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 just used the self cleaning option for the first time and the entire house filled with hazy smoke and a very strong , almost chemical odor - what is wrong?


The self cleaning setting goes to a very high temperature ,it is this high temperature that cleans the oven ,the remains that was left in the oven.during the cleaning cycle would have likely caused the hazy smoke and strong odour . Recomendation : use your vent fan , remove heavy residue from the oven before starting the cleaning cycle.

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.

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.

Smoking Kenmore


Hello oliver909
Welcome,

You said,Smoke is coming out of the back of my gas Kenmore oven. Oven is clean - no spills/debris. Ran clean cycle and broiler did not smoke. Warmer drawer at bottom, so nothing spilled there. Soon as you turn it on, downstairs is full of smoke. Sometimes after preheat goes off, smoke clears and its fine. But I'm afraid to use it because last time I saw a flame inside.

If your afraid to use it, do not hesitate to call service. Nobody wants a fire!

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
