Hello Snapper and Welcome to the Do It Yourself Web Site and the Gas Appliances forum.

Sweating, which is actually condensation, is a normal byproduct of burning. Well insulated ovens and certain ambient temperatures are prone to cause oven sweating upon warm up.

Nothing to be concerned about as long as it evaporates as the ovens warms up and there isn't any odors.
