We bought a samsung gas stove and a handyman we know installed it for us. It replaced our old gas stove. We have been using the burners and all fine, but when I went to use the oven while it was on it smelled weird. Is this normal for new ovens or can it be a problem?

Yes it is normal when you start to use the oven for it to have a odor , you have the inner oven liner that has a thin coating of oil on it to keep it from rusting in storage.

the bonding agent in the insulation will also have a slight odor. and the burners and other metal components with in the oven will be heating up and any oil or coatings will be burning off when the oven is in use..

You may have this odor for several uses before it starts to lessen .

If you have any questions just reply back to me.
