There is no way to light the oven manually. The gas valve will not open until the oven ignitor draws enough current. But replacing the ignitor will fix ya up.

staunch has no idea what he is talking about. It has nothing to do with the igniter, or it would fire up at all. Since you are saying that your oven does ignite and heat up, it is the internal gas valve that is the problem.
The way all recent (20 year at least) are designed, the gas valve internally can not open unless the igniter is working, for obvious reasons ... boom! The igniter circuit allows the gas valve to open, once it detects that the igniter is ready to "ignite" a gas flow. BUT, the valve can be bad in the AMOUNT of gas being delivered. Your's is allowing too much gas, more than can be burned, hence the smell.
DON'T use the oven until you have a qualitifed tech come out and replace the valve. It is very dangerous for you to do it yourself.

The following link explains step-by-step how to replace an igniter in a gas range:
The replacement process is pretty standard with nearly all gas ranges. You can go to appliancepartspros.com for reference drawings to assist you as well. The oven burner assemblies are listed under the "Cavity" section.
If you have not purchased an igniter yet, the part number is AP4041245. If the connector plug does not match, there should be instructions that direct you to splice the wires using ceramic wire lugs. DO NOT use standard wire lugs. They will melt due to the high heat in the oven. The wires and connectors on these oven igniters are heat resistant. If ceramic lugs are not included with the igniter, you may have to purchase them separately. The part number is AP3440631.
This is a fairly simple repair, but if you have questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.
