Is it alright to unplug my gas stove from electric outlet when we are not using it?

Why???? No reason whatsoever to do that.

If it's a timer and you can't figure it out, pulling the plug and putting it back in will probably cancel it. Getting the manual online is Even better. But in any case pulling the plug on a gas stove is safe.

Maybe it would be worthwhile to find out what controls the oven by either googling up the PDF Owners manual for your brand and model of stove and read it. Something is switched ON and that memory does not go away like on a computer. While your method will shut the whole thing down, it does not fix the issue. It may be in the clock settings. I know I had that with an electric stove(so it was partially on) If you hate reading, you could always go to the store that sells your model toy and ask the service guy what it could be. 15 minutes is an odd thing. Once every 24 hours I can see clock

The electric is for the controls only. It should DEFAULT to shutting off the gas when the power is out, so an artificial power outage should be safe.

The reason that I want to unplug it is because the oven comes on when I am not using it every 15 minutes and stays on for about 5 minutes then goes off. It does this all day. I figure if I can unplug it then it will not automatically come on every 15 minutes for 5 minutes. If there is a timer on it, I have not been able to locate it.

It won't hurt anything, but why?

Yes. But it's unnecessary.

Well, if it's for a long time, but going through the motions (pulling the stove out - they're quite heavy) every night would just be silly. However, I DO unplug things like toasters right after I use them.

Sure. You just have to reset the darn clock each time you plug it back in.

Absolutely fine to do that. I unplug mine when I vacation.
