Dejonga Jul 2, 2013 02:02 PM

Just moved into a house that has propane gas stove/oven. I turned on the oven to preheat.. When I did that open flames appeared in oven.. Please tell me that's not normal. It has pilot light..

    That is kind of how a gas oven works. How high were the flames? Did they come up above the floor of the oven?

        Probably should call a repairman then. I've had a propane range for 15 years or so. You can see the flames if you look but they should not be high "blazing" flames.

        If you think it looks wrong you should have it checked out. Maybe nothing, maybe will blow you to kingdom come if you ignore it.

        I will say that I have never had a propane range with a pilot light so I may be completely wrong on the whole deal.

      If you see flames inside the cavity of the oven, call a repair man. This is not how gas ranges should work.
