Yes, you will get a lot of smoke if you have either waited too long to clean the oven or something has spilled in the oven and it was not wiped up in time. There is supposed to be a "smoke eliminator" element in the vent for self clean, if that element fails it can cause problems, but failure of the smoke eliminator is rare. Your issue may simply be that you need to run the clean cycle more frequently. You might have to put up with it once more and clean it up and then subsequent cleanings will not be as "smoky".

I hope this helps.

Kenmore self cleaning electric range issue with F10 error during self cleaning mode

You most likely have a failed oven sensor or the control / clock has failed. Self clean mode lets the oven get extremely hot and sometimes causes electronics to fail.

How do you start the self cleaning oven process on a kenmore stove purchased from Sears in 2009?

  1. Empty the Oven
    • Take everything out of the oven. Remove the racks and clean them with soap and water in the kitchen sink. Look for any loose debris such as foil or charred food and remove that as well.
    Oven Cleaning
    • To operate the self cleaning mode, find the switch on the range marked "Clean." The oven door will lock once the cleaning operation has started. Do not open the door until after the self-cleaning process has completed. It will take between two and three hours.
      During the cleaning process, you may see and smell smoke. This is normal because the oven is operating at a higher temperature than when it is cooking. The high temperature is reducing all the organic matter in your oven to ash. You will also sometimes hear popping sounds from the oven that is caused by the expansion of metal under extreme heat. This is normal for a self-cleaning operation.
      After the oven has completed the cleaning cycle, allow it to cool for a couple of hours. Once cool, take a damp dish cloth and remove the ash from the bottom of the oven. Wipe down the interior of the oven door and around the seal. Be careful around the seal so you do not damage it. Replace the racks back in your oven, and the cleaning operation is complete.
    Other Considerations
    • Clean your oven at least once every three months. If your oven gets heavy use, consider cleaning it once a month. Always run the self-cleaning cycle when you are home. Because it uses intense heat, it is best to perform this operation later in the evening or early in the morning.

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.

I have alot of smoke when i use the self cleaning feature

Self cleaning works by 'burning' all of the material it is cleaning.  If you have excessive grease other material in the oven, it will cause the smoking.  Either do the cycle more frequently or remove as much of the goo as possible with a cloth before beginning.  If you have a ventilator to the outside, turn it on and close the door to the kitchen to contain the odor.
