Has there been any painting or floor sealing done in the general area lately?

Although rare, burner degradation does occur. Since this happens after usage, my only solution would be to replace the gas valve. It is shown below for your model, and you may click to view its price, etc.  Be sure to handle the fragile ignitor carefully when changing it over to the new burner assy.
