Hi,

I am renting an apartment and have a problem with the stove. Two weeks ago there was a smell of gas throughout my apt. I had the FD out and they said everything is ok. Few days later and still smelling that faint gas/sulfur-ish and had gas comany out they looked the stove over and again said all is ok what concerns me is the right burner is burning a yellowish glow and the top of the range is extremely hot and when i lifted up the stove top i saw it was melting the paint which could be contributing to whatever i am smelling....here is a link to show what i mean
http://www.appliance...ge_flames.shtml

Reading that article which I forwarded to my landlord says to discontinue use of unit until a licensed gas tech can look at it (not reg gas comp) my landlord says I have other burners use them. He is being difficult because I am moving out my lease is up. My concern for the rest of this month is my safety with burner flame that color and it seems to be too high and could be causing damage by melting the inside stove top and I am inhaling all that in. I am scared for the rest of my stay here as I also had a carbon monoxide issue with the furn a few months ago.

I tried calling the building dept and there is nothing they can do and I am afraid to use this stove.

My apologies from the link I posted my flame looks like C

Hello, my olfactory-gifted friend. Speaking as a man blessed with four voluptuous wives, 17 children, 4 yaks and a goat all living in the same tent, I can tell you from experience that the female sense of smell is superior to that of the male's.

For example, we once had a leak in the gas pipe that leads from the underground tank that stores the camel dung and lime juice slurry that provides us electricity via my patented technology. One of our yaks is highly trained to detect such leaks and did not alert to this at all. For weeks, Abdullahmahoola insisted there was a leak. One day, one of my sons was digging a pit in the sand for his morning constitutional and it happend to be over the very spot where the gas pipe ran. There he saw the crack in the pipe union fitting! Not telling how much precious camel dung gas we lost in this fiasco! But Allah was merciful and kept us all safe.

So the moral of this story is that if you are smelling gas, then it is a near certainty that gas is indeed leaking, despite what the fire department infidels tell you.

Allahu Akbar!
