That's almost the smell but 100x worse!! Smell is still in house this morning.
Appliance Technician: Kelly, Appliance Technician replied 7 months ago

Is the smell like an electrical odor, like maybe the insulation from wire is burning?

Is it possible mice have gotten in the insulation surrounding the oven?
