Question about Frigidaire FGF378AC Gas Kitchen Range

Open Question

I have a strange odor when using the burners or oven of my frigidaire gas stove that was new in October. It smells like a chemical smell of sorts, my son said melting plastic or something. It is lilke brand new, no spills - I just used dish soap and rewashed all of the grates and burner tops - turned it on and it still smells. Is it even safe to use? Jackie Scott jssunfire@yahoo.com

SOURCE: Oven won't light on low settings (170), no trace gas smell.

Igniting bar located on the inside of the oven it is a rectangular piece with one or two screws. It is basically a heating element that also controls the gas. Change that ignitor and it should fix it no problem.

I have a Frigidaire gas stovetop range that smells of gas only when the power plus burner is lit


I hope you haven't cracked the tubing to the burner. If the stove is a sealed burner model it could be that when you tried to open the top you could have cracked the tubing to the burner. I had this happen to a client just a few weeks ago. The damage was so bad they had to buy a new stove. You may be able to replace just the offending burner tube.

Where is the problem -- in the oven burner or a stovetop burner?
If something got spilled on a burner ring and clogged the small holes, especially near the igniter, the burner will be slow to light. A stiff wire (small enough to fit) can be used to clean out the holes.

WE SHUT OFF THE GAS TO THIS STOVE SEVERAL WEEKS AGO AND ARE READY TO RELIGHT THE STOVE NOW. WE CAN NOT FIND THE MANUAL AS TO HOW TO DO THAT. WE ARE CONCERNED MAINLY ABOUT THE OVEN AS IT SAYS IT IS A...


You should be able to just open the gas ****. That will supply gas to the gas to the stove. Once you've opened the gas ****, wait about 60 seconds and turn on one of the burners. The electric ignition should work to ignite the gas and you'll have your flame. If you smell a strong odor of gas, DO NOT use the electric ignition until the gas odor diminishes. In other words, when you first smell gas, you can try lighting it. If the smell of gas becomes strong, you DO NOT want to light anything in the area because an accumulation of gas can lead to an explosion. Be very careful.
If this helps, please come back to Fixya and rate my suggestion.

I have a kenmore elite slide in range. we notice the smell of gas


Hi,

There could be a couple things that would cause your symptoms, I will do my best to try and explain each one.

First off I am assuming from your dialog that everything is cooking the same on the top and in the oven, the times are the same the flames on the top burners look or sound no different. If this is the case the repair outside would not have a direct bearing on a 'problem' but it could cause the odor. Here is why...

Natural gas has no odor a chemical called Mercaptan is added to the gas to make a leak easier to detect. The amount of Mercaptan is regulated closely so it all is consumed in the flame. If there is too much you will get an odor from the flame.

The Mercaptan can line the inside of the piping that feeds gas from the regulator to the range. Working on the pipes can break loose some residue that may have a stronger presence of odorant causing you to smell it for some time. It will eventually go away.

The second thing that could cause this odor is if you have done any remodeling in the home, paint fumes, stains, oils many other chemicals can mix with the gas and cause this Mercaptan to not be burned up all the way and create an odor.

I hope this helps

When I use my gas range it smells like lighter fluid. Only when it is on, when off the odor goes away. It is a dual stove with electric oven and gas top. It started with one burner and now all 5 of them...


I am having the same problem with our stove in our new house. We just moved in and everytime I turn a burner on it smells like charcoal lighter fluid. Anyone know what this is?
