Hi Bunny. Now, about your oven. If you spilled some juice into the oven on Thanksgiving. It will be dried up by now. However the lower burner in your oven should have a shield over it so that juice doesn't get onto the burner. If the oven is now working properly in bake mode, then the same burner will work in self-cleaning as well. Whenever you turn on a gas appliance you will smell an an oder for just a moment. Here is the reason. Gas is odorless naturally. The gas company intentionally puts what is called an "ODORANT" into the gas so that anyone can smell a leak. Sometimes, they put too much oderant in and they get quite a few phone calls about leaks. Of course, when there is a real leak, they can also find out about it and take care of before there is any danger. Your caution in not listening to your son's advice is wise. "Just do it" applies to Nike shoes, and sports. When it comes to safety with regard to natural gas, electricity, or any fuel (like gasoline) "Just do it" can be just fatal. Remind your son of that. I hope I've helped you. If you have any more questions of me, you are very welcome to contact me through this site. Best Regards, Mark
You gas oven uses a glowbar to both regulate and ignite the gas entering the oven. If this glowbar is faulty, it might let some gas into the oven but it is not hot enough to ignite the gas. That is why you are smelling gas. I would suggest to start by replacing the glowbar (and if this is not the solution, simply return the part for a refund). The part you are looking for can be found online here: http://www.partselect.com/PartDetail.aspx?Inventory=470129&SourceCode=1
It is quite easy to replace. Simply remove the free-standing pan on the bottom of the oven, unscrew the existing glowbar, remove the back cover from the stove and trace the two wires that belong to the glowbar and unplug them. Thread the two wires from the new glowbar through the opening and reconnect to the plugs at the back of the stove. Screw in the new glowbar and test. Most oven ignition problems are caused by faulty glowbard. Good luck.
