Customer Question
I have a GE electric...
I have a GE electric range, age unknown. During the last couple months I've notice a sooty residue appearing above the oven door when the oven is used. Also noticed this soot on some of my white bakeware. I replaced the door seal then used the self-clean feature to clean the oven but the problem persists. The oven seems to still keep normal temps - not over or under heating. Any ideas on what causes this problem?

Thanks for counting on us to help with your appliance problem. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you! I suspect there may be something that is burning within the oven that is sooting. That is really the only thing that could or would cause any type of sooting. Sooting is the residue of burning, so if it is actually sooting and not discoloring, I suspect it is from the elements or the oven surface. Do you paint or varnish in your home or has there been any remodeling recently? Sometimes residues from those types of goings on can settle on the elements and cause this type of issue.

As I said previously, after replacing the door seal I cleaned the oven thoroughly using the self cleaning followed by wiping it out with plain water. Of course I removed the racks when cleaning the oven. Is it possible there is enough residue on the racks themselves to be causing this? In almost 50 year of using ovens I have never seen this before. Not even from much dirtier ovens!
Appliance Technician: Kelly, Appliance Technician replied 3 years ago
Sure, if there is anything on the racks, they will cause issues. Is there any odor associated with the sooting? Can you post a picture of what you are seeing?
