Re: Carbon monoxide from oven - what to do?

Actually, gas stove fire produces CO and CO2, and both can be lethal.

normally a gas stove is good. I would check the colour of your flame. if it is blue then it is fine, if on the other hand it is orange then something is very wrong. I will need some one with a gas burner license to correct this problem.

I am sorry but you are wrong. Burning natural gas or propane creates co and co2. Yes it will make more if it is not burning corectly but it still makes both when it is burning right.

Also co alarms do not go off until either levels reach an extremely high level of the levels are moderate for an extended period of time.
