comment What is the best way to clean a brick paver patio?
I can confirm your pressure washer remark. I used pressure on my clay paver patio and the weeds got worse, _much worse_.

comment What could cause kerosene-like odor from a gas oven/range?
I'll mark this one as the correct answer because of misleading info in the question, and this one was sorta on the right track. So, what happened is that under my kitchen sink, I had a very minor leak which lead to the bottom of a can of mineral spirits RUSTING OUT. They were low-odor spirits, so only faint, but the entire area under the sink was wet with spirits -- even a sopping rag. I'm certain the volatile spirits which were concealed less than 6 feet from the stove must be to blame. I have cleaned out the area. Thanks for your help!

I was thinking that if it were something burning, it should have burned off, by now. But the odor persists.

I ran the burner without igniting it for a few seconds to get a whiff of the "gas" smell for comparison sake -- It's definitely not the same odor I get when running the burners.

It's a GE 5 burner sealed burner conventional oven/range. The cover seems immovable. I'm sure nothing was spilled. I'm starting to wonder if the gas company has increased the mercaptan levels.

@dbracey 5 years. And never had a problem before now.

Would the area underneath the range immediately get warm when a single stover burner, alone, was burning on med-low?
