Open Question

Lofra LOO6001 top element really smokes - how can it be cleaned?

The top element smokes badly, I need to open the oven door and put the exhaust fan & ceiling fan on for about 10 mins before using the oven because of the smoke, and it usually sets of the smoke alarm that is in the hallway around the corner. It is only 18 months old, but I can't find the manual. I have scrubbed the bottom, back & sides, but how can I get the top element out to clean above it? The smoke is coming from there and the top element itself also.

what happened was food build-up is causing the smoke. you can get elements at any appliance parts store. just make sure to have the model number ready when you get there. you can also go to sears.com to order.

Can i use one of those spray products to clean my oven , glass door and heating element. I have the problem of the oven smoking if i raise the temp over 220 to cook things such as pork.


If you're going to clean the element use just plain soap and water with a good rinse.. Anything you put on the burner that doesn't evaporate perfectly will smoke and may be bad for you when you open the door to see how things are going.

Hello,

What this simply mean is that there has been a problem from the fan either from the wire connection or from the Cole of the fan connected to the fan motor.

There are two ways of over coming this type of problem below are the recommendation to solve the problem

First of all set the oven on self cleaning from the below instruction or make use of your owner manual to operate the elf cleaning
Please after the self cleaning you most allow the oven to cool down to it best before opening

Some ovens are self cleaning During the cleaning process, the oven heats up to a temperature of 900 degrees Fahrenheit. The extreme heat cooks off food and spills inside the oven, leaving ash that can easily be wiped out. The oven door locks while it is cleaning to prevent the door from being opened. Self cleaning ovens are better insulated than regular ovens to keep the extreme heat inside.

  1. Read the owner's manual that came with your oven before you perform self cleaning. Although all self cleaning ovens work basically the same way, there may be slight variations for some manufacturers and models.
  2. Take out the oven racks. You need to clean the oven racks by hand, and then put them back in when the oven is done cleaning.
  3. Wipe up any spills and messes inside the oven first, using warm water and a mild soap. Ovens smoke more during cleaning when there is food inside. Wash the inside of the oven door as well. Do not scrub the door gaskets, just gently wipe them off. Damaging the gaskets prevents the oven from sealing.
  4. Lock your oven door manually if your model does not lock it automatically when you clean.
  5. Open a window near the oven for ventilation. There is a certain amount of smoke when you clean the oven. The dirtier the oven is, the more smoke is created.
  6. Turn the control on your oven to "clean" and set the timer for 2 to 5 hours depending on how dirty your oven is, and what the manufacturer recommends.
  7. Wait for the cleaning to finish and the oven to cool before opening door. When oven is fully cooled wipe up any ash inside. If your oven is not completely clean, next time set the timer for longer. If your oven is spotless you might want to see if you can get away with a shorter cleaning time.


SOLUTION 2 IF THE ABOVE RECOMMENDATION DID NOT SOLVE THE PROBLEM

Then you will have to replace the hole of the fan from the oven i.e the fan is need to be service

Hope this help?

Thank you and thank for using fixya.

Smoke coming from electric oven element


if it is the upper element is smoking when in use then its usuall grease/fatty deposits that have attached itself from previous cooks.. the only way to rid is to open doors & windows then turn to max temp to burn off... 5-10 mins usually suffice dependant on quantity. looks bad initially but soon it will be heating clean again..

Smoking Fan Assisted Oven


Is the smell a food smell or other smell. If it is food, then some food has gotten behind the blower motor. Clean behind it good. Even some small particles have gotten in there somehow. You can also feel thye sufaces of the oven and tell if there is some buildup.

Cleaning above the grill element


I would not advise you to remove the element unless you feel competent to do so.
Best thing to do is to put the grill full on and let all the fat and grease burn itself off.
you will not hurt anything by doing this.
Make sure you have the griil door open and your house door.
Plz rate my solution.
thanks.

Oven smokes


If it smoke smells of burnt food or grease you have something on the surface of the element which is burning off.

If it is an acrid smoke it could be the element itself is on the way out or the fan (if it is a fan oven).

You need to make a visual check of the element/fan to ascertain their condition and clean or replace as necessary.

Oven Light does not turn off


The problem is due to a faulty door switch, this is part of the door lock mechanism. The reason is that the oven thinks the door is open , this puts on the light and stops some of the oven functions ie the fan the fan element and probably the bottom element.
The answer is to fit a new door lock mechanism.
