I have a small gas leak at the broiler orifice, when all functions are off. I assume this valve controls this flow and, assuming it is defective, will this be the only reason I would get leakage?
ANSWER Hi Billy. You will need to immediately trip the gas valve top lever to the off position for safety concerns. While replacing the new safety valve, make sure that you use a gas type thread tape (yellow) Or the gas Thermatic brand thread compound at the local hardware store. Make sure the gas tubing is tight. Then make sure the on/off lever is placed on when ready to fire. Safety valve part # 9763716. Thank You.
