Magic Chef. Check for the model number under the lid of the cook top on the upper right hand side of the stove. It should have the model number and the serial number, too. You will need both. The Old Applicance Club run by Jack Santoro is the place to go along with a site called "Antique gas stoves"in Georgia. Good luck with the world of vintage stoves.
