we have a Whirlpool electric double oven. When roasting at 200deg, there is a smoky light mist in the kitchen. Normal? Tom G


Can you post the model number please.

Also is the oven still working ok?

Do you see any blue dust inside the oven?

Yes, oven seems to work ok.

No blue dust

We moved in 5 months ago...whirlpool is new to us, had Aga before.


Ok thats fine just wanted to check.

On these whirlpool they vent out from inside the oven and out through the front of the top oven door int the kitchen. So sometimes you can get a mist in there as its the heat getting vented out so thats probberly what you are seeing.

I asked about the blue dust as what can sometimes happen on these is the heater element blows and you get blue dust inside the oven which can also vent out through the cooling system and into the kitchen. But when this happens you will loose all cooling inside the oven.

So as the oven is working ok then theres nothing to worry about as its just the heat and whatever comes off the food thats getting vented into the kitchen from the front venting system on these whirlpool ovens.
