Hello. My name is ***** ***** I'll be helping you with your appliance question today. Please wait a few moments while I review your question.

So I don't thing you gave me the correct model number because something isn't adding up. You're talking about smelling gas and an igniter not glowing in the oven---but this model number is ***** dual fuel oven with electric elements in the oven and a gas cooktop. Can you please recheck the model or look at the ceiling inside the oven and tell me if it has an electric element or a gas burner with igniter mounted to the back of it.

I took the bottom kick plate off and got the number from inside. This unit is six gas burner gas two burner broiler with gas convection

Hmm ok so do you have a glow igniter that looks like the part below?

Or do you have a spark igniter like below

Also, if you turn it to broil and wait 3 minutes does the broiler heat?

First my igniter is not the glow type, the broiler does light, but the left burner has not lit for a long time
