Hotpoint oven smokes after one minute

I moved into an apt complex this past summer where the maintenance is just awful. I have not been able to use my oven. I cleaned it throughly and there are no signs of anything but it smokes. After having it on for one minute the whole apt is smoky and the smoke alarm is shouting off so it has not been used. Can someone tell me what might possibly be causing the smokling. I did tell the super who told me to clean it (of course I did for hours anyway) and that it was new but we have not been able to cook at all. Now with cooler weather coming and the Holidays, I really need an oven. Any suggestions as to what I may do? Thankyou. I truly appreciate any ideas on this. I am a female and not super handy but I sure do try :) thanks again!

Sounds like build up of fat and grease on element.
Only thing to do is leave it on and it should burn all the fat off.

Whirlpool self cleaning oven super capacity 465

If there is a lot of grease it may be good to wipe the excess out. The excess grease could ignite if not it can sure smoke up the house.

Random intermittant crackling sound from Hotpoint electric oven

This could be insulation on the wiring or more importantly the connecting spot might be frying. In any event, disassemble it and check into it.

Hotpoint oven won't heat above 250 degrees broiler works fine as well as the stove top

either its the oven sensor rod located at the top of the ovens cavity,or your bake element could be getting a hot spot which is when it gets a discolored spot in the element and can no longer pass sufficient current to heat the oven past 250 degrees

My Hotpoint electric oven no longer heats up. The top oven works but not the main one. How can I fix this?

HI, seen this before with the ge/hotpoint elec. ovens i worked on when i did apartment maintenance. One could be a bad control switch(knob u turn to turn on oven).turn on broiler and see if it comes on,if it does not that could be it.If it comes on it u might have to replace lower element,but could still be control switch not working for that section.But it will one or the other.

Recently moved into a new house and the oven's smoking every time we turn it on! It starts smoking about 20 minutes after turning it on and gives off a toxic, eye-stinging smoke! Smoke comes out of the...

First, call a master who understands ovens. Maybe he can fix it. You should not try to repair it yourself, as it is likely to make it worse. If this does not help, then it will be easier to buy a new oven already. In this way, many problems can be avoided. To be honest, I have never encountered problems with household appliances after moving to new homes. I usually use services that provide a full home inspection before buying it. https://www.thinspect.com.au/ is a good example. I hope you can solve your problem. But still, I highly recommend that you just buy a new oven, so you can save a lot of time.

Self clean for 4 hours -- do i need to leave my apt?

The first time you do a self clean it does smell weird and you do not need to do it for 4 hours change the setting to 2 or three hours. This uses allot of ellectricity to do the cleaning. I usually just use a oven clenaing product for light cleanup. If you have a pie that has spilled over or something then it works great. The Smell is a bit of ash and smoke from all the things that you are incinerating inside your oven.

Stove smokes when i turn the oven on

on the oven's smooth surface you should use a razor blade and scrap off the plastic (when cooled).. if the plastic melted on the burner, you may need to replace that particular element from a local appliance part store. easy to do.
