Question about Maytag MGC6430 Gas Cooktop

1 Answer

High-pitched squeal/whistle noise from range

High-pitched squeal/whistle noise from the cabinet under Maytag gas range. No gas leaks that I can smell. Have tried the following with no results:
1.) Have sniffed all over the range area and cabinet for any gas leaks. Had roommate do the same. Closed doors for awhile, then opened and immediately smelled under the range and still can't smell even faint trace of gas smell.
2.) Unplugged power to range, turned off valve.
3.) Turned on all four burners full-blast to release any possible pressure issue.
4.) Have tapped the metal hose/casing, wiggled it, tapped on the valve on coupling up top.

Any ideas on what to check next before calling appliance repair people?

Whirlpool gas range whistles when burners are turned on. What is the problem?


Your gas inlet valves are turned up to high or there is air in your system. Most of the time the burners are set either to high or to low. Meaning that not enough or to much gas pressure is being forced through the system.

All of the burners on my range started flikering at the same time and they were off. I could not stop them. I saw a little smoke escaping from the rear right burner. It finally stopped flickering and now...


yikes .. you have a very dangerous condition there ... ventalate the area and turn the gas off immediatly.. there is a shutoff valve somewhere in the gas line coming to the stove top .. if you cant find that then shut off the gas at the gas meter or call the gas company to do that for you (its free) ...
your problem is likely a loose pipe or cracked manafold .. it is leaking gas under the cooktop .. i would replumb the unit and check for cracks .. or call a professional .. your unit comes with a 1 year warranty or an additional 4 years if you bought extra coverage .. that probably wont cover a bad installation if thats the problem (unless the repair company installed the unit to start with) .. but will cover the stoves inside plumbing ..
your stove is not safe the way it is .. if you can still smell gas then you shouldnt be in the house until the gas is turned off ... windows should be open .. dont turn on lights or other things that can ignite the gas .. and absolutely dont try to relight the burners until the problem is fixed ..

Slight propane leak in JDC8536


gas is not in the diy domain as it is more deadly than electricity
call in a gas fitter who will have a gas sniffer to determine the exact position of the leak and carry out the repair
by the time you can smell the gas , it is already at the explosive mix with the air

The smell of gas


call for service immediatly. dont ever mess with a possible gas leak. it is more than likely a slow leak at the shutoff or the safty valve. your local repair company should have a combustible gas detector. to pin point the leak.
