Sounds to me like your burner might be sooted up or partly blocked by foor debris, causing incomplete combustion.


If you smell gas (more than just a very short burst second or two whiff when lighting the stove/oven), you should not use it until fixed. And if there is gas smell when off, pull out far enough to turn off the gas valve at the wall - or if unable to do that yourself call your gas company and they will generally do it for free.


IF a strong smell when stove is off call fire department.
