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.

Not smoking


Traeger grills just will NOT smoke at temps much above 200 degrees. I have to stand by my grill continually in the summer to keep opening and closing the lid to let the heat out. That also lets the smoke out. I also have turned the grill off and on to try to maintain the temperature at 180 degrees where it smokes best and cooks low and slow. It's less of a problem in the winter months. Then I find myself setting the temperature higher turning it from low to medium and back to maintain the temperature I want.

Very warm heat escaping from oven door


Hi dont know if you have solved this but our cooker was doing something similar.on one side and the dorr seal was fine. I turned off the mains, took the side panel off and it turned out the insulation inside had slipped down. I bought some more from eBay.co.uk and replaced all of the old stuff and now I have no problem....1 year on. Hope this helps

My food is covered in black smoke. The whole inside of the grill is also covered. I just cleaned gril with warm water and a brilo pad. (no soap) Could it be bad propane


You described exactly what never should be done... never use water to clean your grill.

Described symptoms indicate insufficient air supply to the burners, please remove burners and dry clean them with wirebrush and blow them with pressurised air if available to remove dust and rust particles, check if all holes are free of debris, water caused bit of rust to clog these holes. This cause insufficient air supply and in return, unburnt fuel cause sooth to appear on all surfaces, including food.

Grill after use should be just wipped off with old newspapers, fat prevent grill from rusting, when you start grill next time, you just splasch it with beer (no joke!) and whipe off excess. Acids and alcohols in beer will dissolve stale fat and clean whole grill area, beer as well will enhance flavour of barbecued food as well.

This advice is true not only for your particular grill model but for any grill or barbecue, regardless of mode of operation, be it propane, gas, electric, wood or whatever heat source you use.

Hope your next food will be delicious, that is recipy for my best teriyaki (marinade) for your meat:

Produce:
1 tablespoon freshly chopped ginger
1 freshly chopped medium size onion
2 cloves freshly crushed and chopped garlic
2 tablespoon honey
1/2 cup soy sauce (japanese or chinese!)
1/4 cup of water

Method:
Mix all ingrediens well, slice your met and add to mix, leave in cold for at least half hour (I prefer for about 4hours), skew and use as a shashlik marinade, or just as marinade for your grill steak, delicious anyway :-)!

Hope recipy will brighten your day.

Do I need to preheat the oven when cooking in the iven When using as a grill the grill smokes all the time


hi, what you need to do is turn the grill on and leave it on what is happening is all the steam and fat and grease form the cooking you have done in the oven has risen and stuck on the heating element the grill uses, so open your windows and turn the grill onto its highest setting and just leave it after a while the smoke will stop.

You need to do this so that any food you cook using the grill doesnt smell of the smoke thats burning on the grill element.

Dont worry you wont do any harm to it this is a very common problem with combo ovens and grills and the same goes for microwaves with the grill feature so dont worry to much its what happens over time if you dont use the grill much.

So just switch the grill on and leave it it can take upto 20 to 30min to stop smoking but after its burned off all the grease and fat etc it will stop smoking and stop smelling so dont worry everybody who has one goes through this same problem.


let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok.

Its best you do this once a week or so to ensure that it dont build up to much as it can really stink the whole place out and if you cook food without burning it all off your food will taste like the smell witch believe me isnt nice, so just leave it all to burn off leave your windows and doors open and after about 20 min you should find the smoke will stop and the smell will go away.

You may find it only takes 5 to 10 min but dont worry no matter how long it takes your not doing any harm your just cleaning the element.

Dont try cleaning it with cleaning products as this can cause harm to the element and could taint any food with the cleaning product you use.

The only real help you can give is that before you turn it on to burn off the grease use a stiff hand brush and brush the element to remove all the dried on loose bits this will then make it quicker to stop smoking.

But other than that just leave it and it will sort itself out.

My grill on my oven is melting the knobs and the heat is that hot i have to stand away from the cooker i have to switch the knobs off a tea towel and it fills the kitchen with smoke is this covered under...


I assume that you are grilling with the oven door open and not closed, if you are grilling with the door closed, then this will cause an overheating problem,if this is not the case, then I would suggest that the grill regulator is faulty,. and needs replacing.
It not covered by health and safety rules.
Please leave any comments you may have, as I like to know if my comments are appropiate.
Thanks.

Smoke comes out of grill on electric cooker


This sounds like some of the power wiring, or leads which go to the "electric" burners. the smoke is a wire based or very chemical based smell. that in it self is toxic. when it comes to something as major as this you should for your own safety contact the seller if it is under warranty. The voltages and risk or burns electrical and heat wise are not worth the risk to your person and or life and or property.

Paint inside lid peeling off when I cook


From Weber.com Don’t worry, it’s not paint. The inside surfaces of our grill lids are not painted, they are coated with baked-on porcelain enamel which cannot peel. What you are noticing is a deposit of grease and smoke that collects during normal use. During use, the grease and smoke vapors slowly oxidize into carbon and collect on the inside of your lid. This deposit will eventually peel, and looks very similar to paint. The peeling normally starts in the center of the lid and spreads outward. It may come off in sheets or flakes, and is shiny on one side and dull on the other. These carbon deposits are non-toxic. But you might want to regularly remove the build-up. Fortunately, the peeling is easy to remove. Simply brush off all loose particles with a brass brush before you start grilling. To prevent future build-up, after every grilling session, while the grill lid is warm—not hot—wipe it with paper towels or a mild soap-and-water solution.

I believe this is working as designed! The downdraft fan always turns on when I run my own grill!

Gas grill overheated


I might have an Idea to what happened. All grills have a drip pan, most all new grills have a drain for grease that falls from our savory meats. Well, if, (not saying that you haven't) but if, you have not cleaned the drip pan, there is still grease left over that gets absorbed by food droppings. IF this is the case, you had a ticking time bomb of a grease fire. The grill did not overheat, the grease caught fire. You said your grill was a year old; so the regulator did not go full blast and when they do go bad they do not let gas pass through.

Not trying to preach to no one because I have done it myself, never leave your gas grill on and unattended. I hate to say it but even the owners manual says it.

I hope I did not come off the wrong way and I hope this might give you an idea/thought of what happened.
