It isnt so much the gas being released as when it is being lit that is your problem. It sounds to me like the glow bar igniter inside of your oven isnt getting hot enough before the gas is being released. If the glow bar doesnt get hot enough to ignite the gas before the gas is released then the gas builds up a bit while the glow bar is still heating up. When the glow bar finally gets hot enough the gas is ignited and you get the Whoosh (basicly a small explosion of the built up gas) You should change the glow bar igniter of your oven. This will resolve the problem.

Hi, maybe i wasnt specific enough. The flame goes along and all is cooking nicely, without any drama for 5 minutes or so ( no real pattern to the timing) then unprovoked !!!! goes whoosh and out. Never a problem to light initially, nor relight after the whoosh.
I am sorry but I do not have the information you require. I will opt out and another expert may be able to assist you. Sorry for the inconvienience.
Hi,Welcome to Just Answer, My name isXXXXX will be helping you with your appliance issue today.
If this lights initially correctly and has no problem with 5 min. or so it can still be the igniter like the other tech said, if the igniter loses its amperage after so many minutes like you said it's random the burner will go out with a woosh , how long have you had the stove and also what is the model number?
Hi Bryan, Did I say that it doesnt matter either, how many of the 4 burners are going? When it goes whoosh, they ALL go out. Neither can I seem to identify 1 culprit of the 4. Its a Chef brand -Torrens Co-ordinate Series= model number worn off inside oven plate. Imagine theres more info on rear of oven but cant access that easily. Between 10 and 15 years old i imagine. We weren't here when it was purchased.
PS Cooked using 2 flames for 15 mins last night without a hiccup. Very random.
