The leak itself may not be in the grill. It may be the connections to the gas tank regulator and hose. Or a minor leak in the tank valve, itself. Occasionally, the burner control valves will leak even when they are turned OFF. Of course, they are the hardest thing to test. These are just a few of the things you may need to check, in addition to those you have already tested.

Good luck and Happy Grilling!

Reh 252uc - Service or Replace? Smell gas when turned off....

You may have a small gas leak. Use a water sprayer with dish soap mixed with water and spray the gas fittings. If bubbles develop, you have a leak. Careful not to spray any electronics!

Avenger 25. 2 months old. house is quite large and is smelling of gas, this smell is getting more noticeable. only occurs when the heater is on.

1 if you smell gas do not operate this unit until you find this leak or sourse of leak. one thing you can do is get a spray bottle and mix up a very soapy mixture of water and soap. before you trun anything on spray any connections , joints , or threaded piping leading to the heater, If you see bubbles forming any where on any joint you have a leak. keep at this until you are satisified there are no leaks at the joints. Next check all connections that are inside the furnas using a wrench you do not need to over tighten any thing but with gentle force look for a lose fitting.,, Then turn the heater on and spray all the joints again to try to find a leak. and check the bruners and see that they are all fired up. if you don't find any thing you might have to call a tech.
Just a note on new units like your some purge the fire box before they fire off . so when you smell gass is it all the while the unit is running? or does it go away? you might be smelling the purge in which case you may need to add a stack to the vent on the unit . Let me know what you find

Smells like propane gas in wash room.

Turn off the gas to the dryer and then get a spray bottle with soapy water solution in it... turn the gas back on and spray all of the connections in the gas piping... when you get bubbles, you have found the leak...fix the leaks and recheck with the soapy water...

There is a strong smell of gas from my cooker, pipe from cyclinder to cooker appears ok , new world 55wlg

Do not light anything if you are smelling gas. Make up a soapy solution in a spray bottle and apply to all connections and look for bubbles. Most common place to leak is hook-up at cylinder and hook-up at cooker. If you can't find the leak and continue to smell gas, do not use it. Also make sure your cylinder is not empty.

Everything hooked up but smells like gas. Checked line with soapy water mix. No leaks. What's wrong?

If everything is hooked up and you still smell gas you still have a leak. The gas valve could be letting out gas if the burner is not igniting, however it sounds like you have a small leak on your line which will not be detected by just soapy water. You need to go to a hardware store or a place like home depot and get what's called MegaBubble Leak Detector or a similar brand of leak detector. What this stuff is designed to do is bubble up with massive bubbles where your leak is and it will detect even the smallest leak. If there is no large bubbles there is no leak. Don't be afraid to over do it when putting this stuff on the pipe.

Smelling Gas and Soot in Oven

well its pretty normal u will smell gas when its preheating but if u think its not then u can pull the oven out and check the gas line connection is tight if it is then u can also get a spray bottle of soapy water and spray the whole line and if u see alot of bubbles then there is ur leak and for the soot problem u can use the clean cycle which all it does is reach a very high temp and pretty much burns everything like crumbs to a crisp and all u have to do is basically wipe it out with a damp cloth and maybe a mild soap and sponge good luck

You could have a gas leak on one of the connections or a leaking safety valve. Mix some dishsoap, (dawn, etc) with water, 50/50. Soak the connections and fittings on the incoming line to the range. If You get bubbles you found the leak. Next find the orfice for the bake burner, take out the drawer and you should see the tube in the center. It will have an opening in the bottom where the orfice goes in. The orfice is brass, spray some soap bubbles on the brass orfice and see if it bubbles, if it does you need a new safety valve. Still no bubbles open the oven and look on the back wall of the cavity for the broil orfice ( if it has a broil burner). Hope that helps
