My new stove oven gave off strong smell when I used it for first time this morning? What is it and will this pass?

Model #7907242013 Kenmore gas self cleaning range

Bought stove 2 weeks ago. Only used stove top to heat stuff. This morning I tried the broiler/oven for first time.

I pushed 'Broil" button to high. Heat came on. I placed a couple pieces of cheese bread on clean cookie sheet and broiled them for a couple of minutes.

When done, I removed bread and hit "Stop" and oven/broiler turned off. Then I noticed a VERY STRONG ODOR which has now filled the house coming the stove.

I have a headache from it. I opened up windows and then ran a short errand. When I returned 20 minutes later and opened the front door, I was HIT with this odor.

Smells metallic, like something new burning for first time? I wish I could give a better description of the smell. I just want to know that I will be SAFE with this thing.

Please advise.
