Samsung Range - Odor or smoke from the oven
Your oven is where the cooking happens, so every now and then certain types of smoke or odor can occur. But how do you know what's normal and what's not? Well, there's three situations which affect whether odor or smoke are normal: first time use, during self cleaning, or during normal use. This guide will tell you about each.
The provided information refers to ranges sold in Canada. The available settings and options may differ for appliances sold in other countries. Some birds are extremely sensitive to the fumes released by self-cleaning ovens. Keep your birds in well-ventilated rooms, far from the range.
The oven may have a faint, gas-like odor when it's first used out of the box due to its plastic packaging and protective oil coating. This is normal and the following steps can help reduce the smell before the oven is used for the first time:
- Make sure all plastic and packing material is removed from the oven (the oven racks may be bundled with plastic zip ties).
- Make sure the area is well ventilated.
- Run a bake cycle at 400 degrees Fahrenheit (205 °C) for one hour.
This burns off the protective oils and grime from the production process and will produce an unpleasant smell and possibly smoke.
Always open a window, turn on a ventilation fan, or both when using the Self Clean function.
It is normal for smoke and unusual odors to occur during self cleaning. This is due to residue being burned off inside the oven.
If smoke or unusual odors occur during normal use, immediately open a window, turn on a ventilation fan, or both.
Inspect the oven cavity for any spills that may have not been cleaned up. As whatever spilled begins burning, it can let off smoke, an unusual odor, or both. Clean the spill to resolve this issue (if the residue is cooked on, use the Self Clean or Steam Clean function).
If the unusual odor or smoke comes from the oven when it is completely clean, visit our Support Centre to request service.
