Hello Roland,
happy to help you out!
You must clean by way of wiping excess spills and materials dripped or spilled before self clean is operated. Or there will be smoke even during the self clean process!
Also do not wait till there is build up galore to self clean your oven!
If you spill or splatted and drip in the oven that day,
start the self clean after you do the dinner dishes!
More info can be found int he owners manual!

Why does my oven smoke when in use


If the top lifts up to clean you should check under there. Its like a drip pan and if anything got spilled on the top and went down it could be the problem.

I just used the self cleaning option for the first time and the entire house filled with hazy smoke and a very strong , almost chemical odor - what is wrong?


The self cleaning setting goes to a very high temperature ,it is this high temperature that cleans the oven ,the remains that was left in the oven.during the cleaning cycle would have likely caused the hazy smoke and strong odour . Recomendation : use your vent fan , remove heavy residue from the oven before starting the cleaning cycle.

Cant remove glass cover to replace bulb on Simpson La Stella Atlas series oven


I have a Simpson Atlas Mira. Was having a hard time getting the glass cover off too so looked on the net for a solution. Couldn't find one so I persevered and sorted it...
The glass cover has a screw-off thread (like a glass jar) which unscrews anti-clockwise (lefty loosey). I had to give it a good few wiggles and pulls before it would start unscrewing. I also had to use a damp towel to get a proper grip - it's a slippery little bugger - but I got it in the end!
Hope this helps someone - good luck!

Where does the charcoal go?


please clarify your problem, i am providing only general solution, any "contraption" of that type is divided into several sections, on the very bottom is ash container, above is fire and at the very top is food compartment. food compartment is usually insulated from direc fire.

as a fire you can use any "sweet" hardwood, any fruit tree cuttings, branches, kindlings are fine, so is hickory, oak will turn food bitter, do not use it then, do not use mapple, birch or ivy either, they will turn food very sour, do not ever use grass, pine or similar, they do spoil food acrid and turn smokehouse acrid for very long time.

do not allow vigorous fire as this will raise temperature to high and you will be baking not smoking!

as a rule of thumb, per 1000g of mass is required 1h of smoking, temperature, depending on meat/product (you can smoke cheese, fruits and others!) should be between 60centigrade and 85 centigrade, lower the temperature (optimal for virtually everything is about 72 to 75 centigrade), better product and better taste, but extended time!

prepare your meat according to favourite recipy, smoke, prepare pot with boiling water, immediatelly after removal from smoke, immerse your meat (especially susages for about 10 sec into boiling water, allow to dry and store in coolroom or dry it above your "normal" cooking stove in your kitchen, it will not spoil, it will just become more dry.

now, how to care, afte smoking, empty ash and fire "department", wipe clean all working surfaces, prevent from direct rain, you can use bit of lard ot grease food compartment, but it is not necessary, experience will teach you more :-)

Oven smokes


If it smoke smells of burnt food or grease you have something on the surface of the element which is burning off.

If it is an acrid smoke it could be the element itself is on the way out or the fan (if it is a fan oven).

You need to make a visual check of the element/fan to ascertain their condition and clean or replace as necessary.

GE monogram double oven display getting extremely hot


Usually the knob type controls uses the bulb for temperature regulation. There is usually only one adjustment available - otherwise the thermostat has to be replaced. - that dial with the temperature graduations on it. the whole unit - the bulb in the oven is connected to it.
