Probably not, but codes vary greatly from state to state and even in different the best thing to do is to call the code enforcement officer that has the authority where the house is...

At any rate I would have it removed or moved before closing on the property...

Igniter knobs on my gas stove turn just enough to let gas escape.

There isn't much you can do to the stove outside of buying a stove that has standing pilots or shutting off the gas each time you leave the kitchen. This is a problem with the pilotless design. If the knob isn't turned far enough the activate the spark switch, gas can escape without being lit. Vigilance is your only answer outside of the solutions suggested.

I have mold problems when using ventless propane gas wall heaters in a small rental house. The house is very tightly insulated. How can I solve this problem?

Air requirments for these units are 50 cubic feet of air for every one thousand BTU'S - if you are under this amount need to have fresh air into the room with a grill that has 1 square inch for every thousand BT'S.

I have a ventless heater, my house is covered in black soot, i also have a carbon minoxide detector it's never went off, what is it?

Your ventless appliance probably needs cleaned-the combustion burners and air passages need blown out with compressed air or vacuumed. also ensure you have supply of outside air into your house. if your house is sealed up pretty tight you need to crack a couple windows to let air in. There is no such thing as a truely "ventless"..what they mean is ..properly maintained and operated ventless heaters with proper ventilation are safe to use inside. also be aware that other chemicals in the air of your house from candles and air freshners, cleaning agents, etc will burn in the ventless heaters creating toxic pollution.

Ventless gas heater smells like kerosene

It is posible that your heater is burning fumes from paint, varnish or stain and some times carpet cleaners or other household cleaners. I work for a utility company. We get called to homes for a lighter fluid/kerosene smell quit often. Most of the time it is from the fumes burning off on a standing pilot gas oven. The odor collects in the oven and is released in the customers face when they open the oven door. This will happen with any open flame appliance when exposed to these fumes.

We have had cooker 10 months was repaired after 2 months with new thermo coupling oven kept going out this has happened again in hour n half of cooking chicken went out 3 times dont no whether it is part...

This probably needs more information to solve. What kind of cooker? Do you have electrical problem/ or gas problems?

The headaches for everyone in the house is an issue you need to look into. If your stove is gas and you suspect a gas leak (something that is very dangerous and can cause headaches) you can start by asking your gas company for an inspection. This is usually a free service because they don't want people blown up in their homes. Headaches can also be caused by carbon monoxide. If you have an attached garage and let your car warm up inside, this can be the cause. A nearby garage can also cause that. You can check carbon monoxide levels in your home with a six dollar tester you can buy at any discount store. Finally, molds can cause the whole family headaches. Look for discolored spots anywhere water can gather -- under eaves, beneath sinks, and near your water heater. If the headaches continue, seek help from an expert.
