We bought a new Kenmore stove shortly after moving into the house and we’re really happy with it for the most part. The only downside is the smell. I expected that we’d smell something the first couple of times we used it, but it’s now three months later and it still reeks every time I turn the oven on. Even the sweet smell of Christmas cookies wasn’t enough to cover it up. Not sure what the deal is.

Has anyone else had anything like this happen? Any idea how long we can expect to continue “enjoying” the smell of our new stove or what we could do to get it to stop?

One thought on “New Stove Smell … 3 Months Later

    For anyone else having the same problem, we finally figured out that running the self-cleaning cycle for the first time got the oven hot enough to break everything in and stop it from smelling so horrible. I guess we just hadn’t had it on long enough or hot enough otherwise for the smell to wear off…
