Our new home has a GE XL44 gas stove the top works fine but when I use the oven it smokes and sets off the smoke alarms.The stove is over 3 years old Any ideas before I have to call the repairman in?


A gas stove shouldn't smoke. Is is clean? There is some grease that has eluded your cleaning efforts of interior surface?

Here are some tips that may help you resolve this problem:

Check the broiler flame. If the broiler flame is not adjusted properly, you could be creating soot from the burner flame.

Position the items that your are broiling lower so that they do not splatter grease up onto the broiler baffle.

Use a broiler pan that will drain grease and drippings down below the top surface.

Broiling many items will naturally produce some smoke. If you have the oven door closed when broiling then the only place that the smoke can go is up and out of the oven vent. If you partially open the oven door, some of the smoke will come out of the door opening.

You may have residue on the top walls of the inner oven cavity. Do you have self-clean feature on your range to clean the oven? Follow all of the procedures in your owner's manual to properly clean the oven using the self-clean cycle. This may clear out any undetected residue that could be causing excessive smoke during broiling.

Smoking oven


If this the first time the oven is used it is nornal to see smoke as the oven burner and racks are coated with an oil film to prevent rusting while in storage. Other than that look for something stuck on the burner assbly clean any heavy spills on oven bottom. On your next nice day open windows an turn on self clean cycle.

Oven smells like gas when on


If the oven is new and has never been used, it should be cured before using. There is a curing your oven page in all manuals before use. You have to wash and burn off all the chemicals used in making the thing. Are u sure it sets off the smoke alarm and not the carbon monoxide alarm. Be careful some alarms are equipped with both now a days and people cant tell the difference. Get your gas company there to check it. Carbon monoxide is undetectable to the nose and is deadly so please be very careful! If there is smoke and u have cured ur oven then there maybe some old food on the burner, remove the bottom plate and check. If there is no smoke and no food on the burner then u need to change ur ignitor. It maybe old, cracked or both. Typical repair cost on high end range is 300 - 400 for 1 ignitor. Good luck. And I urge u to see if it is Carbon Monoxide!

Self clean mode causes a lot of smoke!


If the oven was really dirty, particularly with grease and unsolid food stuffs, then you will see smoke come out.

The self clean features basically incinerates the food residues in the oven. With incineration comes smoke.

If you feel there is a problem with the electrical circuits, then we would recommend that you call an appliance technician to inspect the unit for any faults.

Reply back what you find.
