My old Kenmore oven smells like gas

Hi, I just moved in to a new apartment in an old building- we've gotten some gas problems fixed already, but now our old Kenmore oven, model 362.71088990's oven smells like gas. All the pilot lights are lit (we think- two for the sets of stove burners and one under the oven) and we can't seem to figure out what it would be! The oven even warms up and all the stove burners light. The gas company already came and so I know it must have to do with the unit. Any suggestions?

Thanks so much

Most gas companies will inspect the stove and identify the problem. They do not, however, do repairs.

Consider the age of the stove versus cost of service call, parts, and labor versus buying a new unit. Safety is of the utmost concern here.

You could make a soap solution and try painting soap solution all connections, devices. etc. looking for bubbles. Be sure the kitchen is well ventilated when you do this. You need to find that leak.
