I would consider putting it on high and letting it go until it quits smoking. When it cools down vacuum or blow away the dust.

SOURCE: Grill element stopped working.

I had the same. Dismantle the oven and see at the back side the connection wires for the heat element. Mostly one of the connectors is faulty. I fixed it that way.

Hi i have a siemens oven HB63AA620 the oven keeps blowing fuses about 6 mins into use! what could the problem be please? thanks in advance

If the fuse is hot immediately after it has blown then suspect a faulty oven element. If the fuse, the holder and surrounding area is hot then check the cleanliness and security of the wiring and connections in that area before going further.

If the fuse is not hot it is possibly a short circuit being caused by the heating of the element and the resulting expansion bringing a live terminal or wire into contact with something it shouldn't.

Smokes when using convection oven

There is no mention of this in the user manual. You could just allow it to burn off the residue, if you can stand it (that's how self cleaning ovens do it). Or, perhaps you could get the entire model number and go to to see if they have any information. They generally have complete exploded view diagrams of parts that will show you how it is assembled. I hope this is helpful.

Hi.. We recently moved house and after unpacking our LG it started making funny rattling noises. looked inside and the Grill in the top was loose. one glass tube above it broke. Can I have this replaced?...

You are quite right. The element will probably earth to the chassis and take out your mains power trip not to mention the glass fragments that may fall inside the oven.
Changing the element is straight forward. They come as a pair of glass tubes and after a bit of bending on the top of the case to release the clips fit easily.
Hope that helps.

How do you use grill

Hello, you cannot use any element that is metal, you may damage the oven. The oven can do some grilling. Put the setting to a point enough for grilling. But sad to say it cannot immitate the texture of grilled.

My new microwave give some smoke from top when i put in on in grill mode. can u advice me

It explaines that scenario in most instruction books. It is caused by the film of grease that is naturally occuring on the heating element and will disperse after first use.
Hope that helps.

My ifb microwave oven is getting hot outside while

Normally when u cook food in microwave the fod is cooked by microwaves, which means the heat is generated with in food. The temperature inside is never too hot and all the heat produced is absorbed with in the food.

On the other hand when the grill is switched on, a separate heatting element gets switched on. You can see this red hot element on the top side of inside of microwave. the heat from this element gets transferred to food through air circulation. But partof heat also gets transferred to the walls of microwave oven. This is the reason the wall feel hot during use of grill.

As i see ther is no problem with the microwave itself. Jut kep delicate thngs a bit away from the microwave.
