The solution is to disassemble the valve (with gas shut off) and clean and re-grease the plug. They make special valve grease you're supposed to use.
Thank you all I do think the valves are leaking upon further inspection. It is such a small leak that I have to leave the soap there and come back after 5 minutes and then I see a tiny bubble. Human nose is amazing. Anyway, Does anyone have a youtube video of how to disassemble these valves? I don't want to screw anything up more. Thanks.

Don't forget to check the coupling that is behind the stove...mine had a "T" that was originally for a catalytic heater that had been removed and had a shutoff valve but no plug & was only finger tight & I would sometimes get a slight wiff of odor. PS Really a dangerous situation !
