GE XL44 - Gas smell when turning on

3 posts in this topic

This is an oven we bought when building a cottage 20+ years ago.  We rarely use the oven, but whenever it's turned on, from the first time it was turned on, there's a gas smell.  I initially called the dealer & was told that was normal.  After all these years, I'm thinking it's not!  If not, what can be done?  When I turn on the burners I do not have that problem.

Model #???? XL44 is not a model number.

 

Is this on natural gas or propane?

 

Standing pilot or electric ignition?
