Out of the Blue

After a few days using those belly belts to control the Gunnar-man's marking have been successful at keeping him from peeing on the stove, though it's not for lack of trying: Leaving him to his own devices results in a wet "diaper" every time. I'm hopeful that he will eventually grow weary of failing to mark the stove and/or walking around in a soggy belly belt, but so far that's not the case, and with his remarkable adaptability, this may never happen, but at least we have the mess under control for the moment, and that adaptability is showing through in just how little he is bothered by having to wear it.

I suspect that he's still detecting his previous marks and trying to re-mark. The whole area needs to be thoroughly cleaned with bleach or ammonia to destroy the organic marking molecules. I would do the entire stove, adjacent appliances and cabinets, and entire kitchen floor. For the stove, pull out the bottom drawer and wash it separately, and pull off the oven door and wash that separately too. Then pull out the stove and mop the floor under it with ammonia. Dogs noses are so sensitive that even an errant splash can be detected and retrigger the behavior.

After that, you might want to use doggy gates to keep him out of the kitchen.
