Do you use distilled water in your iron. The filters may have bacteria on them, especially if the filter does not get very hot. Bacteria thrives in dark, wet environments. The bacteria has moved away from the filter into the iron, so changing filters would not help much for very long. I would buy a new iron that does not use filters and only use distilled water in it. Distilled water stops mineral deposits from forming inside the iron.
Do you leave your climate control in the Auto position. This is bad. What happens is the evaporator which is located in the vents never dries out and you begin to grow mold. Does it smell musty, locker room type smell.
Also since it came out the heat vent it could also be a leaking heater core. Check you coolant level and reservior. If low this is an indication heater core is leaking. It may not of leaked enough to tell but usually these are the only reason the vents would smell unless a rodent ended up there and died.
If this is a new range the odor is coming from the binder used to install the insulation in the range. You would need to put it through a self clean cycle of at least four hours to burn off this binder. I would suggest that you do it on a nice day when you are staying home and can open the windows as it will smell quite horrid for a while.
The smell has permeated the plastic, set a fresh box of baking soda in the fridge. Give it a few days and clean it with awesome or murphys oil soap. You can also use comet cleanser but if to much rubbing will scratch the plastic.
Other than the stench of fuel oil permeating every soft surface throughout the house, there are numerous health hazards associated with exposure to petrochemical vapors. Shut the unit off until you can get it repaired.
In the old days stoves were lit with a match. If this does not work for you it would be due to the stove's lines remaining "airlogged" after the move. The oven purged and ignited more easily because it has a much larger orifice, so the air bled more quickly. I expect if you were to leave one burner turned on long enough for the air to bleed out you will find it to ignite normally. Do not leave the stove to bleed unattended, and if you encounter a strong smell of the gas, turn off the burner, and ventilate the room as needed. The smell of gas would indicate that gas is present, it may be possible that a lead came disconnected from the ignition module in the back of the stove. Again if this is the case, the ol' match will light the burner. Be Careful!
You said,smelling gas at when stove is in Pre-light then going away.
In some stoves this is normal as long as it is a slight smell and it goes away when the stove or oven ignites. You know gas really has no smell, but this smell is added for our safety!! What is the Make,year ,and Model number of your range?
The gas must start somewhere until the flame ignites it. So we smell a slight smell of gas until it burns.
