I have a Tricity Bendix cooker, model number SE501W, serial no 54100086. When I use the grill, smoke a fumes rise out of it, making my eyes water. What can I do?
Nothing. The cooker belongs to my landlord, not me, so I have to be careful not to risk anything. I thought that whatever was burning might burn away, but that does not seem to be happening.
When you use it does it smoke all the way through using it?
If you look inside the oven towards the top is there any grease in there?
On the second question, it is hard to answer. I can't see inside very well. I can feel some slightly flaky black stuff (not sticky) on the top inner surface of the grill oven but the elements look clean.
On the first question I also can't answer for certain, but I think the smoke was continuous. To find out, are you advising me to switch the heat on with nothing under the grill, to burn off whatever is there? If so, how long should I keep it on for? And is this a solution?
Ok to be honest when you get a fault like this its a build up of grease and fat on the cavity and on the element itself.
So when you turn the grill on the first thing it does is burn the grease and fat so they will smoke im afraid.
When this happens what you need to do is open the oven door and turn the grill on and just let it smoke.
Open the doors and windows and turn the cooker hood on if you have 1 and just leave it to smoke.
Once the grease has burnt off the smokeing will stop but depends on how bad it is it may somke for a while at first.
But this is all it will be as theres nothing in there which can burn and cause this so its just grease burning off.
If you need anymore info just get back to me.
