SOURCE: 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

SOURCE: Our glow bar lights up when gas oven is turned on,

Typically the issue here is a weak glow bar (hot surface ignitor). When they weaken they open the gas valve slowly and it takes a bit for the ignitor to light up the oven burner.

It is a safe bet that you need to replace it.

SOURCE: The burners are not lighting Frigidaire Gas Range only 8 months

Electric gas igniters sometimes get stuck in one position causing a clicking sound. The clicking sound that you hear is the electric arc that is pulsing from the igniter conductor (wire) to ground (the gas burner). It receives power from the electrical outlet that the stove is plugged into.
Residue from food and sometimes cleaning products may be preventing the igniter from producing a spark (Arc) to the base of the burner. This is a common problem that occurs when the stove has been cleaned or food is allowed to build up. Make sure that the igniter and the burner base are clean and dry. This will help with proper operation. Oven cleaner and a small tooth brush may be used to accomplish this. Another problem with ignition may occur if you have too little (touching) or too much space between the igniter and the base of the burner; it will prevent the burner from igniting. You should only have a little more space than the thickness of a nickel between the burner base and the igniter. A good "blue" arc from the igniter to the burner base is optimal. If this doesn’t work, you may need to replace the electric igniter module. Good luck.

Smell gas in oven


We smell it sometimes, too. Ever since we got it we sometimes smell gas. I think we got used to it and just assumed it was the pilot light doing things.

Sounds like the ignitor is bad. They get weak and stop opening the valve completely so it may cause the gas smell.

Oven over heats/gas smell


Hi the fact that you smell gas near the floor suggests you do indeed have a gas leak, propane is heavier than air to will fall to the floor.

you really need to get the gas company to check

I own a  99' 9-5 V6 turbo SE.  Had the same thing.  Started smelling gas in the car, sometimes.  Instead of not starting it died (as in the engine stopped) on a barren stretch of road at night.  Towed to the Saab dealer: Conclusion?  Replaced the fuel pump and sending unit. Don't ask how much.

Oven ignites by itself


Any chance that the plastic knob was cracked and not really turning the shaft of the thermostat?
What did you find the problem. I know this response is 2 months after the last post above.

Ge gas oven with electronic ignition


yea sounds like you have a bad oven ignitor, tell tale signs are not heating past warm, smells gas, too long to cook, popping noises while cooking. Id replace that ignitor. Although it might appear to "glow" not glowing strong enough

Oven not always working


MOre than likely your igniter is getting weak. If it doesnt pull enough amperage. it shouldnt let gas into the oven. If it is letting in gas and not igniting, I would suggest a new igniter and a new safety valve. Hope this helps!
