Question about GE Spectra JGBP35 Gas Kitchen Range
My wife is environmentally sensitve and notices a gas smell in the kitchen from stove usage. In the winter it is particularly a problem with closed windows and the stove is not vented to the outside in any way. Is this a particular issue to this GE Spectra or should we expect this with any gas stove? The side effects of the gas smell is a headache...... I personally do not have the affect, but her mom and sister notice it when they visit.
Also when the stove is cooking something occasionally we will hear a wooshing sound as if the gas is obstructed and trying hard to flow and then it will raise in volulme for 10 seconds and quiet itself again. This will reoccur every 5-10 minutes......quite annoying and initially fearful.
The stove is 15 years old and wondered if this thing is ready for the stove graveyard.
The gas valve may be failing. The 'whooshing sound' you hear may be the gas valve closing too slowly when the oven cycles off or the cavity is filling with gas and igniting when the oven cycles on. The gas you smell may be an indication that the valve is not closing completely. This can be potentially dangerous if the oven fills with gas then ignites. I would not operate the stove any longer and shut off the gas to the stove.
