When I turn on my oven the ingntor glows but
the oven does not turn on for a while. Then you will smell gas.
Do you know what this could be?
Answer Hello Eric. Test for 3.2-3.6 volts AC at the gas safety valve with the igniter turned on. If the voltage is there, you have a bad safety valve. If the voltage is low, you have a weak igniter and the igniter will need to be replaced. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
There is a faint odor of propane inside the oven when the thermostat is off. I checked for leaks at all connections and didnt find any ???
Answer Hello Thomas,
If you are having an odor of propane inside unit then more than likely you have a faulty safety valve that is not closing fully.
