Peerless Purefire

I have a Peerless Purefire Boiler (3-years-old) that is omitting a gas smell, between the gas shut-off valve and the burner. I have checked for leaks on all of the joints, and no leaks are present. Even if the boiler is idle, the smell still exists. The smell only goes away, it I close the gas shut-off (which is why it's between the gas shut-off valve and the burner). Would anyone know what else could be going on here?

Thank You

Best to call a pro available 24/7. You can call your gas supplier - but they will lock off your gas supply at the meter, and tell you to call them when it's fixed. In the meantime, turn off the gas shutoff valve to the boiler.
