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...

I set my brand new GE oven to bake and it almost immediately started to smoke. It continued to smoke even after I turned it off. It smelled like burning wood. It kept smoking (15 minutes) until I unplugged...


Wherever you bought it from should have a warranty. Get them out there to look at it. The smell of burning wood is odd. Check to make sure all of the packing material was removed prior to installation. That could be burning cardboard on the outer casing of the oven.

Microwave is smoking when I use it as a convection oven


It seems to be self cleaning... burning all the oils that coats the inside from microwaving food that wasn't covered. Clean the oven well and to remove bad smells put lemon juice in a bowl and microwave.

Hi, we have a Blance BSO602 oven which has started to produce a burning plastic smell whenever it is turned on. It doesn't appear to be coming from inside the oven itself, and I know of no plastic which...


I'm guessing this unit is an oven only. Is it new or have you ahd it for a while? New ovens often smell for a little while. Probably the best thing to do is to remove the oven from its cavity and sit it on a stool or the floor. Remove the outer casing from the rear and the top. This should give you a pretty good look inside. If it's a major problem you should spot it straight away. Good luck.

Do I need to preheat the oven when cooking in the iven When using as a grill the grill smokes all the time


hi, what you need to do is turn the grill on and leave it on what is happening is all the steam and fat and grease form the cooking you have done in the oven has risen and stuck on the heating element the grill uses, so open your windows and turn the grill onto its highest setting and just leave it after a while the smoke will stop.

You need to do this so that any food you cook using the grill doesnt smell of the smoke thats burning on the grill element.

Dont worry you wont do any harm to it this is a very common problem with combo ovens and grills and the same goes for microwaves with the grill feature so dont worry to much its what happens over time if you dont use the grill much.

So just switch the grill on and leave it it can take upto 20 to 30min to stop smoking but after its burned off all the grease and fat etc it will stop smoking and stop smelling so dont worry everybody who has one goes through this same problem.


let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok.

Its best you do this once a week or so to ensure that it dont build up to much as it can really stink the whole place out and if you cook food without burning it all off your food will taste like the smell witch believe me isnt nice, so just leave it all to burn off leave your windows and doors open and after about 20 min you should find the smoke will stop and the smell will go away.

You may find it only takes 5 to 10 min but dont worry no matter how long it takes your not doing any harm your just cleaning the element.

Dont try cleaning it with cleaning products as this can cause harm to the element and could taint any food with the cleaning product you use.

The only real help you can give is that before you turn it on to burn off the grease use a stiff hand brush and brush the element to remove all the dried on loose bits this will then make it quicker to stop smoking.

But other than that just leave it and it will sort itself out.

OVEN WILL NOT BAKE , IT WILL BROIL


I have the same problem, I took off the back panel and noticed that the EOC (electronic oven control) board is blackened and most likley need to be replaced. My wife was cooking a pizza and she smelled a burning plastic smell, she looked in the oven and saw the pizza on fire and smoke bellowing from the control panel area. So i unplugged the oven and saw the circuit board did start on fire and fortunatly it went out before serious damage. No matter what you set the oven on the display shows it as being correct, but only the top element comes on and it is on HIGH!!!! DO NOT BUY FRIDGIDAIRE!!!!

Kenmore ultra self cleaning oven or top heat


I found that the 220 plug had burned out, that was where the smoke came from. The display worked because the ground "prong" was the only one burned. Had to replace the electrical 220 socked and the electrical plug on the oven.

Kitchen aid, self cleaning


The only solution is to get a new oven, The paint in the oven burned off, and now the electic board is burning out. This oven when it hits about 400 degrees it makes this chemical plastic smell, and at selfcleaning it makes the same smell for 3 1/2 hours, and come to find out it burned the paint off

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.
