I don't know how many times I have told my wife to not store items, pots and pans in the oven, for this very reason. We had a dinner yesterday for two of our son's families, and she was working away in the kitchen. I was in my office hiding, when I heard her talking, and coming my way. When I turned to talk, I noticed the smoke following her down the hallway. What a mess. Don't do this. After the oven cooled, I removed everything that I could, racks, and bottom metal cover above the burner. I took everything outside to the patio table. It was a matter of scraping everying off, of the wire shelves, then the pooling was on the bottom cover. I Googled what can help, the folks there talked about how common this was with plastic today, in ovens, making excuses for females and their busy schedules, making this mistake. BS, use your dam head, and realize wth you are doing. I finally got everything cleaned up today, a razor blade scraper really works well lossening the pools of plastic. A residue of sticking film was still on the cover, so I cleaned and scrubbed with a commercial cleaner. Today we reinstalled everything, and turned oven on. It smoked like hell again, more fans to flow outside, you just can't get all the residue off. It was advised to run your oven on the Cleaning Cycle to burn everything off. Several hours, but it seemed to do the trick. Just now, I noticed my wife cleaning everying like she just got a new bra. She wanted to buy a new stove, but I told her, while cleaning, that I just didn't want to talk about it. You all should talk to your wives about this, and try to avoid what I went through. I thought about making a sign and posting about stove, I even told my daughter in laws to make a sign for themselves. They both told me they don't store items in the oven. Good for them. My rant for the day.
