Kenmore / oven turns itself on

1 MN, United States

This morning we woke up to a slight natural gas smell and the Kenmore gas range was burning hot. The knobs were all set to "off" and we hadn't used it in several days. Our only conclusion is that it turned on by itself. The oven/boiler was so hot I'm surprised there wasn't a fire already. We had to shut the gas valve off to get it to go off and cool down. If this had happened when we were on vacation something, I'm sure the house would have caught fire. We're lucky there wasn't a rug nearby or that would have caught fire for sure- it was SO hot- it may have been on all night. I've called Sears and they said there aren't any recalls for this stove (only 4-5 years old). It's not under warranty anymore, so we will either have to pay a repairperson or just get a new one. After this scare, I want it out of my house asap.
