    Obviously people aren't reading the "ELECTRIC" part of your question. I have the same problem with my electric burners. I get a light black dust all over the stove top after I use the burners. I'm thinking it's coming from the burner coil itself, but I can't find anything on the internet about this. Oddly, this never happened with my old Kenmore electric range. It just started with this new Kenmore I bought a few months ago. Probably cheap, defective material from China. I wish you the best of luck getting an answer to your question.

    Has anyone received any helpful answers to this issue with the black dust from stovetop electric coils? We are experiencing the same with a 2 month old Kenmore range. Thanks.

Hello friend, thank you for your inquiry!

From the information you have provided you are experiencing black soot on your Frigidaire stove top. This could be items from your pan or pot falling and being burnt by the elements. You may also want to inspect the area around the stove to assure nothing is falling onto the elements. If you need further assistance please comment back and I would be happy to help you. -Matt

SOURCE: oven produces soot when running, broiler ok, stove top ok

Al, you need to seat the needle valve on the bake. Remove the bottom drawer, right below the bake burner you will see the nut just below the air shutter adjustment. Turn this nut clockwise a few times, it might seem hard but just do it. Then try the bake again, you should have a nice bluel flame. Tenbears.

Got wrong rings or something my saucepans and pans are destroyed with black soot after cooking ?

If you're using a gas stove, the gas air mixture is wrong. If you're using electric or induction, it's the residue left on the pans when cleaned.

There is black soot all thru my oven and surrounding cupboards in my kitchen.I do not use the self cleaning feature,is this normal for this type of stove?

This is NOT good. Soot comes from something burning, and that's definitely not good. Do you smell smoke or something burning? Is the stove electric or gas? I would have someone pull the stove away from the wall and check to see what is burning. It could be wires, but something is very wrong. Please don't use the stove until you have it checked out, you could start a fire. Really, please have this checked out ASAP!

How do I adjust the flame on a MGC5430 gas cooktop? Flames are too yellow and cause black soot on bottom of pans. Doesn't seem to have an air shutter adjustment

Is this unit set up for natural gas or propane? New stoves usually come with ORIFACES for both gasses. They would install between the on/off knob and the burner tube under the stove top. They may be tapped to the under burner area of your stove. If you lift your top stove cover you may find them. If you don't find them, you may need to purchase the correct applications for your stove. GOOD LUCK FRIEND.

The gas stove fire burns with black soot and is only 1 month old

Gas should not burn with soot, if it does it is dangerous as poisonus fumes will be produced as the air/fuel mix is wrong.
Call a qualified gas engineer to check out the installation and make it safe.

I have a pellet stove and the glass soots up very fast is there a way to prevent the soot build-up

Most of the pellet stoves I have seen have a part that pushes air up in front of the glass. See if you have a part that you are not sure of where it goes. If you do, try it in a way to push air in front of glass. You may have to contact the company that produced it and get one from them. Another thought, there may be holes in the floor of the stove that have been plugged by ash or something. If there are, clean them out. Good luck...Lee

What could be wrong with a gas stove hot point(2 yrs old)that has lots of black in the oven when using and also black on bottoms of pans when using burners on top? it just started doing this...

The flame is 'yellow tipping'. This means there is incomplete combustion and will leave black soot on everything. Did you recently start using propane? If so the stove will need to be converted to propane use, or the incoming gas pressure is too high. You may need a gas professional to check the gas pressure.
