I have a new verona gas range, tonight we lit the oven and it smoked for 20 minutes with a harsh chemical odor, is this normal? I had to turn it off.

sounds normal. most ranges have 2 hr (give or take) burnoff period when it is first used when it burns off any residual chemicals from factory. just make sure you've taken all plastic/packaging and wipe down the interior first.

hopefully the gas smell isn't too strong and posing a hazard to you. If it is, reach behind the range and turn the valve until it is across the gas line and not parallel to it. You should be able to raise the top of the range from the front and see all the workings underneath. There you will find the pilot light.
