So, some mice dug around in the insulation around my MGR6875ADS lower oven.
Now, whenever there is a flame ignition, after a few minutes there is a *whuff* and flame erupts from behind the case, from a slit through which I can see the ceramic wool insulation.  There are no evidence of leaks upstream of the safety valve.  Could it be a leak between the safety and the nozzle?  Could this be a leveling issue?
There was definitely some insulation that had been dragged into the air intake area beneath the burner assembly, but I was surprised to find that clearing it out did not solve the problem.
I have not tested more than a few minutes, but the issue appears to *NOT* occur when the burner plate or baffle or whatever is removed.  If I let the gas burner free-burn without the shroud on it, it burns correctly.  If I place the plate back over the burner, poof.
What sort of issues could cause this?  I'm used to stove issues being fairly obvious, but I just cannot figure this one out.  Thanks in advance for any help.

If that flame is coming out of a hole in the oven I would shut the gas off and not sue this at all until you have a tech look at it... These are the types of issues that really need a certified and experienced technician look at.
