SOURCE: Model NO. FGF379WECD. Serial NO. VF65008987 I

I have a FGF379WECS ( I believe the letters at the end of the model just denotes your finish; my unit is stainless steel) with a serial number in a similar range as your's.
I purchased my stove from Sears winter of 1999/200.

HTH.

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

Winchester 94 with serial 2728669 what year was it made


You've got an exactly 1964 gun, Karen. The changeover year for Winchester. They retooled most of their guns that very year to cut expenses on some or to make for easier manufacturing on others. When folks talk about "pre 64 Winchesters", they mean guns made up to the year 1963 that used diff parts and had diff levels of finishing etc. In 64, Winchester started the new model 94 at serial number 2,700,000 and they went to 2,797,000 or so that first year.

Evinrude serial numbers 18902bc 53303


It looks like you have an old one....?

model # and serial # are on the mounting bracket, port side.
1980 and later, the model number will start with "J25" followed by 5 or 6 characters. there might be another letter in front of the "J".

1956 to 1980, most model #'s begin with the horsepower, before that, it's more random.

Commercial, military and racing versions each have their own model # sequence.

If i turn on the oven the pilot burns but no gas


This is a bad gas valve. You will need your model number off this unit to order the correct part. If you will look around the front frame of the oven, there is a serial plate with model number on it. If it has a bottom drawer, it may be on the front frame when you open the drawer. Give us a call with your model number and we'll get the right part out to you asap. 972-859-0929 - We look forward to working with you! Hope this helps!

Roden Gas glass stovetop shattered MODEL GC73H


I have come across this occurence twice before.
With glass stove tops the glass is toughened and can generally withstand most temperatures associated with normal cooking situations. This, of course, assumes that there is sufficient space beneath the cooking utensil (saucepan, frying pan, etc) for air to circulate and the build up of heat to dissipate. If this cannot take place heat will build up to the point that the glass - a refractory material will no longer be able to withstand the internal and external forces created by the differences in internal and external temperatures and will thus shatter.
Though this is generally rare, it is known to take place and users are warned. Incidentally, this is the reason the shape of the glass top is the way it is and not the usual square as with other tops, in order for the heat to dissipate more easily.
In short, you should insist to your landlord that you were not misusing the appliance, but through genuine use this somewhat rare event occurred.

Lighting a pilot light in a 30 year old roper gas range


Lift the top lid and look for a cylinder or something similar with tubing going into it there should be a button of some sort on the side. if you are lucky the button will have a red cap on it. press the button in and light the pilot inside the oven. hold the button for a minute or so until the pilot stays on. kind of like lighting a water heater.
