Appliances that burn fuel will always produce carbon monoxide –gas stoves are no exception. So, if you do leave it on for a while, carbon monoxide poisoning can occur. This is why several stoves are built or come with a vent exhaust hood suspended over them to reduce carbon monoxide accumulation.  

You can take the following steps to reduce your exposure to carbon monoxide around your home: 

  • Have carbon monoxide detectors around your home. 
  • Keep your stove’s vents uncovered and clean. 
  • Clean the stove as a whole regularly. 
  • Don’t use the oven with the door open 
  • Don’t use gas stoves as a source of heat. 

If any of the following occurs with your stove, you should have it looked at:

  • Burners aren’t lighting, but gas is active. 
  • Increasing carbon monoxide while the stove is on. 
  • Soot in burners. 
  • Burner flames aren’t blue (the right temperature). 

If your carbon monoxide home alarm is triggered, evacuate at once and wait for emergency services to arrive.
