A very likely solution is that loose connections cause the Lugs (connections) to heat up. It is a good idea for people to ever so often check connections in your Breaker Boxes or even behind an Electric Ranges or any large electrical unit. (knock breaker for safety).

Melted plastic lid in oven - how can I remove it


Any oven cleaner, like easy off will work on this but it may take more than one application. You can actually begin with your hair blow dryer and a putty knife by heating the plastic up enough to scrape most of it off. Then let the oven cleaner do the rest.

Stove smokes when i turn the oven on


on the oven's smooth surface you should use a razor blade and scrap off the plastic (when cooled).. if the plastic melted on the burner, you may need to replace that particular element from a local appliance part store. easy to do.

How to clean after an oven fire


Cheryl,
If you can't scrape the plastic off then heating it up to soften it is about your only choice short of putting it back in self clean with a fan in the nearest window blowing outside to evacuate the smoke. Depending how bad it is and how cold it is where you live, you might even try freezing if off. Get it as cold as possible and see if the cold makes it easier to chip off. As far as the element, I suggest turning the oven on and letting it smoke and burn clean. Shouldn't be a very long process since the element will get hot so fast the plastic will drip off right away.
Hope that helps... Brian

Gas oven - - melted plastic inside


You can remove the bottom oven panel and look under it. All you have to do is remove the oven racks and locate the screws that hold the bottom panel in place. MOST ovens only have two of them. Once you have the crews removed, the panel slides back a bit, then lifts up. If there are any heavy deposits of melted plastic, remove it like you did before. Any residual material can be taken off with some fine emery paper. Wear a dust mask and vacuum all the dust out of the oven. DO NOT use this method on the oven wall as it may scatch it. This is only for anything that may have dripped below the oven pan. You may have an odor to the oven for a while, but as long as you have nothing else melted inside this should go away. Try running it on a cleaning cycle AFTER you've inspected the oven & cleaned out the remaining plastic. This will burn off anything left behind. I hope this helps you.
