Customer Question

We often smell gas in the kitchen. A few months ago a new igniter was installed in the gas-powered oven after the oven failed to ignite. My wife started smelling gas on occasion. I wonder if there is a small leak. Do your technical service folks have a portable sensitive natural gas sniffer? If so, can I get someone from PG&E to do a sniff test in the near future?

So does she smell gas when none of the gas appliances are running or only when the appliances are running?

And is she sure the smell is coming from the appliance?
