+1. There is usually an oil / grease substance on the heating element so it doesn't rust in storage or shipment. Only way is to burn it off

There is a coating on the heating elements from the manufacturer, let it burn off.

Our new home has a GE XL44 gas stove the top works fine but when I use the oven it smokes and sets off the smoke alarms.The stove is over 3 years old Any ideas before I have to call the repairman in?


A gas stove shouldn't smoke. Is is clean? There is some grease that has eluded your cleaning efforts of interior surface?

Here are some tips that may help you resolve this problem:

Check the broiler flame. If the broiler flame is not adjusted properly, you could be creating soot from the burner flame.

Position the items that your are broiling lower so that they do not splatter grease up onto the broiler baffle.

Use a broiler pan that will drain grease and drippings down below the top surface.

Broiling many items will naturally produce some smoke. If you have the oven door closed when broiling then the only place that the smoke can go is up and out of the oven vent. If you partially open the oven door, some of the smoke will come out of the door opening.

You may have residue on the top walls of the inner oven cavity. Do you have self-clean feature on your range to clean the oven? Follow all of the procedures in your owner's manual to properly clean the oven using the self-clean cycle. This may clear out any undetected residue that could be causing excessive smoke during broiling.

Will the oven work without the broiler attached


You could use the oven without the broiler. It is customary that the oven will use the broil element to even out the heat in the oven for better baking but you could use if. it just may not bake evenly. There could be two things that is causing the broil element to stay energized. the control is not shutting down or there is a short to ground in the broil element. Have the broil element tested, it could just need replacing. If it is in the control that is a bigger problem.

My electrolux dual fuel range had to have the control panel replaced within the first 6 months, now it is out again, this time not under warranty and will cost me about $800. Has anyone else had this


Hi katnbiff - This is typically something that a professional would need to diagnose. Possible causes could be a faulty EOC (electronic oven control), thermostat, or an oven sensor.

Oven erupted like a blow torch why?


The broiler element burned into. Look at the top element and you will see a spot where it is rough, melted or burned. Replace the element by removing the two screws at the back of the oven and pull the wire out a little and unplug the element and plug the new on it.

BROILER ELEMENT WOULD NOT TURN OFF WITH OVEN


I just had the same problem! I would not have known that the broiler was still on, since the red light was off, except that the oven got so hot that the drips started to burn. The only solution was to turn off the circuit breaker.

This sounds like a serious safety issue!

My guess so far is that there is a broiler relay that has shorted in the on position and will need to be replaced. Until then I cannot use the stove or oven.
