WHITE FILM INSIDE OVEN

My 86 year old mother had a larges casarole splatter all over the inside of the oven. She used the sel-cleaning unit. Now there is a white like film which seems to be baked inside. I've tried oven cleaner and brillo pads at they won't even come close to touching it. Any clue?

Your mom may have used a non-self cleaning cleaner to try and clean this oven in the past. you wont have much luck getting rid of the stain but using cleaners like easy-off or mr muscle may help you reduce the staining.
it could also be that an element has shorted out and "burned" the surface of the oven. if the oven doesnt heat properly then check the elements for a rough or burnt out area. that does happen but its probably just going to be stained as it sounds like you have tried to do the cleaning.
p.s. i like mr muscle better then easy-off.

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.

Hi ewood,
You can look up your ge owners manual at ge.com . If the oven has stopped working chances are you have a bad ignitor. the part number is WB2X9154 . The part is $69.99 and I have this item in stock. Shipping will be $6.50 in the continental US>
I hope this will FixYa. If you have more questions please let me know. I can tell you how to remove the old ignitor if needed.

Self cleaning caused interior glass to crack


hi there,

this is called thermal breakage. basically, when the mfg. makes the glass, they either don't cook it long enough or let it harden long enough during manufacturing. remember, the glass is supposed to withstand over 1200 degrees, which is temperature during self cleaning. have a technician replace the door glass, as warranty should cover this.

thanks

My GE stove model #JBP35D0J1CC serial #VG231035Q is about 21/2 to 3 years old. When useing the self cleaning the oven door and window get a burnt splatter and thick black tar like build up you cant clean...


It sounds like it's not cleaning long enough-anything less then four hours just burns stuff on- or it's not getting hot enough. I would try Mr. Clean Magic Eraser on the splatter. It cleans burnt on stuff off mine great.
