Question about Kitchen Ranges
This morning, as I boiled some water, smoke started pouring out from under the range top of my Maytag electric range. In addition, the top of the range got REALLY hot -- and stayed hot for a looooong time.
The smoke smelled greasy, but I haven't spilled anything on it recently. I pulled out the coil, and there seemed to be no reason for the smoke. The smoke itself seemed to come from BELOW the drip-pan area.
[UPDATE} I gathered up the courage and left the element on for a while, carefully using aluminum foil in place of a drip pan. No bad smell. The initial odor was just the residual burning off of the last of the rust/dust. I was worried about directly contacting the hot element with the foil so I made sure it didn't directly touch the element but that was probably an unnecessary concern as aluminum foil has a very very high melting point
