MY oven just started making a very scary noise when ever I turn it on.
I will turn on the oven, to automatic preheat 350, And in about 2 to 3 minutes, It sounds like there's going to be and explosion. Like a loud (POOF) And the oven is not warming up, but does smell like gas. I have tried cleaning the elements inside. And It worked for about two uses then started doing it again. I haven't used it since. Thanks Susan in Illinois
The you either don't have the gas tightly secured or the heating coil is bust this can be fixed by going to the back of the oven and open the back and then removing the coil after that you have to buy a new one from a hardware store and put it where the other one used to be

Don't open the door(heat escapes) Turn stove wide open. There should be aboslutly no upsetting small explosions goin on at all. My first thought is the generator is weak. These systems use a pilot generator to operate the flame. If that is not it then the flame sensor itselve is wired into the mix and that is intermittant. I have no way of knowing what type of system your range uses but i can only imagine with your description. cgange the generator. that is my first thought ,it is less than the oven thermostat. the oven thermostat would be the next faulty part in the line.
Always preheat your oven and let it cycle at least 2 times. Your unit may show 350 but the manufactures know that it is not 350. When it registers preheated, it really means that it is at an acceptable temperature to start cooking. If you think that it may not be calibrated correctly, your owner's manual will have instructions on how to recalibrate your oven. You will be able to raise or lower the temperature by + 25 degrees or - 25 degrees. As far as the gas smell, you will from time to time smell a gas smell with a gas oven especially if you are right at it when it ignites. If you are smelling gas when it is not in use then you should be extremely concerned.
Chances are the oven ignitor will need to be replaced. Look and see if it glows. If it does then it is weak and not opening the gas valve to lite. Let me know what you find.

Should be able to remove the bottom drawer and unplug the ignitor from below. Or you can cut the wires on the old ignitor and splice the new one in using ceramic
