Oil or chemical smell coming from gas oven when in use,

Customer Question
Oil or chemical smell...

Oil or chemical smell coming from gas oven when in use, residual when off. Not gas... or carbon monoxide. Started about a month ago, have had the stove 1 year. Eyes burning, nauseating smell.

Contractor's Assistant: What's the make and model of your oven? And can you guesstimate how old it is?

About a year, FPGF3077QFE Frigidaire Professional

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Only if simple fix...

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

No....what could be causing this smell ? Oven is clean, carbon monoxide detector is NOT ringing, and it's not a natural gas smell.
