Bebbie,

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.

Code comes of for leak evac the shop ran smoke and could not find a leak I got a new gas cap, I don't smell gas help?


Make sure the computer has been reset since changing the cap. Autozone, etc. will scan for free.

The smoke test should have caught the problem provided the shop looked at the gas tank too. There can be a problem in the electric solenoid valving for the canister which can be concealing a leak beyond the solenoid valving. If the solenoid is closing off the flow, then it can also close off the leak.

As for smelling gas, its the fumes which flow in these hoses, not raw gas. If the Vacuum system draws the fumes in, or if the leak is rearward, there is less of a chance of smelling the fumes. Rushing air from driving will dissipate many fumes.

Burning smell during drying cycle, coming from the inside back left grate. The grate appears discolored.


Usually when a gas dryer overheats it's because of a defective cycling thermostat or a clogged vent system. Clean any lint from the internal and external ductwork, and/or replace the cycling thermostat . If you don't clean out the lint trap frequently, your dryer may have small lint fires inside the cabinet. The smell from these fires can leave a strong odor in the clothes drum.

Also, if there are any solvents, paints, lacquers, etc. in use in the house, your dryer may alter and/or amplify the fumes to an odor unlike the natural fumes given by the solvent, paint, etc.

Here's what to do:

  • First, clean all of the lint from the inside cabinet and ductwork of your dryer.


  • Have a qualified appliance repair technician inspect the dryer for damage caused by any lint fire.


  • Move all containers of flammable liquids at least 50 feet away from the dryer. Gas dryers have a large flame when operating properly and can ignite the fumes of any flammable liquid or gas.


  • Then, try to clear the odor, by running a couple of loads of old rags or towels.

Exhuast smell(odor)


J,

If your Laser 56 is giving off fumes it is probably coming from the igniter gasket and the igniter guide gasket. The igniter gasket has broken and needs to be replaced with the new style. The new style cost about $12. The guide gasket is the fiber gasket around the hole the igniter goes in. It has seperated and all you have to do is smash it back together. If you have high temp silicone or furnace cement, you can use either to seal the crack. Any toyotomi dealer can get you the new igniter gasket # 17185580.

Good luck,
