Gas oven smell

My new gas oven smells funky when in use, like a factory coating or something is burning off. We have had it for six months and it still smells. It is not a natural gas smell. We have to open window while using the oven. Please help, its driving me crazy.

    I have the same gas range and the same problem. I can't use the oven now because of the strange smells (smells like strong chemicals). In fact, I recently made pizza and my boyfriend couldn't eat it because he said it 'tasted like chemicals.' Does anyone know what this might be? I'm preprared to fix it if it's possible. I'm just worried that I'm going to have to replace my oven. Thank you in advance for any help you can give!

I have the same issue. I live in an apartment, and I had maintenance come by to check it out. They say that it is carbon (white, ashy) built up around the burners from where the gas is burning. They clean it, but then it comes back. I'm wondering what else it can be because I feel like death every time we use the oven. And I know, I shouldn't use it! Well, I like to cook, and I'm stuck in this crappy place until the end of my lease. I don't know what to do either. If my maintenance actually figures out the problem, I'll let you know.

When I turn on the broiler it smells like plastic burning

check the bottom of the oven to see what's down there and clean it out. Check the broiler coils themselves to make sure they are not coated in something. Things that smell like burning plastic, often are, which is poisonus. Also things that smell like burning plastic often cause spontanious electric fires, which are WAY dangerous. Figure it out before using the broiler again. The life you save could be your own.

I have a maytag model mmv1164ws when you turn it on makes a buzzing and smells like something burning!

Something is burning, there are high voltage parts in a microwave oven and they wear out. You probably need a new diode. Part number WPW10492276 google it

I smell something burning when the oven is on...not as "eggy" as gas but I have a pregnant wife and I'm scared to use this thing.Is it just a new oven smell?

I would have a service call made and have the service technician check for correct installation
Smells ( that cannot be attributed to burnt food, gas ) should be investigated as they are the early warning signs of a problem
at least you will have peace of mind and may be advised as to a product that can be used to remove the smell

What to do when oven smells like burning plastic

new ovens do have a certian amount of "burn in" to do when there new best to heat up and cool off oven several times before actuall food use to remove any construction solvents and "cure" all the materials inside

also ck to make sure you removed all the shipping packing sometimes this gets left inside by accedent and smells something horrible when heated ( caution :: Foam degrades to cyanide deadly gas when heated!!!!)

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 a six month old Miele oven - H5140/5240 BP - not sure which. It smells atrocious after it has been on for an hour or so, whether on conventional on fan forced cooking. really disappointing, and a...

when the oven etc is new it will make a smell. put the oven on the hotest temp and open a window to burn off the oil grease used when the oven was fitted, then when it cools down give it a good wipe round inside with some oven cleaner then the smell should be gone.

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.

Gas oven smell

Have you checked the temperature with a hand held or stand alone thermometer? First thing I would do is get a cheap oven thermostat, set the oven to 200 and make sure the oven is not being controlled.

This smell, does it sour the flavor of whatever you are baking, broiling whatever?

Sounds to me the oven might be over temperature, if it checks out against another thermostat is there any breakin procedures in your manual or cd?

Check that out, next have you called the oem?

cALL EM AND TELL THEM WHAT YOU ARE EXPERIENCING, MAYBE THEY HAVE A BAD COATING,

If that goes no where, get a mailing address, ,get a frozen pancake or waffle if it is sticking to the food, cook it, wrap it hot in plastic rap then aluminum foil and mail it to them.

Once they take a wiff of it you will get some relief,

I am concerned you might have some kind gas that could prove to be unhealthy, so get this dealt with, the three suggestions above should get you an answer.
