I replaced the igniter on the oven, Turned on the oven to see if it worked and it did. Later I smelled gas (Propane) and my wife thought she did too. I turned off the valve on the tank outside and the odor is gone. I am going to turn it back on tonight when I get home to see if there is still a problem.

My question is, could the valve be stuck open some how? Could some gas have escaped from the valve and is this normal when the oven is turned on the first time after a repair like this? The igniter I ordered is item number 12872 from Repair Clinic. http://www.repaircli...303935066/12872

If you removed the burner tube to replace the glow bar...make sure you got the venturi back on the orfice spud...
Also, check the amount of LPG in your tank...a tank about to run empty will make a terrible smell from the appliance...
