Smoke from top of stove

The stove was used at various times today with no problems. Just about two hours agor it was used and smoke bellowed out of it. After clearing the smoke I looked at the bottom and saw only a little burnt material. The burnt material was cleaned as best as possible with kithen cleaner. The stove was turned on again with smoke coming out. A closer look showed that the smoke was not from the burnt material, but from the underside of the plate where the stove top burners sit. Does this mean the stove heater element is having problems?

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.

I replace a ignitor on my stove to a new one but it smoke why


Not Enough Information. If an electrical box smokes obviously that means the electronics are severely damaged. We stock dozens of ignition assemblies and they do not smoke. Are you referring to the grill smoking? An electrical box cannot smoke unless it is fried or is on fire. If the stove is smoking you need to clean it and/or burn it off. smoke is caused by grease.

Could be that you have blown the piston rings, firstly i would remove the rear silencer, as 2 strokes bellow out exsess smoke and loose power when the silencer becomes blocked due to carbon, start and run the bike and check without the silencer, furthermore to eliminate the exhaust itself is blocked, undo it from the cylinde

Mr. Muscle Kitchen cleaner will remove the smoke. It won't hurt the plastic. Just make sure to either wear rubber gloves or wash your hands soon after cleaning off the smoke residue. It will make the skin on your hands / fingers slick and then dry after your done. Let the cleaner sit for about a minute before trying to wipe off the smoke residue.

White smoke from one tail pipe


As u know - that smoke is oil . can be cause by restricted breather or oil filter, worn valve guide or seals. or a bad piston ring which seems the most likely if its just coming outa one pipe. A compression test will tell ya if thats it

Excess amounts of Smoke coming out when in use


Locate where the smoke is coming from first. Run a dry test with just the stove. Many times excess smoke can be either oven cleaning chemicals burning off, or debris on the elements.
