I am pretty sure this is just the steam escaping. Smeg ovens seal so evenly that the steam stays in the oven.

SOURCE: Clean very greasy Belling oven

this happened to me a couple times. Once it has cooled down clean it up with any of the following:
1: Wet Sponge (loose stuff)
2. Steel Wool (stuff that is hard to scrape off)
3. Oven Cleaner Spray (Yes, they actually sell this at the store)

I think i've actually used some Lycosl wipes before... but not too much becuase I didn't want my food tasting like it.

Once you scrape/wipe up all the stuff at the bottom you should be fine.

Cooking is determined by 3 things so let's look at what they are and what they do.

They are:

  1. The Fan Oven Element - This is very much the same as a light bulb only instead of giving off light it gives off heat. Like a light that is switched On or Off by a wall switch, the Element is switched On or Off by a Thermostat according to the temperature required. In short if the element fails your oven will be cold.
  2. The Fan & Motor - This sucks the air in through the centre mesh and circulates it around the Element and pushes the heated air out of the top, bottom and sides of the back-plate. Fan ovens cannot heat properly if the fan is not running OR if the fan runs too slowly as the motor starts to fail.
  3. The Thermostat. - This is basically an On/Off Switch that responds to the temperature in the oven. If The Fan is running correctly and you are achieving some temperature in the oven, then the fault will be with the Thermostat.
I hope this Helps - Terry

SOURCE: oven smoking

smoke is caused only by fat getting onto an element and should stop after a while, ie when all the fat is burnt off. this is usually a problem with the grill element.
you can get a finjhe mesh grid which fits over the centre vent in the back plate and this should help

SOURCE: Oven not working properly

I just solved this problem with my GE gas range. I waited forever for the oven to warm up. The igniter would glow, light the burner and burn for a minute or so and go out. It would repeat this process till oven reached operating temp, which took forever. Problem is in the igniter. It may be glowing, but it is not letting the gas valve stay open, because it is not hot enough to create resistance in it to keep gas valve open. I had replaced the thermostat thinking it was the problem. The good part about it was I could take it back because my buddy works at supply house. Once the igniter was replaced, the oven fired up and stayed lit till operating temp was reached. It will also hold the oven temp much better. Oh yea, the igniter will stay glowing while the burner is on. Hope this helps.

Ignis AXL 905/IX oven and prob is food is cooking on top but not below. Two elements at top. Inner on when in oven mode, outer on in grill . Bottom of oven not warming evenly and burning top of food


Your bottom element is not working and that is why foods placed on top heat up but the undersides are not affected as much.

You need even heat on both sides of the food. Get a new element and replace.

What can I do about the hobs overheating - when on, they are only on the highest heat and can't be turned down.


THE only solution is to replace the regulators that control the hotplates.
Could prove to be expensive.

Do I need to preheat the oven when cooking in the iven When using as a grill the grill smokes all the time


hi, what you need to do is turn the grill on and leave it on what is happening is all the steam and fat and grease form the cooking you have done in the oven has risen and stuck on the heating element the grill uses, so open your windows and turn the grill onto its highest setting and just leave it after a while the smoke will stop.

You need to do this so that any food you cook using the grill doesnt smell of the smoke thats burning on the grill element.

Dont worry you wont do any harm to it this is a very common problem with combo ovens and grills and the same goes for microwaves with the grill feature so dont worry to much its what happens over time if you dont use the grill much.

So just switch the grill on and leave it it can take upto 20 to 30min to stop smoking but after its burned off all the grease and fat etc it will stop smoking and stop smelling so dont worry everybody who has one goes through this same problem.


let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok.

Its best you do this once a week or so to ensure that it dont build up to much as it can really stink the whole place out and if you cook food without burning it all off your food will taste like the smell witch believe me isnt nice, so just leave it all to burn off leave your windows and doors open and after about 20 min you should find the smoke will stop and the smell will go away.

You may find it only takes 5 to 10 min but dont worry no matter how long it takes your not doing any harm your just cleaning the element.

Dont try cleaning it with cleaning products as this can cause harm to the element and could taint any food with the cleaning product you use.

The only real help you can give is that before you turn it on to burn off the grease use a stiff hand brush and brush the element to remove all the dried on loose bits this will then make it quicker to stop smoking.

But other than that just leave it and it will sort itself out.

Large oven burning food on top shelf when in fan assisted mode


Always cook food in the middle of the oven. Assuming this is an electric oven, there is a heating element up there that will cause burning of food, much like a broiler works.

If you must cook that high up in the oven, then cover the food your cooking with foil.

NEFF OVEN PROBLEM - SMOKE AND FUMES COMING OUT OF OVEN


Take the cover off that is surrounding the fan and you will probably find food or something there or on the fan blades. If it is not a food smell, then there is probably some wiring that is burning. I suspect that there is food behind the housing of the fan.

Oven not cooking evenly, outside is getting brown but inside is undercooked


Sounds like the igniter is not operating at full capacity. What happens is that the oven does not light when it should. Instead, the oven is cooling down much too far so when the oven does light it has too heat more rapidly. This causes the outside to brown/burn long before it should.
