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.

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.

sell cleaning on ovens just causes problems like this, it is normal. it cleans by burning everything inside at high temp. i always recommend cleaning the old fashioned way, once a year , with oven cleaner, or as req. roasting an oven itself to clean it is insane i think

Alarm not ringing


From the information you provided it sounds like something inside has shorted out.

While you were cleaning (if using a liquid spray), it may have leaked into the control panel. Liquids and electronics don't like eachother. The spark and smoke are a sure sign of this.

With most Frigidare appliances the number "1" indicates a contol fault. Such as a shorted keypad. Internal checksum my have corrupted control relay shorted or bad probe. Check probe and probe wiring and replace if bad. Power off for 30 seconds. If fault returns replace control.

It will most likely need repair by a qualified appliance technition.

Microwave is smoking when I use it as a convection oven


It seems to be self cleaning... burning all the oils that coats the inside from microwaving food that wasn't covered. Clean the oven well and to remove bad smells put lemon juice in a bowl and microwave.

Smoke comes out of top when cleaning oven. Oven takes way to much time to cook. Oven does not cook evenly. Items cooked in oven are burnt outside and almost raw inside.


hello jjm... these ovens have two heating elements. when one is bad they still heat but they bake way too slowly. this is the problem here. the fix is to replace the bad element but in my repair service I always replace both heating elements since when one goes the other is usually not far behind.

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 Kenmore


Hello oliver909
Welcome,

You said,Smoke is coming out of the back of my gas Kenmore oven. Oven is clean - no spills/debris. Ran clean cycle and broiler did not smoke. Warmer drawer at bottom, so nothing spilled there. Soon as you turn it on, downstairs is full of smoke. Sometimes after preheat goes off, smoke clears and its fine. But I'm afraid to use it because last time I saw a flame inside.

If your afraid to use it, do not hesitate to call service. Nobody wants a fire!
