Question about Frigidaire FGF378AC Gas Kitchen Range
When I turn on the stove I receive a odor of fume also the stove begins to smoke
FRIGIDARE 30" GAS RANGE
MODEL # FGFL67DBG
You didn't say exactly what it smells like but I assume it is not the smell of gas. This sounds like spillage of food into an area of the stove and the subsequent heating of it. Depending on which burner (or the oven) is involved, you're going to have to chase this down and clean it. Since there is minimal chance that this is electrical in nature, your other concern is a partially plugged burner caused by the mess.
Some notes: Be sure that any flame you do see has a predominantly blue appearance. If it is predominantly yellow, there is dirt which is restricting the air supply. This can cause carbon monoxide which is deadly.

In addition to what Bob Said, you may have some object or thing in contact with a hot part of your oven that you can't see. You will need a flashlight, rubber gloves and a cleaning solution such as dish soap and water.
First, turn off the gas supply and disconnect the plug from the power outlet. Then pull your range away from the wall and inspect in on all sides. Does there appear to be a lingering smell in one are? If so, check it out. Remove the pull-out warming drawer (see owner's manual for location of release latch) from the bottom and look inside. Is there anything there? Remove the oven door (see your manual) and inspect the oven area. Look at the surfaces (wall and cabinets) next to your range. Do they show any signs or scorching, or do they have a film or grease on them? If so, clean them off. you may have to give the stove top a complete cleaning. Be careful when cleaning the area around the igniters so as not to damage them. Look at the openings in the back of the range to see if they are blocked.
Look at the openings at the top rear of the stove next to the control panel. Are there any signs of fumes around the openings? If there are, it may indicate a possible problem with the wiring and it should be checked out.
