Resolved Question:

Hello - we just purchased a new home, which has a Jenn Aire JGW8130ADB wall mount oven installed. We can smell a faint odor of gas by it (house is set up for LP). Does this model use a pilot light, or is it electronic ignition?

If there's an odor of gas, does that indicate a faulty gas valve?

Only if the igniter doesn't light the flame at the burner tube...Remove the cover to the burner tube...Make sure the flame lights every time the igniter comes on...If not then replace the igniter...The igniter might glow but not enough voltage is present..
