all ovens, when they reach temperature they go off and on to kip the temperature, but if you smell gas the oven ignitor needs replacing, the ignitor gets red hot to ignite the burner ,but when ignitor does not get hot enough, it will have a delayed, that's the reason you smell gas.

I had the same problem with the igniter glowing and I could smell gas no flame. I took the broiler out.
Not as hard as it sounds. Took out 6 screws I did not have to disconnect the igniter, because there is
enough slack in wire to just drop it down a bit. Looking where the burner tube came out I could see
the orifice. I connected a safety pin tin long twisses and stuck the pin into orifice rubbed it a bit. Put it all back together. Just make sure the burner tube gets set in all the way don't force it.
Good Luck Joe C.

Sounds like a weak ignitor is not opening the gasvalve completely. Only testing the amp the ignitor draws will confirm. It could also be a sticking valve. Have a professional verify, this is not safe.

The ignitor is not working right and is going bad....
have the repair man replace the ignitor, or DIY....
