My gas stove is in otherwise excellent condition, but when the oven is in use there is an intermittent "whooshing" noise, as if air is rushing in. The process begins with a little pop and then in time the noise just goes away, to return later. The repairman suggests it's the regulator. I don't want it to conk out while I'm entertaining or cooking the Christmas dinner. Can someone please advise me.
ANSWER Mike, If your range is using LP gas, it could be normal. If you're using Nat gas as the supply, You could have a regulator issue, Either way the first thing to check is the burner igniter and wiring, make sure there are no loose connection, check and make sure the fuel air mixture is correct, You may have to adjust the shutter on the burner tube if the burner flame is too small or has too much yellow or white tipping of the flame. and make sure the burner flame encompasses the igniter,to keep a " slightly red glow" to the igniter with the flame from the burner. Thanks and Good Luck
