I use LP gas, but the problem has nothing to do with the burners, all of which work perfectly. It is the OVEN that makes the intermittent whooshing noise which, incidentally, does not affect the temperature or ability to cook the food. The copper tubing to the stove was replaced, but has made no difference. Again, the repairman thinks it's the regulator that is "going". Is he right? (He also told me it was cheaper to buy a new stove, which patently it isn't.
Thanks. Look forward to a solution. Christmas is coming!
ANSWER Hello Mike. It is normal to have the whooshing noise inside the oven with LP Gas. However, it you didn't have problems with this before, then there are two things that can cause this. First thing is a weak igniter. If it takes a while for the gas to lite after the igniter comes on, then you will need to replace the igniter. If the igniter is working properly, then you will need to replace the regulator WB19K10001. Hope this helps.
