NEFF OVEN PROBLEM - SMOKE AND FUMES COMING OUT OF OVEN

Yesterday was using oven as normal, set to medium temperature. We noticed lots of smoke and fumes coming from oven. Looked inside and could see nothing unusual. We turned oven down and continued cooking the meal. About 15 minutes later the smoke and fumes returned and set off our smoke alarm. We turned off the oven. Today we have examined inside the oven - the fan is working OK. Please advise if you can, what might be the problem. This has never happened before.

    It was not really a food burning smell, so maybe it was wires burning. I will try and take off the cover surrounding the fan to check. Thanks

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.

How do I get the door open after self cleaning and what do I push to self cleaning


Hi, Some ovens are self cleaning During the cleaning process, the oven heats up to a temperature of 900 degrees Fahrenheit. The extreme heat cooks off food and spills inside the oven, leaving ash that can easily be wiped out. The oven door locks while it is cleaning to prevent the door from being opened. Self cleaning ovens are better insulated than regular ovens to keep the extreme heat inside.

Instructions

Read the owner's manual that came with your oven before you perform self cleaning. Although all self cleaning ovens work basically the same way, there may be slight variations for some manufacturers and models.

Take out the oven racks. You need to clean the oven racks by hand, and then put them back in when the oven is done cleaning.

Wipe up any spills and messes inside the oven first, using warm water and a mild soap. Ovens smoke more during cleaning when there is food inside. Wash the inside of the oven door as well. Do not scrub the door gaskets, just gently wipe them off. Damaging the gaskets prevents the oven from sealing.

Lock your oven door manually if your model does not lock it automatically when you clean.

Open a window near the oven for ventilation. There is a certain amount of smoke when you clean the oven. The dirtier the oven is, the more smoke is created.

Turn the control on your oven to "clean" and set the timer for 2 to 5 hours depending on how dirty your oven is, and what the manufacturer recommends.

Wait for the cleaning to finish and the oven to cool before opening door. When oven is fully cooled wipe up any ash inside. If your oven is not completely clean, next time set the timer for longer. If your oven is spotless you might want to see if you can get away with a shorter cleaning time.

Tips & Warnings

Because self cleaning ovens are better insulated, they are more energy efficient when used for cooking. However, if you run the self cleaning feature on your oven more than once a month, you offset the savings you realized. With light to moderate use your oven should be able to be cleaned every one to three months.


Save on the electricity used with a self cleaning oven by cleaning the oven right after use at a high temperature. For example, if you set your oven to clean after making French fries at 450 degrees, it takes less energy to get the oven up to the required 900 degrees.


If you have pet birds, take them out of the house before cleaning your oven. Over heated cooking surfaces, oils and fats, can create fumes that are harmful for a bird's delicate respiratory system.

Hope it helped.

I dont want to use the self clean but I cant get off the baked on grease. What can I use?


Go to the hardware store and get scotchbrite pads that are medium in coarseness. The rougher the better, but not so rough as to scratch the finish. Use powdered laundry detergent to clean on a damp scotchbright pad. Spray oven cleaner works well but has a lot of fumes and is not as kind to hands.
Thanks

Model h4080 bm smoke and sparks come out of the circular cover? on the inside top of the oven compartment whats wrong and how to repair?


Hi,

The insulation on the wiring has broken down and the metal on the wires has come in contact with the metal frame of the oven...this causes the wires to short and throw sparks...
Remove the cover and repair/replace the wiring with wire that is rated for extremely high temperatures...
This often happens as a result of using the self clean feature on many ovens... the temperatures get too high and ruin the wiring...

This is probably not a job for the normal DIY'er....

Smoke come up from bottom of 3-month new smeg oven SA702X when try to heat up


Hi.



Smoke coming from the oven is not normal. Ensure that the smoke is not vapour coming from the food inside the oven.


If there is vapour coming from the hinge area, then ensure that door and hinges are installed properly.


If you get smoke from the oven, try cleaning the oven cavity, follow the instructions on manual to clean the oven.


If after cleaning the oven, there is still smoke coming from the bottom side, then call Smeg and have the oven replaced. There is one or two years warranty on the appliance.
Smeg support and service phone number is listed in the oven manual.



Regards.

Oven was heating and we got HEAVY smoke....


Nothing in the elements, thermostat thermocouples are gas filled, sensors have wiring inside, nothing in the liner or insulation. You said this was a stove, and some stoves have a vent that goes up through one of the burners on the top. If you had oil splatter or drip into this it can get into your oven. We do know that some blower fans on convection ovens have a sealed oil bearing, but there would be very little oil coming out of this (drops) and you will notice your fan getting noisier or running slower in the near future. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists

Smoke and fumes coming from oven


Sounds like you need to clean the whole oven as old grease and spillages will keep on burning and smoking.

SMEG A21X-5 Freestanding Cooker: Main oven has smoke/fumes everytime its used!


usual cause of fumes is if the grill is in the oven, when for example a roast is done, fat spits onto the grill element and the circular element and smokes. if you leave it on, the smoke will clear. some ovens have a fat guard which clips over the grill in the centre of the back panel to prevent this.
to clean glass, just use scouring pads - glass is virtually impossible to scratch
