Re: Strange Smell from Propane Stove
Sounds like you are about to run out of propane. At least that is what I've noticed with the small 1 pound canisters.
This is most likely the issue. The odorant in Propane, Ethyl Mercaptan, is less volatile than Propane, so it tends to become more concentrated in the cylinder as you reach the end. You probably notice it more in the stove than in the range because it is more confined.
