Oven emits gas smell only when maintaining set temperature

Our Electrolux Range works properly when getting up to set temperature. Once that temperature is reached, however, we will intermittently smell gas. It seems that when the oven kicks back on to maintain temp, the gas will not immediately ignite each time. This problem is infrequent, but worrisome nonetheless.

Any help or advice would be appreciated.

Welcome to the forums.

I would try replacing the igniter. It's the most likeliest cause of your problem. If not...always good to have as a spare.

I can give you more information if you post the model number for your appliance.
