Burning plastic smell coming from new cooktop fan.

I just used my Kenmore Elite glass smooth cooktop for the first time. There is a smell of burning plastic coming from the fan underneath. Is this normal or should I stop using it and call for service?

Sorry - this is not an answer but a question. Did you get your problem resolved. We just purchased a induction stove & oven and are having the same problem you described. Could you let me know what happened. Regards Bob

My Kenmore propane fueled gas oven gives off a powerful strong smell every time it is started. The burners on top do not. Is there any way I can correct this?


this is because the gas is on full before the oven lights
IT is an explosive situation and should be quickly corrected by an accredited gas fitter
the soot indicates an incorrect burn ratio and that will be the major part of the problem

A small crack, turns into a big crack, Short of ordering a new piece of glass, there is no "fix" sorry. YOu can continue to use it, but eventually it will run across the cook top, and then shatter the glass... Better be safe than sorry.

Stove not on - but fan comes on automatically -


it sounds as if the thermostat is broke. it could be the two wires off the thermostat are after melting together. ( burning smell). the thermostat stops power going to fan when it sences below a certain degrees. but your one has been cut out of the circuit due to the two cables melting together. this means fan will constantly stay on. you need to find and replace thermostat and make sure no cables melted together. if they are then seperate and use insulating tape to re insulate.make sure circuit breaker is off while doind this
