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?

We, the unwilling, led by the unknowing, are doing the impossible for the ungrateful. We have done so much, for so long, with so little, we are now qualified to do anything with nothing.
