Kenmore Range Major Issues

Kenmore Range Gas Smell

Kenmore Range/Stove/Oven Valve

While all gas ranges will have a slight gas smell when the burners first light, a persistent smell could be the result of a damaged valve or gas tube. You can apply a non-corrosive leak detection solution, or dishsoap mixed with water, to the valve or tube connection points. The solution will bubble is a gas leak is present. If you suspect a leak is present, you should shut off the gas supply immediately until the issue can be resolved.

Kenmore Range/Stove/Oven Gas Valve Assembly

All gas ranges will have a slight gas smell when the burners light. This is normal. The smell should go away quickly after the burner has lit. If you still smell gas after the burner has lit, or when the range is not in use, you will need to call a certified technician to fix it.

Kenmore Range/Stove/Oven Safety Valve

All gas ranges will have a slight gas smell when the burners light. This is normal. The smell should go away quickly after the burner has lit. If you still smell gas after the burner has lit, or when the range is not in use, it’s possible the safety valve is damaged and you should contact a certified technician to fix it.

Kenmore Range/Stove/Oven Igniter

All gas ranges will have a slight gas smell when the burners light. This is normal. The smell should go away quickly after the burner has lit. If the oven burner lights within 90 seconds, but you still smell gas, it’s possible the igniter is failing.

Kenmore Range/Stove/Oven Surface Burner Valve

All gas ranges will have a slight gas smell when the burners light. This is normal. The smell should go away quickly after the burner has lit. If you still smell gas after the burner has lit, or when the range is not in use, it’s possible the safety burner valve is damaged and you should contact a certified technician to fix it.

Expected Gas Odor

All gas ranges will have a slight gas odor when the burners light. This is normal. The odor should go away quickly after the burner has lit. If you still smell gas after the burner is lit, or when the range is not in use, you will need to call a qualified technician to fix it.

Kenmore Range/Stove/Oven Spark Electrode

While all gas ranges will have a slight gas smell when the burners first light, the smell will be more persistent if a stovetop or oven burner does not light promptly. If a stovetop burner doesn’t light within three or four seconds, it’s possible the burner’s spark electrode is defective. Inspect the electrode to see if it’s visibly damaged or dirty and replace if necessary.

Kenmore Range/Stove/Oven Gas Tube or Connector

All gas ranges will have a slight gas smell when the burners light. This is normal. The smell should go away quickly after the burner has lit. If you still smell gas after the burner has lit, or when the range is not in use, it’s possible a gas tube or connector has developed a gas leak. You can apply a leak detection solution, or dish soap mixed with water, to the connection points. If the bubbles appear, you’ll know there is a leak. You can try tightening the connection or replace the gas tube¬†and connector with a new one.
