I have been told that I might need a new valve for my stove. I started having a problem with my stove about 1 yr ago. Every time I had the stove on for 1 hr or more the carbon monoxide detector in my house would go off. We had a technician come and he put in a new igniter but still had the same problem.
In the last few weeks the carbon monoxide detector goes off when the oven is on for just 15-20 min. The technician came back and changed the burner. Before I buy a valve I want to make sure this is the problem. All of the burners work fine and the stove works it just sets the carbon monoxide detecter off. I know the detector is not faulty I have had it tested. Any ideas?
ANSWER Hello Jennifer. Check and see if there is alot of yellow tips on the flames. If so, you can try adjusting the flames. If the yellow does not go away, you will need to replace the pressure regulator 74006429 and the gas valve 74006427. If the regulator is bad, it could have damaged the gas valve with to much pressure. Hope this helps.
