Incident Details
  • Incident Description: Whirlpool Gas Stove will allow gas to escape with the burner not lit. If the control knob is bumped and moves to the side, in the on position, the gas will escape with the burner not being lit. This has happened multiple times and usually is not caught until there is a strong odor of gas in the room. Reported it to Whirlpool and they sent a third party repair person who looked at our stove and contacted Whirlpool to see if anything could be done. Whirlpool said they do not have stronger springs or controls that would correct this. This has happened multiple times and others I know who have Whirlpool Gas Stoves have had the same thing occur.
