SOURCE: gas oven makes a fluttering sound when pre-heating and cooking

This is most often due to the ignitor bar aging. With time it draws less current and does not hold the regulator valve open all the way. You can confirm that the regulator is OK if the broiler works. Replacement for nearly all of these ovens is a universal part, about $35 at appliance parts stores, takes 5-15 minutes to change (depending on whether you need to pull the oven out to get to the connector).

Turn on gas oven; it lights, big poof/pop comes; then continues to light and heat properly. How do I stop it from popping? The pop is scary!! GE Spectra Gas Stove/Oven


Hello,

The reason it "POOFS" is because the igniter is slightly weak and some gas enters before it gets lit,this will continue and get worse. To resolve it the igniter would need to be replaced and then as soon as the gas enters it would light it right away without collecting before it lit.

Frigidaire oven wont ignite


This sounds like a weak igniter, it would have to be a gas oven and the symptoms usually are: takes longer than normal to ignite the burner, may or may not smell gas in the oven, does not maintain set temperature or burner does not come on fully, eventually won't heat at all. On gas ovens, a glo igniter is like a light bulb, the more you cook, the faster it wears out. Bottom line, needs to be replaced. Good luck.

Smelling gas at when stove is in prelight then going away


Welcome tkrogers,

You said,smelling gas at when stove is in Pre-light then going away.

In some stoves this is normal as long as it is a slight smell and it goes away when the stove or oven ignites.
You know gas really has no smell, but this smell is added for our safety!!
What is the Make,year ,and Model number of your range?

The gas must start somewhere until the flame ignites it.
So we smell a slight smell of gas until it burns.

Thanks,
Huuum
