This is NOT good. Soot comes from something burning, and that's definitely not good. Do you smell smoke or something burning? Is the stove electric or gas? I would have someone pull the stove away from the wall and check to see what is burning. It could be wires, but something is very wrong. Please don't use the stove until you have it checked out, you could start a fire. Really, please have this checked out ASAP!

I have neff double oven ,only had it two weeks and the top oven which i use the most looks filthy- i have had it on self clean at least three times but the floor of oven is burnt on and looks awful. W


Self-cleaning ovens are not "squeaky clean" after the cleaning cycle has run. Any spilled food or debris in the oven before it cleans will be left behind as ashes, soot, etc. and you will need to wipe it out with a damp cloth afterwards. If the residue is black and sticky then the cleaning cycle isn't running at a high enough temperature. Please refer to the manufacturer's instructions to make sure the cleaning feature is working and being operated properly.

Does the broiler still work? If not, the broiler element has burnt thru and needs to be replaced. Here is the part to order.

I noticed soot in my lp gas oven that had been clean. concerned when it started to ruin my food I decided to run the self cleaning cycle again. My whole house filled with toxic soot. My eyes were on fire...


Normally soot is from a range that hasn't been converted for the gas type, like natural or propane. It may be set up for natural when you're on propane or visa versa. Has this range ever worked properly without sooting?

Instructions for cleaning oven Please.


The instructions for using the self-cleaning feature on your range is listed on pages 18 thru 21 in your owner's manual. If you do not have an owner's manual, you can download or print a copy for FREE at managemylife.com. Just type in your model number under the "Manuals" link on the web site and your manuals are listed in .pdf (Adobe) format.

The Terms of Conditions and Use of this website prohibit us from direct email contact with consumers. I apologize in advance and hope this will suffice.

If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.

Self-cleaning feature


Check your owner's manual, but most self-cleaning ovens should not be cleaned with chemicals. The finish can be permanently damaged. You might try running the oven through the self-cleaning cycle more than once. It will take some time. Make sure the room is ventilated properly since the cleaning cycle produces a lot of heat.

CAN I CLEAN A SELFCLEANING OVEN WITH BAKING SODA AND VINEGAR. I HAVE PET BIRDS AND THE FUMES FROM A SELF CLEANING OVEN ARE WAY TO TOXIC TO TAKE THE RISK.


It is best to clean a self cleaning oven with anything except the self cleaning feature.
The self cleaning feature will eventually destroy other parts causing repair.

Inside the oven door there are some stains from liquid spill that went through the vent, how can I clean it.


If your oven is self-cleaning, consult the owner's manual for instructions on how to use this feature. The self-cleaning feature works by heating the interior of the oven to a temperature so hot that it incinerates the residue inside the oven. Normally, it is not a good idea to clean the interior of a self-cleaning oven with a spray cleaner; however, refer to your owner's manual or contact the manufacturer of your oven for further information.

To clean a non-self-cleaning oven, use one of the many oven cleaners that are available at grocery and hardware stores.

Black burner


theres no danger.its the residue from the gas.if using propane,it burns very dirty and leaves soot.if natural gas its the same but not as bad.you can simply just wipe them down with water but use an old rag because the soot is very dirty.if using an electric oven/burner the discoloration of the element is from the heat and is normal.also if the oven is gas the soot will eventually clog the holes/orfices in the burner and it will cause some issues.hopes this helps--let me know.
