Question about Frigidaire 30" Self-Cleaning Freestanding Electric Range - White-on-White
Posted by vallozzi on
This happened with my oven, happened twice to the same (newer) oven actually. The smell and smoke occurred both with the oven and with the use of burners on stove top. Turned out it was the main line cord which had a split. The first repair they replaced the thermol block and all the bolts holding it into place (for a total of 9 parts) the second time (about a year later) the repairman replaced the line cord and said that it probably should have been done along with the first repair. The smell coming from the oven before the repair was a toxic burning wire or burnt plastic smell. There was also smoke if the oven was left on long enough. The repairman said that the amount of heat to "cook" the connection on the line was at a fairly dangerous level. It was recommended to me by the fire inspector (who was in my unit for annual condo inspections) that it was unsafe and to have it repaired immediately. Hope this helps. Best of luck.

The burning plastic smell if packing that is left in the oven. Who iin stalled this oven for yuu? IT would have been nice if thheey removed it for you, but I think most people look inside an oven before they use it too. There is packing holding racks in place so they don't move aroun in shipment. =) Thiss is user errror.. NOT A MANUFACTURE ERROR.. But thee consumer likes to blame everryone but themselves...
