Yes - there is a chemical put on the elements to keep them from corroding and appearing new until first used.
The smoke will go away after the first bake.
It is non-toxic.

EW30EW65SS Stainless Steel smells like burning electrical


Hello purrpplee - If the smell is coming out of the oven vent, more than likely it is something inside the oven that is creating the odor. Also, keep in mind that new cooking products can create a burning electrical odor when the bake and broil cycles are used as any residual coating or film on the oven liner and elements burns off. However, if odor increases consult a professional for an accurate diagnosis.

I have fitted a new element to my creda fan oven but when i put the oven on it smelled of burning is this normal


You can expect it to smell for a while, as it is a protective coating on the element.
Run it at a high temp for a few minutes with the door open if possible, this should get rid of the smell.
Hope this helps.

Oven door sqeaks and is hard to open all the way . Is there a way to adjust the hinges on the door? Everytime you open it, it makes a sound like metal rubbing on metal



Adjusting the oven door is best left for a factory trained tech. There is alot involved with getting the hinges and monitor switches working together in harmony. alot of times the bottom grate on the front of the oven rubs on the door and usually gives you the metal on metal sound. the bottom grate just pulls off. Then see if its still rubbing. Be sure that the oven door has all of the screws and they are tight before calling for service. There are 3 screws on the left side and on the right side without them you will have problems.

WARNING: Procedure should be done while
oven is hot. As a result, exercise extreme
caution when adjusting the door.

good luck Sean

Beeping driving me crazy


Ok, the first issue is the oven temp sensor. it is shorted. you will need to replace this device asap. Now, the second is is concerning the Self clean latch. it is not functioning and it is unable to be locked by the control(shorted). Use the procedure below to test this device.



1. If door latched:

1. Disconnect power from unit.
2. Check wires and connectors from control to door switch, then from door switch to control. If no damage to wires and all connectors okay, proceed to step C.
3. Replace door switch.
4. Re-apply power.
5. Press and hold any key down for 1 minute to clear F5 failure code from memory. F2 will appear. Press CANCEL and observe for 1 minute to ensure operation is correct.

2. If door not latched:

1. Disconnect power from unit.
2. Check wires and connectors from control to latch switch, then from latch switch to control. If no damage to wires and all connectors okay, proceed to step C.
3. Repeat steps A and B for door switch.

3. Measure door switch (door open = switch open small low voltage terminals). Replace switch if defective.
4. Measure latch switch (unlatch = switch open, CAUTION - oven light contacts are closed). Replace switch if defective.
5. If corrections are made in any step, reconnect power to control. Press and hold any key for 1 minute to clear R failure code from memory. F2 will appear. Press CANCEL and observe for 1 minute to ensure operation is correct.
6. If failure remains, disconnect power and replace control.

F7-E1 - Common Switch Wire Is Defective - This error occurs when common wire to latch switch and door switch is shorted.
Check all connections at control board and at the latch switch and door switch.
If connections are ok, then check individual switches as outlined for the F5 error code.
