Question about Frigidaire Kitchen Ranges
Kenmore elite dual fuel range C970 burners spontaneously go out while cooking. All of the burners do this at all settings below medium but only intermittently. We have adjusted the gas flow several times, changed the regulator and computer control pad, blew out gas line coming into stove, had gas company out twice to check gas line and regulator on gas meter. Everything seems to be ok but the burners still go out on their own. What else can we try?

It sounds like the repair man was correct. The only variable is the valve, if the rest of the burners are fine then it will be the valve

The oven gas valve coil has failed Need to replace. Go to repairclinic.com and put in the model and order the coil for the valve. It controls the gas valve.

There could be a couple things that would cause your symptoms, I will do my best to try and explain each one.
First off I am assuming from your dialog that everything is cooking the same on the top and in the oven, the times are the same the flames on the top burners look or sound no different. If this is the case the repair outside would not have a direct bearing on a 'problem' but it could cause the odor. Here is why...
Natural gas has no odor a chemical called Mercaptan is added to the gas to make a leak easier to detect. The amount of Mercaptan is regulated closely so it all is consumed in the flame. If there is too much you will get an odor from the flame.
The Mercaptan can line the inside of the piping that feeds gas from the regulator to the range. Working on the pipes can break loose some residue that may have a stronger presence of odorant causing you to smell it for some time. It will eventually go away.
The second thing that could cause this odor is if you have done any remodeling in the home, paint fumes, stains, oils many other chemicals can mix with the gas and cause this Mercaptan to not be burned up all the way and create an odor.
I hope this helps
