Question about Lofra Kitchen Ranges

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.

  I believe they make an oven cleaner for self clean ovens.  Don't try regular oven cleaner.  Ruins finish.

SOURCE: the element in the oven has been smoking whenever

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.

Bought a house with Technica oven (5-6 yrs old), turned on grill and it smoked badly. All smoke going into room - should it be sucked up into oven vents ?(slots at top of inside oven when door open)....


The grill probably has some type of oil or cleaning agent spilled on to it. the only way i have done it is just burned it off. But I suppose you could pull the burners and wash with soap and warm water. It's much nicer to have a exhaust vent leading out through the range hood to the outside So if you have the time and money it's a relatively easy job to do. Good luck

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.

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.
