Exploding Oven Causes Fire Damage in Logan Heights?

9/19/2023 (Permalink)

The glass on the front of a gas oven has broken during an explosion. We restore fire damage 24 hours a day in San Diego.

Our local San Diego City, South West team responds to fire damage emergencies throughout the year in Logan Heights. Although very rare, gas ovens can explode and cause fire damage. If you smell gas or suspect a leak, do not use any electrical switches, appliances, or flames in the area, as they could ignite the gas. Leave the house immediately and call 911 or SDG&E at 1-800-611-7343 from a safe distance.

Here are some of the most common reasons a gas oven may pose safety issues:

Faulty Gas Valve or Igniter: Gas ovens rely on a gas valve and an igniter to control the flow of gas and ignite it to produce a flame for cooking. If these components become faulty or malfunction, there is a possibility of a gas leak or improper ignition, which could lead to a dangerous buildup of gas and result in an explosion.

Blocked Ventilation: Adequate ventilation is crucial for gas ovens to ensure the proper release of combustion byproducts. If the ventilation system is blocked or restricted, it can lead to the accumulation of gas, increasing the risk of an explosion.

If you notice any unusual behavior from your oven, such as irregular flames, strange odors, or unusual noises, stop using it and have it inspected by a qualified technician.
