I get a Strong gas smell whenever I start the oven. Its a brand new unit and has done this since install. After the preheat is done it works as normal.
I don't get any smell when its not on, and nothing abnormal from the burners.
Is this a normal thing for this gas oven? Do i need to replace something on the new oven?
Thank you for your help.
We regret the trouble you have experienced with this gas oven. It would seem, from the description, that the gas is not lit immediately, when activated, and some gas flows before the flame ignites. However, as the smell regulates itself during operation, and it operates normally, it is likely not a cause for concern. However, if you believe the unit is having trouble, then a licensed technician may be contacted. To make service arrangements, you may either contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000, or you can check our Repair Provider Lookup on our website, at http://www.lg.com/us/support/repair/support-repair-provider-lookup.jsp.
