Two months ago had a gas smell in kitchen, called the gas company and they did something with the gas stove (I was not there) to fix it. Now recently there have been two or three instances where a strong gas smell occurs upon start-up.  The oven works fine once going but apparently it sometimes does not ignite until after release of a fair amount of gas.
