Is the oven burner alight at that time?during the baking cycle we sometimes start to smell gas.
Is the oven ignitor glowing at that time?
Those are the observations that will be necessary *at the time of the complaint* to try to determine the cause.
The burner should be alight whenever the ignitor is glowing (or within 30-60 seconds of it first being powered). The ignitor glowing but the burner not lit could allow unburned gas into the oven under some conditions... and only while in use (which is the only time the ignitor should be glowing).
You can read about how common gas oven ignition systems work and the observations and tests necessary to diagnose problems with them at the following link:

If a leak were there the smell should be constant not just when the oven was in use. That should be a big clue.The main gas line leading to the back of the oven was checked for leaks, and there were none.
In an attempt to correct this immediate problem or just sometime in the past?I have recently replaced the bake ignitor
Did he measure the amperage draw on the ignitor circuit? What was it exactly?Our local repairman is scratching his head
