burning odor when electric oven is turned on

I have a Maytag electric stove that we have had for 10 years. For the last 3 months when you turn the oven on it smells up the entire house, Smells like your cooking a dead aninal somewhere and the smell will remain for an entire day. It does it also when I turn the burners on but not quite as bad. I have looked in, moved , wiped out everything>

There is nothing< Cou;d it be possible that there is an animal under the floor biting thru the electric line to this stove and every time it's turned on they are getting fried causing the smell. It is horrible. Someone had even mentioned mouse pee-but I wipe it out everyday. Could this catch on fire and burn my house down ?ConfusedCoolCryEmbarassedFrownKissLaughSmileSurprisedWink
